MetalsTech Settles Acquisition of Bay Lake High Grade Cobalt Project

Cobalt and lithium developer MetalsTech Limited (ASX:MTC) is pleased to announce it has settled the 100% acquisition of the Bay Lake High Grade Cobalt Project located in Ontario, Canada.

Commenting on completion of the acquisition, Executive Director, Mr Gino D’Anna stated:

“With the acquisition of Bay Lake now settled, we are accelerating Phase I exploration. Cobalt and lithium play a crucial role in the rapidly growing lithium ion battery sector and MetalsTech has secured a strategic portfolio of high grade projects in Canada.

Phase I exploration at Bay Lake will include regional scale mapping and sampling along the highly prospective Nipissing Diabase as well as within the project’s historical mining shafts and adits which have assayed up to 15.36% Co in cobalt-rich veins (refer to ASX announcement dated 16 March 2017 and titled “MetalsTech to Acquire Two High Grade Cobalt Projects”). Phase I will also include an airborne Electromagnetic and Induced Polarisation survey as a precursor to drill target identification and subsequent maiden drilling.

The Company intends to expand its cobalt exposure through the acquisition of additional ground in and around the Town of Cobalt where Bay Lake is located, and expects to update stakeholders in the coming weeks.
