@Raccoon, ik zie nu pas de reactie maar zijn er in deze sector van kobalt ook bedrijven met een grotere beurswaarde dan bijvoorbeeld 200 miljoen dollar? Over het algemeen zijn de bedrijven niet zo groot gemeten naar beurswaarde.

Farquharson on closing a C$17.25 million financing as a rising star in the cobalt market space :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgHPpBgLdYE

de BFS zou dus bekend worden gemaakt voor aanstaande maandag/dinsdag.

Het voelt een beetje aan als erop of eronder, want bij een gunstig onderzoeksresultaat zal er een flinke stijging komen, maar als het voor de zoveelste keer wordt uitgesteld, dan is er echt wat aan de hand en dan voorzie ik heel snel een daling naar de 0,50-0,60 range.

goed opletten de komende dagen dus!

May 31, 2017, Vancouver, B.C., - eCobalt Solutions Inc. is providing its shareholders with an update on the Company’s Feasibility Study (“FS”) for the 100% owned Idaho Cobalt Project (“ICP”). The ICP is the only near term, environmentally permitted, primary cobalt project located in the United States.
Significant progress on all fronts has been made on the FS over the course of the past couple of months. The project continues to advance with milestones achieved in several disciplines, notwithstanding that some engineering tasks have taken significantly longer than was originally anticipated. In 2016 eCobalt commissioned the Feasibility Study with Micon International Limited (“Micon”) and SNC-Lavalin (“SNC”) with initial results expected in late calendar Q2 / early Q3, with the NI 43-101 compliant Technical Report for SEDAR filing to follow within 45 days. Feasibility Study engineers have reported that there are no further foreseeable challenges for the engineering efforts at this time.
Micon reported key milestones achieved for the project since our last update in March, 2017 consisted of:
o Mineral Resources: Resource model, mine design and schedule are complete;
o Mining: Mine design and production schedule information is being provided to an independent mining contractor to prepare a contract mining cost estimate for the pre-production period (Year -1), and operating Years 1 and 2;
o FS Metallurgical:The metallurgical testing required for the Feasibility Study is now complete with successful confirmatory recovery results from all circuits;
o Cobalt Sulphate Heptahydrate Crystal Production: Mineralized material from previous and recently completed FS confirmatory metallurgical testwork is being used as the basis for the production of cobalt sulphate crystals intended for due diligence purposes by potential offtake clients. Recently received assay results of this material indicate eCobalt’s ability to produce high purity cobalt sulphate crystals suitable for the rechargeable battery sector. The production of additional kilograms of this material for potential end users is underway and we have recently shipped a sample to a potential offtaker interested in our product.
o Cobalt Production Facility (“CPF”) Site Location: An option to purchase land for the Cobalt Production Facility has been secured within an industrial park in Blackfoot, Idaho. Excellent infrastructure has been evaluated at the site that includes low cost electrical grid power, paved road, adjacent rail, potable water with CPF discharge suitable for the local municipal water treatment plant;
o Geotechnical Studies: Flotation tailings from the SGS testwork, is currently being used in Paste Backfill tests and Tailings Waste Storage Facility tests.
In addition to the completion of the Resource Model and Mine Schedule noted above, SNC-Lavalin has completed its review and revision of the basic process engineering for the mill/concentrator and the CPF.
As at May 1, 2017, Micon reported progress on the major engineering disciplines are as follows:
Discipline / Area % Complete
Geology & Mineral Resources 100
Mine Engineering & Design 90
Mill/Concentrator Engineering 100
CPF Engineering 100
Capital cost estimate 75
Operating cost estimate 25
Economic Results 25
Preparation of Technical Report 30
The proposed underground mine development layout has been optimized to minimize the scheduled lead time while providing access to stopes of above average grade early in the mine life to assist in minimizing mine payback schedule. Equipment requirements and layouts for both plants have been finalized and material take-offs (determining all materials required to accomplish the design and costing) have been quantified.
The outlook for the demand for cobalt, driven primarily from the rapidly growing rechargeable battery sector and electric vehicles remains bullish. This demand has been reflected in the commodities rapid price growth, where it appears to have stabilized over the past several weeks at around US$25.00 per pound. This is the reported price on the LME for 99.3% cobalt metal. Cobalt contained in cobalt sulphate heptahydrate currently carries an additional premium of approximately 20%, as it does currently in China.
The Company’s balance sheet remains in a strong position with cash and cash equivalents of $19.22 million as at February 28, 2017.
“This strong balance sheet allows the Company to expand its technical team on the mining and process sides in anticipation of moving the project through the Feasibility Study into detailed engineering. It is also allowing us to actively pursue project financing options and undertake other opportunities to increase value for all our shareholders”, commented Paul Farquharson, President & CEO of eCobalt.

eCobalt Provides Feasibility Study Update
on the Idaho Cobalt Project

June 23, 2017, Vancouver, B.C., eCobalt Solutions Inc. (TSX: ECS; OTCQB: ECSIF) (the "Company" or "eCobalt") is providing its shareholders with an update on the Company’s Feasibility Study for the 100% owned Idaho Cobalt Project (“ICP”). The ICP is the only near term, environmentally permitted, primary cobalt project located in the United States. In 2016 eCobalt commissioned the Feasibility Study with Micon International Limited (“Micon”) and SNC-Lavalin (“SNC”). Since the Company’s May 31, 2017 update, engineering efforts have focused on mine schedule optimisation and third-party review of the mine planning parameters. A preliminary mine schedule has been provided to Small Mine Development (“SMD”) for costing. The Company anticipates the project’s capital cost estimate to be completed near the end of June. SMD, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, has a solid reputation for providing safe, productive and innovative underground, hardrock mining solutions.

Micon has reported advancements in the following areas:

• Geology and Resources: Preparation of the relevant sections of the National Instrument 43-101 compliant technical report is in progress with a draft of the relevant sections of the report currently under review.
• Geotechnical Studies: Flotation tailings obtained from the SGS Lakefield test-work is currently being utilized in paste backfill tests conducted by Patterson & Cooke. Paterson & Cooke has provided consulting services to the mining and resource industries for over 25 years. Their expertise includes tailings processing and transport systems, mine backfill systems and mine water management systems.
• Mining and Reserves: A preliminary mine production schedule has been provided to SMD. SMD will prepare a contract mining cost estimate for the preproduction period Year -1, and operating Years +1 and +2. These estimates will include the initial mine development costs for the first two years, surface and underground mining equipment, electrical and communication design, backfill and dewatering system design, compressed air supply and ventilation.
• Cobalt Production Facility (the “CPF”): An option to purchase land for the CPF has been secured within an industrial park in Blackfoot, Idaho. A geotechnical drilling program has been completed and material testing is underway. Preliminary reviews of the borehole logs show little variation in the underlying geology and are consistent with the geotechnical report from the adjacent land with an established industrial operation. The highway accessible site has excellent infrastructure including low cost electrical grid power, adjacent rail, potable water and access to local municipal sewer systems. Discharge from the CPF will meet the standards of the local municipal water treatment plant without further processing.
• Engineering Design: All material take-off’s (determining all materials required to accomplish the design and costing) and equipment lists have been provided to the estimating team and are being incorporated into the project costs.
Micon reported progress on the major engineering disciplines as follows:

Discipline / Area % Complete
Geology & Mineral Resources 100
Mine Engineering & Design 95
Mill/Concentrator Engineering 100
CPF Engineering 100
Capital cost estimate 80
Operating cost estimate 40
Economic Results 25
Preparation of Technical Report 50








Development of operating expenditures are ongoing together with mining capital estimation and optimisation of the mining schedule. A metallurgical simulation model is being finalized and will feed into the project cost development.

Outlook for cobalt is bullish with increasing demand driven primarily by the electric and hybrid electric vehicle markets that utilize rechargeable batteries that require cobalt. LME Cobalt prices recently broke through US$26.50/lb for 99.3% metal as end-consumers looked to secure long-term contract material requirements ahead of tightening concentrate and refined metal and chemical supply.

eCobalt’s Annual General and Special Meeting
The Company’s Annual General and Special Meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at the Terminal City Club located at 837 W Hastings St, Vancouver, BC at 10:00 am. The Company is pleased to announce that David Christie, Gregory Hahn, Scott Hean, Paul Farquharson, and Rob Metka are nominated for re-election as Director’s at this year’s Annual General and Special Meeting. The Company is also pleased to announce that David Smith, CFO at Angico Eagle, is nominated as a new Director to join the Board.

“eCobalt is well positioned to capitalize from the bullish cobalt market”, commented Paul Farquharson, President & CEO of eCobalt. He continued, “As expected, many new players have recently entered the cobalt sector, however, the ICP remains the sole near term, permitted cobalt mine in the US. Our comprehensive and detailed Feasibility Study, which will be available soon, will assist us in securing financing to get this project into production. In the meantime, the Company is focused on adding strength to our Board of Directors and our senior management team.”

E.R. (Rick) Honsinger, P.Geo., Senior Vice President of the Company, is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 who has supervised the preparation of this news release and has approved its contents.
