Cruz Capital Corp (CUZ—TSXv, BKTPF —USA, A2AG5M–Germany) has acquired the War Eagle Cobalt Prospect in British Columbia. Management believes that cobalt may face significant shortages in the future as the market for cobalt has been steadily increasing as the supply has not kept pace.
Jim Nelson, President of Cruz Capital states, “We feel that the cobalt demand, primarily for electric vehicle batteries, will continue to increase in the near and distant future. Cruz is very pleased to be acquiring our first prospect within this space. We plan to continue to evaluate and potentially add additional cobalt prospects in secure mining districts globally. We feel cobalt has been under exposed in light of the lithium companies denominating the market place currently and our goal is to make Cruz the next cobalt project generator and producer.”
Nelson comments on the prospect, “There is a minfile number 082GNW076 on the prospect citing a report MC. File 167-N1-2-3 from 1948 showing surface samples of 6.41% cobalt, 3.59% Nickel and 7.25% Copper. The reports “old workings include a tunnel and some test pits’ and the character of the orebody is in a fissure vein which outcrops almost continuously for 3000 ft.” These numbers cannot be verified or relied upon at this time and we plan to dispatch crews to the property shortly to start operations on the prospect.” This property was acquired via staking.
