Saint Jean Carbon closes previously announced Whabouchi Lithium Mining Claims and amends Quartz agreement

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 28, 2016) - Saint Jean Carbon Inc. ("Saint Jean" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SJL), a carbon science company engaged in the exploration of natural graphite properties and related carbon products, is pleased to announce that the Company has received TSX.V approval and has closed the transaction for the additional 27 lithium claims in South Wabouchi which was news released on September 30, 2016. The claims are contiguous with the Whabouchi Lithium Project the Company acquired in August 2016. These claims are located in the James Bay region of Quebec and lie approximately 45 kilometres southeast of the village of Nemaska. The Property is comprised of one large block of 27 mineral claims covering 1,458 hectares (14.5 km2) located on the southern margin of the volcano-sedimentary Mountain Lake belt. The Property neighbours to the north Hinterland Metals Inc. (C:HMI news, June 22, 2016) and Durango Resources to the south. The Property is located approximately 15 kilometres southeast of Nemaska Lithium Inc.'s Whabouchi hard-rock (spodumene) lithium project. The terms of the purchase of the 27 mineral licenses required a one-time issuance of 1,000,000 common shares of the capital stock of the Company to the vendors.

The Company has also amended the terms for the non binding and non-arm's length agreement to acquire the past producing Glen Almond quartz mine in Quebec which was announced November 26, 2015. The amended agreement calls for a one-time issuance of 500,000 shares in the capital stock of the Company at closing. This is down from the 1,500,000 shares and $10,000 announced previously.
