February 01, 2021 – Cruz Battery Metals. (CSE: CRUZ) (OTC Pink: BKTPF) (FSE: A2DMG8) (“Cruz” or the “Company”) wishes to announce that the Company is planning to commence operations on its silver-cobalt projects in one of the most prolific silver camps on earth. Cruz is one of the largest landholders in the historic silver-cobalt producing region of Cobalt, Ontario, with five separate projects is this world-famous silver-cobalt camp. The Cobalt-Gowganda Silver mining area has seen over 600 million troy ounces of silver and 50 million pounds of cobalt produced from approximately 104 different mining operations in the area since the first silver vein was discovered in 1903. Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Cruz may not necessarily be indicative of the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties.

Cruz’s Ontario Silver-Cobalt Properties

James Nelson, President of Cruz states, “We are planning to reevaluate our large land package to focus on the silver potential and not just cobalt.  There has been a significant global focus on silver recently, sending prices to near 5-year highs.  Cruz has a large land package in one of the most historically prolific silver camps on earth and we plan to reevaluate this land package for silver prospects as well as cobalt. To have such a large footprint in one of the highest-grade silver districts on earth while on the cusp of a major bull market in silver is fortuitous at a time when not only is the price of silver seeing an upsurge, but the cobalt and battery metal market is garnering significant attention as well. Our long-term growth objectives lie with the battery metals sector, but it makes perfect sense to investigate our five projects for silver potential at this time as well. We look forward to the resurgence of one of Canada’s most prolific silver districts and establishing Cruz as a premier participant in the silver industry. Cruz is well funded with approximately $1.5 million in the treasury, including flow-through funds, which enables the Company to start operations shortly and look forward to continuing with the momentum 2021 has already seen.”
