January 11, 2021: Vancouver, British Columbia – Fuse Cobalt Inc. (“the Company“ or “Fuse”) (TSXV: FUSE, OTC: FUSEF FRA:43W3) would like to provide its shareholders with additional information regarding the history and current status of the Company, as well as, its proposed operating plan for 2021.
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
TO OUR SHAREHOLDERS AND PARTNERS:
Since February 2020, the Company has accomplished quite a bit during a time of global uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic, including a company rebranding and financing. Now that a vaccine is on the horizon, there has been a renewed interest on clean tech solutions, including purchasing of electric vehicles. Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) continues to be one of the most valuable car companies by a long-shot and is on the list of some of the most valuable public companies worldwide.
We are now planning our 2021 Canadian exploration programs in Cobalt Ontario, and plan to further enhance and move our mineral exploration properties forward. The Company’s exploration team is in the process of reviewing our past exploration work, to provide a realistic exploration plan for 2021.
Mr. Setter further comments “Recall that not that long ago, our past drilling results on our Ontario cobalt properties revealed Intersections of 21.9% Cobalt Over 0.36 M and 18.7% Cobalt Over 0.15 M at Teledyne Cobalt Property (News Release Jan 18, 2018), and Intersections of 8.42% Cobalt Over 0.30 Metres on the Glencore Bucke Property (News Release Jan 17, 2018). These are spectacular results. These results along with other high-grade cobalt drill results found during past exploration programs, are the reason why we are excited to continue to work on our properties.”
In addition to adding working capital and re-claiming 100% of our Canadian cobalt assets over the past year, Fuse has added several experienced people to our team which will allow the Company to drive results on these two properties. “We look to add to both our management team and board over the remainder of calendar 2021, and stay tuned for these announcements” comments Mr. Setter.
Furthermore Mr. Setter states “Long-term, the Company believes in the market for cobalt and we will continue to explore and develop our mineral exploration properties in Ontario. They are great and important Company assets largely because of the emergence of the overall Electric Vehicle market and the need for new global sources of cobalt. For example, a Tesla Model S needs 51 lbs of cobalt for its battery and cobalt is an essential component in a lithium ion rechargeable battery. Electric Vehicles are expected to drive a large part of this increased future metal demand and are projected to grow from a small number today to 140 million vehicles by the year 2035. Because of this demand, our neighbour in Ontario is restarting North America’s only licensed cobalt refinery, alongside an investment by mining and commodities trader giant Glencore (LON:GLEN) of $45 million(Glencore Investment News). We are excited that this refinery, once operational, will provide a nearby facility to refine any and all cobalt from the region, especially since we have an existing offtake agreement in place with Glencore on these properties. As you can see, the future for cobalt is certainly bright and Fuse management is extremely positive on the future demand for this metal.”
These changes have positioned the Company for a bright future for our shareholders.
“We are very happy that our shareholders continue to support our company and our exploration programs in Canada” comments Mr. Robert Setter, President & CEO of Fuse. “The funds that we have received recently are earmarked for our various exploration programs in order to improve the value of what we have underground and ultimately work towards getting these properties closer to becoming producing cobalt properties. This will take a lot of hard work, but our team is up for the challenge.”
Thank you for joining us on this journey, and we look forward to a great 2021.
