News Releases

Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / January 17, 2018 / Global Energy Metals Corp. TSXV:GEMC | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or "GEMC") is pleased to announce that the first assay results on three reverse circulation (RC) drill holes at the Millennium Cobalt project in Mt. Isa, Australia have intersected very wide and significant cobalt and copper grades potentially expanding the existing JORC resource area.

Significant intercepts from the first stage December 2017 RC drilling program include:

  • 28 metres at 0.20% Co and 0.35% Cu from 104 metres in MIRC026 including 17 metres at 0.26% Co from 115 metres with peak values over a one metre interval of 1.11% Co, 3.8% Cu and 1.42g/t Au.
  • 12 metres at 0.23% Co and 0.27% Cu from 127 metres in MIRC025 with peak values over a one metre interval of 0.67% Co, 0.69% Cu and 0.24g/t Au.
  • 13 metres at 0.10% Co, 0.33% Cu and 0.17g/t Au from 91 metres in MIRC025 with peak values over a one metre interval of 0.48% Co, 1.27% Cu and 0.74g/t Au.

"These first results confirm strong Co-Cu rich mineralisation within the JORC resource area and we are particularly excited with the results from MIRC026 which is an undercut of previous mineralisation and shows an approximate 50 metre depth extension on that section.” commented Paul Sarjeant, VP Projects at Global Energy Metals Corp.  “After a short break over the holiday season we are anxious to restart drilling at Millennium with our plan to further delineate this resource in the weeks ahead.  Hammer has done an excellent job to this point and we are very pleased to continue working with them on this exciting cobalt project.”

Hammer’s CEO Alex Hewlett commented, “The joint venture activity with GEMC is off to a great start with these excellent cobalt results from the first program exceeding our expectations.  We are keen to commence the next phase of drilling at Millennium with GEMC and further advance this project.”

The first phase of the program, completed in December 2017 was designed to test gaps in the existing drilling to confirm grade continuity. The program was a success with several significant intersections returned which met or exceeded expectations.

*CoEq%= Co% +(Cu%*0.095) + (Au ppm*0.054). Price assumptions utilised for drill hole intercepts are (in USD); Co - $75,000/t, Cu - $7,100/t  and Au - $1,250/oz.   Reverse Circulation drill holes have been positioned as close to perpendicular as possible to the mineralised zones.  All intercepts represent core barrel length not true width.   Samples were submitted for 4 acid digest followed by AAS assay for gold and ICP (MS and OES) analysis for a multi-element suite including copper, silver, cobalt and molybdenum.  Industry standard QAQC procedures were in place for the sampling program.

This is part of the first phase of the program completed under the Millennium Joint Venture between ASX listed Hammer Metals.  The joint venture parties will accelerate work with a 10-hole, 1300-metre diamond drilling program designed to infill and extend the current resource.  This next phase of the program is planned to commence as soon as possible.

The Millennium Joint Venture over granted Mining Leases 2512, 2761, 2762, 7506 and 7507 is located 19 kilometres to the west of the Rocklands Cu-Co mine operated by CuDECO Limited and 30 kilometres northwest of Cloncurry.  The Millennium Cobalt project is located adjacent to the Pilgrim Fault zone, which also hosts the Kalman Cu-Au-Mo-Re deposit 50 kilometres to the south. Hammer is managing the exploration activities on behalf of the joint venture.

The Millennium Cobalt Project:
Millennium is an advanced staged cobalt project with a large defined zone of cobalt-copper mineralisation that remains open at depth and along strike.  Cobalt-copper mineralisation is associated with shear zones hosted within a sequence of volcanic and sedimentary units.  The 2016 JORC resource estimate completed by Hammer Metals Ltd. outlined a mineralised zone over a strike length of approximately 1.5 km.  Additional mapping, soil geochemistry and rock sampling has identified an additional 1.5 km of anomalous cobalt-copper mineralisation in geological analogues that occur along a potential strike extension in the northern half of the tenement package.  This area has not been tested with any drilling to date.  This additional strike extent provides excellent opportunity to increase the overall resource potential of the Millennium project.

To date the project area has been tested by only 63 drill holes (percussion, RC and diamond) for a total of 7,891 metres.  Most holes have been drilled within 200 metres of surface, with few holes reaching to depths greater than 250 metres below surface.  At present mineralisation remains open at depth and along the strike extent of the JORC resource area.
