VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 1, 2017) - Cobalt Power Group Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CPO) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first non-brokered private placement announced on February 16, 2017 for gross proceeds of CDN$1,040,000.
The non-brokered private placement closed on February 28, 2017 and consisted of the placement of 13,000,000 units at a price of $0.08 per unit. Each unit consisted of one common share of the Company and one-half transferable share purchase warrant with one full warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.16 for a period of eighteen (18) months following the date of closing.
As compensation for the placement of the units, Cobalt Power paid cash finder's fees of $29,496 calculated at 6% of the amount placed by four (4) finders. In addition, the Company issued to eligible finders 399,000 Broker Warrants also calculated at 6% of the units placed by the eligible finders. Each Broker's Warrant is exercisable at price of $0.16 to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
All securities issued by Cobalt Power pursuant to the offering have been issued subject to a four month hold period expiring June 29, 2017.
The non-brokered private placement received substantial interest within a very short period of time forcing the Company into the situation whereby some of the subscriptions were not filled.
The proceeds will be used to commence an extensive exploration program on the Company's Smith Cobalt project consisting of drill target identification and drilling, as well as for administrative expenses.

About the Smith Cobalt Project
The Smith Cobalt project is underlain by a sequence of Archaean volcanics which are uncomformably overlain by Huronian sediments. These formations have been intruded by the Proterozoic-age Nipissing diabase sill. Faulting, on both a regional and local scale, has been found by surface mapping and in drill cores. Polymetallic veining, and especially pinkish-white carbonate veins, has also been reported. Thus, all the necessary geological components of accepted mineralization models for cobalt-silver have been identified on the properties.
