Saint Jean Carbon Commences Summer Mining Claims Work Programs

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 15, 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 the company has started its summer mining claims work programs to be carried out over all of the Company's south western Quebec graphite mining claims, including our newly acquired Bell property. The work program will include; beep-mapping, multiple sampling points, drilling and flying over the claims to search and locate strong and wide graphite mineralization.

Paul Ogilvie, CEO, commented: "We are pleased to get back on to our properties to continue working toward and better understanding the characteristics of the graphite and associated minerals throughout our vast holding of prospective exploration properties. Our material is performing very well in lithium batteries, (as previously announced in April 7, 2016 press release). Our goal now is to demonstrate that we can reproduce the same results with a much larger sample and blended material from about 95 different areas. It is important to duplicate the success we have previously had so we can then scale these processes".

Christian Derosier, PGeo, PhD., who is the qualified person (QP) acting on behalf of Saint Jean Carbon has reviewed and approved the information in this news release, and commented: "We look forward to completing this work. This is the first step in a four step process that will lead us in the future to determine our mineral resources. We hope to discover new zones that could increase the economic potential. The first, of the four work programs should be completed within four weeks."

The company also would like to announce that it has entered into agreements for various other graphite property claims that should be announced by June 30th.
