Burlington, Ontario - June 11, 2018 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT) ("CBLT") announces it has closed the sale of two of its non-core Ontario cobalt assets to International Cobalt Resources Limited ("ICR"), an Australian private company. Management of ICR has advised CBLT that it intends to immediately take the necessary steps to list its shares on the Australian Stock Exchange, and that it intends to consider further assets in the battery metals sector.
Total consideration received by CBLT from ICR for the MacTrack and Dickson assets includes:
"The Australian market has recognized the need to source cobalt in reliable mining jurisdictions away from the Congo," said Peter M. Clausi, CEO of CBLT. "CBLT benefits from its early-mover status by sourcing prospective cobalt properties for forward-thinking companies like ICR."
This is the third successful M&A transaction effected by CBLT in 2018 with Australian resource companies. CBLT has previously closed cash-and-equity transactions with each of Winmar Resources Limited (WFE on ASX) and Krakatoa Resources (KTA on ASX) for non-core CBLT cobalt assets. From these transactions, CBLT has received cash of AUD$270,000, and its current Australian equity holdings total roughly AUD$637,000. This does not include the ICR option, which will be valued closer to the time when ICR lists its shares on the ASX. (The Australian and Canadian dollars trade roughly at par.)
These transactions have generated almost one million dollars of value for CBLT from non-core assets in 2018. Further cash will be generated from the 10% management fee to be levied on work carried out in Ontario by Krakatoa, Winmar and ICR. After discussions with management of each of those companies, CBLT estimates the management fees could aggregate roughly CDN$50,000 through the rest of 2018.
CBLT intends to carry out further accretive acquisitions and divestitures as opportunities present themselves.
Further cash will also be generated from the anticipated sale of CBLT's legacy holding in Tempus Capital Inc., which management currently believes to be worth roughly $80,000.
CBLT is a Canadian mineral exploration company with a proven leadership team, targeting cobalt in reliable mining jurisdictions. CBLT continues to be a project generator and an efficient steward of its shareholders' capital.
