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:

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."

Daniel Greenspan, Macquarie Capital Markets (2/11/15)
"Mason Graphite Inc. announced that it has initiated a study on the large-scale processing of value-added graphite products. . .these include micronization, purification, spheronization and coating and would have diverse applications in electrochemical, technical and specialized areas. . .while still blue sky at this stage, the ability to create products to move downstream as close to the end-user as possible has good potential to further improve the already-strong margins forecast for the project, which would further enhance the economics at Lac Gueìret. . .and creating a wider range of products should open the company up to a more diverse customer base."

Daniel Greenspan, Macquarie Capital Markets (2/5/15)
"We are encouraged that the results from Mason Graphite Inc.'s feasibility study for its 100%-owned Lac Guéret graphite project remain on track for Q2/15. . .we maintain our Outperform rating and $1.50 target price. The remainder of the year holds some important milestones for the company, ultimately leading to the start of construction in 2016."

David Talbot, Dundee Capital Markets (12/15/14)
"Mason Graphite Inc. is well funded and has an extensive following. Its 100% owned Lac Guéret project is high grade with strong recoveries. Its experienced management is actively working towards the completion of its definitive feasibility study (Q2/15), with expected construction in 2016 should financing be in place."

Charlotte McLeod, Resource Investing News (12/15/14)
"A year after it increased the Measured and Indicated mineral resource for its Quebec-based Lac Gueret project by a whopping 658%, Mason Graphite Inc. is back with another update. This time, the company has upped the project's Measured and Indicated mineral resource by a more modest 31%. It now sits at 65.7M tonnes grading 17.2% Cg at a 5-percent cut-off grade, up from 50 million tonnes grading 15.6% Cg, including a high-grade resource of 9.7M tonnes grading 31.2% Cg at a cutoff grade of 25%."
