International Cobalt Corp. (CSE:CO) (the “Company” or “International Cobalt”) is pleased to announce that it has received and compiled data from the Idaho Geological survey branch that had previously been confidential on the Company’s Blackbird Creek Cobalt Project (“Blackbird Creek” or “The Project”).
The recently released data relates to historical exploration work completed in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Although some of this data was previously known to the company, the entirety of the reports have never been made public. The company has compiled the information along with soil sampling data from the USGS and has been able to relate it to airborne geophysics recently completed by the company.
The compilation work has greatly assisted the company in the design of a field program for spring and summer of 2018. The field program will consist of property wide soil program with a more concentrated focus on target areas that have been developed through our compilation work. Channel sampling will be completed on a number of tourmaline breccia’s identified in and around the Ludwig showing and other mineralized outcrop as they are encountered. The company will also complete geological mapping and sampling of targeted geophysical anomalies along the eastern portion of its claim group including newly acquired claims (see news release dated February 21). The area of these anomalies although well within the geological unit hosting most of the known showings and mines within the Idaho Cobalt Belt has had little or no known sampling or detailed geological mapping.
