Big North Graphite Corporation ("NRT") - Luciana Prospect Option - Abitibi Greenstone Belt - Quebec:
A $100,000 first-phase exploration program has been approved and will commence when field conditions permit in 2013. The program is anticipated to consist of an airborne survey and follow-up program of prospecting and sampling with the objective of defining target areas on the property for the establishment of detailed mini-grids, geological mapping and ground geophysical surveys, with the objective of defining drill targets. Golden Valley Mines is the project operator.
The Luciana Prospect is prospective for both gold and REE (Rare Earth Element) mineralization, as it straddles the Cameron Lake Deformation Zone, well known for its spatial association with gold mineralization, and its proximity to the Grevet Carbonatite Complex that is associated with REE mineralization as well as known occurrences over the southern part of the property. Big North Graphite has until May 30, 2013 to incur the first tranche of expenditures consisting of $250,000 on the Luciana Prospect per the terms of the amended option agreement.
