MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Canada Carbon Inc. (the “Company“) (TSXV:CCB), (FF:U7N1) is pleased to announce it has received all the assay results from the December 2021 drilling program on its Miller Property located in Grenville Sur la Rouge, Quebec (“GSLR“). Drilling was conducted from November 28, 2021 (see news release dated December 8, 2021) to December 21st, 2021.
The primary objective of the drilling program was to better define and connect the area located between the two pits (Western and Eastern pits) of the Project as defined in its PEA (see news release dated March 4th2016). Figure 1 shows the recently completed drill holes in comparison of the previously defined pits.
The Company completed 3,024m of drilling in 32 holes varying in depth between 30 and 180 metres. The total length makes this program the largest drill campaign completed to-date on the Miller Property. The drilling was conducted by Downing Drilling based in Calumet at GSLR . SL Exploration Inc, a mineral exploration service company based in Acton Vale provided the geologists and technicians to complete the program. Core logging and sampling was completed in February 2022 and assays results were fully returned by July 2022. Generally, samples were taken every 1.5 -meter interval throughout the core and were assayed for graphical carbon (Cg) content by an independent laboratory while higher grade mineralization was sampled in smaller intersections to better identify the specific grade.
In this recent drill campaign, 2375 core samples were bagged and shipped to the laboratory. Additionally, the Company sent 51 blank samples, 78 standard samples and 133 quarter-split duplicate samples. Core samples were prepared by splitting core in half and were bagged and sent to Actlabs, Ancaster, for graphite assaying.
The Miller property host widespread low grade graphite mineralization that allowed to define two pits for the Miller Project. Previous calculated cut-off grade of 0.50%Cg (see news release dated December 14th2016) indicate that some material from the current drill program will likely be incorporated into a new model for the Miller mineralisation. A subset of intersections is shown in table 1, below. Note that multiple other graphite intersections were observed in the drilling campaign but are not shown here and will be incorporated in an upcoming resource calculation.
