Go Cobalt Acquires Nickel Palladium Platinum Project in Quebec
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 28, 2019) - Go Cobalt Mining Corp. (CSE: GOCO) ("Go Cobalt" and/or the "Company") is pleased to update regarding a new 100% owned nickel palladium platinum project ("Property") in Quebec, Canada.
- Go Cobalt acquires a 40 claim 2000 Ha nickel-copper-platinum group elements project.
- Grades range up to 0.72% Ni, >2% Cu, 0.14% Co, 361 ppb Au, 147 ppb Pt, and 220 ppt Pa.
- The claim is centered on a subtle magnetic anomaly in an anorthosite complex.
- Property is easily accessible with float plane from Havre-Saint-Pierre about 100km south.
Go Cobalt focuses on battery metals in Canada. Our flagship Monster Cu-Co project is in the Yukon and the Barachois V-Pb-Zn project is in eastern Quebec. With this new acquisition Go Cobalt expands their battery metals portfolio to include nickel, one of the fastest-growing battery metals in the EV Boom.
Nickel is used in both the creation of stainless steel and lithium-ion batteries. It is set to see demand increase as new lithium-ion production facilities ramp up production output.
The new property is located about 100km north of Havre-Saint-Pierre. The site is float plane accessible and there is a forest service road 5km to the south. In the 90's a series of EM anomalies on the property was followed up with trenching. This trenching identified massive pyrrhotite veins on two of the showings, the Hamlet and the EGP. On the Hamlet showing an average of five samples yielded 0.69% Cu, 0.53% Ni, 0.09% Co and 83 ppb Pt. On the EGP showing an average of seven samples yielded 0.71% Cu, 0.33% Ni, 0.04% Co, 86 ppb Pt, 145 ppb Pa, and 109 ppb Au.
The showings occur on the north and south end of the property, on the edges of an anorthosite complex. The anorthosite complex in the middle is a magnetic low with some subtle magnetic features that may be associated with sulphide mineralization.
Ni-Cu-PGE Prospect Comparison
Massive sulphides in layered magmatic deposits can be remobilized during tectonic reworking. Commonly copper becomes more remobilized than nickel and PGE's. The occurrence of several veins on the property on the edges of an anorthosite complex indicates there is potential for more extensive mineralization.
