CEO, Vance White and Exploration Manager, Wayne Holmstead had us out to the Buckingham Graphite property to highlight the opportunity it presents the company. Graphite of this quality will be in high demand as several auto manufacturers have publicly stated they will shift to EV’s by 2030. Furthermore, the Quebec government is already taking steps to ensure that Quebec is a leader in Battery metals, manufacturing and clean energy.

About The Buckingham Graphite Project

The Buckingham graphite property is located in the Outaouais area of the Grenville Subprovince of Quebec. It consists of 30 claims (1803 hectares) and contains 3 separate graphite occurrences. The main occurrence (McGuire) was worked by Stratmin Inc. in 1985-86 when a ground electromagnetic survey was done following a regional airborne survey. Three diamond drill holes were completed to intersect the electromagnetic anomalies, 2 of which intersected graphite mineralization which was found to be hosted by marble and gneissic rocks.

Although the nature of the graphite on the Buckingham Property has not been determined, graphite concurrences in this area are normally coarse grained, flake graphite. This type of graphite is the most desirable of the naturally occurring types that is used to produce lithium-based batteries. Lithium-based batteries are required for a variety of ‘green’ technologies, including electric vehicles. The global demand for these types of products is expected to rise as world governments lean towards environmentally friendly products rather than petroleum-based ones.

The second graphite occurrence (Cummings) is described as a “deposit in the form of narrow bands of graphite occurring in gneiss and marble over a length of 300 m and a width of 30 m. The graphite occurs in several irregular bands within the 30 m zone.” The Cummings Occurrence is located about 1.5 km southeast of the McGuire Occurrence.

The third graphite showing on the property is called the Robidoux Occurrence and is located about 4 km east of the McGuire Occurrence. It was described by the Quebec Superintendent of Mines in a 1910 report as a “partially uncovered graphitic bed over a length of about forty feet. Some shallow pits have also exposed graphitic outcrops, presumably of the same bed, for an additional distance of 75 to 100 feet. The bed where exposed by the main stripping is about four feet thick and dips into the side of a low hill at an angle of 40 to 50 degrees.” It was also noted that “the graphite ore contains over 30% carbon.”
