In that news release Soldi stated that “a strong, wide airborne conductor was discovered and a ground visit to the location revealed massive flake graphite.” The geophysical map of the area shows a strong magnetic low, which may represent the airborne conductor on the Soldi property, extending through the Saint-Sixte area. The map can be viewed at .

Dany Boilard Inc. has been hired to carry out detailed exploration through GIS compilation, site visits and a mass mailing to the landowners in the Saint-Sixte property area. All property data on the MRNF E-Sigeom database will also be compiled to prepare a comprehensive exploration plan for the 2012 exploration season. The location and address of the private landowners in the area will be determined by a mass mailing / compilation of answers to build a database of land ownership that can be accessed for exploration, as required under articles 235 and 236 of the Quebec mining act.

The new graphite property is located five kilometres west of the town of Saint-Sixte, Quebec, just off of Route 317, approximately 65 kilometres to the east of Ottawa. The area has been subject to logging and forestry work and a good road network is in place. The property is located in a historic graphite mining district, and was explored for graphite in the early 1950′s and again in the 1980′s, when an airborne survey was flown to better define targets. The Saint-Sixte Property is 100% owned by Atocha Resources and is not subject to any NSR or work commitments.
