MOU to Process Glencore's Feedstock 'Positive Step' for Cobalt Firm's Refinery

Source: Streetwise Reports

 

May 28, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The terms and implications of the arrangement are reviewed in a Canaccord Genuity report.


In a May 21 research note, Canaccord Genuity analyst Eric Zaunscherb reported that First Cobalt Corp. (FCC:TSX.V; FTSSF:OTCQX; FCC:ASX) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Glencore to process, at First Cobalt's refinery in Ontario, feedstock supplied by Glencore. "We see this MOU as a positive step for the company," Zaunscherb added.

The refinery, the only permitted primary cobalt refinery in North America, is not currently operating, and First Cobalt has not made a final decision yet to restart it. However, Glencore, per the MOU, will consider making a loan to fund the capital requirements to recommission the refinery and enter into a tolling agreement with First Cobalt.

The two companies will collaborate on the final flowsheet design, and the refinery could be back in operation in 18–24 months. Glencore's contributed feedstock would generate about 2,000–2,500 tons per annum of cobalt sulfate from the refinery.

First Cobalt is working with the provincial government as well to possibly streamline and accelerate the permit amendment process.

The energy firm views the refinery opportunity as a way to generate cash flow in the near term as it continues advancing its Iron Creek project in Idaho and its project in Cobalt, Ontario.

Potential catalysts for First Cobalt are further clarity around derisking of the refinery and additional exploration results from Iron Creek.

Canaccord Genuity has a Speculative Buy rating and a CA$0.70 per share price target on First Cobalt; the stock is currently trading at around CA$0.16 per share.
