VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 -- Canada Carbon Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CCB)(FRANKFURT: U7N1) is pleased to announce it has completed the Phase I exploration program on its 100% owned historical Miller Lump/Vein Graphite Mine located 80 kilometres ("km") west of Montreal near Grenville, Quebec. Geophysical surveying and sampling have been completed on the property resulting in the discovery of 17 new, conductive anomalies. Multiple electro-magnetic (EM) survey methods were applied by Geosig Inc. to compare the conductive response of known graphite veins through an orientation study, including those at the historical Miller Graphite Mine site. These geophysical surveys will assist in establishing high priority drill targets for an upcoming 2013 drill program and help to characterize the known graphite occurrences. At this time only 1.3 km2 of the 13.2 km2 Miller Property land package has been surveyed, with the remainder yet to be tested. Graphite samples have now been sent to both SGS Mineral Services (Lakefield) and Activation Laboratories Ltd. (ACTLABS) for purity testing and assaying, the results are expected in the next two weeks.

R. Bruce Duncan, Interim President & CEO of Canada Carbon states: "We are extremely pleased with the results of the Phase I exploration program on our 13.2 km2 land holding at the historic Miller Lump/Vein Graphite Mine. Multiple geophysical surveys over a portion of the property have identified 17 new conductive anomalies and helped define a series of high priority drill targets. Following up on sampling completed in March this year that returned grades as high as 80.1% Cg, the Company is now focused on expanding the recent high grade graphite discoveries. Work completed to date provides a much improved geological context for the Miller property. We anticipate a productive summer exploration season having now completed stripping of overburden and trenching of new anomalies revealing lump graphite veins at surface. A detailed sampling program to define the extent, grade and quality of the graphite mineralization is now underway and will be immediately followed by a drill program."
Instruments used in the Phase I exploration program included the MaxMin II-5, an IMAGEM prototype #2, a Beep-Mat 4+, a TxII 1800W transmitter with ELREC-6 receiver, and an Induced Polarization ("IP") survey. The MaxMin survey covered a total of 4.3 line-km with readings every 12.5 metres. The IMAGEM survey totalled 2.5 line-kilometres over lines adjacent to the historic Miller pit, and 20 readings per metre. The IP survey was done over 1.3 line-kilometres as a follow-up on IMAGEM anomalies. Within the Miller pit, the main vein at the southeast corner was delineated with the Beep Mat and was found to curve east into a brecciated zone comprising several conductive veins.
The IMAGEM survey identified seventeen (17) new anomalies. The two strongest anomalies occur 100 metres west and 20 metres east of the mine pit, with weaker but well-defined anomalous peaks to the southeast of the mine pit. The weaker anomalies are found southeast of the pit, and can be correlated from line to line to form a NW-SE trending conductive axis 320 metres in length. The axis passes north through the historic pit for 90 metres and to the southeast for 230 metres, and corresponds to the contact between marble and quartzite mapped in 1991, which is still open to the north. The Beep Mat 4+ tracked the known graphite vein extending southeast from the mine pit, which continues southeast for 25 metres, then curves east into an area with that generates a broad positive Beep Mat response. The broad response is perpendicular to the IMAGEM conductive axis, and is of particular interest as it is a brecciated zone with several intersecting graphite veins.
