Cruz Cobalt (CSE: CRUZ) announced that it will kick off operations on its five silver-cobalt projects in the historic region of Cobalt, Ontario. 

According to James Nelson, Cruz Cobalt’s president, the company will start by reevaluating its large land package in the area to focus on the silver potential and not just cobalt.

The Cobalt-Gowganda mining area has seen over 600 million troy ounces of silver and 50 million pounds of cobalt produced since 1903

“Cruz has a large land package in one of the most historically prolific silver camps on earth and we plan to reevaluate this land package for silver prospects as well as cobalt,” Nelson said in a media statement. “Our long-term growth objectives lie with the battery metals sector, but it makes perfect sense to investigate our five projects for silver potential at this time as well. We look forward to the resurgence of one of Canada’s most prolific silver districts and establishing Cruz as a premier participant in the silver industry.”

The projects that Cruz Cobalt owns in Ontario are the 1,453-acre Lorraine Prospect, located in the Larder Lake mining division; the 6,145-acre Hector prospect, which covers multiple cobalt occurrences and has returned sample results of over 2% cobalt; the 988-acre Johnson Prospect located in the Kirkland Lake mining district, which has returned historic cobalt, silver, nickel, and copper showings; the 1,525-acre Coleman Prospect and the 1,458-acre Bucke Prospect, which has also returned historic cobalt and silver.

In his statement, Nelson highlighted the fact that the Cobalt-Gowganda mining area has seen over 600 million troy ounces of silver and 50 million pounds of cobalt produced from approximately 104 different mining operations in the area since the first silver vein was discovered in 1903.
