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.”

Long-awaited video service expected from Apple on Monday

Mar 25, 2019

Apple is expected to announce Monday that it's launching a video service that could compete with Netflix, Amazon and cable TV itself. It's a long-awaited attempt from the iPhone maker, several years after Netflix turned "binge watching" into a worldwide phenomenon. The new video service is expected to have original TV shows and movies that reportedly cost Apple more than $1 billion — far less than Netflix and HBO spend every year. Also expected is a subscription service consisting of news, entertainment and sports bundled from newspapers and magazines. Apple is making the announcements at its Cupertino, California, headquarters during...

Lamb hits winning 3, Hornets down Raptors 115-114

Mar 25, 2019

TORONTO — Jeremy Lamb added a dose of March Madness to Sunday's NBA action. Lamb banked home a half-court shot at the buzzer and the Hornets beat the Toronto Raptors 115-114, Charlotte's third straight win. "It feels great," Lamb said. "We fought so hard the whole game. Everybody who came in contributed and played well. They made a big run late. It just feels good to get that win and cap it off like that." Toronto looked to have won the game after Kawhi Leonard hit the go-ahead basket with 44 seconds left, then blocked Kemba Walker at the other...

Media quick to declare Trump as Mueller's winner

Mar 25, 2019

NEW YORK — A media narrative declaring President Donald Trump the clear victor of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian electoral tampering investigation settled in Sunday before more than a handful of Mueller's actual words has become public. Poised for news on the investigation for months, news organizations jumped on Attorney General William Barr's summary of Mueller's report. Barr said that Mueller had determined there was no evidence connecting Trump and his campaign staff to Russia's effort to influence the 2016 election. While Mueller made no conclusion about whether Trump had obstructed justice, Barr and his team decided there wasn't enough...

Get Out! Jordan Peele's 'Us' shatters records with $70.3M

Mar 25, 2019

NEW YORK — Jordan Peele has done it again. Two years after the filmmaker's "Get Out" became a box-office sensation, his frightening follow-up, "Us," debuted with $70.3 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. The opening, well above forecasts, had few parallels. It was the largest debut for an original horror film (only the "It" remake and last year's "Halloween" have surpassed it in the genre) and one of the highest openings for a live-action original film since "Avatar" was released 10 years ago. In today's franchise-driven movie world, seldom has a young director been such a draw....
