Triton’s Ancuabe May Host High-grade, Large-flake Graphite Deposit

- October 31st, 2013

Triton Minerals Ltd. (ASX:TON) announced laboratory results from reconnaissance rock chip samples acquired during its initial mapping program on licenses 5380 and 5336 at the Ancuabe project, noting that one sample shows high-grade graphite with up to 9.43-percent graphitic carbon.

Triton Minerals Ltd. (ASX:TON) announced laboratory results from reconnaissance rock chip samples acquired during its initial mapping program on licenses 5380 and 5336 at the Ancuabe project, noting that one sample shows high-grade graphite with up to 9.43-percent graphitic carbon.

As quoted in the press release:

The laboratory results from the four rock chip sample collected returned a medium and high grade graphite result, including sample TMA0024 obtaining 9.43% graphitic carbon.

The samples were obtained from two separate areas that are over 9km apart on Licenses 5380 and 5336 on the Ancuabe project. Further reconnaissance geological mapping is planned to follow up these graphitic exposures.

Brad Boyle, managing director at Triton, commented:

Triton has completed initial geological mapping of the Ancuabe project whilst the Company’s current focus is on the Balama North project. However, these rock chip results are significant, showing high grades of graphitic mineralisation, with grades of up to 9.43% graphite carbon and very large graphite flake sizes up to 4mm in length confirmed by petrographic analyses.

These results continue to support Triton’s initial interpretation that the Anucabe project is highly prospective for graphite as the Company looks to undertake further mapping and sampling on the project.
