Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (TSXV:RCK,FWB:RJIA) reported the first set of assay results from the drill program announced in December, 2012. This planned 4,600 metre drill program focuses on electromagnetic conductors “A” and “C” – identified on the Plumbago area of the property during geophysical surveys in September, 2012. Highlights include drilling 23.03 metres at 3.95% graphite.
As quoted in the press release:
Highlights of these assay results include:
- Drill hole PB-12-14 intersected 59.48 metres of graphitic carbon (“Cg”) at various depths with grades ranging from 1.52% Cg to 14.61% Cg, including 13.59 metres at 2.08% Cg, 9.18 metres at 4.78% Cg, 3.59 metres at 9.54% Cg and 2.91 metres at 3.71% Cg, and;

Rock Tech Vice President of Exploration and Interim CEO Afzaal Pirzada said:
We are very pleased with the successful completion of additional step-out and in-fill drilling at our Lochaber graphite property. Since October 2012, the Company has completed over 7,000 metres of drilling which will form the basis of a maiden NI 43-101 resource estimate. The graphite zones of the Plumbago mine area begin at the surface and have thus far been traced to a depth of over 150 metres.
"Did you know graphite is as tough as diamonds, but its unique structure makes it light, soft, and highly resistant to heat as well?"
