About Standard Graphite
Standard Graphite Corp. is focused exclusively on the exploration and development of a large portfolio of flake graphite properties in Canada. The company is rapidly positioning itself as North America’s premier pure-play graphite exploration company and it controls 100% interest in 12 highly prospective graphite properties within known graphite districts in both Quebec and Ontario. An aggressive 2012 exploration strategy has commenced and will be implemented by a geologic team with the pedigree of a previous world-class graphite discovery.
Standard Graphite’s nine Quebec properties are all located within these districts and centered on the metasedimentary belts of the Grenville with known marble/gneiss lithologies considered essential to host graphite deposit. They have also been metamorphosed to sufficiently high grade to produce the larger graphite flakes.
They are located within the three major graphite districts in Quebec; Wakefield, North Shore and New Quebec with notable deposits such as Lac des Iles (Timcal) and Lac Knife (Focus Metals).
