VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / APRIL 24th, 2014 / GLOBAL COBALT CORP. (TSXV:GCO, OTCBB:GLBCF) ("Global Cobalt" and/or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Wardell Armstrong International ("WAI") has been commissioned to complete a National Instrument 43-101 resource report on the Karakul Cobalt Project.
The Company completed a 45-hole 7,398 metre drill campaign on the flagship Karakul Cobalt Project, located in the Altai Republic, Russia in late December, 2013. The program was designed primarily to increase the level of confidence in the historical data through infill and confirmation drilling with the final assay results released earlier this month. Results from this program along with historical non NI 43-101 compliant Russian data will be used to support the preparation of an independent NI 43-101 initial resource estimate for the Karakul Cobalt Project. The highly regarded international engineering, environmental and mining consultancy firm Wardell Armstrong International has been engaged to generate this report and results will be published upon its completion, expected in Q2, 2014.

"The completion of a resource report is the next important milestone in the development of the Karakul Cobalt project bringing together a large amount of new technical data with significant historical work." Dr. Hitch continues, "We have been highly impressed by Wardell Armstrong's technical and geological capabilities and believe their credentials should prove instrumental in assisting the Company taking the project to this next stage."
