ONTARIO – Canada Cobalt Works (formerly Castle Silver) of Coquitlam, B.C., continues its bulk sampling program at the former Castle mine near the town of Cobalt in Northern Ontario. The sample tested 2.46% cobalt and 6,173 g/t silver.

Underground bulk sampling will be followed by more drilling and additional rehabilitation. The latest sample came from the fist level of the mine. Besides cobalt and silver, it also assayed 1.0% nickel. The sample weighed only 35 km, so Canada Cobalt reminds readers that the grade may not be representative of 43-101-compliant resources. Additional native silver was also recovered.

Canada Cobalt continues to test its proprietary Re-2OX hydrometallurgical technology for cobalt battery metals at SGS Canada’s lab in Lakefield, Ont. To take the process to full pilot scale, Canada Cobalt has hired Dr. Ron Molnar as a special advisor.
