Cobalt Blue Holdings Limited (ASX:COB) is a pure-play, cobalt-explorer/developer, incorporated on the 26th of August 2016 for the express purpose of developing the Thackaringa Cobalt Project in New South Wales, Australia, with the goal of achieving commercial production of cobalt. We interviewed Joe Kaderavek, CEO of Cobalt Blue Holdings, and learned the company has approximately $9.5 million cash in the bank and an accelerated timeframe to deliver a bankable feasibility study by mid-2019. Thackaringa is a rare case of a world class cobalt project located next to a major city, with strong infrastructure that will substantially lower operating costs. Plans for 2017 include upgrading the resource to 100 million tons and delivering a Scoping Study. Strong cobalt demand, driven by lithium ion batteries, coupled with an increasingly fragile supply chain, dependent upon production from the Democratic Republic of Congo, creates a positive future.

This is a large past producer that had produced over two million ounces of gold. We learned from Bob Evans, CFO and Director, and Graeme Evans P.Geo, Consulting Geologist from Ascot Resources, the main features that make their project exciting are the spectacular high grades and the potential size of the resource. Plans for 2017 include a $13million surface resource program with the goal of coming up with the initial high grade resource, and another $7 million underground drilling program. Collectively they're talking 170,000 meters of drilling. According to Bob Evans, if you believe in gold, Ascot is one of your best opportunities around.

Seabridge holds a 100% interest in several North American gold projects. The Company's principal assets are the KSM Project located near Stewart, British Columbia, Canada and the Courageous Lake gold project located in Canada's Northwest Territories. Plans for 2017 include more exploration drilling at the Iron Cap deposit at KSM project.
