Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 28, 2022) – Graphano Vitality Ltd.(TSXV: GEL) (OTCQB: GELEF) (FSE: 97G0) (“Graphano” or the “Firm“) is happy to announce that it has entered into an choice settlement (the “Possibility Settlement“) with Mr. Daniel St-Pierre (the “Vendor“), pursuant to which the Firm has been granted the unique proper and choice to accumulate 100% of the Commonplace graphite historic mine (“Commonplace“), positioned 32 km northeast of the Firm’s Lac Aux Bouleaux graphite mission.
Luisa Moreno, Chief Govt Officer of the Firm, said: “Primarily based totally on historic studies we have been capable of drill proper by the high-grade mineralization on the historic Commonplace mine. Going ahead we are going to develop an in depth exploration plan for Commonplace, beginning with airborne geophysics, with the intention of defining extra important sources inside trucking distance that could possibly be added to future manufacturing from the historic useful resource at Lac Aux Bouleaux. The ahead plan is to consolidate potential sources from our regional claims and to feed our personal centralized processing plant utilizing the prevailing mill buildings at Lac Aux Bouleaux.”
Key Outcomes at Commonplace
- Twenty seize samples from current visits to the positioning yielded assay outcomes between 5.32% Cg and 26.4% Cg. The typical grade of the 20 samples was 19.8% Cg (see Desk 1).
- Historic trench and pitting work resulted in 9.0% Cg over 4.2 m, 22.4% Cg over 3.04 m and 11% Cg over 10.6 m.
- Latest drilling outcomes yielded 11.61% Cg over 3.3 metres (see Desk 1).
Throughout current website visits, twenty floor seize samples have been collected from quite a few outdated trenches, pits and bedrock sources inside a 100 m by 75 m space close to the historic Commonplace Mine shaft space. This work has confirmed the historic studies of a number of horizons of high-grade graphite mineralization. The current seize pattern assays vary in grade from 5.32% Cg to 26.4% Cg. The typical grade of the 20 samples collected was 19.8% Cg.
In Might 2022, the Firm accomplished three quick drill holes totalling 127 metres within the shaft space. Two of the holes intersected encouraging graphite mineralization highlighted by an intersection of 11.61 % Cg over 3.3 m (core size). The third gap entered the outdated underground mine workings at a depth of 23 m and was deserted with out testing the mineralization. Particulars of the floor sampling and drill program are contained in Desk 1 beneath.

|UTM Nad 83, Zone 18|
An airborne geophysical survey shall be performed at Commonplace in June/July of 2022. An in depth exploration plan can be being developed to advance this mission.
All floor seize and drill core samples have been bagged and tagged utilizing finest practices and have been delivered to Activation Laboratories (“ACTLABS“), Ancaster, Ontario, for pattern preparation and analyses utilizing laboratories’ Code 4F-C Graphitic, analyzing C-Graphite (infrared) the place the pattern is subjected to a multistage furnace therapy to take away all types of carbon except graphitic carbon; and C-Complete (infrared). ACTLABS is an unbiased industrial, accredited ISO Licensed Laboratory.
Phrases of the Possibility Agreement:
The Possibility Settlement covers six claims totalling 355 hectares. On the closing of the Possibility Settlement the Vendor will obtain 50,000 widespread shares of Graphano. On the primary anniversary of the Possibility Settlement the Vendor will obtain 50,000 extra shares of Graphano and on the second anniversary the Vendor will obtain 100,000 extra shares of Graphano, plus a money cost within the quantity of $20,000. The Vendor will retain a royalty of two% internet smelter returns on future manufacturing from the Commonplace Mine property. The Firm could have the choice to buy the royalty for $600,000 money at any time.
The Possibility Settlement is topic to acceptance by the TSX Enterprise Trade.
Commonplace Historic Graphite Mine Highlights:
The realm is underlain by sedimentary rocks of Precambrian age, often known as the Grenville Sequence. The primary host rocks of the deposit are a sequence of paragneiss and feldspathic quartzites which strike N 80oE and dip 32o south. The gneisses are irregularly mineralized with graphite and in locations comprise wealthy concentrations of the mineral. The related quartzites are additionally graphitic. A highway as soon as led from the mine website to a small mill, about 800 metres north of the deposit. The mill is now in ruins.
The unique operators produced graphite on a small scale between 1923 and 1930 however ceased operations as a result of low unit worth of graphite through the 1929 market crash. Furthermore, evidently the small-scale operation and the inefficient milling course of recognized at the moment could have led to the failure of the enterprise however not for lack of ore.
Geophysical surveys accomplished within the Eighties over the world recognized a conductive anomaly outlining the graphite zone, which is 500 metres lengthy and confirmed by the outdated 1922 trenches and pits within the rapid space of the historic mine.
An airborne geophysical survey overlaying a bigger space shall be performed by Graphano in June/July of 2022.
New Graphite Claims
Along with signing the Possibility Settlement for Commonplace, the Firm has staked two units of extra graphite claims, 5 km and 10 km south from the Lac Aux Bouleaux mission, as a part of the Firm’s consolidation technique. A complete of 11 claims overlaying 600 hectares have been staked and comprise the Dudley and Lac Vert-Bouthillier graphite showings.
The event of historic graphite deposits in addition to new discoveries, all inside trucking distance, ought to enable for useful resource consolidation to at least one processing centre at Lac Aux Bouleaux.
