Canada Carbon Inc. holds a 100% interest in three strategic graphite properties located in Quebec, including 2 past producing graphite mines, the Miller and the Asbury mines.

The Miller hydrothermal lump-vein historical graphite mine and surrounding property cover approximately 100 square kilometres and is located 80 km west of Montreal in the Grenville Township. The Miller mine is a past graphite and mica producer which was worked since 1845. The Miller was likely the first graphite operation in Canada. Main roads connect up to 800 meters away from the deposit and travel all around the property. A power line also crosses the property 500 m south of the deposit, and a bush road goes directly to the deposit, which allows for very easy access. Many old forestry roads are also present over the property which allows the creation of new access routes with very low impact on the environment.

The Asbury open-pit mine and mill were in operation from 1980 to 1989 and are located north of the Ottawa-Gatineau area.

The Dun Raven historic graphite deposit is easily accessible a few hours west of Montreal, in Thorne Township.

The Company plans to continue focusing on exploration at its Miller property with exploration on the Dun Raven and Asbury properties to follow. They believe that the Company management team and technical consultants have the experience in management, exploration, mining, milling and producing graphite which will create real shareholder value.
