First Cobalt gets rights to
contiguous property at Keeley-Frontier
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V) has secured an option to acquire 100% rights on a prospective mining claim adjacent to the Keeley-Frontier project in the Cobalt, Ontario mining camp. The property joins First Cobalt’s properties to the east and west, further consolidating the land surrounding Keeley-Frontier. The property contains known mineralization, which could be associated with a fault structure that also hosts the Wettlaufer silver-cobalt mine. Work will begin to determine the continuity of the Wetlaufer fault structure and to test if there are cobalt-rich veins systems.

Frank Santaguida, VP, Exploration for First Cobalt said, “This expansion increases the opportunity to explore for the extensions to this silver-cobalt vein system; especially those that are cobalt enriched. This eastern area has largely been forgotten due to the low silver versus high cobalt characteristic.”

The centre of the claim is over 500 metres west of the Keeley-Frontier deposit and approximately 1.5 km south of the Bellellen Mine, which boasts an average grade of 9.25% cobalt and 11.55% nickel from over 12 tons of ore that were once shipped (McIlwaine, 1970).
