First Cobalt Acquires Property Near Silver Banner

First Cobalt Corp. is pleased to announce the purchase of five unpatented claims located in the North Cobalt region of the Cobalt Camp in Ontario near First Cobalt’s past producing Silver Banner and Ophir mines.

TORONTO, ON — (January 4, 2018) – First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC, ASX: FCC, OTCQB: FTSSF) (the “Company” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFF7GH4WKSU&t=20s) is pleased to announce the purchase of five unpatentedclaims located in the North Cobalt region of the Cobalt Camp in Ontario near First Cobalt’s past producing Silver Banner and Ophir mines.

Highlights

  • Three of the claims are contiguous to First Cobalt properties to the east of the Silver Banner and Ophir mines
  • As limited exploration has been conducted on these claims, First Cobalt intends to conduct mapping as well as soil and till geochemical surveys as part of a grassroots exploration program in 2018
  • Claims include ground containing Huronian Supergroup conglomerate in contact with Nipissing diabase; a favourable geological setting for cobalt-silver mineralization

Trent Mell, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“This area of North Cobalt is of particular interest as some of the more significant past-producing cobalt mines are nearby, including the Silver Banner mine where we reported high grade cobalt samples.”

The claims, located in Northern part of the Cobalt Camp (Figure 1), cover 750 hectares to the east of the historic Silver Banner and Ophir mines. Assay results from muckpile grab samples taken from Silver Banner included 1.14% Co, 0.69% Co and 0.47% Co.

Silver Banner was among the smaller historic silver mines, yet the veins contain a cobalt-silver-nickel relationship comparable to some of the larger mineralized vein systems in the Cobalt Camp, such as the Nipissing, Crown Reserve, Kerr Lake and Silverfields mines. High grade cobalt would not have been the focus of past exploration, so similar systems could have been overlooked in the new claim areas.

These claims further consolidate highly prospective properties within the North Cobalt area. Limited exploration has been conducted on these claims and work contemplated for the summer of 2018 will include soil and till geochemical surveys as well as field mapping.
