The Brabant Graphite Project, located south of Highway 905 near the village of Brabant Lake, Saskatchewan, covers 2 mineral dispositions totaling 798 hectares. The property is crossed by powerlines that provide electricity to other mining operations and communities to the south and north of the project area.
Work to date on the property includes extensive surface sampling and ground magnetometer and VLF-EM geophysical surveys.
The geophysics and prospecting resulted in the discovery of 3 separate zones of mineralization (see news releases dated June 25 and September 10, 2012). The most promising showing, the Ben showing, produced assay results ranging from 6.4% graphitic carbon ("Cgr") to 48.4% Cgr. Assay results and analyses from the three showings showed that 82% to 86% of the graphite reported to the +80 mesh (+0.18mm) size fraction and 70% to 79% reported to the +50 mesh (0.30mm) size fraction.
The Company is in initial discussions with a potential partner to continue exploration on the Brabant Lake Project with the next phase of work including trenching, sampling and assaying as well as preliminary metallurgical work. If the results are positive, a limited drill program would be considered.
