Cobalt Blockchain Inc. (the Company or COBC) TSXV:PET transitioning to TSXV:COBC at the opening of business March 23, 2018) is pleased to announce that it has entered into two definitive joint venture agreements for cobalt / copper concessions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) totalling over 48 square kilometers. The Company has also submitted an application to the DRC Ministry of Mines for a cobalt / copper trading and export license.

As quoted in the press release:

“The properties announced today represent the initial strategic concessions for our DRC cobalt portfolio,” said Peter Hooper, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.  “Beyond acquiring or joint venturing exploration projects with the potential for large-scale, high-grade cobalt deposits, our strategic focus also includes adding projects that have near-surface mineralization and where we can generate early cash flow by responsibly engaging with artisanal and small-scale (ASM) producers.  More than twelve percent of global cobalt production currently originates from ASM operations in the DRC and our announcement today represents another step forward in delivering certified, ethically-sourced cobalt to the market in the near-term.”
