LOS ANGELES, March 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Century Cobalt (OTCQB: CCOB), the cobalt exploration and development company headquartered in Los Angeles, California, announced today that it has been presented with an opportunity to expand its asset base and change its strategic focus.

Accordingly, the Company is pleased to announce that together with Block Commodities Limited, it entered into an option agreement to acquire 70 percent interest (the “Acquisition”) in a Medicinal Cannabis licence granted to Magnus Cannabis Group (Private) Limited (“Magnus”) by the government of Zimbabwe.

  • Payment of an Option fee of £50,000, to be apportioned equally between the Acquiring Parties, and

  • Payment by BLCC of £1.5m through the issue of 2,142,857,142 fully paid ordinary shares in BLCC (calculated at 0.07p per share) upon exercise of the option, and contemporaneously the payment by CCOB of £1.5m of CCOB fully paid ordinary shares, price based on a 30 day VWAP (using the US$/GB£ closing middle market exchange rate published by Bloomberg on the day immediately prior to completion).

The Directors believe that this opportunity will make best use of the Company’s OTC listing to generate shareholder value over the longer term.

About Century Cobalt
Century Cobalt Corp. was created to focus on identifying, assessing and developing high-potential, economic, early-stage cobalt production opportunities in North America to take advantage of growing demand for secure, ethically-sourced conflict-free cobalt supplies. The Company currently holds a 100 percent interest in 695 lode claims in America's largest and most prolific cobalt mineralization trend: the Idaho Cobalt Belt. Cobalt production to date is heavily influenced by very large companies, often focused on other mining sectors due to most of the world's cobalt being mined as a by-product of large-scale copper or nickel operations. Century Cobalt Corp. is solely focused on primary cobalt deposits, where the main metal mined is cobalt. By targeting domestic cobalt sources and utilizing local infrastructure and expertise, the Company has the potential to establish secure cobalt production within a stable political and economic climate.
