Canada Carbon holds 100% interest in five graphite properties: The Asbury, Miller, Walker, Dun Raven and Maria. The Asbury Mine is located north of the Ottawa-Gatineau area. The open pit mine and mill were in operation from 1980 to 1989 where a total of less than 70,000 tons were processed. The Miller mine is located northeast of Ottawa in Grenville Township. This mine was worked around 1845 and was probably the first graphite operation in Canada. It is reported that 25 cars of lump graphite were shipped from this deposit in the 1900s.
The Walker Mine is a past producer with about 816 tons of graphite extracted from the mine between 1876 and 1920. The mine is located northwest of Buckingham, in Buckingham Township. The Dun Raven graphite deposit is easily accessible a few hours west of Montreal, in Thorne Township. The Maria Graphite Project is located in Maria Township, south of the community of Bissett Creek on the Trans Canada Highway between the cities of Ottawa and North Bay, Ontario. These claims surround and are contiguous to Northern Graphite''s Bissett Creek graphite deposit. Northern Graphite recently reported the extraction of very large high purity flake graphite consistent across the entire resource with overall recovery rates of 97%. (NGC.V News Release 23/04/2012).
