"While First Cobalt Corp. (TSX VENTURE: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF) is primarily focused on its Greater Cobalt Project located near the aptly named Cobalt, Ontario, the company is in the middle of a three-way merger with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc.. Once the merger is finalized, First Cobalt (FTSSF profile) will control over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and more than 50 historic mining operations in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario, Canada, as well as a portfolio of high-quality exploration assets, including a fully permitted refinery and a mill facility.

"The Cobalt Camp is of considerable interest to the company, as an initial mineralogical assessment of sample material taken from various historical mines located throughout the Cobalt Camp show both cobalt-rich and silver-rich mineralization styles. Earlier this week First Cobalt reported high-grade (up to 1.14 percent) cobalt from muckpile sampling at the historic Silver Banner mine at the northern part of the Cobalt Camp. These results confirm the presence of a productive vein system in the area, similar to that seen at the company's Bellellen (located within the Greater Cobalt Project), Keeley and Frontier mines."
