Standard Graphite Identifies EM Conductor Coincident With River Property Graphite Occurrence

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:15 AM on Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(May 9, 2012) – Standard Graphite Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGH) (the “Company”), is pleased to report that it has received the results from the electromagnetic airborne geophysical survey on its River property, Québec. These results again confirmed that the graphite occurrence present at surface is associated with a conductive horizon extending for several kilometres.

The results from the survey outline a well-defined conductor in association with metasedimentary rocks. The existing surface occurrence being coincident with the conductor confirms the graphitic nature of the EM response.

The River Property is located some 20 kilometres north of Sept-Iles in the Grenville Province. The Grenville is a geological province characterized by high-grade metamorphic rocks of Proterozoic age and is well recognized for its numerous graphite occurrences. Standard’s properties all lie within the Grenville in the graphite domains.

These results were the last ones expected from the airborne survey completed earlier in March of 2012 by Aeroquest International Ltd. on the company’s Eastern Quebec properties.

Chris Bogart, President and CEO of Standard Graphite comments: “This equates to 3 out of 3 for our properties located in Eastern Quebec having excellent EM results that require additional exploration programs. The targets are now being picked for the ground follow-up. We are pleased with the progression of the Phase I field program on our Ontario properties and we are currently gearing up for the start of the Phase I field program for the Quebec properties.”

Aeroquest International Ltd., using a helicopter rigged with a magnetometer and TDEM systems, performed the airborne survey and post treatment of the data. The survey was designed to optimize the response from potential conductors and to discriminate between the types of conductors.

Ontario Property Update

The field reconnaissance phase is now completed on the Black Donald and Little-Bryan properties, in Ontario and a series of samples were sent to lab for assay. Results are expected in early June 2012 and will serve in orienting the Phase II field program scheduled for later this month.
