Dundee Sustainable Technologies Initiates Metallurgical Testing with First Cobalt


MONTREAL, March 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. ("DST or the Corporation") (CSE:DST) is pleased to announce a metallurgical test program with First Cobalt Corp. ("First Cobalt") (TSX-V:FCC) on high grade samples from the Canadian Cobalt Camp ("Project Material").  This test work is intended to develop an optimal process flowsheet for the recovery of silver and cobalt incorporating DST's arsenic removal and stabilization technologies. 

The Project Material has been sent by First Cobalt and received at DST technical and industrial complex located in Thetford Mines, Quebec. The 30 kg sample is composed of high grade refinery residue and crushed waste rock material sourced near the First Cobalt mill facility in the Canadian Cobalt Camp. The mineralised material contains grades ranging from 0.65% to 1.55% cobalt. DST's work will be to determine the analytical characterization of the Project Material, its amenability to concentration by gravity, the applicability of DST's arsenic removal and stabilization process and the recovery of metallic values.

Mr. Brian Howlett, the President and CEO of the Corporation stated, "DST is very pleased with the interest and collaboration with First Cobalt. This project is a good opportunity for DST to further demonstrate its ability to work and process high arsenic bearing cobalt material in a safe and environmentally friendly manner and to position DST as a key player in the processing of North American sourced primary cobalt through the Corporation's arsenic technology in addition to the gold projects that we are pursuing."

The work study is expected to commence shortly and to be completed by the end of the second quarter and aims to develop a process flowsheet.

Mr. Jean-Philippe Mai, P. Geo., is the Qualified Person who has reviewed, prepared and approved the content if this news release.
