About Cobalt Properties

Cobalt Paragon consists of two historic mines, the Cobalt-Frontenac and Paragon-Hitchcock, hosting two distinct target types: (1) at Cobalt-Frontenac, Archean volcanics are cut by NE-oriented shears with multiple east-west pinch and swell veins containing historic gold values on surface and (2) at Paragon-Hitchcock, Proterozoic Nipissing diabase sills host quartz–calcite veining with silver and cobalt mineralization.  Historic exploration dates largely to the period from 1900 to 1920 and was focused on the delineation of high-grade mineralized structures followed by underground development.  Neither of these mines has ever been investigated by modern exploration methods guided by current ore deposit modelling criteria nor has any drilling been completed.  The project is located close to Elk Lake, Ontario, less than 45 minutes along provincial highways from both Kirkland Lake and Temiskaming Shores.

Stripping and trenching at Cobalt-Frontenac by the vendor in 2012 in the vicinity of the shaft exposed a 30-metre-wide outcrop hosting a NE-trending, sheared quartz vein that returned grab values ranging from nil to 11.2 g/t Au and channel samples including 3.0 g/t Au over 0.50 metres.  Selected grab sampling at Paragon-Hitchcock, conducted by the vendor from a muck pile, representing material from the shaft and underground level, returned values ranging from 8.79 to 414 (g/t) silver, 0.06 to 9.86 g/t gold, and 0.08 to 9.25% cobalt.

Chrysler Lake is underlain by favourable geology that is on strike from nearby known mineral occurrences. The property is considered to be highly prospective for cobalt and silver occurrences as the geological setting is similar to that of the Cobalt mining district which is known for its past producing high grade mines, where the mineralization is strongly associated with Nipissing Diabase sills and dykes.  The Chrysler Lake area has been overlooked historically due to the lack of outcrop, however geophysical interpretations and work done by the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) has highlighted the areas previously unrecognized potential.

Further details of cobalt projects are contained in news releases June 14 and Nov 1, 2017 and on the Company’s website at www.explorex.ca.

Gary Schellenberg, CEO of Explorex commented, “The work in Ontario is focused on advancing the two projects in preparation of a more extensive winter programme and setting the stage for more detailed work early next year.  These projects will be the focus of much additional work and the basis from which we expect to expand our portfolio of cobalt enriched projects”
