Canada Silver Cobalt Ramps Up Drilling at Castle East Discovery, Closes $1.2 Million Private Placement
June 15, 2020 (Source) – Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. (TSXV: CCW) (OTC: CCWOF) (Frankfurt: 4T9B) (the “Company” or “Canada Silver Cobalt”) is pleased to announce the Company has closed a flow-through private placement with strategic investors, raising gross proceeds of $1.2 million by issuing 2,000,000 units at $0.60 per flow-through unit (see details below).
Proceeds of the flow-through private placement will be used to further ramp up drilling and exploration over the coming weeks at the Company’s 100%-owned Castle East high-grade silver discovery in Northern Ontario’s Gowganda Camp.
Wedge Holes Take Aim At Rich Second “Trunk” Potential
After extending the original Robinson Zone high-grade discovery vein 47 meters up-dip through drill hole CS-20-24 from surface, geologists are now resuming a wedge hole strategy that proved to be very effective last winter when the extremely rich Robinson Zone was first delineated, leading to a maiden Inferred resource estimate (refer to May 28, 2020 news release).
Starting today, an initial two wedge holes, drilled up-dip from different directions based on the orientation of the vein, are targeting the extension of the high-grade vein discovered 95 meters below the Robinson Zone in drill hole CS-20-22 that was not included in the resource estimate (8,339 g/t Ag or 243 oz/ton over 0.35m within 0.60m of 4,971 g/t Ag or 145 oz/ton, estimated at 50% to 70% true width). This vein, featuring native dendritic silver (large “rosettes”), has a different texture to it than the vein in the original discovery, suggesting the Castle East mineralizing event was driven by multiple phases.
Matt Halliday, VP Exploration, commented: “It appears we have found the first two ‘trunks’ of this system. Based on district geology we expect to find branches off these trunks and a possible connection between these trunks through a network of veins.
“We have a very large area that has never been systematically drill tested, so the scale potential is very significant. We know we have the grade with 7.6 million Inferred ounces at 250 oz/ton in a very concentrated area, ideal for accessing through a ramp,” Halliday concluded.
