graphite

    According to the Quebec government reports, graphite locally occurs on TAC “as flakes up to 1cm in diameter but typically varying from 0.5mm to 5mm in diameter. Graphite appears to be preferentially developed within the marble units; some crystals can be present locally in any of the metasedimentary lithologies.”

    Graphite was exposed during road repair following logging activity in the area, and includes a massive graphite zone exposed over roughly one square meter at surface. The prospecting team sampled the massive graphite with a portable drill (Shaw Tool, Yamhill, Oregon) recovering 34 centimeters of graphitic schist followed by 30 cm of mostly graphite. Drilling stopped due to mechanical problems, terminating in graphite at 74 cm. The true thickness of the graphite zone is unknown, and efforts are underway to expose more of the graphite along strike. Both core samples, each roughly 25mm in diameter, have been sent for assay with results expected in the coming weeks.

    The massive graphite exposure correlates with a conductor identified from ground geophysical surveys that were recently completed by the Company. The dipole-dipole induced polarization (IP) and magnetic surveys were conducted by Vision Exploration (Timmins, ON) with a total of 4.2 line-km of IP 4.8 km of magnetics completed on the property. Additional graphitic outcrops have been identified elsewhere on the property as follow-up to the surveys and these are also being sampled. Permitting for line cutting and drilling has also been applied for, with further geophysics to define targets for drilling in the coming weeks. Historical drilling on the property in the 1980’s returned a weighted average graphite content of 9.86% Cgf over 46.75 meters (see Reconnaissance géologique et campagne de forage 1989-1990, Propriété TAC, Canton Mousseau by Ressources Graphicor, GM51068).

    Lac Vert

    The Lac Vert property, located 3 km from the TAC property, is underlain by the Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville Geologic Province. This package of marble, impure quartzite, quartzofeldspathic gneiss, biotite gneiss, biotite schist and associated pyroxenite and/or amphibolite stocks generally dips gently to the south-southwest (8 to 20°). Graphite occurs in crystalline marble. Twelve selected grab samples taken by Ressources Graphicor returned concentrations ranging from 1.69% Cgf to 23.00% Cgf averaging 15.66% Cgf. Historic exploration consisted of limited prospecting and geological mapping followed by line-cutting, and a geophysical survey which identified a cluster of numerous east-west conductors interpreted at the time to represent a hinge or warp zone. An 11 hole, 584 meter program of diamond drilling produced results from 2.64% Cgf over 1 meter in hole V90-04 to 3.20% Cgf over 6.1 meters in hole V90-10. Best results came from hole V90-06 which intersected a calcareous unit with 5.79% Cgf over 12.25 meters, including a 3.35 m interval with 9.25% Cgf.
