Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 3, 2018) - M2 Cobalt Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV: MC) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized trenching crews and has commenced trenching its Waragi and Bombo Targets at the Bujagali Property. Both targets comprise large-scale cobalt ("Co"), copper ("Cu") and nickel ("Ni") anomalies recently discovered by M2 Cobalt through the Company's ongoing exploration programs. Anomalous soil and rock samples at the Waragi target contain 1.24% Co and 0.4% Cu and anomalous soil and rock samples at Bombo contain 0.65% Co, 0.4% Cu and 0.15% Ni.
Trenches are designed from 30 to 90 meters in length cross cutting stratigraphy to: test mineralization at depth; better understand local stratigraphy; and sample buried bedrock in preparation for drilling. Maps showing the areas of trenching can be viewed on our website at www.m2cobalt.com/index.php/projects/bujagali.
At M2 Cobalt's Kilembe Area Properties, Geotech Ltd. has now completed the helicopter-borne VTEM™ B-Field and horizontal magnetic gradiometer geophysical survey over the Company's northernmost exploration license in Bunyangabu District (Kilembe Area Property). The survey was flown at 100-metre spaced lines and was designed to identify priority geophysical anomalies analogous to that of volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits ("VMS") for follow-up exploration. The past producing Kilembe copper — cobalt deposit is considered a VMS deposit. Once final data is received M2 will provide further target information.
A number of priority anomalies have been identified from the initial data interpretation which will be utilized to focus ground crews who will undertake: mapping and prospecting; detailed ground geophysical surveying; and, soil and rock sampling to further define key target areas within the Exploration License.
The helicopter survey will now be focused on the Company's License in Kasese District, south of the former Kilembe Mine and thereafter will be utilized, as required, on a focused basis to support the ground program currently underway at the Bujagali Property.
Simon Clarke, CEO stated, "Our detailed trenching programs will provide increased definition and delineation across our recently announced discoveries at Bujagali with the additional goal of locating mineralized host rocks. This phase of our program is focused on enabling us to identify key drill ready targets and line of sight to initial resource numbers at Bujagali."
Dean Besserer, P.Geol., the Company's Technical Advisor and exploration program manager stated, "Our crews continue to make extremely good progress in the field and our program is generating numerous targets and discoveries.
The airborne survey results from our Kilembe area properties will enable the most efficient approach to exploring these Licenses. Not only does the airborne data provide detailed geological information within our Licenses, but, by identifying a number of high priority targets, it will enable our ground crews to focus their efforts on specific targets early on."
