Canada Silver Cobalt Releases 2022 Future Outlook and 2021 Summary

Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. (TSXV:CCW) (OTC:CCWOF) (Frankfurt:4T9B) (the “Company” or “Canada Silver Cobalt”) is pleased to provide an outlook for 2022 and a comprehensive review of company operations in 2021.

“What an energetic year for Canada Silver Cobalt Works. We are so proud of our team for accomplishing so much this year! Not only have we been opening up new structures and finding high-grade silver in Gowganda, but we’ve also been successful at Graal with multiple massive sulphide intersections. We’ve had quite a year for Re-2Ox and are taking the emerging battery markets very seriously; the ability to produce EV quality materials from the Cobalt camp is the heart of the process. The fact that we can now extract Rubidium for the sodium-ion battery market illustrates how industrious we are and that we are planning for a broad EV future. It was an incredibly ambitious year at Canada Silver Cobalt Works, and we plan to keep the momentum going in 2022. We can’t wait to show you the exciting developments at Castle East, Graal and more.” stated Matthew Halliday, P.Geo., President, COO, and Vice-President Exploration.

Drilling Summary

The goal of the current drill program has been to expand our current resources of 7.56 million ounces of silver inferred (8,582 grams per tonne un-cut in 27,400 tonnes). Since the last Resource update in May 2020 and the beginning of the 60,000m drill program at Castle East, CCW has discovered 7 new mineralized structures. The drill program has been highly successful thus far, with incredible intercepts in late 2020 including silver results of up to 89,853.00 g/t Silver over 0.30m in hole CS-20-39, cobalt results of up to 2.22% Cobalt over 0.42m in hole CS-20-39W4, and impressive gold results of up to 24.95 g/t Gold over 0.30m in hole CS-20-31 with visible gold present at a shallow depth of 49.7m downhole.

In 2021, the Company drilled a combined total of 42,603.4m at its Castle East and Graal Projects. At Castle East, the silver and cobalt grades are equally impressive compared to 2020 and include up to 30,416.91 g/t Silver and 2.24% Cobalt over 0.42m in hole CS-21-61, multiple gold results including 2.35 g/t Gold over 1.30m in hole CS-21-47, and 1.94 g/t Gold over 1.00m in hole CS-21-48. At Graal, CCW is continuing to hit multiple intersections of massive sulphides with promising hand-held XRF results up to 2.79% Ni and 25.68% Cu with assays pending.

About Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc.

Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. recently discovered a major high-grade silver vein system at Castle East located 1.5 km from its 100%-owned, past-producing Castle Mine near Gowganda in the prolific and world-class silver-cobalt mining district of Northern Ontario. This discovery has the highest silver resource grade in the world, with recent drill intercepts of up to 89,853 grams/tonne silver (2,621 oz/ton Ag). A drill program is underway to expand the size of the deposit with an update to the resource estimate scheduled for Q1 2022.

In May 2020, based on a small initial drill program, the Company published the region’s first 43-101 resource estimate that contained a total of 7.56 million ounces of silver in Inferred resources, comprising very high-grade silver (8,582 grams per tonne un-cut or 250.2 oz/ton) in 27,400 tonnes of material from two sections (1A and 1B) of the Castle East Robinson Zone, beginning at a vertical depth of approximately 400 meters. Note that mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Please refer to Canada Silver Cobalt Works Press Release May 28, 2020, for the resource estimate. Report reference: Rachidi, M. 2020, NI 43-101 Technical Report Mineral Resource Estimate for Castle East, Robinson Zone, Ontario, Canada, with an effective date of May 28, 2020, and a signature date of July 13, 2020.

CCW has 39,017.96 hectares of electric vehicle (EV) battery metals exploration properties (containing nickel, copper and cobalt) with 15 properties in Quebec and 1 in Northern Ontario. Exploration is underway at the Graal massive sulphide formation in Northern Quebec. Drill core has been encouraging with initial XRF results up to 2.79% nickel and 25.68% copper in hole NRC 21 03; lab results are still pending.

Canada Silver Cobalt’s flagship silver-cobalt Castle mine and 78 sq. km Castle Property and recently acquired properties in Ontario and Quebec feature strong exploration upside for silver, cobalt, nickel, gold, and copper. With underground access at the fully owned Castle Mine, an exceptional high-grade silver discovery at Castle East, a pilot plant to produce cobalt-rich gravity concentrates on site, a processing facility (TTL Laboratories) in the town of Cobalt, and a proprietary hydrometallurgical process known as Re-2Ox (for the creation of technical-grade cobalt sulphate as well as nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) formulations), Canada Silver Cobalt is strategically positioned to become a Canadian leader in the silver-cobalt space and battery metals.
