First Cobalt fortsätter att addera mark till sina projekt i Kanada. Idag har de säkrat upp en option på 100% av mineralrättigheterna för ett mindre område som gränsar till deras projekt Keeley-Frontier.
First Cobalt Acquires Rights to Contiguous Property at Keeley-Frontier
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – July 18, 2017) – First Cobalt Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FCC)(OTCQB:FTSSF) (the ”Company”) is pleased to announce the it has secured an option to acquire 100% rights on a prospective mining claim adjacent to the Keeley-Frontier project in the Cobalt, Ontario mining camp.
- The property joins First Cobalt’s properties to the east and west, further consolidating the land surrounding Keeley-Frontier
- The property contains known mineralization, which could be associated with a fault structure that also hosts the Wettlaufer silver-cobalt mine
- Work will commence to determine the continuity of the Wetlaufer fault structure and to test if cobalt-rich veins systems similar to Bellellen and Frontier occur in this area
Frank Santaguida, Vice President, Exploration commented:
”Expansion of First Cobalt’s property to the east of the Keeley-Frontier increases the opportunity to explore for the extensions to this silver-cobalt vein system; especially those that are cobalt enriched. This eastern area has largely been forgotten due to the low silver versus high cobalt characteristic. This transaction demonstrates our commitment to consolidate the meaningful property positions within the Camp our strategy to be the first to approach this camp from a bulk mining perspective.”
The centre of the claim is over 500 metres west of the Keeley-Frontier deposit (Figure 1) and approximately 1.5 km south of the Bellellen Mine, which boasts an average grade of 9.25% cobalt and 11.55% nickel from over 12 tons of ore that were once shipped (McIlwaine, 1970). This area east of Keeley-Frontier also contains the Haileybury Mine, which is also cobalt- and nickel- rich and relatively low in silver, thus only minor working and drilling has been done here.
