First Cobalt Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FCC)(OTCQB:FTSSF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce several high grade cobalt outcrop and muckpile samples from the Caswell mine in the Cobalt Camp. A prospecting program identified the high grade mineralization at surface in the Cobalt Central area of the Cobalt Camp in Ontario, Canada, including 9.44% cobalt, 1.27% copper and 2.92% nickel.
As quoted in the press release:
Trent Mell, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“In just six months of exploration activity in the Cobalt Camp, First Cobalt has identified cobalt mineralization styles that have never been reported in its 110-year history, further confirming the need to re-examine the camp using modern geoscience techniques. Recent prospecting suggests that smaller high grade historic cobalt mines like Caswell could be ideal targets for near-term follow up. As we ramp up our activities in 2018, these new targets will be assessed in parallel with the current exploration program focused on bulk tonnage opportunities near the former producing Bellellen, Drummond, Keeley and Frontier mines.”
