(TSX: ECS; OTCQB: ECSIF) (the "Company" or "eCobalt") announces that it has filed and obtained a receipt for a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the Securities Commissions in each of the provinces of Canada except Quebec.
Upon a final short form base shelf prospectus (the "Shelf Prospectus") becoming effective, these filings will, subject to securities regulatory requirements, allow the Company to make offerings of up to $100,000,000 of common shares, preference shares, debt securities, warrants, subscription receipts, units, or any combination of such securities (all of the foregoing, collectively, the "Securities") during the 25-month period that the Shelf Prospectus is effective.

Each Prospectus Supplement will contain specific information, if any, concerning the use of proceeds from that sale of Securities.
