Jeffrey Cocks, President and CEO said: “The Thomas Edison mine, originally developed by the famous inventor and entrepreneuras a source of cobalt for his revolutionary iron-cobalt batteries, was a landmark acquisition for the Company. It became clear that that a name change was needed to reflect value of this acquisition for the company.”
Finally, initial results from the Company’s summer exploration program, which includes the current diamond drilling program on the Thomas Edison Mine property, and extensive regional mapping and prospecting program on the Kittson Cobalt Project (see news release August 13, 2018) are expected to be released shortly. The extensive regional mapping and prospecting program will trace the full extent of the fracture system which hosts Thomas Edison, Shakt-Davis, and Kittson mines as well as follow up on initial prospecting on the western claim group acquired in late 2017 (see new release November 22, 2017).
About the Kittson–Cobalt Project
The Project is located near the town of Cobalt in northeast Ontario, Canada. The Project hosts the historic Thomas Edison, Shakt-Davis and Cobalt-Kittson mines, as well as numerous historic workings, the deepest extending down to 628 feet, and over 2,500 feet of lateral workings. Cobalt mineralization occurs in Proterozoic-aged quartz-carbonate veins hosted in brittle shears in Nipissing diabase. This style of mineralization is similar to that of the famous Cobalt Silver Camp Located ~15 km east of the Property, which produced 420 million ounces of silver with cobalt as a significant by-product. Veins hosting the mineralization at the Kittson-Cobalt Project differ from the typical Cobalt Silver Camp veins in that they are lower in silver but richer in cobalt, and are associated with significant gold. Historic reports from the Shakt-Davis mine indicate values of 1.5% Co over 1.37 metres and select grab samples returning up to 4% Co and 93.3 g/t Au. Locally significant nickel, copper and to a lesser extend lead, zinc and bismuth also occur within the quartz-carbonate veins.
