Torch River Resources Ltd. (TSXV:TCR) announced the results from the initial grab sampling program at its Walker property, located about 100 kilometers from Montreal, noting that they confirm the presence of high-quality lump-vein graphite mineralization.

Isabelle Robillard, P. Geo. and qualified person, commented:

Graphite occurrence was observed during recent fieldwork (2013-06-21) from an ancient shallow exploitation pit on an easily accessible part of the property. The old pit and adjacent waste rocks pile exposed at least two sets of intersecting graphite veins, with thickness ranging from 2 to 10 cm. Vein material was sampled and sent to Actlabs in Ancaster. The laboratory returned the graphite assay value (89.5% Cg) that is reported here. One of the veins was followed at surface for at least 6 meters along strike and many small mine pits and trenches were found in the immediate area, indicating the presence of more graphite mineralization.

Paul Ogilvie, CEO of Torch, commented:

We are very pleased with the grade of 89.5% Cg as is in line with lump graphite properties in Sri Lanka. The results are very encouraging as we work towards building a 100% lump graphite company. Our next steps will be to analyse the purity and upgrade the material to the highest purity possible, toward the 99.9 % Cg goal.
