VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/03/13 -- Canada Carbon Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CCB) is pleased to announce it has begun a second drilling program at its Miller Graphite Project. The Company has engaged George Downing Estate Drilling Ltd. (Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, QC) to complete a minimum of 1000 meters (m) of NQ-sized diamond drill holes (DDH). The drilling is designed to further extend graphite mineralization at depth and along strike, and to drill test three VTEM anomalies that were recently identified (see news release, November 14, 2013). The drilling is expected to be completed within two weeks.
The last exploration campaign was completed in late summer and tested the near-surface continuity of graphite mineralization at the VN1 and VN2 showings. A total of 595.3 meters of drilling was completed and encountered multiple graphite intersections, as well as graphite mineralization to a vertical depth of 39.3 m (see news release, November 25, 2013). A mineralized zone is believed to be present along the depth extension of VN2, and at least 470 m of drilling is planned to further expand the size of the mineralized corridor.
The previous VTEM airborne survey identified many anomalies on the Company's east block, and three priority-one anomalies were modeled to define drill targets (see news release, November 14, 2013). Drilling will test each of these conductors, and will also provide preliminary size and graphite content estimates for the mineralization. VTEM targets E1 and E2 are modeled as horizontal conductors that could correspond to altered rock units located over an intrusive body, whereas the sub-vertical target E3 models suggests graphite vein systems likely arising from a deeper source.
R. Bruce Duncan, CEO & Director of Canada Carbon Inc. stated, "We are pleased to have begun our second phase of drilling at Miller. This program will confirm our expectations for the size and quality of the mineralized system beneath the VN2 showing which is already established to a depth of 39.3 meters. Also, our three priority-one drill targets with VTEM signatures are like those over known mineralization; therefore we anticipate new discoveries at these locations."
Sampling and core splitting will be conducted on site with samples to be sent to Actlab (Ancaster, ON) for assay. Analysis of samples will be done for graphitic carbon (Cg) by multistage furnace treatment and infrared absorption. Duplicate samples will also be submitted to comply with the Company's QAQC program. The remainder of the core will be tagged, logged and stored on site.
