Cobalt at Castle

In addition to the Castle Silver Mine profitably operated by Agnico Eagle until the late 1980’s, the company also has 100% ownership of the Beaver and Violet cobalt silver properties located near the historic Castle Mine property.  Roughly 300,000 pounds of cobalt was mined from the Castle property over the years, see August 3rd 2015 Technical Report with the Beaver property having historical documented cobalt production of another 140,000 pounds.  Although cobalt has been in the news in recent months, work related to cobalt on the CSR properties dates to 2011 when drill hole CA11-08 from the historic Castle Mine property returned 6,476 grams (188.8 ounces) of silver per tonne over 3.09 metres (10.138 feet) including 0.91% cobalt over 0.45 metres (1.48 feet) plus hole CA11-09 returned 1.44% cobalt over 0.12 metres (0.39 feet.)
