The 100% owned Champion Graphite property is located 60km north of Kenora, Ontario, Canada and consists of 29 units in 2 unpatented mining claims. The staked ground covers a large concentration of airborne electromagnetic (EM) anomalies hosted in metasediments. The airborne survey was conducted by Dighem Surveys & Processing Inc in 1989 on behalf of Champion Bear Resources Ltd. Dighem describes the anomalous area as consisting of numerous sub-parallel bedrock conductors of variable strength associated with a highly complex magnetic unit (MNDM assessment files). A year prior to the airborne geophysical survey, historical trenching was conducted by Bellwether Resources Ltd. in 1988. The trenching uncovered graphite occurrences where channel samples returned weighted average grades of up to 1.76% carbon over 25.0m (MNDM assessment files).

Field personnel made an initial visit to the property in the spring of 2016 to ground truth several of the EM anomalies. Using a geophysical instrument designed by Geonics Limited in 1963 known has the Ronka EM 15, the Company identified and confirmed multiple individual conductive zones associated with flake graphite in overburden covered areas. Seven small individual holes dug to bedrock at a depth of approximately 1m over a distance of approximately 1.3km across stratigraphy has identified flake graphite that graded from 1.7% to 8.98% Carbon[1].

Overburden stripping and channel sampling ​over selected airborne electromagnetic anomalies, Ronka 15 anomalies, and near the highest-grade 2016 grab samples were completed in the summer of 2016. Samples collected highlighted flake graphite-mineralized zones that graded up to 8.02% Carbon. Several of the trenches demonstrate mineralization to the boundaries of the channels and have potential to extend beyond the excavated areas. Highlights from the 2016 trenching program include:

Trench Max % C Best Interval Including
1 6.87 1.86% over 14m 3.01% over 8m
2 4.52 1.16% over 12m 2.37% over 8m
3 8.19 2.5% over 30m 4.76% over 16m
4 1.17 1.1% over 4m
5 8.02 3.23% over 8m
