(TSX:VLC) ("the Company") announces that, further to its news release of April 16, 2012, the Company has agreed to an amendment of the option it obtained to acquire 100% of three historic Quebec graphite properties situated in southwestern Quebec in the Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville Geologic Province.

Company's next financing, but no later than 90 days after the Acceptance Date.

The Company has agreed to an amendment to the option whereby, in addition to the other conditions outlined above, in order to maintain and exercise the option the Company must (i) pay $25,000 cash and issue 500,000 Shares to the Optionor on or before the earlier of (A) the Acceptance Date and (B) October 30, 2012 and (ii) pay $150,000 to the Optionor upon the earlier of (A) the completion of an equity financing by the Optionee and (B) October 30, 2012.
