$ Acquisition of Colt Mesa Copper-Cobalt Property, Utah, Surface Grab Samples Return 0.88% Copper and 2.31% Cobalt $

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:31 AM on Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

  • Announced the acquisition of the “Colt Mesa” copper-cobalt property in Garfield County, south central Utah.
  • Colt Mesa mine is associated cobalt, zinc, nickel and molybdenum mineralization
  • Recent sampling (CM-18-01) by Company personnel, on a site visit with the vendor of the property, returned values of 0.88 percent (%) copper (Cu), 2.31% cobalt (Co), 9.31 % zinc (Zn), +1.00 % nickel (Ni), and 0.29 % molybdenum (Mo), over a 0.3 meter chip sample of surface exposure near the adit portal


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSXV:GLI) – (“Glacier” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the “Colt Mesa” copper-cobalt property in Garfield County, southcentral Utah. The property is readily accessible by gravel roads from Boulder, the closest community with services and support. Key takeaways:

  • Property covers the past producing Colt Mesa mine, a copper deposit with associated cobalt, zinc, nickel and molybdenum mineralization.
  • Recent sampling (CM-18-01) by Company personnel, on a site visit with the vendor of the property, returned values of 0.88 percent (%) copper (Cu), 2.31% cobalt (Co), 9.31 % zinc (Zn), +1.00 % nickel (Ni), and 0.29 % molybdenum (Mo), over a 0.3 meter chip sample of surface exposure near the adit portal. Tables below,
  • Area recently became open for staking and exploration after a 21 year period moratorium, due to the reduction of the “Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument” by President Trump in December 2017.
  • 1975 grab sampling reported values from 0.07% to 29.50 % copper (Cu), 0.01% to 0.67 % cobalt (Co), 0.03% to 3.30 % zinc (Zn), 0.02% to 0.27 % nickel (Ni), and trace to 0.17 % molybdenum (Mo). The Company cautions investors grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization on the Colt Mesa property.
  • Sedimentary (sandstone) hosted, tabular strata-bound mineralization.
  • Excellent year-round logistics, road accessible. No reclamation issues from historic mining activity.

“The Colt Mesa acquisition broadens our focus on sedimentary hosted copper deposits, with a significant bonus of cobalt and nickel mineralization indicated. There is strong investor interest in the “Battery Metals” sector, including cobalt, nickel and copper. With this new interest coupled with the growth of the EV sector and strong demand for cobalt, the Colt Mesa project is a welcome addition to the Company’s ever growing portfolio of projects,” says Saf Dhillon, president and chief executive officer. “Surface exploration work will start this summer on the Colt Mesa property and drill permitting will be initiated shortly.”

The Colt Mesa deposit was discovered in 1968 and was mined intermittently from 1971 to 1974. While little data survived from the copper mining activities, a 1975 Master Thesis (G.M. Collings, 1975, Geology and Geochemistry of the Colt Mesa Copper Deposit”) completed at the University of Utah, is an invaluable source of information on the geology and mineralization at the Colt Mesa mine.

Tabular, strata-bound copper mineralization lies within a paleochannel at the contact of two distinct sedimentary (sandstone) units. The trackless, room-and-pillar mining was focused on the copper mineralization meaning the mine and surrounding area were never systematically explored for cobalt mineralization.

All of the above samples were taken at surface, near the adits. The underground working was examined (see website for photos), but not sampled. Samples CM-18-01, 02, and 03, were chip sampled from the same location over a width of 1.35 meters, averaging 0.52 % Cu, 1.51 % Co, 6.52 % Zn, 0.79% Pb, and 0.17 % Mo. Sample CM-18-01 and CM-18-03 had conspicuous “cobalt bloom”, whereas CM-18-02 was barren, unmineralized sandstone. Sample CM-18-04 was a select grab sample of bright, copper oxide float from the dump. The Colt Mesa is renowned for brilliant, multicolored copper oxides, attributed to the association with cobalt and molybdenum.’

The 1975 Master Thesis reports: “The ore body is tabular in form and is composed of chalcopyrite, bornite, digenite, covellite and chalcocite”. Sampling of the underground mineralized zone was completed in 1975 with a total of eight samples from the mineralized zone taken as follows:

Again, the Company cautions investors grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization on the Colt Mesa property.

The Colt Mesa area has seen significant exploration for uranium in the 1950s and 1960s, modest exploration for copper and base metals but minimal exploration was focused on cobalt and nickel. The Colt Mesa mine area was sterilized from exploration and development in 1996, when President Clinton created the “Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument”, however, the size was recently reduced by Presidential proclamation in 2017, placing Colt Mesa outside the new boundaries of the restructured national monument.
