Iconic Receives Metallurgical Phase 2 Testing Update from St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. for Bonnie Claire Lithium Project, Nevada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 16, 2019) – Iconic Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: ICM) (OTC Pink: BVTEF) (FSE: YQGB) is pleased to announce that it has received an update from St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (“St-Georges”) regarding Phase 2 metallurgical testing of the lithium-rich sediments (the “Sediments”) from Iconic’s Bonnie Claire lithium deposit in Nevada.

St-Georges’ metallurgists report that they have successfully improved the concentration of lithium in the Sediments, originally reported in December (refer to news release December 20, 2018) using mechanical separation and selective leaching of other elements within the Sediments. The additional tests St-Georges completed in Stage 2, through selective leaching methods, have improved the elimination of barren material from 55% to 85%-88%, while retaining 100% of the lithium. Upon completion approximately 12% to 15% of the original material remains for further processing and purification. This process may significantly reduce the cost of production.

St-Georges is proceeding with the next stage of tests within Phase 2, where it hopes to improve the leaching selectivity. Iconic looks forward to receiving further metallurgical results from St Georges.

The Bonnie Claire Lithium Property Characteristics:

The Property is located within Sarcobatus Valley that is approximately 30 km (19 miles) long and 20 km (12 miles) wide. Quartz-rich volcanic tuffs, that contain anomalous amounts of lithium, occur within and adjacent to the valley. Geochemical analysis of the local salt flats has yielded lithium values up to 340 ppm. The gravity low within the valley is 20 km (12 miles) long, and the current estimates of depth to basement rocks range from 600 to 1,200 meters (2,000 to 4,000 feet). The current claim block covers an area of 35 km2 (13.5 mi2) with potential to be underlain by lithium-rich sediments.

Edison Cobalt Intersects 0.55% Cobalt over 1.02 Meters and 0.46% Cobalt over 2.05 Meters in Diamond Drilling at the Historic Edison Mine on the Kittson-Cobalt Project

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 15, 2019) – Edison Cobalt Corp (TSXV: EDDY) (“Edison Cobalt” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce final results from the summer-fall diamond drilling program targeting the historic Edison Mine area of their Kittson-Cobalt Project, located in the prolific Cobalt Silver Camp in Northeast Ontario, Canada.

A total of 2,620 metres (21 holes) were completed during the summer-fall program, results from the final 8 holes of the program comprise this release. The First 12 holes of the program (see news release October 23, 2018) included intercepts up to 0.27% Co over 2.65 metres including 1.24% Co over 0.35.

Highlights from the final 8 holes include, hole ED-18-013 which returned a wide intercept of 0.07% Co over 9.28 meters Including 0.88% Co over 0.31 meters. And hole ED-18-015 which encountered two zones returning 0.48% Co over 1.85 meters, including 0.55% Co over 1.02 meters and 0.46% Co over 2.05 meters.

The program successfully intersected the fracture zone that hosts the Edison Mine mineralization over a strike length of ~150 metres and to a maximum depth of ~175 meters. The fracture zone ranged from 7 to 30 metres wide (drilled core length) and hosts several 0.1 – 2.0 metre quartz-carbonate veins surrounded by intense carbonate alteration. Fracture and vein controlled cobalt mineralization in the form of smaltite and erythrite (cobalt bloom) occurred throughout this zone with values as high as 1.24% Cobalt over 0.35 meters. A full list of significant intersections from the final 8 holes of the program is provided in Table 1 below. A drill hole location map, an isometric view and cross section are shown here.

About the Kittson-Cobalt Project
The project is located near the town of Cobalt in northeast Ontario, Canada. The Project hosts the historic Edison, Shakt-Davis and Kittson mines, as well as numerous historic workings, the deepest extending down to 628 feet, and over 2,500 feet of lateral workings. Cobalt mineralization occurs in Proterozoic-aged quartz-carbonate veins hosted in brittle shears in Nipissing diabase. This style of mineralization is similar to that of the famous Cobalt Silver Camp located ~15 km east of the Property, which produced 420 million ounces of silver with cobalt as a significant by-product. Veins hosting the mineralization at the Kittson-Cobalt Project differ from the typical Cobalt Silver Camp veins in that they are lower in silver but richer in cobalt and are associated with significant gold. Historic reports from the Shakt-Davis mine indicate values of 1.5% Co over 1.37 metres and select grab samples returning up to 4% Co and 93.3 g/t Au. Locally significant nickel, copper and to a lesser extend lead, zinc and bismuth also occur within the quartz-carbonate veins.

Sample Preparation and Analyses

Core samples were cut and collected in the core shack facility in Smithers, B.C. by an experienced, professional QP geologist. Numbered core sample tags were placed inside each bag, which were then securely closed for transport. The Vancouver laboratory of Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada received the Rice Bag shipments, after secure transport directly from Smithers. All samples have been prepared by crushing, grinding and pulverizing to a pulp with barren material washing between each sample at the crush and pulverizing stages. Then 30 g of pulp was used for the gold assay using Fire Assay code FA430, AAS finish in g/mt and over limit gold using code FA530, with gravimetric finish in g/mt. Tellurite assay using code MA270 (with Te turn on). Other elements assay used code MAQ270 (aqua regia digest with ICP_MS finish).

About the Red Springs Project

Located in North Western B.C., the Red Springs Project contains porphyry-related, sedimentary-hosted gold-cobalt tourmaline breccia mineralization with associated copper, bismuth and antimony (Figure 3). It is in a well-developed infrastructural area and only 10 km away from a major highway and 2 km from a local forest logging road. It is a new discovery for this type of mineralization in B.C.

Tourmaline breccia mineralization in the “Backbone” area of the Red Springs Project is partially controlled by a low angle thrust fault occurring as sill-like tourmaline-sulfide zones within the fault and along bedding planes and as discordant breccia zones in the hanging wall of the fault. Mineralized intervals display multiple phases of hydrothermal activity accompanied by strong silicification and tourmaline-sulfide mineralization.

Tourmaline-sulfide breccia zones and veins have been widely found in the Backbone, North Cirque and North West Cirque prospects. At Backbone, breccia mineralization extends over a strike length of 1000 m and is up to 15 to 50 m wide on surface (Figure 3). Gold grades from surface channel samples range from 1 g/t to 32 g/t Au, with cobalt and copper grades up to 0.36% and 8.33 % respectively.

The 2018 drilling program confirmed the continuity of mineralization over a strike length of 300 m from BB18-01/02 to BB18-03/04/05 and low angle (<30 degree) dip extent of over 100 m from surface channels to the West (Figure 1). Mineralized tourmaline-sulfide breccia zones in drill core extend discontinuously over lengths of more than 26 m at a gold equivalent grade of 1.44 g/t in BB18-03 at the down hole depth from 67 m to 93 m, 20 m at a gold equivalent grade of 0.53 g/t in BB18-04 at the down hole depth from 64 m to 84 m and 21 m at a gold equivalent grade of 0.58 g/t in BB18-05 at the down hole depth from 66 m to 87 m. The assay results also confirm a 2 to 3 m wide high grade band existing under the hanging wall within approximately a 20 m wide mineralization zone with a gold equivalent grade from 2.40 g/t to 15.0 g/t at the Backbone tourmaline breccia zone (Figure 1).

The Backbone tourmaline breccia zone consists of different phases of sedimentary breccia and tourmaline veins or metrics. The sulphide mineralization within the tourmaline breccia zone consists of pyrrhotite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite and pyrite. The most intense mineralization is associated with strong silicification and sulphidation alterations near the hanging wall. A set of late quartz-carbonate veins are concentrated within the tourmaline breccia mineralized zone and contain variable amounts of chalcopyrite and bismuthinite. The cobalt grade can be up to 0.36% on the surface outcrops and 0.10 % in the drill hole cores based on the current exploration data and is closely related to the gold, telluride and bismuth grade within tourmaline breccia mineralization in both surface outcrops samples and drill hole cores.

Based on the 2018 IP survey and drilling program, the Company has identified multiple high priority IP anomalies for sulfide mineralization. High priority IP anomalies extend from the Backbone to North Cirque and North West Cirque areas and cover a 2 km2 area at depths ranging from 350 m to 430 m. The IP survey also indicates the existence of a system of porphyritic anomalies located at the Red Springs Project area. Deeper drilling into these high priority IP anomalies is being planned for spring and summer of 2019.

The objective of the Phase One drilling program was to determine the widths, continuity and grade of gold-cobalt tourmaline breccia mineralization at depth and along the strike. In addition, the results added to the Company’s knowledge of the nature of the tourmaline breccia mineralization and its controls.

NetworkNewsAudio Announces Audio Press Release (APR) on Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. Boding Well for Success Amidst Growing Demand for Battery Metals

New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. – January 11, 2019) – NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled “Global EV Demand Drives Scramble for Fresh Supplies of Vital Metals,” featuring Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (FSE: NXFE).

As an initial step in that direction, Pacific Rim recently signed a preliminary offtake agreement with Beijing Easpring Material Technology, recognized as an industry leader in China, to purchase nickel sulphate and cobalt sulphate from the company’s Cyclops project for an initial term of five years. Indonesia’s record on allowing the development of large-scale mines is strong, and the Cyclops Nickel-Cobalt Project is closer to Asian ports than either Africa or Australia, boding well for the success of this venture.

Pacific Rim Cobalt’s Cyclops Nickel-Cobalt Project has returned positive initial sampling results. Further exploration work may help the company delineate a resource and build its way towards a definitive resource estimate. There appears to be no shortage of demand for battery metals, and the Cyclops Project is well placed to potentially service nearby battery-producing companies.

The company believes cobalt will be the next dominant investment trend related to the critical components of lithium-ion batteries.
