CBLT Further Financing and Quebec Exploration Update
Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 7, 2017) – CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT) (“CBLT”) announces it has closed on a further $200,000 of previously announced flow-through financing from an institutional investor.
Cobalt is a necessary ingredient in the cathode in lithium-ion batteries. Management believes the world is suffering through a prolonged global cobalt deficit, where the demand for cobalt for these batteries far exceeds supply, and that this global deficit will continue for the foreseeable future as more batteries are created and as production of cobalt continues to slump. This deficit creates an opportunity for CBLT’s shareholders.
CBLT has set its exploration priorities for 2017. CBLT owns 100% of all the properties discussed below.
Results from Phase 1 of exploration at Chilton Cobalt in Quebec are expected in the near future. This phase consisted of 700 samples (650 soil, 50 rock) and a VLF survey. Management intends that Phase 2 begin shortly after interpretation of Phase 1 is completed. Pictures of some of the samples submitted for analysis can be found in CBLT’s twitter feed at @cbltinc.
In Gowganda, part of the Cobalt Embayment in Ontario, CBLT’s consulting geologist has submitted his report from his site visit in June, 2017 to the board, and based upon that report the board is strategizing the next phase of exploration.
At its main Sudbury cobalt/gold asset, in November 2016 CBLT carried out a diamond drill program after a successful summer surface program. The results of that program showed continuity of gold and cobalt mineralization throughout the drilled portion of a quartz vein. CBLT has begun to carry out a further surface work program intended to better understand the property and to lay the foundation for a future second drill program. If conditions warrant, CBLT may carry out that drill program in the latter part of 2017.
Management believes CBLT’s treasury is well funded to carry out these programs.
