Graphite

Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (FSE: ONG) (XSTU:ONG) (the "Company" or "Northern") is pleased to provide shareholders and investors with a summary and analysis of a number of important developments with respect to the critical minerals industry in the Province of Ontario. The Company believes that its Bissett Creek graphite deposit is the most advanced critical minerals development project in Ontario and accordingly, that it is well positioned to benefit. Graphite is the largest component in a lithium ion battery ("LiB") and supply is currently dominated by China.

In mid March, the Ontario government announced the launch of a Critical Minerals Strategy, setting a five year roadmap to establish the province as a reliable global supplier of responsibly sourced critical minerals. The six pillars of the strategy include "growing domestic processing and creating resilient local supply chains" as well as "investing in critical minerals innovation, research and development." This strategy seeks to leverage Ontario's wealth of raw materials, close proximity to manufacturing plants and markets, and green hydroelectric power to facilitate the production of products with high ESG standards and low carbon footprints. These competitive advantages will enable the province to play a significant role in the development of a North American supply chain that isn't dependant on raw materials from China.

On March 23 Stellantis and LG Energy Solution announced they will establish Canada's first ever large scale production lithium-ion battery plant in Windsor, Ontario, investing over $5 billion dollars in the joint venture. The new Windsor plant will require approximately 60,000 tonnes per year ("tpy") of natural graphite to reach its projected production capacity of 45 gigawatt hours ("GWH") per year.

This news followed the announcement on March 16 that Honda will invest $1.4 billion to upgrade its Alliston, Ontario plant, with the 2023 Honda CR-V hybrid among the first models to be built. Honda plans to sell only zero emission vehicles in North America by 2040 and it will upgrade its other plants over the next 20 years.

LG Energy Solution recently announced two new projects in Michigan, just across the US border from Ontario. It is investing $1.7 billion to expand its LiB cell plant in Holland, Michigan and has a third joint venture with GM to build a $2.5 billion cell plant in the City of Lansing and Delta County, Michigan. Combined with the investment in Ontario, LG will have a collective LiB production capacity of 200 GWH in North America, requiring 250,000 tpy of graphite.

Bissett Creek is the nearest graphite deposit to these megafactories which provides the Company with a unique opportunity to deliver a secure, local, responsibly sourced supply of graphite. Testing has indicated that graphite from Bissett Creek is very well suited for the manufacture of high capacity, durable, long life lithium ion batteries. Bissett Creek is projected to produce 20,000 tonnes of graphite per year in phase 1 of development and has the resources to increase production to approximately 100,000 tpy as demand grows. Canada's graphite production in 2020 was estimated to be only 10,000 tonnes.

"The move towards a green economy has been called a once in a lifetime opportunity and jurisdictions around the world are competing for the investment that is required and the jobs that will be created," said Northern Graphite CEO, Greg Bowes. "Financial support from the Ontario government has been critical to attracting these EV and battery manufacturing plants to the province and it is essential that investment also flows into the mineral projects needed to supply them," he added.

About the Bissett Creek Project

An independent study has rated Bissett Creek the highest margin graphite project in the world, including existing producing mines. This is due to its very high percentage of valuable large flake graphite, simple metallurgy and favorable location which provides ready access to equipment, supplies, labor, grid power, natural gas and markets.

The Bissett Creek deposit is located in the southern part of Canada between the cities of North Bay and Ottawa and 15 kms from the Trans Canada Highway. A full Feasibility Study has been completed for the construction of a graphite mine producing 20,000 tpy of concentrate. Measured and indicated resources are sufficient to support a much higher rate of production and the Company is re-evaluating its development plans in light of the substantial growth in EV/battery markets. The results of this process are expected to be announced in the coming months.

About Northern Graphite

Northern Graphite is a Canadian company, listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"), that is focussed on becoming a world leader in producing natural graphite and upgrading it into high value products critical to the green economy including anode material for LiBs/EVs, fuel cells and graphene, as well as advanced industrial technologies.

Northern recently announced it had entered into binding purchase agreements to acquire the natural graphite division of Imerys SA (the "Transaction"). This includes the producing Lac des Iles graphite mine in Quebec and the Okanjande graphite deposit/Okorusu processing plant in Namibia. Closing of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including final approval of the TSX-V and completion of $60 million in related financings. Completion of the Transaction will result in Northern becoming the only North American and the world's third largest non-Chinese graphite producing company with 50,000 tpy of capacity. In addition, Bissett Creek and Okanjande are two large scale development projects that have the combined potential to produce over 200,000 tpy of high quality flake graphite. Both are located close to infrastructure in politically stable jurisdictions and will enable the Company to significantly expand future production to meet rapidly growing demand from EV and battery markets.

Northern Lights

Overview

Northern Lights Resources Corp. (CSE:NLR) is a growth-oriented exploration and development company with promising projects in Nevada and Arizona.

In Arizona, Northern Lights Resources owns 100 percent of the Secret Pass gold project. Secret Pass is located 15 kilometers north of the historic Oatman gold mining district in northwest Arizona that produced 2 million ounces of gold between 1892 and 1940 at an average gold grade of over 15 g/t.

Over the last several years, the area has been rediscovered with several gold exploration and production projects active. Producing gold projects in the area include the Northern Vertex Corp.’s (TSXV:NEE) Moss mine, which is an open-pit heap leach operation, as well as the Gold Roads underground mine operated by Aura Minerals (TSX:ORA).

The Tin Cup mine at Secret Pass operated from the early 1900s to approximately 1930.

Exploration drilling completed at Tin Cup from 1984 to 1991 by Santa Fe Gold and other companies intersected high-grade gold mineralization from near-surface to a depth of approximately 180 meters. The average depth of the 145 historic holes completed on the Secret Pass property was 95 meters. Assay results from the historic drilling at Tin Cup ranged up to 40 g/t Au.

Prior to ownership by Northern Lights, exploration on the Secret Pass Gold Project was limited to the Tin Cup and FM zones that represent only 10 percent of the total project area. Ninety percent of the claim area has never been explored by modern methods and technology. There are over 20 historic workings that have been identified on the Secret Pass claim area.

Exploration work completed by Northern Lights during 2020 has identified significant potential for high-grade gold mineralization at the Tin Cup and FM zones plus the newly identified Fiery Squid zone as well as 20 additional targets based on field work and aeromagnetic and IP geophysical survey results.

The Secret Pass Gold Project is a promising gold exploration property with no production royalty NSR allowing NLR shareholders potentially significant exploration upside.

Northern Lights Resources’ second strategic property is the Medicine Springs silver, lead and zinc project located in Elko County in North Eastern Nevada.

The Medicine Springs project comprises 149 unpatented Federal mineral claims covering 1,189 hectares located in the Ruby Mountains Valley just off the famous Carlin Trend. The Medicine Springs project has the potential to host a large scale high grade silver-zinc-lead Carbonate Replacement Deposit (CRD) deposit.

On October 5, 2020, Northern Lights announced a Option and Joint Venture Agreement with Reyna Silver Corp. (TSXV:RSLV) on the Medicine Springs silver project.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Reyna Silver can earn up to 80 percent equity in the Medicine Springs Project by completing minimum exploration expenditures of US$2.4 million plus other commitments and paying a cash payment of US$1 million to Northern Lights by no later than December 31, 2023. Northern Lights has a free carry (with no future repayment) until Reyna Silver has spent US$4 million on exploration on the project.

Dr. Peter Megaw, Technical Advisor to Reyna Silver, commented: “Medicine Springs ticks the most important boxes we look for in CRD exploration including location on a large regional structure that hosts significant CRDs, situated at the top or a thick section of potentially favorable carbonate host rocks and evidence of high silver grades. Some of the dump and rock chip samples run well over our 400 g/t (12 oz/t) silver threshold and it is quite likely that similar grades were diluted by the Reverse Circulation drilling used historically in the district. We will be drilling core to get a true picture of the clearly structurally-controlled mineralization as we trace it towards its source.”

Northern Lights Resources’ management team and insiders, currently own a 30 percent stake in the company. Led by an experienced board with strong capital markets and project development expertise. Northern Lights Resources is well financed, no debt and will shortly be drilling on both properties.

Company Highlights

  • Successfully closed a non-brokered private placement of $2.1 million in September 2020
  • Debt free with over $1.5 million of cash to progress exploration on Secret Pass
  • Both projects are situated in mining-friendly jurisdictions in the US.
  • Both projects are drill ready.
  • Signed Option/Joint Venture agreement with Reyna Silver to acquire up to 80 percent of the Medicine Springs property, allowing Northern Lights Resources to focus on Secret Pass and future possible property acquisitions
  • Potential for high-grade silver and large scale CRD silver zinc lead deposit at Medicine Springs.
  • Significant exploration upside potential with drilling to begin on Secret Pass
  • Strong, experienced management team and board.

Key Projects

Secret Pass Gold Project

In July 2019, Northern Lights Resources acquired the 868 hectare Secret Pass gold project in Mohave County, northwestern Arizona. The project is located 13 kilometers south of the Oatman-Katherine gold district. Established in 1863, the district is Arizona’s third-largest gold-producing area. It is reported that the region produced over two million ounces of gold and one million ounces of silver between 1870 and 1940 at an average grade of over 15 g/t Au.

Over the last several years the area has been rediscovered with several gold exploration and production projects active. Producing gold projects in the area include Northern Vertex Corp.’s Moss mine, which is an open-pit heap leach operation, as well as the Gold Roads underground mine operated by Aura Minerals.

Mining records indicate that there were over 20 historic mine workings on the property.

Exploration drilling completed at Tin Cup from 1984 to 1991 by Santa Fe Gold and other companies intersected high-grade gold mineralization from near-surface to a depth of approximately 180 meters. The average depth of the 145 historic holes completed on the Secret Pass property was 95 meters. Assay results from the historic drilling at Tin Cup ranged up to 40 g/t Au.

There was no exploration work completed on the property between 1991 and 2019 when Northern Lights purchased 100 percent interest in the Secret Pass Project.

During 2020, Northern Lights has completed significant geological fieldwork on Secret Pass including:

  • Airborne drone photogrammetry mapping survey (completed May/Sept 2020)
  • Airborne drone magnetic survey and interpretation (completed Sept 2020)
  • Geological mapping and stream sediment and panned concentrate sampling (Sept/October 2020)
  • Reinterpretation of historical IP survey data
  • A detailed review of historical geological work and GIS digitization and orientation of historic data

Exploration work completed by Northern Lights during 2020 has identified significant potential for high-grade gold mineralization at the Tin Cup and FM zones plus the newly identified Fiery Squid zone as well as 20 additional targets based on field work and aeromagnetic and IP geophysical survey results.

Work completed by Northern Lights indicates that historic drilling has only tested the upper part of the potential epithermal gold zone at the Tin Cup and FM prospects.

Secret Pass Geological Model

Northern Lights has announced an initial 1,600 metre drill program at Secret Pass to be completed in 2020.

Northern Lights Resources Medicine Springs project

Overview

Comprised of 149 unpatented mineral claims and totaling 1,206 hectares in Elko, Nevada, the Medicine Springs project is focused on targeting the property’s silver-lead-zinc deposits. Northern Lights Resources holds an option to acquire a 100 percent interest in the project over a six year term. Between 1910 and 1956, the project produced 160 tonnes of lead, 800 kilograms of zinc and 500 kilograms of silver from its mine shafts and shallow surface digging.

Exploration

Since acquiring the Medicine Springs Project in 2017, Northern Lights has completed exploration work including detailed geological mapping, rock sampling, an analysis of historic geophysical survey data (CSAMT and IP), a review of historic exploration drilling, an aeromagnetic survey and an Ionic Leach soil geochemistry survey.

The historic 125 shallow Reverse Circulation drill holes on the Medicine Springs Project encountered partially oxidized silver-zinc-lead mineralization at depths of up to 180 meters intersecting silver grades of up to 225 g/t. An extensive rock sampling program was completed in 2018 with a total of 66 samples collected in conjunction with surface mapping. Of the 66 samples collected, 27 samples assayed greater than 20 g/t silver and there were 17 samples with silver assays exceeding 100 g/t and a maximum value of 559 g/t. The Ionic Leach soil geochemistry survey completed in 2019 defined a strong coherent NE trending silver-zinc-lead anomaly which measures more than 2,000 meters in length and ranges up to 500 meters in width.

The results of the exploration work completed by Northern Lights at the Medicine Springs Project highlight the potential for significant silver-zinc-lead mineralization including the potential for high-grade CRD style mineralization.

On October 5, 2020 Northern Lights announced an Option and Joint Venture Agreement with Reyna Silver Corp.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Reyna Silver can earn up to 80 percent equity in the Medicine Springs Project by completing minimum exploration expenditures of US$2.4 million plus other commitments and paying a cash payment of US$1 million to Northern Lights by no later than December 31, 2023. Northern Lights has a free carry (with no future repayment) until Reyna Silver as spent US$4 million on exploration on the project.

Northern Lights has an initial approved exploration drill program of approximately 4,900 meters in place for the Medicine Springs Project. Reyna Silver intends to start work on the property immediately with a focus on evaluation and the start of exploration core drilling.

Dr. Peter Megaw, Technical Advisor to Reyna Silver, commented, “Medicine Springs ticks the most important boxes we look for in CRD exploration including location on a large regional structure that hosts significant CRDs, situated at the top or a thick section of potentially favorable carbonate host rocks and evidence of high silver grades. Some of the dump and rock chip samples run well over our 400 g/t (12 oz/t) silver threshold and it is quite likely that similar grades were diluted by the Reverse Circulation drilling used historically in the district. We will be drilling core to get a true picture of the clearly structurally-controlled mineralization as we trace it towards its source.”

“The geological and geochemical characteristics of the Medicine Springs mineralization strongly suggest a distal carbonate replacement setting related to a concealed molybdenum porphyry system. The geochemical signature and style of mineralization observed at Medicine is similar to other carbonate-hosted, silver-rich base metal veins, CRD and skarns deposits developed peripheral or above copper-molybdenum porphyry stocks,” said Northern Lights Resources Head Geologist Gary Artmont.

Medicine Springs CRD Geological Model

In 2019, soil geochemistry survey and rock sampling identified a large silver zinc lead anomaly in a previously unexplored area of the Medicine Springs claims. The prospective zone of mineralization is up to 1,800 meters in length and up to 550 meters wide. Surface samples showed silver grades of over 400 g/t in multiple samples. This area will be tested by a drill program in 2020/21.
