COBALT: ePower Metals completes sampling program for Sweet Repose Adit



Vancouver – ePower Metals Inc. announces that the Company has completed a sampling and structural mapping program for the Sweet Repose Adit. Thirty-six samples have been submitted from the Sweet Repose Adit sampling program for assay. In addition, the Company has resubmitted 788 soil samples from the Panther Creek 2017 sampling program for gold assays in light of the high gold values found in outcrop in the same program; 19 g/t Au over 0.3 metres (“m”) and 6 g/t Au over 1m announced January 22, 2018.

President Michael Collins comments, “We are pleased with the progress of the Panther Creek project since signing the option agreement in fall of 2017 and impressed with the highgrade gold we have identified in secondary vein/breccia outcrops. With only light snow on the ground right now we look forward to restarting the soils sampling program in a few weeks leading into structural surveys and geophysical studies with the aim of drilling for cobalt in the summer of 2018. It will be a busy year at Panther Creek.”

ePower is currently working to see if it is viable to re-enter the Little Deer Creek Adit where historic sampling has returned values of 1% Co over 3m* as well as adits on the Long Dyke Patent claims. Additionally, permitting of road reactivation and several proposed drill sites is underway. Work planned for the spring and summer of 2018 will include expanded soil and outcrop sampling, geophysical work and drilling.

Further to the Company’s press release of February 15, 2018, ePower has also retained the services of Nancy Curry, to provide Investor Relations services to the Company including communicating with investment dealers, advisers and shareholders – both current and prospective – to increase awareness of and interest in the Company.
