Graphite mining company Canada Carbon has discovered new graphite occurrence (VN2), which is 25m from VN1, at its Miller Hydrothermal Lump-Vein Graphite property, located in west of Montreal near Grenville, Quebec.
The company has also identified multiple secondary graphite veins which are associated with a total of six mineralized pods of metric to pluri-metric size visual graphite.
The new VN2 discovery, which is up to 1.5m thick, can be followed for over 3m in length at surface.
Additionally, drilling confirmed a depth of at least 39m beneath the VN2 surface occurrences, of the graphitic vein system.
Canada Carbon CEO and director Bruce Duncan said that the company has started to scratch the surface of the unique hydrothermal lump/vein graphite project and the results have been exceeding expectations to date.
“Trenching of our high purity graphite veins allows us to directly observe geological features that would otherwise be underground or only apparent in drill core material,” Duncan added.
“We can correlate our observations with both the drilling and geophysics, and believe this gives Canada Carbon a significant edge for making additional discoveries along this mineralized corridor,” Duncan continued.
The trench and drill data will be reviewed by the technical team to better assess the graphite mineralization.
