On February 15, 2021, CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT) (“CBLT”) announced it had set its exploration goals and budget for the foreseeable future.

There are a lot of different ways for a company to make money in the junior mining space, for Peter Clausi, CEO of CBLT, it all comes down to acquiring prospective assets at good prices. So it was no surprise that CBLT announced February 8, 2021 that it was buying ground at Shatford Lake, located in the Winnipeg River-Cat Lake pegmatite field in eastern Manitoba near the Ontario border.
CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT) (“CBLT”) announces it has closed on its previously announced purchase of the Shatford Lake property from an arm’s length vendor. CBLT is making plans to substantially advance exploration in 2021 at Shatford Lake, which management believes to be highly prospective for lithium.
