Canada Carbon Makes Significant Graphite Discoveries on its 100% Owned Miller Graphite Project
October 23rd, 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada – Canada Carbon Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: CCB) is pleased to report that the VN6 showing, first mentioned in the press release dated September 24, 2014, has become the most significant graphite zone identified since the acquisition of the Miller Project. The VN6 showing is associated with other previously reported graphite mineralization, identified as VN4, VN5 and VN6 Extension. All of these showings are inside a 155 metre (“m”) long corridor. The 155 m long corridor aligns perfectly with a 250m long conductive Induced Polarization (“IP”) anomaly modelled at 5m depth. When combined with conductive zones identified at 20 and 40 m depths, the conductive anomaly extends for over 700 m, reaching the historic Miller Mine Pit to the north and the E3 airborne anomaly to the south. This conductive anomaly is open to the northwest and to the southeast, at the boundaries of the IP grid.
Extensive trenching and drilling are currently underway to test the conductive anomaly at various points along strike. Drilling to-date has revealed that the VN6 mineralization continues to depth, with significant graphitic intersections, identified by visual examination of the core, currently at 9m and 22m beneath the VN6 surface vein showing. A large chargeability anomaly also runs parallel to the conductive anomaly, which can be explained by disseminated graphite already observed in trenches.
The VN6 showing was first identified with the man-portable Phispy geophysical system. Trenching over a strong Phispy anomaly revealed a succession of marble and graphite-rich skarn bands. This discovery led the Company to perform an IP survey in the southern area of the Miller Property’s East Block. The geophysical survey consisted of 14 grid lines that varied in length between 225 and 450 m, which covered a total area of 0.2 km2 between the E3 anomaly and the VN1 and VN2 showings, and included the historic Miller Mine pit. Computer modeling of the IP data generated a total of 25 chargeability anomalies, along with many conductive anomalies. Trenching on VN6 has uncovered marble and graphite-rich skarn bands with widths over 7 m, which can be followed in the newly exposed bedrock surfaces for over 40 m. Similar mineralization is found in the VN6 Extension trench located 45 m along strike, suggesting that the skarn unit is continuous for at least 90 m. The trenching will continue as the discovery is still open along strike in both directions.
In August 2014, the Company commenced a 400 m drill program. However, due to follow-up of the VN6 discovery, it now exceeds 1,000 m and is continuing. The Company has decided to defer detailed core-logging, sampling, and assaying of the recovered core until after snow cover curtails field exploration activities. Graphite is readily identified through visual examination of exposed bedrock and drill core, and this evidence has provided sufficient information to facilitate efficient exploration. A detailed report of the complete drill program, and surface sampling activities, will be provided at a later date.

26 tonnes of material from the VN6 showing, along with 15 tonnes from the VN4 showing, were included in the 102 tonne bulk sample which achieved better than 99.8% C(t) graphite purity during pilot-scale flotation concentration (see news release dated September 24th 2014). www.canadacarbon.com/vn4-vn6-samples
