June 13, 2022 (Source) — CBLT Inc. (CBLT: TSXV) (“CBLT”) announces that it has entered into an option agreement (the “Option”) with PowerStone Metals Corp. (the “Optionee”), a private British Columbia corporation, with respect to its 100% owned Chilton Cobalt property (“Chilton Cobalt”).
Chilton Cobalt consists of nine claims totaling 497 hectares (almost five square kilometers) in Quebec, Canada, located 40 kilometers east of Saint-Jovite, Quebec, roughly a one hour’s drive north of Montreal. Chilton Cobalt is easily accessible by highway and is close to mining infrastructure.
Work carried out by CBLT and reported September 18, 2017, included the collection of 51 rock grab samples as well as completion of a 649-sample soil geochemistry grid and a 27 line-kilometer VLF-EM survey. The collective data identified two linear Co-Ni-Cu anomalies that are coincident with strong VLF-EM conductors, both of which are centered over the historical showings.
Zone A is outlined by a 1,000 by 250 metre north-trending cobalt-chromium-copper-nickel soil anomaly. Several other conductors worthy of follow-up work are also identified as crossing Zone A. Zone B is outlined by a 750 by 250 metre east-trending cobalt-chromium-copper-nickel soil anomaly, with the historical Lac Sicotte showing at the south end of this zone. A strong VLF-EM conductor passes through this zone.
In addition to Zones A and B, five additional sites at Chilton Cobalt exhibit anomalous cobalt, copper, chromium and nickel in outcrop rock grab samples. Several of these are located on or near VLF-EM conductors and CBLT considers them high-priority targets.
“Chilton Cobalt deserves further exploration,” said Peter M. Clausi, CBLT’s CEO. “The structure of this transaction provides the Optionee a launchpad to commence operations and provide CBLT’s shareholders with significant upside tied to the Optionee’s success.”
The Option provides that the Optionee can earn a 100% interest in Chilton Cobalt by performing all of the following tasks:
- Issue to CBLT one million special warrants from the Optionee’s treasury which shall be convertible into one million common shares for no additional consideration (each, a “Share”);
- Close a financing of at least $250,000 (two hundred and fifty thousand dollars) at a price of $0.10 (ten cents) per Share;
- Carry out work at Chilton of at least $100,000 (one hundred thousand dollars) by September 30, 2023; and
- Carry out a further $150,000 (one hundred fifty thousand dollars) of work at Chilton by December 31, 2024.
The Optionee has expressed its intention to have its Shares listed on a recognized Canadian stock exchange. The Option provides that if the Optionee’s Shares are not listed on such an exchange by September 30, 2023, then the Optionee will issue to CBLT a further 500,000 (five hundred thousand) Shares from the Optionee’s treasury.
Of its one million Shares, CBLT intends to declare a dividend to its shareholders of 750,000 (seven hundred and fifty thousand) Shares on a pro rata basis. The timing of declaring and paying the dividend are subject to discussion between CBLT and the Optionee.
The Option is subject to conditions common to agreements of this kind and may be subject to regulatory approval.

CBLT’s operations could be significantly adversely affected by the effects of a widespread global outbreak of a contagious disease, including the recent outbreak of illness caused by COVID-19. It is not possible to accurately predict the impact COVID-19 will have on operations and the ability of others to meet their obligations, including uncertainties relating to the ultimate geographic spread of the virus, the severity of the disease, the duration of the outbreak, and the length of travel and quarantine restrictions imposed by governments of affected countries. In addition, a significant outbreak of contagious diseases in the human population could result in a widespread health crisis that could adversely affect the economies and financial markets of many countries, resulting in an economic downturn that could further affect operations and the ability to finance its operations.
