Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / October 17, 2018 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”) is pleased to announce that following the successful completion of a phase 1 exploration program that partner Marquee Resources Limted (“Marquee”) has signed an agreement with SGS Canada Inc. (“SGS”) to conduct flotation and hydrological test work on the Werner Lake Cobalt project (“Werner Lake” and/or the “Project”) located in Ontario, Canada. The multi-phase Werner Lake exploration program is part of a $2.5 million commitment to advance the project and is being solely funded by Marquee for their earn-in of up to 70% interest in the Project. Global Energy Metals currently owns 100% of the Werner Lake Project.
Marquee has completed 5 HQ diamond drill holes totaling 452 metres, one from the Old Mine Zone and four from the West Cobalt target area in order to collect approximately 150 kg of material for metallurgical testing of the mineralisation at Werner Lake. Drill core has been logged and sampled. Drill core has been logged and sampled. Core samples have been shipped to AGAT Labs for analysis. Once results have been received from AGAT, a composite sample will be created and shipped to the SGS Minerals laboratory in Lakefield, Ontario for study.
The composited sample will be stage-crushed to pass 10 mesh and homogenized. A head sample will be selected and submitted for Co, Cu, Fe and As analysis.
Metallurgical work will include:
- batch floatation testing to identify appropriate conditions for subsequent bulk floatation testing to produce cobalt concentrate,
- batch POX testing to establish conditions for the extraction of cobalt from bulk concentrates,
- bulk batch POX testing to produce cobalt PLS for downstream testing, and
- bench scale solution treatment to evaluate potential cobalt and copper products.
The program is expected to take 3 months to complete once the lab has received the sample and is critical next step when assessing potential off take arrangements with end users of the product.
The phase two drill program is ongoing with Marquee having now completed 15 holes at the Project. The company expects to report the results of the assays from this phase 2 drilling campaign shortly.
