Focus Graphite Inc. (TSXV:FMS,OTCQX:FCSMF,FWB:FKC) announced results from the fall 2012 exploration drilling program on the Lac Knife Property. To test the strike-length extension of the Lac Knife graphite deposit up to 375 m to the South of the deposit’s West limb, 12 NQ-sized core holes were drilled and were spread over 4 drill fences spaced 100 m apart. The best graphitic carbon was from Hole LK-12-170, drilled 175 m south of the deposit.
As quoted in the press release:
Hole LK-12-170 drilled 175 m south of the deposit on Line 900 S returned the best graphitic carbon (Cgr) intersection (Table 1):
• Hole LK-12-170: 66.8 m grading 14.68 % Cgr (from 54.9 to 121.7 m), including:
◦ 8.0 m grading 21.73% Cgr (from 54.9 to 62.9 m),
◦ 21.7 m grading 17.99% Cgr (from 70.0 to 91.7 m) and
◦ 21.3 m grading 18.22 % Cgr (from 100.4 to 121.7 m)
Focus Graphite President and CEO Gary Economo said
Once again Lac Knife confirms its status and potential as a world-class and valuable, high-grade graphite property. The new drill results indicate a significant strike length extension south of our main deposit as well as in the continuity and thickness of grade – those key elements required for building additional tonnage.
