Graphite One Drills 38.87m of 10.57% Graphite Including 7m of 20.98%; Results From First Ten Holes Confirm Wide Intercepts of Near Surface High Grade Graphite
December 1, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) — Graphite One Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GPH)(OTCQX:GPHOF) (“Graphite One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results of the first ten holes of the recently completed twenty-hole diamond drill program on their Graphite Creek Project located near Nome, Alaska (see press release dated November 10, 2014).
- All 10 holes intercept significant widths of high grade, near surface graphite mineralization
- Select intercepts include 7m of 20.98%, 50m of 6.13%, 38m of 10.57% and 23m of 8.70% graphite
- Geology and assays confirm excellent vertical and lateral continuity of the mineralization
- 2014 drilling will be utilized to move a portion of the resource from inferred to indicated status
Graphite One has received results for drill-holes 14GCH001 to 14GCH010 which in-filled between previous drill holes completed in 2012 and 2013 (see Figure 1). The drilling was completed in September and October and was designed to increase the vertical and lateral drill spacing for a 1000 m strike length of the 4.8 km long Graphite Creek deposit, in preparation for a revised NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource inventory to be completed in Q1 2015. Graphite One released an updated mineral resource inventory in January of 2014 totaling 284.71 Million Tonnes (“Mt”) of 4.5% Graphitic Carbon (“Cg”), and 37.68Mt of 9.2% Cg at cut-offs of 2% Cg and 7% Cg, respectively (see News Release of January 20, 2014).
The results are summarized in the Table below and highlights include 50.18m of 6.13% Graphitic Carbon (“Cg”); including 6.15m of 17.33% Cg, and 38.87m of 10.57% Cg including 7m assaying 20.98% Cg. Copies of the initial six cross sections from the eleven section 2014 drilling program showing the drill hole geology and assays are included in the Appendix.
“These high grade near surface assays continue to demonstrate that the Graphite Creek Deposit stands to be the premier large flake, high grade graphite deposit in North America. The mineralization continuity is outstanding and the favourable geological structures are impressive. We look forward to releasing the final 10 holes in the near future,” stated Anthony Huston, President and CEO for Graphite One Resources. “We are charging ahead on our inaugural PEA to demonstrate to end buyers and shareholders the economic viability of this project.”

All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts that address access to capital, regulatory approvals, exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects, are forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, continuity of mineralization, uncertainties related to the ability to obtain necessary permits, licenses and title and delays due to third party opposition, changes in government policies regarding mining and natural resource exploration and exploitation, and continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions.

The mineral resource estimates reported in this press release were prepared in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) applies different standards in the classification of mineralization. In particular, while the terms “measured”,”indicated” and “inferred” mineral resources are required pursuant to NI 43- 101, the SEC does not recognize such terms. Canadian standards differ significantly from the requirements of the SEC. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories constitute or will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, “inferred” mineral resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian securities laws, issuers must not make any disclosure of results of an economic analysis that includes inferred mineral resources, except in rare cases.
