Breaking News: Cameo Cobalt Intersects 117.7 Meter Fully Mineralized Zone Including 1.95% Nickel, 0.14% Cobalt and 0.22% Copper Over 2.70 Meters at The Gochager Lake Project

Cameo Cobalt Corp. (OTC: CRUUF) (TSX-V: CRU) is pleased to announce assays for Drillhole GL18001 has confirmed the presence of massive sulphide mineralization with high-grade Nickel and Cobalt values within a 117.7 meter mineralized interval.    

Cameo recently completed 725.4 meters of drilling in two drillholes, GL18001 and GL18002, at the Gochager Lake project, SK. Both drillholes were designed to test Nickel, Cobalt and Copper mineralization reported in historic drillhole I-12 drilled in 1966. Drillhole I-12 had reported high-grade Nickel and Cobalt intersections occurring within a mineralized zone that assayed 0.57% Nickel, 0.12% Copper over 290.5 meters. Assaying for Cobalt in drillhole I-12 was inconsistent.

  • Drillhole GL18001 was drilled south of and towards vertical drillhole I-12 at an inclination of -70°.
  • 63% of the samples within the 117.7m interval assayed >1000 ppm Nickel.
  • Within the 117.7m interval, disseminated to interstitial pyrrhotite (dominant) / chalcopyrite mineralization is consistent and locally occurs as zones of net-textured to semi-massive to locally massive mineralization.
  • Mineralization is hosted in a Gabbro that locally shows evidence of shearing; notably, sections of intense foliation, along with localized shear zones and numerous quartz veins hosting massive pyrrhotite that typically assayed >10,000 ppm Nickel.
  • The massive sulphide intersection at 126.7-129.4m is evidence that within the broad zone of mineralization, intervals of massive sulphide mineralization, and hence high-grade Nickel-Cobalt do occur.
  • Cameo is awaiting results from drillhole GL18002.

Cameo is very encouraged by these initial results and the presence of massive sulphide mineralization containing high-grade Nickel and Cobalt values within this broad mineralized system. The company has prepared a $2,000,000 Exploration Plan and Budget to be executed over the next 12 months. A major component of the Budget will be to do follow-up Borehole Electromagnetic (BHEM) surveying of drillholes GL18001 and GL18002 to delineate the zones of massive sulphide contained within both drillholes and to identify additional massive sulphide lenses within the mineralized system.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)

Cameo has included a thorough QA/QC control program at the Gochager Lake Project. Drill core logging was performed by a geologist with a P.Geo. designation and the cutting and sampling of the drill core was overseen by the geologist. All the BQTW drill core in GL18001 was sawn in half, one half of the selected sample was placed in a sample bag with a sample tag, the other half remains in the core box. A Canmet certified standard, a blank standard and field duplicates were part of the sampling stream. Typically, every 20th sample in the sample stream was a QA/QC-type sample.

Assaying was performed at TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon, SK; a certified laboratory. A multi-acid, multi element ICP-MS analyses was performed on all samples sent to the lab. All Nickel and Copper over limit results (>10,000 ppm) were subjected to an Ore Grade Nickel and Copper fire assay. Cameo inserted an ore grade Canmet certified standard within the over limit sample stream for QA/QC purposes.
