VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – February 22, 2016 – Secova Metals Corp. (“Secova” or the “Company“) (TSXV: SEK, Frankfurt: 4NUN, USA: SEKZF) is very pleased to announce that the Company has acquired 1095252 B.C. Ltd., a private B.C. Company which sole asset is the Cobalt Bay Property (“Cobalt Bay”) that consists of 36 claims or approximately 1,996 contiguous hectares in Daine Township, Quebec.
The Cobalt Bay project is located 102 km north of Secova’s Eagle River Project in the Windfall Lake area of Quebec and 209 km north northeast of its Duvay/Chenier project near Amos making this project easily accessible year-round from the Company’s existing projects. Historic work on the property has shown that past results have been very promising, including drilling results from 1957 when the New Jersey Zinc Company returned 0.068% cobalt over 4.5 meters, including 1.5 meters of 0.17% cobalt. Secova will use its expertise in the area to develop a systematic exploration plan to determine the extent of the potential cobalt mineralization.
“The Cobalt Bay property is an opportunistic and strategic investment that is consistent with management’s goals of enhancing the value of the company for our shareholders,” stated Brad Kitchen, C.E.O. and Chairman of Secova Metals Corp. “The Company will use its expertise in assessing historic projects and developing an exploration plan that can effectively and efficiently define a potential resource. There is a huge demand for cobalt and the supply chain dynamics of sourcing non-conflict supply is growing rapidly fuelled by the expected surge in the production of electric vehicles. Value creation for our shareholders is our goal and we will be driving towards potentially discovering an economically minable deposit be it in gold at Duvay/Chenier & Eagle River or cobalt at the Cobalt Bay property.”
The acquisition is an arms-length transaction in which the Company will issue 6.0 million common shares by way of a share exchange agreement. In connection with the transaction, the Company will issue a cash finder’s fee of $52,500 payable to Anglosphere International Enterprises Limited.
Secova announced yesterday the completion of a $2.5 million private placement. A portion of the proceeds raised will be allocated for exploration on the Cobalt Bay Property.
The issuance of the acquisition and the finder’s fee of common shares are subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
