NetworkNewsBreaks – First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) Begins Testing Potential Feedstock for Refinery Restart

Vertically integrated North American pure-play cobalt company First Cobalt (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC) this morning announced its commencement of testing of cobalt hydroxide material as feedstock for the company’s refinery. SGS Canada was retained to conduct testing to determine suitability of different cobalt feed material using FTSSF’s current flowsheet. In addition, discussions are underway with cobalt miners and commodity traders to explore ethically-sourced cobalt hydroxide options. As part of the testing, cobalt hydroxide material will be assessed for use as feedstock to produce metallic cobalt or cobalt sulphate products for sale into the North American market, and Cobalt Camp muckpile ore sorting and sampling programs indicate potential for use as incremental feed.

First Cobalt President & CEO Trent Mell stated in the news release, “Our objective is to enter into a long-term agreement for a reliable source of ethically-mined cobalt. The cash flow potential from restarting the refinery in as little as 18 months could allow us to fund a significant amount of work to advance our flagship Iron Creek Cobalt Project in Idaho, USA while also providing a much-needed North American source of cobalt. In parallel with these tests, management has commenced discussions with third party sources of capital that would minimize or eliminate any equity dilution associated with a restart of the First Cobalt Refinery.”

Real Madrid opens Spanish league with 3-1 win over Celta

Aug 18, 2019

MADRID — Karim Benzema scored a goal and set up another as Real Madrid began its Spanish league campaign with a comfortable 3-1 win at Celta Vigo on Saturday. Toni Kroos and Lucas Vázquez also scored, as Madrid played most of the second half with 10 men following a red card to Luka Modric. Madrid was without new signing Eden Hazard because of an injury, and it was Gareth Bale — who many thought would be gone from the squad by now — who helped add the spark Madrid needed in attack. He set up Benzema's opening goal early in...

Without Messi, Barcelona loses 1st league opener in 10 years

Aug 18, 2019

MADRID — Barcelona lost its opening Spanish league match for the first time in a decade on Friday, falling at Athletic Bilbao 1-0 as Antoine Griezmann couldn't make up for Lionel Messi's absence. Veteran striker Aritz Aduriz scored from a spectacular overhead kick a minute after coming off the bench in the 88th minute, handing Barcelona the loss after 10 straight opening league wins. Griezmann, Barcelona's biggest offseason signing, was held scoreless in his competitive debut after joining from rival Atlético Madrid for 120 million euros ($133 million). It was a lackluster performance for the France forward whose only significant...
