CBLT closes gold deal for cash while receiving an equity position

Well-managed small cap continues successful M&A activity

Project generator CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT) closes yet another deal. This time CBLT Inc. has closed the sale of its 56% share of the Northshore Gold Property Joint Venture to private company Omni Commerce Corp. (“Omni“). For the sale CBLT Inc. has been paid $350,000 in cash and $1,100,000 in common shares of Omni.

For those investors not familiar with CBLT, it is a well-managed small cap company that focuses on making cash positive deals to avoid stock dilution while at the same time also gaining equity share exposure in the new venture. The strategy is effectively building stakes in junior cobalt and precious metal companies and projects in Canada in addition to owning several of their own projects.

CBLT to retain significant equity in Omni which plans to immediately develop the Northshore Gold Property

What is positive about the Omni deal is CBLT becoming a significant shareholder in Omni. This is because Omni intends to acquire the remaining 44% interest of the Northshore Gold Property from Balmoral Resources Ltd. CBLT says that it “has also been advised by Omni that Omni has submitted a listing application to the Canadian Securities Exchange,” and that “Omni intends to change its name to ‘Ready, Set, Gold!’ to better demonstrate its business focus, and that Omni intends to aggressively develop Northshore Gold immediately.”

CBLT Inc.’s CEO Peter M. Clausi commented that the company is “happy with our equity position which gives us passive ongoing exposure to gold and to Omni’s development success. It also allows us to continue our plan to create shareholder value by continuing with strategic M&A activity, as with Northshore Gold, and by developing our Canadian mining assets. We expect to be in the field at Big Duck Lake, also in Hemlo, later this year.”

The Northshore Gold Property sits on the Schreiber-Hemlo Greenstone Belt and hosts the Afric Zone, about 115 kms west of Hemlo and 200 kms east of Thunder Bay, Canada. Indicated Resources are 391,000 ounces of gold, with an additional 824,000 ounces of inferred resources, all found within the Afric Zone.

Past drilling programs have been undertaken in the region over the last few years, including some high grade intercepts of 12.49 g/t over 33.2 metres and 4.35g/t over 14.6 metres. The Afric Gold Zone continues to demonstrate significant mineralized widths to depth, highlighted by an intercept of 124.50 metres grading 1.05 g/t gold in hole WB-18-54. The Resource has a broad mineralized envelope which includes a high grade core, which returned 7.00 m grading 11.15 g/t gold, including 1.00 m grading 56.50 g/t gold. The deposit, and the high grade core, have now demonstrated continuity to a little over 250 vertical metres depth and remain open.

Closing remarks

For investors wanting a well-managed exploration and deal project generator company with a very low market cap, then CBLT Inc. is well worth a long look. With a market cap of only C$3.26m, investors gain exposure to over 12 projects with base metals (Co, Ni, Cu) and precious metals potential (Au, Ag, PGMs), as well as equity exposure to other small explorers such as Omni. The potential valuation proposition is outstanding. The outcome for investors will depend on continued exploration and deal success. One to follow closely.




CBLT offers investors early stage exposure to a very large number of cobalt and precious metals projects in Canada

One of the biggest trends in 2020 is the US moving to secure supply of critical materials such as the battery materials, including the hardest of all to source, cobalt. Combine this with the benefits of safe haven assets such as silver and gold, and you get a perfect combination of safety and growth. One Canadian company has built a large portfolio of Canadian located assets with a focus on cobalt as well as precious metals such as gold, silver, nickel, copper, and PGMs. Even better the Company is still trading at a fraction of its future potential value, assuming it succeeds in the long run.

That company is CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT).

CBLT Inc. is a project generator with a focus on quality cobalt projects, ideally associated with valuable by-products such as base (Ni, Cu) or precious metals (Au, Au, PGMs), in safe jurisdictions such as Canada. The Company prioritizes shareholders interests by minimizing stock dilution by bringing in cash from M&A deal flow and JV deals. CBLT is a believer in building up new ethical sources of cobalt that will be in high demand as the EV boom accelerates in future years. The Company prefers projects with poly-metallic potential or at least cobalt and some precious metals.

CBLT Inc.’s has numerous projects and JVs in Canada.

CBLT’s Copper Prince Project is their flagship project located within Falconbridge Township, in the Sudbury Mining District of Ontario, Canada. The Property is comprised of sixteen contiguous patented mining claims totaling 256 ha and has Cu-Ni-PGM and gold occurrences. Sample 616311 found 54.3g/t Au and 5,020 ppm (0.502%) Co. Other grab samples included sample 616313 that returned 12.8 g/t Au, 0.47% Co, and sample 616318 that returned 4.31 g/t Au, 0.44% Co.

CBLT’s Chilton Cobalt Project is in the Grenville Subprovince in Quebec and contains two areas with large nickel-copper-cobalt-chromium findings. CBLT is currently in the permitting process for excavation and a maiden drill program.

In 2018 CBLT sold the Bloom Lake Property to Winmar Resources Ltd (ASX: WFE) in a deal that saw CBLT retain a 10% management fee, as well as 16 million shares in Winmar. Winmar’s shares are currently suspended as they seek approval to buy half of a cobalt processing facility in the DRC. Bloom Lake assay results have confirmed high-grade copper-cobalt mineralization with anomalous gold and nickel. The most notable was Sample 853028, taken south of the No. 1 audit, which assayed 6.84% cobalt, 0.422 g/t gold, 0.58% copper and 1.56% nickel.

On June 1, 2020 CBLT Inc. announced that they have sold their 56% joint venture share in Northshore Gold for cash and equity to Omni Commerce Corp. The total consideration payable to CBLT in respect of the transaction is $1,450,000 consisting of: Cash consideration of $350,000 and stock consideration of $1,100,000 payable by the issuance of post-consolidation common shares in Omni’s capital on closing.

Closing remarks

There is little doubt that as the EV revolution accelerates the world will need more cobalt, especially from safe countries such as Canada.

Investing into CBLT Inc. gives investors exposure to a very large number of Canadian cobalt and other valuable metals (gold, silver, nickel, copper, PGMs) exploration projects, as well as equity exposure to several other explorers that have bought projects from CBLT, such as Winmar and Omni.

Due to management’s focus to avoid stock dilution by successful deal flow, CBLT Inc. has a small share register of just 70.24 million shares outstanding. The current market cap is just C$2.1 million. This means that investors that are willing to invest early and show some patience have the potential to be highly rewarded for taking the risk of an early stage smaller cap mining stock. One to watch.
