PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / April 5, 2019 / Uptick Newswire Stock Day Podcast welcomed First Cobalt Corp. (OTCQX:
Jolly began the interview by asking Mell to provide some background information on the Company. Mell explained that the Company focused on becoming a primary miner and refiner of cobalt in North America. One of the Company's assets in Ontario has recently been proven to be able to produce battery-grade cobalt, which represents significant potential value as the only such refinery in North America.
Jolly then asked about the Company's new board members, including retired three-term Idaho Governor Butch Otter. Mell explained that the Company is proud to have Governor Otter on its board, as he is an accomplished businessman and politician. With his connections in Idaho, Governor Otter is certainly an asset for the Company's future expansion in that area.
Mell then explained that the Company is beginning to see the turnaround of the commodities market, but until then they will be focusing on the refinery division of their business. By focusing on this side of the Company, this will allow them to remain cash flow positive during the highs and lows of the commodities market.
Jolly then asked about the future of electric powered vehicles and how the cobalt industry fits into this technology. Mell explained that China represents the largest market for electric powered vehicles, which require batteries with high levels of cobalt. He also shared that the United States is currently in the early growth stages of its use of electric-powered vehicles, representing another market with high potential for the Company.
To close the interview, Mell shared that the Company represents a significant opportunity for shareholders who believe in the future of electric vehicles, which depend on cobalt. While the commodities market can have its highs and lows, it appears as though cobalt is on its way towards making a massive turnaround.

Cautionary Note Regarding Estimates of Resources
Readers are cautioned that mineral resources are not economic mineral reserves and that the economic viability of resources that are not mineral reserves has not been demonstrated. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by geology, environmental, permitting, legal, title, socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues. The mineral resource estimate is classified in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum's "2014 CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves" incorporated by reference into NI 43-101. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies or economic studies except for Preliminary Economic Assessment as defined under NI 43-101. Readers are cautioned not to assume that further work on the stated resources will lead to mineral reserves that can be mined economically. An Inferred Mineral Resource as defined by the CIM Standing Committee is "that part of a Mineral Resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An Inferred Mineral Resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an Indicated Mineral Resource and must not be converted to a Mineral Reserve. It is reasonably expected that the majority of Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration."
