Global Energy Metals Corp (CVE:GEMC) said diamond drilling kicked off at its Werner Lake Cobalt project in Ontario.

Phase 1 of the programme will consist of around 2,000m of diamond drilling, and subject to positive findings, partner Marquee will immediately move to Phase 2, which will encompass 3,500m of  drilling.

"We are thrilled to have drills turning again at the past producing Werner Lake Cobalt project and look forward to a successful work campaign by our partner Marquee Resources," said GEMC president and chief executive Mitchell Smith said.

The Werner campaign has been designed to increase the existing indicated resource of 79,400 tonnes at 0.43% cobalt,  which remains open in all directions.

Initially, drilling will focus on the Werner Lake West area where the bulk of the NI 43-101 resource estimate was delineated.

Planned holes will test depth extension of the mineralised zone(s), confirm historic drill intercepts and will attempt to convert areas of inferred mineralisation to the indicated category.

Phase 2 drilling would continue to test the down dip/down plunge potential of the mineralised zone at both the Werner Lake West and the Old Mine Site areas.

The property is one of the key cobalt resources in Canada and it has seen some history.

Canmine Resources completed several preliminary feasibility studies and economic modelling and was in the process of completing a definitive feasibility study when they filed for bankruptcy.

Additional work was completed in 2009-2010 by Puget Ventures and all this work formed the basis for the NI 43-101 resource report from Global Energy in September last year

That resource relates to the historic underground workings at the old mine site, now referred to as the mine site deposit and the west cobalt deposit.

Highlights included a higher confidence indicated resource of 57,900 tonnes at 0.51% cobalt and an inferred resource of 6,300 tonnes at  0.48% cobalt  at a 0.25% cut-off grade.

The mineralised zones remain open in all directions.
