Rock Tech Assays 2.49% Graphite over 30.50 metres at Lochaber
February 11, 2013 (Source: Marketwatch) Vancouver, BC — Rock Tech Lithium Inc. announces the assay results for the first three channels completed at the Lochaber graphite project during the fourth quarter of 2012. These channels were cut on electromagnetic conductor “C” with the aim of establishing the surface continuity of the graphite mineralization encountered during the drill program.
“We are very pleased to confirm the continuation of wide graphite mineralization at the surface. The two primary graphite zones discovered on the Plumbago area of the property have resource potential with mineralization starting at the surface and continuing to a depth of over 150 metres,” said Afzaal Pirzada, Rock Tech’s Vice President of Exploration and interim CEO.
The Company has been actively exploring its Lochaber graphite property, in the Buckingham region of Quebec, since its acquisition in 2012. During the fourth quarter of 2012, Rock Tech completed over 7,000 metres of drilling and completed seven trenches. To date, the Company has received and announced assays for 3,000 metres of core samples and three channel samples with the assays for the remaining 4,000 metres of core samples and four trenches pending.
Recent exploration programs have focused exclusively on four contiguous claims in the southern area of the property near the past producing Plumbago mine. While surface samples from this area of the property returned up to 13.60% Cg, surface samples from other areas of the property returned up to 22% Cg.
Further, the Company announces the resignation of Victor Goncalves as director and wishes him well in his future endeavors.

All channel samples are logged and split by diamond saw and are typically eight to ten centimeters wide by three to five centimeters deep. The average length of each sample is one metre but can vary depending on geological boundaries. Additional QA/QC procedures include inserting blanks and standards into the channel sample stream at industry standard intervals with duplicate samples taken at intervals of twenty. The samples are prepped and analyzed by Global Mineral Research Limited in Burnaby, British Columbia. During analysis, the samples are dried, pulverized, leached and roasted at 450? Celsius and 1200? Celsius with measured weights taken between double ignitions. The laboratories also conduct duplicate and internal standard samples at intervals of ten as part of their QA/QC program.
