VANCOUVER, Oct. 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Cobalt Power Group Inc. (the "Company") (TSX.V: CPO, OTC Pink: CBBWF) is pleased to announce that a new outcrop been found on the Proteus property in Cobalt, Ontario, and that an exploration plan has been approved. Work has already begun, including opening up trenches and pits, which resulted in the exposing of several veins. These veins have been sampled and assay results are pending. Additionally, the Company has conducted a 2D seismic survey with the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) at Laurentian University in Sudbury.
"We are excited about the new outcrop and vein showings on our Proteus concession," comments Dr. Andreas Rompel, President & CEO. "In order to increase opportunities to detect mineralization, we plan to continue opening up more strike length along these veins."
The Company also announces completion of a structural analysis of the Smith Cobalt East outcrop. A major fault that was detected by the aeromagnetic survey conducted last year has been opened. Details of the analysis are described below.
Five samples collected from the Temiskaming Project shaft area (one from each side of the shaft and three from surface immediately adjacent to the shaft) have been submitted for analysis. The zones sampled are located in NW-trending Keewatin volcanics.
Four historic drill holes (1985 and 1986) appear to undercut this zone. These holes were reported to intersect significant Au and Ag values (no Co assays were taken). Hole 86-23 intersected 0.58m at 6.21 g/t Au (0.181 oz/T); hole 86-28 intersected 0.24m at 694 g/t Ag (20.24 oz/T); hole 85-16 intersected 0.25m at 679 g/t Ag (19.79 oz/T) and 0.15m at 428 g/t Ag (12.48 oz/T); hole 86-13 intersected 465 g/t Au over 0.1m (13.55 oz/T). In addition, the geological description of 86-13 mentions 70% cobalt arsenide in a narrow vein. These intersections all occur in the Keewatin volcanics (rhyolite and intermediate breccias), close to the upper contact of the Nipissing diabase sill. These intersections are taken from reports generated by the project operator at the time (Proteus Resources Inc.), and have not been independently verified by Cobalt Power.
A 2D seismic survey was conducted on October 10 and 11, 2017, as part of a province-wide initiative by Laurentian University's MERC. SA Explorations, a leading seismic surveying company, performed field operations. Surveying covered 7.7 km in a general NNW-SSE direction in the northern part of the Smith Cobalt area. The results are expected to assist in regional and local structural and stratigraphic interpretations.
A structural analysis completed on the Smith Cobalt East outcrop has yielded a good understanding of the structural controls for the vein swarms. The findings on the behaviour of the faults are fundamental to the understanding of the paragenesis of the geology of the veins and surrounding lithologies. At least five subvertical calcite vein sets were discovered in the outcrop, the majority of which strike NW-SE, with smaller sets striking N-S and E-W. Of further note: in this location the mineralization lies in Coleman sediments above the Nipissing diabase sill (at Smith Cobalt, the sill lies above the sediments).
