NetworkNewsBreaks – First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) Adds Two Drill Rigs to Iron Creek Cobalt Project

Cobalt exploration and development company First Cobalt (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) this morning announced that it is now drilling from the surface and underground at its Iron Creek Cobalt Project as two additional drill rigs have been mobilized. The addition of two surface rigs will accelerate drilling results and complement ongoing underground drilling at the project. Surface drilling stations were built earlier this year and both rigs have commenced operation. “Our confidence level in the growing footprint of the Iron Creek project warrants an acceleration of drilling activities. A maiden resource estimate is underway and will be available by October. We believe Iron Creek is an important part of the pipeline of cobalt concentrate we intend to feed into the First Cobalt Refinery in Ontario and the addition of two more drill rigs will significantly speed up activities,” First Cobalt president and chief executive officer Trent Mell stated in the news release.

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Kazakhstan's only Olympic swimming champion Dmitriy Balandin is contemplating retiring from the sport, possibly as soon as this week. The 23-year-old has been struggling with injuries and form since his breakthrough win in the 200-meter breaststroke at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and could quit competitive swimming once he finishes racing at the Asian Games, which are taking place in Indonesia. "I don't know what my life is going to be after the Asian Games," he said. "Maybe I finish swimming after Asian Games, but I don't know now. "Really, I am a little bit...

Aug 21, 2018

SINGAPORE — The craze for "Crazy Rich Asians" is hitting Asia, with a premiere in Singapore followed by openings in several neighboring countries later this week.

As the stars streamed past flashing lights down the red carpet Tuesday evening, local fans and tourists swarmed around them taking photos and asking for selfies. The movie is expected to draw enthusiastic crowds across Asia after its box-office bonanza in the U.S. Directed by John M. Chu, the film was adapted from Singaporean author Kevin Kwan's best-selling novel of the same...

Clarkson's Philippines edged by Zhou's China at Asian Games

Aug 21, 2018

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The Philippines was vastly improved with Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson added to the team to face China at the Asian Games. Just one problem. Although the U.S.-born Clarkson led all scorers with 28 points, he had to sit out much of the fourth quarter with a cramp in his right thigh. That was the opening China needed, winning 82-80 in Tuesday's Group D game. Clarkson returned to play the last few minutes of the quarter, and the Philippines Paul Dalistan missed a 3-point shot with about five seconds left, which could have sealed an upset against...

Liu sets world record; Sun and Ikee keep collecting gold

Aug 21, 2018

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Liu Xiang set her first world record in an event she was only doing for a bit of fun. The 21-year-old prefers freestyle sprinting so she was very surprised when she heard the public announcer at the Asian Games yelling out the two sweetest words that every international swimmer understands regardless of their language. And when she turned around to check the electronic scoreboard she saw that it was her who had just broken the world record for the women's 50-meters backstroke. She had powered down the pool in a slick 26.98 seconds to take 0.08 off...

Liu breaks world record; Indian teen wins at Asian Games

Aug 21, 2018

JAKARTA, Indonesia — After sinking a world record set in the so-called buoyancy era, Liu Xiang is ready for her main event. Liu's record in the women's 50-meter backstroke seemed to come out of nowhere at the Asian Games on Tuesday, when the 21-year-old Chinese swimmer won the gold medal in 26.98 seconds. "Because my main focus is on freestyle, I didn't have any pressure," Liu said through a translator. "I could concentrate on my own performance. Liu's time broke the record of 27.06 set by Chinese swimmer Zhao Jing at the 2009 world championships in Rome. That mark was...
