LiCo Energy Metals Inc. is pleased to update its shareholders on the current diamond drilling program for its Teledyne and Glencore Bucke Cobalt Properties situated in Bucke and Lorrain Townships, 6 km east-northeast of Cobalt, Ontario, as originally announced on September 12th, 2017.
The Company has recently completed drilling 27 diamond drill holes for a combined depth of approximately 3,106 meters on its two cobalt mineral exploration properties in Ontario. The current drill program is designed to confirm and extend the existing known mineralization and to provide the company with sufficient drill hole information to create a geological model and a 43-101 complaint resource estimate.
On the Glencore Bucke Property, the Company has completed a total of 21 diamond drill holes totaling 1,900 m, testing the Main and Northwest zones. Visual cobalt camp style mineralization has been noted in every drill hole that the Company has logged to date. The drill program has been completed as planned, and the drill rig was demobilized earlier in the week. Historical drilling completed on the Glencore Bucke Property outlined two separate vein systems hosting significant cobalt and silver values. The Main Zone, currently is 152 m in length, and the Northwest Zone, measuring 70 m in length. The Main Zone had a north-south strike, which is hypothesized as the southern extension of the #3 vein from the Cobalt Contact Mine located immediately to the north of the Property (Bresee, 1982).
On the Company's adjoining Teledyne Property, a total of 1,206 m has been completed in 6 diamond drill holes. Drilling has intersected Cobalt camp style mineralization in each drill hole that has been logged to date. Diamond drilling is expected to continue testing targets identified by management throughout the month of November and early December.
"We are exceptionally pleased with the exploration program to date," says Tim Fernback, President & CEO of LiCo and "we look forward to the assay results that will be released over the next 30-45 days."
The results for the first five holes were summarized on the news released on November 8, 2017 and additional assay results will arrive throughout the month of November and December.
The Glencore Bucke and Teledyne Properties are managed by Joerg Kleinboeck, P.Geo., (LiCo's QP), and supervised by Dwayne Melrose, Director and Head of the Technical Advisory Board of LiCo.
The overall drilling program will be conducted as part of LiCo's flow thru financing and work commitments for the Glencore Bucke and Teledyne Properties.
