Cobalt resources present oligopoly, the global cobalt upstream resources are mainly controlled by multinational mining enterprises such as Canon, Luoyang Molybdenum, Eurasian Resources, etc. The cobalt production of the three enterprises accounts for more than 40% of the global proportion. China's cobalt reserves of 135,000 tons, accounting for 1.95% of the global total reserves. And there are problems such as low grade, high separation difficulty, associated minerals, small deposit size, etc., the imbalance between supply and demand leads to a high degree of external dependence, cobalt raw materials dependence on foreign countries. China's current known cobalt ore production sites are more than 150, distributed in 24 provinces (autonomous regions), mainly in Gansu, Shandong, Yunnan, Hebei, Qinghai, Shanxi 6 provinces, accounting for 70%.

China's nickel reserves are 3.98 million tons, accounting for about 4.39% of the world. Nickel ore type is mainly divided into two categories: copper-nickel sulfide ore and laterite nickel ore, and China is mainly dominated by copper-nickel sulfide ore, accounting for about 90% of the national total. China's nickel ore is mainly distributed in Gansu, the reserved reserves account for about 60% of the country, Jinchuan nickel mine is the world's third largest nickel mine, is the world's famous polymetallic symbiosis of large copper-nickel sulfide deposits.
