MetalsTech’s (ASX:MTC) sampling program has confirmed the presence of high grade cobalt mineralisation at its Bay Lake Cobalt Project in Ontario, Canada.
Bay Lake is located 10 kilometres southwest of the historical Cobalt Mining Camp in the Cobalt Township on the eastern shore of Bay Lake in Coleman Township.
Significant results from the program includes:
- 1.17% cobalt and 7.7 g/t silver recovered from a surface “dump” pile at the Van Chester (Last Chance) Prospect;
- 0.40% cobalt recovered at the historic Price Prospect exploration pit where historic sampling of a surface “dump” pile returned 2.14% cobalt and 1,740 g/t silver;
- 0.61%, 0.34% and 0.15% cobalt were recovered surrounding the historic Bay Lake exploration shaft where earlier in-vein sampling of the cobaltite vein below the ground assayed 15.36% cobalt; and
- 3.45 g/t gold and 44.5 g/t silver also recovered around the Bay Lake exploration shaft and pit suggesting the potential for copper-silver-gold in the area.
The results from MetalsTech’s recent field program has confirmed the potential for both high grade cobalt hosted within calcite veins as well as disseminated cobalt bearing mineralisation at surface.
The next stage of development includes the final interpretation of recent magnetic surveys before commencing a follow-up field program and the company’s maiden drilling campaign.
