About the Santa Cruz Graphite Project

Company management was attracted to Santa Cruz due to its advanced-stage status as a pre-production graphite project, backed up by a positive NI43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment that supports the need for further studies to evaluate and advance the project’s potential.  The Company has filed a copy of the PEA for Santa Cruz with the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) and will file the PEA on Sedar within 45 days of this news release.

On behalf of the Board,

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

Cautionary Note: The PEA is considered by STS to meet the requirements of a Preliminary Economic Assessment as defined by Canadian Securities Administrators‘ National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. The economic analysis contained in the technical report is based, in part, on Inferred Resources (as defined in NI 43-101) and is preliminary in nature. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves 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. Inferred Resources are considered too geologically speculative to have mining and economic considerations applied to them and to be categorized as Mineral Reserves (as defined in NI 43-101). Additional trenching and/or drilling will be required to convert Inferred Mineral Resources to Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that the reserve’s development, production and economic forecasts on which the PEA is based will be realized.
