La Loutre Project

The La Loutre Property consists of 1 large contiguous block of 42 mineral claims totaling 2,508.97 hectares (25.09 km2) located approximately 53 km east of Timcal's Lac des Iles graphite mine, 117 km northwest of Montréal in southern Québec.

The La Loutre Property was originally explored for base and precious metals by Soquem in 1989. Based on the results of a helicopter-borne electromagnetic (EM) survey, prospecting and reconnaissance geological mapping, their work identified several zones of parallel conductors each measuring as much as 2 kilometers long. Ground exploration followed in 1990, and according to historical reports by Levesque and Marchand, graphite is present in different lithologies on the property. The geology is consistent with the Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville Province and includes quartzofeldspathic rocks, quartzite, biotite gneiss, marble and locally pegmatitic quartzofeldspathic rocks. Graphite is locally present in quartzite and biotite gneiss and in shear zones where the graphite content usually ranges from 1-10% graphite on surface, including visible flakes, with the showings indicating an apparent strike length of approximately 5 kilometers, giving a large prospective area to explore for a graphite resource.

Graphite grab sample assay results derived from the Company's recent sampling and mapping program on the La Loutre property. The sampling program has confirmed a graphite bearing structure covering an area approximately 7 kilometers by 1 kilometer with results of up to 22.04% graphite in multiple parallel zones of 30-50 meters wide. Another area has also been identified covering approximately 2 kilometers by 1 kilometer in multiple parallel zones of 20-50 meters wide which includes results up to 18% graphite.
