Graniz Graphite Discovery: 5% Over 209 Feet and 7.2% Over 163 Feet
- A Discovery 28 Miles from World Class Producer IMERYS TIMCAL - Changes on the Board of Directors
Graniz Mondal Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GRA.H) (the "Company" or "Graniz Graphite") is pleased to announce wide intercepts of graphite mineralization at the Brunet graphite deposit located 28 miles from North America''s only graphite producer IMERYS TIMCAL near Mont-Laurier. Dr Berthe Lambert, Chairman, comments: "The initial drilling results will add significant new tonnage to the Brunet large flake graphite deposit. The most interesting development is the discovery of a new graphite zone at the 100 metre level that was not identified in historical data. The drilling program should allow us to confirm that we are in front of a large flake graphite body similar to IMERYS TIMCAL''s deposit 28 miles west of our mine. Also, there is a breakthrough, graphene can be produced from large flake graphite".
