The securities have been issued with the required hold period of four months plus one day.
The company added that it recently drilled 16 diamond core holes for 2,078 meters at the Lac Gueret South project in Quebec. That brings the total drilling at Zone 1 to 5,940 meters over 43 drill holes.
The project is directly south of the Lac Gueret project operated by Mason Graphite Inc (CVE:LLG) (OTCMKTS:MGPHF).
