CKR CARBON ANNOUNCES EXTENSION OF EXCLUSIVE PROSPECTING LICENSE TO 2019 REPORTS UP TO 43.01% CARBON AS GRAPHITE FROM SURFACE SAMPLING

Released 2017-09-07

September 7, 2017, TORONTO, ON – CKR Carbon Corporation. (“CKR” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CKR) (CB81–FRANKFURT) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials development company is pleased to announce that the Namibian Minister of Mines and Energy has approved the renewal of Exclusive Prospecting License (EPL) 3895 for a period of two years until April 3, 2019.

The renewed license covers an area of 27,870 hectares (278.7 square kilometres) over the historical Aukam vein graphite mine in southern Namibia. Recent work by the Company over the past two years has led to a better understanding of the quality and distribution of the graphite mineralization at Aukam. In particular exploration has demonstrated significant potential for expansion of the mineralization outside the old workings. 

Recent surface sampling of graphite occurrences has resulted in assays of 1.96% Cg (carbon as graphite) to 43.01% Cg from 22 samples of disseminated graphite, vein graphite and mineralized zone (see Table below). The graphite occurrences were taken from over approximately 200m within a larger east-west zone of 500 metres of disseminated graphite. This zone broadly corresponds to a 700 metre long electromagnetic anomaly delineated earlier this year (see news release dated January 18, 2017). Sampling is ongoing to fully delineate the potential of the graphite mineralization at Aukam.

"We are pleased to receive the approval of the Minister for the renewal of the EPL and thank the Minister and his staff at the Ministry of Mines and Energy for the vote of confidence that the approval represents,” said Roger Moss, Chief Executive Officer of CKR Carbon. “We intend to aggressively move the Aukam project ahead for the benefit of our shareholders, local stakeholders and the people of Namibia.”

Channel lengths do not represent true widths. Composite grab samples are not necessarily representative of

the graphite mineralization on the property.

Samples were placed in a plastic sample bag along with a sample tag. Bags were sealed with a single use tie. All samples were securely stored prior to shipping toTEA-Lab in Swakopmund. Samples were crushed by hammer and jaw crusher to 2mm and split before milling to < 200 microns for thermo-gravimetric analysis. The company routinely submits duplicates and blanks with sample batches to monitor the quality of the assays.
