The option property is considered to have potential for large flake, crystalline graphite and has an historic record of exploration for graphite mineralization and production.

The acreage comprises 32 mineral claims, covering 1,922.75 hectares in the Buckingham Region of Lochaber Township, 45km to the northeast of Gatineau, Quebec.

Over an area of 2km wide by 8km long, there are three graphite occurrences, the McLaren, Kelly and Burke and two past producing mines the Mayo and the Plumbago.

Rock Tech Lithium president and CEO Eunho Lee said the acquisition of the highly prospective graphite property aligns with the company’s objective of diversifying its asset base in the advanced technology materials category.

"With the emergence of large flake graphite use in lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells, along with its many other technology-driven applications such as the use of carbon fibre in the auto and aviation sectors, adding a complementary asset to our portfolio of lithium projects positions Rock Tech with the potential of providing an integrated mix of materials for the high tech and alternative energy sectors."
