Canadia-based Standard Graphite has expanded the main graphite zone at the Mousseau East deposit by 700m following the completion of exploration drilling.

Standard Graphite had undertaken a diamond drilling program at the property last year with the focus on tracing the historical mineralization towards the southwest along a well-defined conductor.

Currently, the company is preparing for another phase of diamond drilling along the wider and richer intercepts to define additional resources.

Standard Graphite president and CEO Chris Bogart noted that expansion drilling has confirmed potential 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," added Bogart.

The Mousseau East Property was acquired by Standard Graphite in April 2012.
