Thank you for writing in. Finding a new positive battery cable is easiest online. You can check the parts stores near you, and see if they have the ability to order one for you. The GM dealership should also be able to order it for you, if they don't already have it in stock. While a salvage yard is an option, the cable you are looking for is available online, and installing a new cable is always the best choice. 

Good luck!
