Primary Cobalt Corp. and Exco Mining (Spain) Announce Results of Grab Samples from Past Producing Projects

- July 16th, 2018

Primary Cobalt Corp. (CSE – Prim) (“Primary” or the “Company”) is please to announce the results of grab samples taken during May 2018 due diligence site visits.

Primary Cobalt Corp. (CSE – Prim) (“Primary” or the “Company”) is please to announce the results of grab samples taken during May 2018 due diligence site visits. The samples were taken from the Cobalt, Copper, Silver, Lead, Nickel and Manganese projects, inside one of the galleries on its Buran permit permits in Almeria and from the waste dumps of old cobalt mines located within the Beatriz permit in Granada province in southern Spain.

Daniel Porras, Dipl.-Geol, member European Federation of Geologists (“EFG”) who is a Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101, supervised the collection of the samples (Buran Sample). The samples were submitted to ALS Minerals in Seville, Spain for analysis. The samples were crushed, split, a portion was pulverized and a one-gram aliquot analyzed by ALS Chemex method ME-MS61 (48 elements, including Si, Cu, Pb, four-acid ICP-MS). Some relevant results among others are summarized in the table below, in grey colour the anomalous values:


PROJECT SAMPLE Ag (ppm) Co (ppm) Cu (ppm) Mo (ppm) Ni (ppm) Pb (ppm) Zn (ppm)
BURAN PROJECT PC18-05 0.89 18.3 28,7 1520 11.3 4680 294

  BE-ENC-1 15.2 6040 2990 0.6 1670 9710 15
The main target pursued in these projects is the cobalt minerals and typical paragenesis (Ag, Cu, Ni and others) and although in the Buran project it was not possible to get access to the cobalt rich samples in the old galleries, it were found very interesting mineralizations with high molybdenum contents and overall a massive dike that shows silver at 968ppm (0.0968 %), content of 1%/kg per ton, 1.5% Copper and 20% Lead,. Regarding Beatriz project, the high cobalt contents found in the samples with important contents in nickel and copper makes also very relevant and encouraging the results obtained. The grab samples are selected samples and may not be representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. On July 11, 2018 London Metal Exchange (LME) quoted, Silver at $15.80/oz, Copper at $2.78/lb and Lead at $1.00/lb.

Historic Highlights

  • The mineralization is enriched in several elements (Co-Ni-Ag-Se-As-Hg) that entry into the category of RSE (redox-sensitive elements). The mineralization is stratified with high TOC dolomites affected by thrusts, a Mississippy Valley-type origin can be extrapolated for this deposit, with the origin of the metals in the washing of marine series or from the mafic intercalations into the series, with the carbonate/dolomite formations as a “reducing trap” for mineralization.
  • The concentrations of primary cobalt minerals are important and with further exploration to determine to their regional extension. This type of deposit can be very widespread in Betica, and could also concentrate elements of the platinum group. It is quite similar to the D.R.C. mineralizations.

Pat Morris, President of Primary, said, “The analytical results from this sampling program will assist us in identifying potential target areas for core drilling during our exploration program. The unexpected high contents in other important elements are very encouraging and speak to the potential upside in our search for these critical energy metals.”
