Quantum Cobalt Acquires Past Producing Nipissing Lorrain Mine Project Near Cobalt, Ontario

 

 

 

 

 

Quantum Cobalt Corp. (CSE: QBOT) (OTC: BRVVF) (FRA: 23B) has entered into an option to acquire 100 per cent of the Nipissing Lorrain Cobalt Project located 26km South East of Cobalt, Ontario. The property consists of two separate claims and is adjacent to First Cobalt’s ‘Silver Centre’ claims. Six separate underground workings have been historically mined for Cobalt-Silver-Nickel.

 

 

About the Nipissing Lorrain Cobalt Project:

 

 

Location

 

The Nipissing Lorrain Mine Cobalt property is located 26km southeast of the town of Cobalt near the eastern border of Ontario. Cobalt is the epicentre of past Cobalt mining in Ontario. The district is mining friendly, with a rich history of cobalt and silver production. 

 

 

Property Status and Configuration

 

The property consists of 29 claim units for approximately 464 Hectares.

 

 

Access and Infrastructure

 

The Property is accessible by road, 26km from Cobalt. From north Cobalt, follow Highway 567 to Silver centre. After 26.85km turn left on Maiden Road and continue for a further 4.35km. The road passes through the property with the Staples Vein visible on the left-hand side of the road. Past production means power and infrastructure is accessible within the area.

 

 

Mineralization

 

Cobalt, silver and nickel mineralization occur on multiple fracture zones and veins within the property. Mineralisation is associated with calcite veins within close proximity to diabase sills. Mineralisation occurs as Co-Fe-Ni Arsenides, argentite, niccolite and native Silver. Silver grades up to 261 g/t, and Cobalt grades up to 14.75% have been reported from the property. This information is from Mineral Deposit Inventory for Ontario (MDI31M03NW00011 & MDI31M03NW00024).

 

 

History

 

Sporadic mining and exploration has continued on the property since 1925. The first shafts were sunk into the Staples vein in 1925 by Nipissing Mining Co. Ltd. Underground mining continued until 1940 with numerous shafts and up to 5 different mining levels developed. Total production is reported as 2507kg Co, 1597kg Ni and 10,886kg Ag from 122 tonnes. From 1961 until 1967 further exploration, sampling and geophysics programs were completed. Since then, bulk sampling has been completed on the Staples Vein waste pile in 1982 and 1994. “Grades from bulk sampling ranged from 0.05oz/t to 1.25 oz/t Ag (for a 20lb sample)”. This information is from Mineral Deposit Inventory for Ontario (MDI31M03NW00011).

 

 

Agreement terms

 

Quantum has the option to acquire 100 per cent of the Nipissing Lorrain Cobalt Project in a Cash and Share Exchange Agreement (the “Agreement”) in consideration for:

 

  • Payment for an aggregate amount of $1,000,000 to be paid upon the following:
    • Payment of $500,000 upon closing of the Agreement;
    • Payment of $250,000 upon 3 month anniversary from closing of the Agreement
    • Payment of $250,000 upon 6 month anniversary from closing of the Agreement
  •  Issuance of five million common shares to be paid upon closing of the Agreement

 

 

The property is subject to a 2.0-per-cent net-smelter-return royalty from the original vendors. The Company has the option at any time to purchase 50% per cent of the royalty for payment of $1,000,000.

 

 

“We are pleased to add such a high quality project to our portfolio with such exceptional grades. The exploration potential of this project is extremely exciting and we look forward to potentially proving up a world class resource base.”
