Rockcliff Metals Corporation reported they have identified on its Penex Property near Snow Lake a series of electromagnetic conductive anomalies that intersected graphite. The Property also hosts a continuation of the historical Pen Zinc Deposit.
Rockcliff President Ken Lapierre states the Penex Property has significant upside potential for VMS mineralization, that is copper, gold, zinc, silver and now for graphite mineralization. He explains they have reviewed the drill log results from a single hole drilled in 1975 that tested for VMS mineralization and discovered it contained a 67 meters thick intersection of 75 percent plus near solid graphite within 15 meters of surface. He adds this year they look forward to advancing their knowledge of the graphite potential as well as determining the extent of the Pen Zinc deposit on this property.
Graphite remains the dominant material used in lithium batteries.
