The Sale of the Company’s Lochaber Project

Further to the news release of February 22, 2018 to announce the term sheet to sell the Lochaber Graphite Deposit, located in the Buckingham Region of Quebec, to Saint Jean Carbon Inc. (“SJC” TSX-V: SJL), the Company indicated that shareholder approval was required for the definitive sale agreement of the Lochaber Property.  Upon further analysis and discussion with the Company’s legal counsel, Fogler Rubinoff LLP, it was determined that such shareholder approval was not required under subsection 184(3) of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and proceeded with the sale of Lochaber in that manner.  The Company announced conditional approval of the Lochaber transaction on July 5, 2018 and closed the transaction on July 19, 2018.  As previously announced on May 16, 2018, the adoption of our business plan from the conventional junior mining approach to focus instead on upgrading graphite and distributing that material, coupled with the sale of Lochaber will constitute a change of business (Proposed “COB” ) for the Company within the meaning of the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the TSXV Policy 5.2).  The Company will hold a shareholder meeting to approve this change of business.  Additional information with respect to the proposed COB and legal analysis regarding the Lochaber sale will be provided in the management information circular to be prepared and delivered to shareholders in connection with the Meeting. The Meeting date has not been determined but will be communicated once it has been scheduled.
