We learned from Normand Champigny, President and CEO of Sphinx Resources, that they are currently focused on zinc and recently they've done deals with Osisko Metals to advance their Grenville Zinc Project, and also with SOQUEM for the Calumet-Sud zinc project. We learned from Mr. Champigny that zinc is a critical metal for infrastructure, and demand for zinc is rising, largely driven by new infrastructure investment in China, so zinc prices are climbing. We learned from Mr. Champigny that in April they helped create a new company called Quebec Precious Metals Corporation to create a leading gold explorer in the James Bay region of Quebec, and Sphinx will receive shares of the new company as part of the transaction. According to Mr. Champigny, they have an excellent team of actual mine finders. They are working in a very favorable jurisdiction, and the company's plans for 2018 include drilling the two exciting zinc projects.

Interview with Peter Clausi, President, CEO of CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT): A Successful Canadian Cobalt Project Generator
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US


CBLT Inc. (TSXV:CBLT) is a Canadian mineral exploration company and a project generator with a proven leadership team, targeting cobalt in reliable mining jurisdictions. We learned from Peter Clausi, President, CEO of CBLT, that the company was one of the first to move into cobalt space three years ago and were able to acquire cobalt properties fairly cheaply. According to Mr. Clausi, cobalt is an essential ingredient in the electrification of the world; without it, we don't have efficient lithium ion batteries. In 2018 and 2019 the company plans to stick with their business plan to monetize some of the assets turning them into non-dilutive financings. With cobalt prices right now up roughly 400% since February of 2016 and with the supply chain for cobalt from Congo being so unsteady, Mr. Clausi believes that the cobalt market is going to skyrocket.

Corvus Gold Drills 109.7 Metres @ 1.4 g/t Gold (including 54.8m @ 1.86 g/t gold), West Zone Stepout, Mother Lode Project, Nevada
Expands Land Package by 120% North Connecting Mother Lode and North Bullfrog

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corvus Gold Inc. (“Corvus” or the “Company”) - (TSX:KOR) (OTCQX:CORVF) announces it has received additional results from its resource expansion drill program on the western extension of the 100% owned Mother Lode deposit (Figure 1 & 2). The most recent result, hole ML18-068, the western-most hole drilled to date, returned 109.73 metres @ 1.40 g/t gold from the feeder structure for the main Mother Lode deposit (Table 1).  This is the broadest intercept in the West Zone feeder structure returned to date and continues to highlight the importance of this new area which was also intersected in earlier reported holes ML18-067 (NR18-12, June 13, 2018, 18.3m @ 4.02 g/t Au) and ML18-060 (NR18-10, May 24, 2018, 24.4m @ 3.10 g/t Au).  Recently completed holes in the West Zone (ML18-072 to 18-075) are pending assays and will be a priority follow up target area in the Phase III program (Figure 2).

Additionally, Corvus expanded its Mother Lode claim group by 120% covering the southeastern extension of its North Bullfrog project to connect with the Mother Lode and AngloGold Ashanti’s, Silicon project (Figure 3).  The large epithermal systems at North Bullfrog are of similar age and style to the Silicon system to the southwest and Barrick Gold’s historic Bullfrog mine to the south and the Company believes the systems hold potential for additional large epithermal discoveries.   

With the establishment of a mineral resource estimate pending additional positive exploration results, the Company envisions a potential scenario for mineralized material from the Mother Lode property to be trucked to a central processing area that is approximately one kilometre away.  Processing on a nearby claim block is expected to enable development without additional ground being required.  Additionally, higher grade mineralized material from the North Bullfrog property is also envisioned to be trucked to the same area via overland transport.  The surface landowner in this region of Nevada is the US Federal Government, which provides unrestricted access across its land for mineral extraction and processing.

Jeff Pontius, President and CEO of Corvus states “Our new western stepout hole ML18-068 continues to highlight the significance of our new West Zone feeder structure discovery at the Mother Lode deposit (Figure 2). Our new knowledge of the Fluorspar Canyon Fault (FCF) structural bend as it turns to the north and its relation in forming the Mother Lode deposit and feeder structure has given us a good handle on all aspects of the deposit.  It is now determined that this important characteristic is uniquely contained on the core Mother Lode claim block, with only limited and low-grade fringe mineralization trending to the south across the property line.  Corvus Gold’s Mother Lode deposit is evolving into a significant new Nevada gold discovery that continues to expand.”
