The Dun Raven is a graphite deposit located near Shawville, QC, about 80km west of Ottawa. A geophysical anomaly exists of which only about 15% has been drilled. A historic resource was calculated to contain 571,532 tons of ore grading 4.72% graphite, based on the drill assays. The package consists of fifteen claims, one of which includes almost the entire anomaly. As consideration for the transfer and sale of the Dun Raven Claims and related assets, the Company will at closing shall make a cash payment of $10,000 CDN and will issue 250,000 shares to Quebec Inc. A further tranche of 250,000 shares will be issued under a performance schedule that both parties will work through and will complete on or before closing. The performance is based on milestones of grade, quality and feasibility. In addition the Company shall pay to Quebec Inc a 2% NPR Royalty, to be defined in the definitive Agreement.
A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves; and Canada Carbon is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves.

Canada Carbon holds 100% interest in two graphite properties, The Asbury and The Maria Graphite Projects. The Asbury Mine, a past producing Asbury Graphite Mine property consists of two claims and is located approximately 10km northeast of Notre-Dame-du-Laus and about 120km north of the Ottawa-Gatineau area. The open pit mine and mill were in operation from 1980 to 1989 where a total of less than 70,000 tons were processed. The Maria Graphite Project consists of 38 mineral claims located in Maria Township, 17km south of the community of Bissett Creek on the Trans Canada Highway between the cities of Ottawa and North Bay, Ontario. These claims cover an area of approximately 2,000 hectares (4,940 acres) that surround and are contiguous to Northern Graphite's Bissett Creek graphite deposit. Northern Graphite recently reported the extraction of very large high purity flake graphite consistent across the entire resource with overall recovery rates of 97%. (NGC.V News Release 23/04/2012).
