CRUZ COBALT RETAINS USA TEAM FOR ITS “IDAHO STAR” COBALT PROSPECT IN IDAHO
Cruz Cobalt Corp. has retained Aaron Powell PLLC (AP) to oversee the work program on Cruz’s 100-per-cent-owned Idaho Star cobalt prospect.
Cruz president James Nelson stated: “We are very pleased to have Aaron and his crew overseeing our Idaho cobalt project. Aaron has a strong background, where he worked for Sentient Group, a multibillion-dollar private company where he analyzed mining projects across the globe and with Baird Hansen LLP where he assisted clients with acquiring and evaluating mining projects, obtaining and managing permits, reclamation and evaluating mineral potential, and environmental risks. Their team has extensive knowledge and experience in Idaho, the main address for cobalt in the U.S. We are excited about getting started on this project, thus giving Cruz multiple work programs under way in both the U.S. and Canada at a time when cobalt prices have broken out to new eight-year highs.”
Cruz currently has nine cobalt projects located throughout North America, comprising four in Ontario, three in British Columbia, one in Idaho and one in Montana. Cruz’s four separate Ontario cobalt prospects are all located in the vicinity of the city of Cobalt making Cruz one of the largest landholders in this emerging cobalt district. Cruz’s Ontario projects include the 900-acre Coleman cobalt prospect, the 900-acre Johnson cobalt prospect, the 5,500-acre Hector cobalt prospect and the 1,480-acre Bucke cobalt prospect. The company’s 4,935-acre War Eagle cobalt prospect in British Columbia covers a past-producing mine.
