February 28, 2013 / Calgary, Alberta / ACCESSWIRE / Graphite One Resources Inc. (GPH: TSX-V, GPHOF: OTCQX) ("Graphite One" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed the National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 Technical Report which documents an increase of the existing inferred resource by 68 per cent ("%") to 284.71 Million Tonnes ("Mt") of 4.5% Graphitic Carbon ("Cg"), and by 41% to 37.68Mt of 9.2% Cg at cut-offs of 2% Cg and 7% Cg, respectively (see Table below). The resource is comprised from drilling along 4.8 km of continuous near surface high-grade graphite mineralization.

Highlights:

  • - Largest known, high grade, large flake Graphite Deposit in the United States and North America.

    - This new and expanded inferred resource is comprised of 2012 and 2013 drilling by Graphite One and represents a 68% increase of the estimated in situ graphite from the previous 2012 maiden resource.

    - High-grade graphite mineralization is at surface and extends from surface to depths of over 200m.

    - The 2013 drilling program further confirmed excellent continuity of near surface, high grade graphite within a simple and accessible geological setting and doubled the strike length of current mineralization at the Graphite Creek Deposit to 4.8 km's.

    - The resource area (4.8km) only represents drilling along 27% of an 18km long electro-magnetic conductor.

    - The Deposit remains open along strike to both the east and west, and down dip. Every hole continues to be mineralized from top to bottom.

a: The tonnage and in situ graphite have been rounded off to the nearest thousand, and therefore may not tally due to rounding.

b: This inferred resource recommends using a 3.0 % Cg cut-off. The base case cut-off grade of 3% Cg is based on a conservative approach of resource recovery of 80 to 95% Graphite concentrate with average selling price of $1200 /tonne.

c: Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no guarantee that all or any part of the mineral resource will be converted into a mineral reserve.

"Based on the size of the resource, flake content and potential, we believe this to be the largest reported Flake Graphite Deposit in North America, and look to continue our aggressive approach in 2014 to advancing the project towards production" stated Anthony Huston, President & CEO of Graphite One.

The Technical Report was prepared by Steve Nicholls, BASc, MAIG and Roy Eccles, M.Sc., P.Geol. of APEX Geoscience Ltd., both of whom are independent Qualified Persons under National Instrument 43-101, using the most current Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum ("CIM") Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines. Dean Besserer, P.Geol., Vice President of Exploration for the Company and a "Qualified Person" under NI 43-101, is responsible for and has reviewed and approved the technical content of this press release.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.

This release includes certain statements that may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts that address access to capital, regulatory approvals, exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects, are forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, continuity of mineralization, uncertainties related to the ability to obtain necessary permits, licenses and title and delays due to third party opposition, changes in government policies regarding mining and natural resource exploration and exploitation, and continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on this forward-looking information, which is given as of the date it is expressed in this press release, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking information, except as required by applicable securities laws. For more information on the Company, investors should review the Company's continuous disclosure filings that are available at www.sedar.com.

The mineral resource estimates reported in this press release were prepared in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") applies different standards in the classification of mineralization. In particular, while the terms "measured," "indicated" and "inferred" mineral resources are required pursuant to NI 43-101, the SEC does not recognize such terms. Canadian standards differ significantly from the requirements of the SEC. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories constitute or will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, "inferred" mineral resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian securities laws, issuers must not make any disclosure of results of an economic analysis that includes inferred mineral resources, except in rare cases.
