European Cobalt Ltd (ASX:EUC) has confirmed high-grade cobalt-nickel mineralisation from initial grab and rock chip sampling within the Joremeny adit at its Dobsina Project in central Slovakia.

Significant rock chip results include:
• 3.30% cobalt, 4.31% nickel;
• 2.22% cobalt, 2.53% nickel; and
• 1.38% cobalt, 3.16% nickel.

Having implemented this systematic sampling program, a significant milestone has been achieved by European Cobalt in terms of directly verifying the historical channel sampling results.

The company’s shares are trading about 4% higher intra-day, at 4.9 cents.

Through the process of completing surveying of the Joremeny adit, an accurate representation of the location and geometry of the adit has been attained.

High-grade cobalt-nickel and copper-antimony-silver results were also returned outside of historically sampled zones.

Further systematic channel sampling is presently underway with results pending.

Expansion of underground drilling

European Cobalt has purchased a Kempe underground diamond drill rig in order to improve the efficiency and productivity of underground drilling.

It is expected that the drill rig will arrive and be commissioned on site within a month.

In addition, a new local underground diamond drilling contractor has been engaged to operate as a third diamond drill rig on site in order to remedy the relatively slow rate of drilling achieved by the former contractor.
