The results obtained appear highly promising and will require additional drilling along the wider and richer intercepts to define some potential additional resources. The company is currently preparing this additional phase of diamond drilling.
During the expansion phase of the program, some 10 widely spaced holes were drilled to cover a well-defined EM target. The expansion drilling was planned in consultation with MRB & Associates who was responsible for the supervision of the drilling operations, the logging and sampling of the core. Sampling including the addition standardized reference material and blanks according to a strict QA/QC protocol was carried out in their Val-d'Or facility and half split core samples were shipped to Act Labs of Ancaster, Ontario for graphitic carbon assaying.

Chris Bogart, President and CEO, explains: "Expansion drilling confirmed that there is still room for additional resources on Mousseau East. These results are also evidence that every conductor on the property will need to be systematically explored to fully characterize the potential of the project." The Mousseau East Property was acquired by Standard Graphite in April of 2012 (see press release April 24, 2012) and is located some 40 kilometres northeast of the town of Mont-Laurier in northwestern Quebec and within 50 kilometres of Timcal Canada Inc.'s producing Lac-des-Iles Graphite Mine, which is currently the larger of the two producing mines in North America.
