Mason Graphite Inc.

Mason Graphite Inc. is a Canadian mining company focused on the exploration and development of its 100%-owned Lac Guéret graphite project, located in northeastern Québec. The graphite grade on this property is among the highest in the world and the company intends to transition the project to production by the end of 2015. The Lac Guéret property currently hosts an NI-43-101-compliant mineral resource based only on 17% of the known mineralized zone. Excellent potential exists for mineral growth. A preliminary economic assessment study features 22 years of production at 27.4% Cg and a pre-tax internal rate of return of 33.7% (see June 6, 2013, news release). The Mason Graphite management team possesses over five decades of experience in graphite production, sales and R&D and is well suited to deliver value to all its stakeholders.

Expert Comments:

"Mason Graphite Inc. is nicely funded. It has an extensive following and investments in three well-known Québec-based institutions. It owns 100% of the Lac Guéret project in Québec, which is among the highest-grade projects in the world. Early metallurgical work demonstrates about 90% of recovery there. The deposit is 100% flake, which is the required product for end users looking to use graphite for lithium-ion batteries and other high-tech applications. The project is about 80 km from an all-weather road, and 290 km north of Baie-Comeau, a port city in Québec. Mason's management has extensive knowledge of the market and numerous relationships with buyers. While Mason's is not the most advanced project in the graphite space, of the three companies that we cover, we view it as having the best chance of being financed." read more >

"From a fundraising perspective, Mason Graphite Inc., with its Lac Gueret project in Quebec, has been active in a very tough market. I was in Vancouver in February, and the consensus was that we could be in the worst slump of all time, certainly if it continues for another 18 months. To raise money for a niche mineral in this environment is an achievement." read more >

"Mason Graphite Inc. is well funded and with an extensive following, with investment from three well known Quebec-based institutions. The Lac Guéret project hosts high-grade Cg with good recoveries. Experienced management is working towards the completion of its DFS (Q2/15). . .we believe Mason may have amongst the best chance of being financed into production by 2016."

Ben Kramer-Miller, Seeking Alpha (2/16/15)
Mason Graphite's Lac Gueret Project appears to have strong economics. . .the company's recent press release holds the answer to the industry's woes and sets Mason apart from the pack as the industry's one full-fledged graphite business. . .while Mason is 'behind' right now, I believe its approach will pay off in the long run, and Mason will come out ahead as the leader in the space."

Rupert Merer, National Bank Financial (2/11/15)
"Recently, Mason Graphite Inc. announced a detailed study for large-scale production of value-add products that could materially increase margin estimates. . .other graphite firms have made samples of high-margin materials, but we do not know of any other formal work on process design today. . .with the recently announced changes to operating cost and capital cost assumptions and with improving resource estimates, the company's competitive position as a potentially low cost supplier has strengthened. Mason could see further upside to its project economics with a plan for production of higher-margin specialty products."
