Great Lakes Graphite Prepares to Step Up Graphite Purification in Upstate New York

Ashland is commissioning a new furnace, optimized for purifying micronized graphite powders

TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Great Lakes Graphite Inc., doing business as NovoCarbon Corporation, (“GLK”, “NovoCarbon” or the “Company” TSX-V:GLK, OTCQB:GLKIF, FWB:8GL)  announces today an update on graphite purification operations with strategic partner Ashland Advanced Materials (“AAM” or “Ashland”) in upstate New York.


  • Build is complete, commissioning has started for new furnace designed by AAM for graphite powder.
  • AAM has delivered six crucibles for volume thermal purification of graphite.
  • Evaluation of process equipment for spheronization and coating nears completion.

Commissioning of New Furnace

Following several months of design, engineering and construction, NovoCarbon’s strategic partner Ashland Advanced Materials is now in the process of commissioning a new furnace that they designed specifically for use with micronized and spheronized graphite powders.  The new furnace design employs a substantially different approach that was developed with the goal of increasing throughput and driving down costs.  It is anticipated that the throughput capacity of the new furnace will substantially  address the near term volume requirements that have been provided by customer prospects.

Several hundred pounds of micronized graphite were recently delivered to Ashland for use in the  commissioning of the new furnace design.  Commissioning will provide actual data on performance and costs that will provide further substantiation for NovoCarbon’s financial model.

Dedicated Crucibles

NovoCarbon recently purchased six crucibles that were designed and custom-built by Ashland. The crucibles are being used by Ashland’s facility for toll-processing (see news releases dated March 22, 2017 and July 18, 2017) NovoCarbon’s graphite powders. Dedicated crucibles completely mitigate any potential cross-contamination risk that could arise from shared-use crucibles.

The crucibles are designed for use in Ashland’s batch furnaces and will facilitate the fulfillment of initial orders for high purity micronized graphite that are anticipated from manufacturers in the advanced materials and battery industries, based on their guidance. Having the crucibles available ensures NovoCarbon’s access to purification capacity during the commissioning period for the new furnace and beyond.

Evaluation of Process Equipment

Over the past two years, the Company has engaged in extensive evaluations of processing equipment for spherical graphite and for coating graphite.  Over a half dozen spherical graphite  equipment vendors from around the world engaged in these qualifications.  As a result of this work, the Company has built an extensive knowledge base that will be used to inform the completion of the processing flowsheet required to manufacture coated spherical purified graphite.

Paul Ferguson, CEO of NovoCarbon’s US-based subsidiary said, “In this first phase of commercial operations we will be expanding on the initial scope of operations that we had discussed with Ashland. We are collocating additional flowsheet components in one place, which yields obvious logistical advantages.  While collocation will accommodate the manufacturing capacity that is required in the near term, the Company is continuing to scout for other potential locations for a dedicated facility in the Niagara Falls area and also in other regions.”

The Company is also engaged in ongoing evaluations of alternative purification technologies with the goal of identifying highly scalable approaches that offer either improved economics or environmentally beneficial advantages, or both.

About NovoCarbon Corporation: NovoCarbon is a Clean Technology Minerals Processing Company supplying customers with innovative, high quality value-added carbon products.

There is no significant graphite production in North America now. As pricing and demand continue to rise, NovoCarbon is one of the first new domestic suppliers to a growing regional customer base. We continually work to deliver products of the best quality with outstanding customer service.

The Company is party to an agreement for long-term supply of high quality natural graphite concentrate from Brazil. NovoCarbon is presently working with an established US-based processor for toll micronization services. The Company has partnered with Ashland Advanced Materials for commercial-scale purification operations at Ashland’s 110,000 square foot purification facility located in Niagara, New York.

Through our partner relationships, NovoCarbon began selling micronized synthetic graphite beginning in 2016 and now supplies micronized and high purity micronized natural flake graphite products to a growing customer base.

Further information regarding NovoCarbon can be found on the Company’s website at:

NovoCarbon trades as GLKIF on the OTCQB market in the US and as GLK on the TSX Venture Exchange in Canada.  There are currently 132,656,830 shares outstanding.

Note: The current legal name of the corporation is Great Lakes Graphite Inc., which is doing business as NovoCarbon Corporation until final approval by the shareholders and the TSX Venture Exchange.

Abitibi Royalties Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

VAL-D’OR, Québec, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abitibi Royalties Inc. (RZZ-TSX-V: “Abitibi Royalties” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received conditional acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) to conduct the normal course issuer bid (the “2018 NCIB”). Under the 2018 NCIB, Abitibi Royalties may purchase for cancellation, from time to time at its discretion, up to 626,306 of its issued and outstanding common shares (representing 5% of Abitibi Royalties’ issued and outstanding common shares as of September 25, 2018). Purchases will be made on the open market through the facilities of the TSX-V, with TD Securities Inc. conducting the 2018 NCIB on behalf of Abitibi Royalties.

Abitibi Royalties is of the view that repurchase of its issued shares, to be returned to treasury for cancellation, is warranted as the trading price of the Company’s shares, conservatively calculated, is below management’s estimated after tax net present value. Accordingly, the purchase for cancellation of shares by Abitibi Royalties during these times will benefit the remaining shareholders by increasing their proportionate ownership in the Company.

The 2018 NCIB will commence on October 6, 2018, and will terminate on October 5, 2019, or such earlier time as the 2018 NCIB is completed or at the option of Abitibi Royalties. Any shares acquired by Abitibi Royalties pursuant to the 2018 NCIB will be cancelled.

Under the 2018 NCIB, Common Shares may be repurchased in open market transactions on the TSX-V or by such other means as may be permitted by the TSX-V and under applicable Canadian securities laws. The price paid by Abitibi Royalties will be based on the market price at the time of purchase and not higher than the last independent trade of a board lot (board lot = 100 shares). As part of the 2018 NCIB, Abitibi Royalties may enter into a pre-defined plan with its broker (TD Securities Inc.) to allow for the repurchase of shares at times when Abitibi Royalties ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise. Any such plans entered into with the Company’s broker will be adopted in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.

In accordance with TSX-V policy, purchases by Abitibi Royalties under the 2018 NCIB are limited, when aggregated with the total of all other purchases in the preceding 30 days, to a maximum of 2% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares at the time the purchases are made.

The actual number of Common Shares which may be purchased and the timing of such purchases will be determined by Abitibi Royalties. Decisions regarding purchases will be based on market conditions, share price, best use of available cash, and other factors including other options to expand the Company’s portfolio of assets.

Abitibi Royalties has purchased to date an aggregate 13,500 of its common shares through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange under a normal course issuer bid (the “2017 NCIB”) currently being conducted by the Company, which commenced October 6, 2017 and will end on October 5, 2018. The common shares purchased to date by the Company under the 2017 NCIB were purchased at an average price of $9.06 per common share. 11,600 of the common shares purchased to date under the 2017 NCIB have been returned to the Company’s treasury and cancelled and 1,900 common shares purchased from August 31, 2018 to the date of this release, will be cancelled on September 30, 2018. 

Abitibi Royalties previously purchased:

  • an aggregate of 66,700 of its common shares through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange under a normal course issuer bid (the “2016 NCIB”) conducted by the Company, which commenced October 6, 2016 and ended on October 5, 2017. Common shares purchased by the Company under the 2016 NCIB were purchased at an average price of $9.24 per common share. The 66,700 common shares purchased to date under the 2016 NCIB have been returned to the Company’s treasury and cancelled; and
  • repurchased an aggregate of 77,600 of its issued common shares through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange under a normal course issuer bid (the “2015 NCIB”) previously conducted by the Company, which commenced October 6, 2015 and ended on October 5, 2016. Common shares purchased to date by the Company under the 2015 NCIB were purchased at an average price of $3.19 per common share. The 77,600 common shares purchased to date under the 2015 NCIB have been returned to the Company’s treasury and cancelled.

Manitou Gold Announces Another New Acquisition of Mining Claims in the Goudreau Belt

SUDBURY, Ontario, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manitou Gold Inc. (TSX-V: MTU) (the “Company” or “Manitou”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Dog Lake Property, which is located within the Goudreau-Localsh deformation zone (the “GLDZ”).

A photo accompanying this announcement is available at

The Dog Lake Property is comprised of 82 mining claim units covering a total area of over 3,800 acres along the northern domain of the GLDZ.  The property covers a number of historic gold showings associated with mineralized shear zones. The shear zones are part of the northern domain of the GLDZ, which, to the west, hosts Alamos’ Island Gold mine and Argonaut Gold’s (Prodigy Gold) Magino deposit, along with several past-producing mines, including the Kremzar, Edwards and Cline mines, as well as Manitou Gold’s Goudreau Patents property.

Grab samples collected on the property by the Ontario Geological Survey in 1983 returned assays ranging between 3.4 and 74.6 g/t gold.  More recent prospecting led to the discovery of a new high-grade gold showing on the Property where a grab sample returned an assay of 29.2 g/t gold. No follow-up work has been completed on this showing to date.

In consideration for the 100% purchase of the Dog Lake Property, Manitou Gold will issue 800,000 common shares of the Company and pay the current vendors $5,000.  There is an underlying 2.0% NSR payable to the underlying vendor.  Manitou has agreed with the underlying vendor, who holds the NSR, to allow for the purchase by Manitou Gold of half (1.0%) of the underlying 2% NSR at any time for cash consideration of $1,000,000.  Closing Dog Lake Property purchase is subject to Board approval of the vendors and of Manitou Gold, as well as to TSXV approval.

Manitou Gold’s current property portfolio along the GLDZ now includes the Goudreau Patents, which consist of 160 acres of surface and mining rights patented lands and Manitou Gold’s recently acquired 15,900 acres of contiguous lands comprised of the Rockstar, Midas and Dog Lake Properties.  These properties cover a strike length of over 17 km along the eastern portion of the GLDZ.

In recent years, the GLDZ has seen significant new investment in gold exploration and development activity.  The western half of the GLDZ is dominated by Argonaut Gold’s Magino advanced development project and Alamos Gold Inc.’s Island Gold Mine property, that latter of which was acquired by Alamos last November through its takeover of Richmont Mines.  Immediately to the east of the Alamos property are the past producing Edwards and Cline Mines, respectively.  Manitou Gold’s Goudreau Patents property is located just to the east of the Edwards and Cline Mines.

Manitou will continue with prospecting and mapping and will also begin mechanical stripping and channel sampling on its GLDZ properties throughout the fall.  Further results will be announced as they become available.

A plan map showing the Company’s properties along the GLDZ is included as part of this news release and can be found on the Manitou Gold website.

For gold values reported herein, the Company has relied upon public reports issued by the Ontario Geological Survey and prior property owners.  These results have not been verified by Manitou Gold.

White Gold Encounters Multiple High-Grade Surface Results including 139.9g/t, 134.6 g/t and 132.9 g/t Gold from Selected Grab Samples at Vertigo Discovery Extending Strike Length to 1.1km

Multiple High-Grade Surface Results up to 41.8g/t Gold also Encountered at the Suspicion Target 4.1km Along Trend from Vertigo on JP Ross Property, Yukon

TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the "Company") is pleased to announce multiple high grade surface samples along strike from the recent Vertigo discovery and further expanding the footprint of the high grade mineralized system. Surface grab samples were taken on the Vertigo target along trend from the recently announced discovery hole which encountered 56.25 g/t Au over 3.05m within a broader intercept of 17.34 g/t Au over 10.67m from 3.05m depth (announced September 17, 2018) as well as on the undrilled Suspicion target area 4.1km along trend from Vertigo on the Company’s JP Ross Property, Yukon Canada. The samples are interpreted as being in-place and representative of the bedrock below due to the unglaciated nature of the area. Images to accompany this news release can be found at

Highlights Include:

  • Surface grab samples of 139.9g/t, 134.6 g/t and 132.9 g/t Au on the Vertigo target encountered over a 685m strike length with seven samples grading over 10 g/t Au, eleven samples over 1 g/t Au and five samples encountering silver exceeding 100 g/t, including 1 sample greater than 1,000 g/t silver.
  • Strong mineralization was returned over a 1.1km NW trend on the Vertigo Target, with the most significant results on undrilled sections of the target, with trend remaining open in multiple directions.
  • 8 samples from approximately 100m east of the previously released RAB drill results returned values ranging from 0.152 g/t to 134.6 g/t Au, averaging 28.7 g/t Au, and are associated with eastern projections of the V3 to V6 zones.
  • Surface grab samples on the undrilled Suspicion target area, 4.1km SE of the Vertigo target returned results up to 41.8 g/t Au with 4 samples greater than 7 g/t Au with strike remaining open in multiple directions.            
  • Structural trend identified to exceed over 12km, with testing underway on new targets along trend.             
  • RC drilling is currently underway to follow up on results, with additional assays from RAB drilling expected to be to be received in the near future.

Grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property.

Exploration of the JP Ross property is being conducted as part of the Company’s fully funded regional exploration program backed by partners Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM, NYSE: AEM) and Kinross Gold Corp (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC).

“These results further validate our belief that the Vertigo is a large-scale, high-grade, structurally controlled gold system. The results of up to 139.9 g/t gold at Vertigo are among the highest grades seen in the White Gold district and significantly expand the footprint of the mineralized system.” stated Jodie Gibson, VP Exploration of the Company.  “The findings at the Suspicion show the potential for additional high-grade discoveries over the +12km Vertigo Trend, and we look forward to the results of our follow up work in the area.”

Vertigo Target Results
Rock grab sampling on the Vertigo target defined strong mineralization over a 1.1km NW trend with results ranging from trace to 139.9 g/t Au, including 3 samples >132 g/t Au with 7 samples >10 g/t Au and 11 samples >1 g/t Au. These results also extended several of the 10 mineralized zones (V1 to V10) currently recognised over the 1,100m x 1000m target area, with individual zones having been traced up to 400m along strike with all currently open along strike and at depth.

A sample collected from the V2 zone returned 139.9 g/t Au and was associated with meter scale boulders of quartz veining and brecciation with strong iron-oxide staining and visible gold. Follow up sampling and initial RC drilling is being conducted in the area and the results will be released in due course.

Approximately 600m to the NW of the central Vertigo target, a sample collected from a new area returned 132.9 g/t Au from strong brecciated and sericite altered gneiss with vuggy quartz veining and strong iron oxides. The sample also returned >100 g/t silver and over limit assays of silver and other pathfinder elements are currently in progress. Follow up work is currently in progress to determine if this an extension of a known target or a new zone of mineralization.

Eight samples from approximately 100m east of the previously released RAB drilling results returned values ranging from 0.152 – 134.6 g/t Au, averaging 28.7 g/t Au, and one sample greater than 1,000 g/t silver and are associated with eastern projections of the V3 to V6 zones. The mineralized samples consist of stock work to lode style quartz veining, brecciation, and strongly sericite-clay altered felsic gneiss with abundant iron-oxide filled fractures and scorodite staining. Disseminated to massive (>50%) pyrite, arsenopyrite, galena, and locally visible gold mineralization is associated with the samples. Four of the samples also returned >1% Pb and/or >100 g/t Ag and over limit assays of pathfinder elements are in progress for these samples.

Significant results from the Vertigo target are detailed in the table below:

SampleTargetAu (g/t)

Suspicion Target Results
Significant results from the Suspicion target were encountered at the southern end of the target area, beyond the limits of historic soil sampling. Five rock grab samples collected over a 150m trend returned values from 0.761 – 41.8 g/t Au; averaging 15.7 g/t Au. The mineralization is association with elevated Ag, Bi, and Pb and is very similar to the Vertigo target.

Significant results from the Suspicion target are detailed in the table below:

Vertigo Target
The Vertigo target is located on the Company’s JP Ross property, approximately 75km south of Dawson City, Yukon and 25km north of its Golden Saddle deposit. The JP Ross property is road accessible from Dawson City and the Vertigo Target is within 2km of an existing road.

Mineralization on the Vertigo consists of brecciation, quartz veining, and strong sericite alteration with disseminated to vein-controlled pyrite, arsenopyrite, galena, bismuthinite and locally visible gold. At least 10 individual zones (V1 to V10) are currently recognised over a 1,100m x 1000m area, with individual zones having been traced up to 400m along strike and all are currently open along strike and at depth. The mineralized zones are associated with a series of W-NW trending, steeply dipping structures and splays associated with a regional-scale fault system that has been traced over 12km. Four additional target areas are currently recognised along this trend and follow-up geologic mapping and prospecting is ongoing.

Suspicion Target
The Suspicion target is located on the Company’s JP Ross property, approximately 4.1km to the SE of the Vertigo target. The unexplored target is associated with a gold in soil anomaly of up to 4263 ppb Au.

Based on geologic mapping conducted in the area, six NE trending structural zones associated with alteration and quartz veining are currently recognised. It is associated with strongly sericite altered felsic gneiss with stock work quartz veining, brecciation, strong iron oxide development, and, locally, visible gold. Geologic mapping and prospecting is ongoing in the area and the target will be tested with RC drilling.

JP Ross Property
The JP Ross property is comprised of 2,251 quartz claims covering over 46,000 hectares of exploration ground which currently has at least 14 known anomalous trends including the Vertigo and Suspicion, and numerous placer gold bearing creeks. The property is located 25km north of the Company’s flagship White Gold property which has a mineral resource of 960,970 ounces Indicated at 2.43 g/t gold and 262,220 ounces Inferred at 1.70 g/t gold and 55km north of the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. (TSX: G, NYSE:GG) with a M&I gold resource(2) of 4.1M oz. Historic exploration performed on the JP Ross property by Underworld Resources and Kinross Gold includes geochemical surveys, trenching, airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys, and 8,592m of diamond drilling over 64 holes. 14 target areas are currently known and large portions of the property are unexplored. Key areas identified as priorities in 2018 include the Vertigo, Rebecca and Sabotage Trends.  Historic work on the Vertigo target(1) produced trench results of 4.28 g/t Au over 5m within a broader sampling range of up to 1.05 g/t Au over 45m, and a historic drill hole which intersected 17.9 g/t Au over 1 m.

About White Gold Corp.
The Company owns a portfolio of approximately 20,000 quartz claims across 30 properties covering over 390,000 hectares representing approximately 40% of the Yukon’s White Gold District. The Company’s flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 960,970 ounces Indicated at 2.43 g/t gold and 262,220 ounces Inferred at 1.70 g/t gold as set forth in the technical report entitled “Independent Technical Report for the White Gold Project, Dawson Range, Yukon, Canada”, dated March 5, 2018, filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Company’s claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. with a M&I gold resource(2) of 4.1M oz and Western Copper and Gold Corporation’s Casino project which has P&P gold reserves(2) of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu.

The analytical work for the 2018 program has been performed by Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd., an internationally recognized analytical services provider, at its Vancouver, British Columbia laboratory.  Sample preparation was carried out at its Whitehorse, Yukon facility. All GT Probe, RAB, RC, and diamond core samples were prepared using procedure PRP70-250 (crush, split and pulverize 250 g to 200 mesh) and analyzed by method FA430 (30g fire assay with AAS finish) and AQ200 (0.5g, aqua regia digestion and ICP-MS analysis). Samples containing >10g/t Au were reanalyzed using method FA530 (30g Fire Assay with gravimetric finish). Metallic-screen analysis may also be utilized if coarse gold mineralization is encounter (FS600).
