OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 14, 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 preliminary results from the helicopter-borne magnetic and TDEM surveys flown over the Walker Graphite property in the Buckingham area in Quebec received by Prospectair Geoservices. The survey covered 168 linear kilometres of lines, which were flown at 100 m line spacing with orthogonal tie lines at 1000 m spacing. Lines were oriented WNW-E SE and were perpendicular to the stratigraphy.
For the technical description of the equipment, please consult the precedent press release dated July 11th 2016. The airborne magnetic survey delineated two strong magnetic axes and several weaker formational anomalies where one corresponds with the old Walker Mine. Those magnetic axes need to be verified and qualified on the ground. The Time- Domain Electromagnetic Survey picked up a very wide conductive zone covering the Lievre River and its flat banks. This strong and wide anomaly corresponds to layers of marine clays deposited by the Champlain Sea. However, two magnetic anomalies coinciding with two NE oriented conductive anomalies are found and may represent isolated outcropping bedrock surrounded by clay.
Christian Derosier PGeo., PhD., commented: "There is a very good conductive anomaly coinciding with the old Walker mine. This anomaly is about 500 m long and is oriented NNE, parallel to the magnetic axes. About 300 m more to the West, a string of weaker conductive layers have the same NNE direction than Walker and were picked up by the different flight lines over a distance of 1400 m. Those conductive layers also have a magnetic coincidence. All those anomalies need to be verified by ground surveys and prospecting before testing by trenching and diamond drilling."
Paul Ogilvie, CEO, commented: "We are very pleased with the results obtained and we are planning to start the field work within two weeks. All samples will be collected over an area with 90 possible pit locations. The material will be tested then blended and will be used to make a batch of spherical shaped, carbon coated graphite in various sizes for the test manufacturing of a lithium-ion battery."
