Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. (TSXV:CCW) (OTC:CCWOF) (Frankfurt: 4T9B) (the "Company" or "Canada Silver Cobalt") is pleased to announce that a 3,000-meter drill program has begun with two drills turning at its Graal-Nourricier-Lac Suzanne property in the Lac St-Jean region of Quebec
The drill program is part of the Company's early-stage exploration activities in northern Québec where it is evaluating 15 properties on 689 claims covering 38,129.4 hectares that are prospective for battery metals nickel, copper, and cobalt (See February 16, April 21 and July 22, 2021 news releases). The drill program is currently being managed by Laurentia Exploration in association with GoldMinds Geoservices Inc.
The Company has existing drill permits for most of the proposed drill hole set-ups, which will allow testing of the Bouguer (geophysical) anomalies contained within the Graal-Nourricier-Lac Suzanne property . This promising anomaly has not been fully explored. It is one of the five properties included in the Company's geophysical airborne surveys conducted earlier this year and it is regarded as geologically one of the most promising in the short term. The detailed airborne gravity survey of five properties conducted earlier this year by Sander Geophysics Ltd. to enable identification of the highest Bouguer Anomaly of the anorthositic complex confirmed that the highest potential target area is on Graal property.
The Company is seeking to identify significant amounts of nickel-copper-sulphide mineralization at the base of the magmatic chamber. Historic drill results indicate mineralization on the side of the magmatic reservoir and it is theorized that the massive sulphide cumulates are potentially hidden at depth. The drill program aims to intersect deep targets and as well the rim contact at shallower depth.
Additionally, the Company has hired the professional services of Archéo-Mamu Côte-Nord to carry out a study on potential archeological sites in the area.
The technical information in this news release has been reviewed by Claude Duplessis, P.Eng., GoldMinds Geoservices Inc., a member of the Québec Order of Engineers, and is a qualified person in accordance with the National Instrument 43- 101 standards.
About Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc.
Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. recently discovered a major high-grade silver vein system at Castle East located 1.5 km from its 100%-owned, past-producing Castle Mine near Gowganda in the prolific and world-class silver-cobalt mining district of Northern Ontario. This discovery has the highest silver resource grade in the world, with recent drill intercepts of up to 89,853 grams/tonne silver (2,621 oz/ton Ag). A drill program is underway to expand the size of the deposit with an update to the resource estimate scheduled for Q1 2022.
In May 2020, based on a small initial drill program, the Company published the region's first 43-101 resource estimate that contained a total of 7.56 million ounces of silver in Inferred resources, comprising very high-grade silver (8,582 grams per tonne un-cut or 250.2 oz/ton) in 27,400 tonnes of material from two sections (1A and 1B) of the Castle East Robinson Zone, beginning at a vertical depth of approximately 400 meters. Note that mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Please refer to Canada Silver Cobalt Works Press Release May 28, 2020, for the resource estimate. Report reference: Rachidi, M. 2020, NI 43-101 Technical Report Mineral Resource Estimate for Castle East, Robinson Zone, Ontario, Canada, with an effective date of May 28, 2020, and a signature date of July 13, 2020.
Canada Silver Cobalt's flagship silver-cobalt Castle mine and 78 sq. km Castle Property feature strong exploration upside for silver, cobalt, nickel, gold, and copper. With underground access at the fully owned Castle Mine, an exceptional high-grade silver discovery at Castle East, a pilot plant to produce cobalt-rich gravity concentrates on site, a processing facility (TTL Laboratories) in the town of Cobalt, and a proprietary hydrometallurgical process known as Re-2Ox (for the creation of technical-grade cobalt sulphate as well as nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) formulations), Canada Silver Cobalt is strategically positioned to become a Canadian leader in the silver-cobalt space.
