May. 4, 2017 6:00 am

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 04, 2017) - COBALTECH MINING INC. (TSX VENTURE: CSK) (FRANKFURT: 9BN1) (WKN: A2DG59) (OTC PINK: BNCIF) (the "Company" or "CobalTech") announces that it intends to commence legal proceedings seeking damages and a proprietary interest in a refinery located in North Cobalt, Ontario, Canada (the "Property") owned by 36569 Yukon Inc. ("Yukon").

On April 26, 2017, Equator Resources Limited ("Equator") announced that it had entered into an asset purchase agreement with Yukon and its parent company, Yukon Refinery AG (the "Agreement") in respect of the Property. Each of Equator and Yukon are or have been parties to agreements with CobalTech relating to the Property. CobalTech believes that the Agreement announced by Equator on April 26, 2016 was negotiated and entered into in breach of both Equator's and Yukon's obligations to CobalTech.

CobaltTech intends to commence legal proceedings against both Equator and Yukon seeking damages and a declaration that any interest in the property acquired by Equator is held in a constructive trust for the benefit of CobalTech.
