Berkwood Reports its 3rd Drill Program Produced Continued High Grade Graphite Assays with 17.37% Cgr Over 130.55m

May 2, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the assay results from the Phase 3 drilling program on the Zone 1 Graphite Body at the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret South Project. A total of nine HQ diamond drill holes were drilled in the Phase 3 drill program with every hole intersecting visible Graphite (as per the news release dated April 26th, 2018). Of the nine holes drilled, eight of them intersected significant mineralization with one hole having 17.37% Cgr over 130.55m with a true thickness of 87.5m. As per the table below Graphite assay grades have been returned as high as 33.88%. This combined with BK1-15-17 from Phase 1 drilling of 72.10m at 13.64% Cgr and multiple other wide intersections indicates a large unique discovery.

Three separate drill programs have been executed on Berkwood’s  Zone 1 Graphite Body for a total of over 4,000m completed. All 27 holes have mineralization and 26 holes of these have intersected significant graphite. These intercepts support an evolving structural model of multiple recumbently folded horizon(s) hosting thicker and more consistent graphitic intervals of high grade and wide true thicknesses that suggests strong continuity in the system. On our airborne EM anomaly (see attached map), we have drilled an area about 300m by 300m, leaving an large anomalous area that is still as yet untested by drilling..

The inclined holes were drilled to maximum lengths of about 190 meters. The graphite lies near surface to open-pit mineable depths similar to the depths drilled by Mason Graphite for its planned open pit development.

Edward Lyons, PGeo (BC, QC, NL) states, “With the 130m intercept near surface and a length-weighted composite grade of 17.37% Cgr, the Phase 3 drill program represents a success. The importance of the thinner intersections is that they can mark the edges of thicker beds of graphite. Industry and metallurgical experience in highly metamorphic graphitic rocks has shown that the medium and lower graphite grade material can yield higher percentages of coarse flake graphite recovery, making these units potentially of similar economic value. The true widths and persistence of graphite in almost all of Berkwood’s drill holes to date show the potential of the Zone 1 anomaly.”

The discovery is eight kilometers southwest of Mason Graphite’s deposit, which has an NI 43-101 Feasibility Study. We share a similar structure with one of the highest grade graphite deposits in the world. Mason is concluding its permitting process to start development in 2018. This benefits Berkwood’s project as all the infrastructure is, or should be in place, once our neighbour goes into production.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO, notes that the increasing demand for graphite is reflected in part by the following:

  • Governments are mandating that automobile manufactures build and sell electric vehicles. This is good news for the EV industry and keeps the demand high for elements that go into batteries.  Graphite is commonly the most prolific element in a battery.
  • China is pushing for aggressive new ZEV mandate: 8% of new cars to be electric by the end 2018 and 12% by 2020.
  • France, Britain, Germany, Norway, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Korea and Spain have set official targets for electric car sales. The United States doesn’t have a federal policy, but at least eight states have set out goals. (California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Vermont and Washington)
  • A global shift away from fossil fuels is contributing to graphite’s success as it is acritical constituaent part of the expanding lithium-ion battery sector
  • With graphite as an integral material in the construction of everything from nuclear power plants to smartphones, the material’s viability as an investment has never been clearer.

 BK1-23-18 was drilled across the margin of the anomaly to test the limits of graphite mineralisation. No graphite was encountered. Deposit definition will require some tests of the margins in order for us to design a more efficiently drill program. This is typical exploration testing.

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three-hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area with very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high-grade graphite deposits in the world.

Including the Phase 3 campaign, the Company has drilled 27 holes on Zone 1 that totals 4,006m. The Company is pleased to announce it has intersected visual Graphite in every hole drilled to date, with significant Cgrr intercepts being observed in 26 holes. Success in these drill programs confirms that a significant component of the distinct electromagnetic conductors that occur over a two kilometer strike length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood news release dated February 10, 2015) includes graphite mineralization.

Berkwood Resources Announces Over 130.55 Meter Visual Graphite Intersection From Phase 3 Drilling

April 26th, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has intersected significant intersections of visual graphite during its phase 3 drill program, including one drill hole that has a 130.55-meter intersection with a 87.5 meter true thickness. The nine completed holes totalled 1,481.4 metres (m) of HQ core to objective depths. Eight of the nine holes contained significant graphite intervals as listed on the table below.

“I am very pleased to announce the successful completion of the third phase of drilling with all three phases combined totalling over 4000 metres now.  The Berkwood team is also pleased to announce that we have drilled a 130.55 metre intersection of graphite with a true thickness of 87.5 metres.  We are continuing to unravel the structural and geological disposition of the Lac Gueret South Zone 1 graphite body.  So we continue the exciting but painstaking work required as Berkwood endeavours to chart a focussed and efficient program to define the potential for an economically mineable resource. Field crews performed detailed structural logging and analysis of previous drill core – and we are increasing our structural capabilities through new collaboration with Terrane Geosciences. Once complete we will have a 3D model of our graphite body providing a clearer more detailed picture of the size and geometry of our Zone 1 graphite body.  We are making progress in stages, and continue with each successive Phase to build on the great results we have enjoyed since discovery,” states Tom Yingling, President and CEO. “Critically, the exploration potential for a significant graphite deposit has continued to be supported by the Phase 3 campaign”.

[Key:  LO-GR = 3 to 5% Cgr; MED-GR = 5 to 25% Cgr; HIG = +25% Cgr]

Edward Lyons, PGeo (BC, QC. NL) states, “The drilling in Phase 3 focused on expanding knowledge in and adjacent to the previously drilled areas. One outcome is increased recognition of intervals of lower grade graphite interlayered with high-grade material. Some relatively narrow true width intervals with lower grades may represent lateral extensions of thicker zones. Industry and metallurgical experience in highly metamorphic graphitic rocks has shown that the medium and lower graphite grade material can yield higher percentages of coarse flake graphite recovery, making these units potentially of similar economic value. The true widths and persistence of graphite in almost all of Berkwood’s drillholes to date show the potential of the Zone 1 anomaly. Planned geophysical studies ahead of Phase 4 will refine our geological and structural model to guide drill placement.”

BK1-23-18 was drilled across the margin of the anomaly to test the limits of graphite mineralisation. No graphite was encountered. Deposit definition will require some tests of the margins in order for us to design a more efficiently drill program. This is typical exploration testing.

Berkwood Completes Phase 3 Definition Drilling at Lac Gueret South, QC

March 16th, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its 9-hole Phase 3 definition drilling program on Zone 1 at the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret South Project (refer NR of March 5th). The Program was designed to constrain the southwestern and southern margins of mineralization, and to probe aspects of the structural (fold) model being developed for western Zone 1. Drilling continued to intersect substantial graphite (“Cgr”), with all nine holes hitting graphite and eight of the holes returning significant intercepts of Cgr.

So we begin the exciting but painstaking work required to unravel the structural and geological disposition of the Lac Gueret South Zone 1 graphite deposit, as Berkwood endeavours to chart a focussed and efficient program to define the potential for an economically mineable resource there. Field crews have been on site at Lac Gueret since early February to perform detailed structural logging and analysis of previous drill core – and we are increasing our structural capabilities through new collaboration with Terrane Geosciences. We are making progress in stages, and continue with each successive Phase to build on the great results we have enjoyed since discovery,” states Tom Yingling, President and CEO. “Critically, the exploration potential for a significant graphite deposit continues to be supported by the Phase 3 campaign”.

The 1,500m program continued to use oriented core techniques, and Tony Gilman of Terrane Geosciences was stationed at site at the start of Phase 3 to review structures in Phase 2 and 3 oriented core and to train the field team for detailed structural data collection. Terrane Geosciences will be merging these structural data with existing geology logs in preparation for Phase 4 work planning.

The continued testing of the western end of Zone 1 supports a model for the graphite horizons probably being folded at the western end of the geophysical anomaly. Several other examples of similar folding in the basement rocks that are observed within an 8-kilometer radius of the deposit show that arcuate fold patterns on the scale of the Zone 1 occurrence are common in the area. Further drill testing is required to continue to define the continuity and structural disposition of the mineralised intervals. In addition to drilling, and when snow conditions permit, the Company is considering an in-hole / intra-hole electromagnetic survey (mise a la masse, “MALM”) that charges specific graphite horizons which can then be traced between holes and on the surface.

Sampling: Some 258 sawn core samples from Phase 3 drilling are to be shipped to MS Analytical Laboratories in Langley, BC for treatment under the same analytical procedures applied to the samples from previous programs. Of the 258 samples, 201 were graphite-bearing rock; 47 were bracket (boundary) samples with very low to no observed graphite; and 10 were field-introduced QA/QC materials including duplicate and blank samples. No certified reference standards were inserted in the field. The laboratory routinely uses a variety of graphite and sulphide standards whose grades and matrix mineralogy are similar to the sampled materials. Each sample during both the crushing and pulverizing preparation phases will be subjected to quartz sand cleaning between samples to reduce any potential for cross-contamination. Assay results for Phase 3 samples are expected after the middle of April.

Ongoing mineral characterization: Berkwood has retained the services of Met-Solve Laboratories Inc. of Langley, British Columbia to initiate mineral processing tests on a suite of graphite mineral samples. This work is required for metallurgical testing for process design following the positive initial flake sizing results announced on March 8th, 2018, when the Company announced that  testing had revealed that a large portion of the graphite flakes in a representative suite of samples are coarse large flake (20 mesh to 100 mesh) and easily concentrated by simple inverse gravity process (the light portion being the valuable product), with only a small percentage of the graphite being finer than 100 mesh (100 mesh). First results should be available around mid-May, 2018.

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three-hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area with very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high-grade graphite deposits in the world.

Including the Phase 3 campaign, the Company has drilled 27 holes on Zone 1 that totals 4,006m.

Berkwood Announces Large Graphite Flake Charactization Results at Lac Gueret Project, Quebec

March 8 2018 / TheNewswire / VANCOUVER, B.C.   Berkwood Resources Ltd. (BKR) (wkn:A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce positive preliminary characterization results of graphite composite samples from its wholly owned Lac Gueret South property in northeastern Quebec.

Results show that a large portion of the graphite flakes are coarse large flake (20 mesh to 100 mesh) and easily concentrated by simple inverse gravity process (the light portion being the valuable product), with only a small percentage of the graphite being finer than 100 mesh (100 mesh); the latter might prove to be recoverable as a lower value product once more detailed studies are completed.

Table 1: Results of characterization work on six samples from Zone 1 highlighting the coarse graphite (“Cgr”) composition of each sample.

Composite Sample Summary A B C D E F
Head Grade Carbon as
Graphite (% Cgr)
33.8% 10.4% 32.2% 12.3% 36.6% 16.0%
Coarse Graphite Component
( > 100 mesh) (%)
22% 32% 20% 31% 34% 42%
Coarse Graphite Grade (% Cgr) 7.4% 3.3% 6.4% 3.8% 12.4% 6.7%

Met-Solve Laboratories Inc. of Langley, British Columbia was retained to carry out basic characterization tests on six composites derived from selected Phase 1 drill-program core samples bearing graphite recovered from Zone 1 at the Lac Gueret South property. This characterization work will be used to inform the further design of a proposed metallurgical program: this larger program will include sampled from all of the drilling undertaken through to the completion of the Phase 3 program presently in progress (refer NR of March 5th, 2018).

Figure 1. Graphite concentrate E with 12.4% Cgr at > 100 mesh from 36.6% Cgr head grade.

The six composites prepared from the drill holes cores, representative of the geology outlined through the completion of the earlier drill programs, featured graphite contents from a low of 10.4% Cgr to a high of 36.6% Cgr.

It is worth noting that the high-grade material of Composite E with 36.6% Cgr yielded a coarse large flake concentrate (20 mesh x 50 mesh) grading 93.5% C graphite.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, These positive results from initial characterization work show a large portion of coarse large flake within the sampled intervals of Zone 1 graphite intercepts. This demonstrates that the deposit has a significant component of coarse large  flake graphite, a higher value product. Further metallurgical testing will be needed to design an efficient graphite concentration process which will be critical to the project economics as we continue to develop this exciting opportunity. Further metallurgical studies will build on these initial results. Samples from Phase 2 and 3 drilling will be used.

Berkwood Resumes Resource Expansion And Definition Drilling At Lac Gueret South, QC

March 5th, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the immediate resumption of resource expansion and definition drilling on Zone 1 at the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret Project.

The Phase 3 program is currently underway and includes a planned 1,500m of drilling in nine HQ diamond drill holes to further test for strike continuity of mineralization along the target regional conductor, to improve our understanding of the orientation of the mineralized horizons, and to further define graphite mineralization at the Zone 1 Graphite Prospect.  The Company is focused on Zone 1 because all 18 holes drilled to date have returned significant graphite intervals.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “Field crews have been on site at Lac Gueret since early February and have been performing detailed structural logging and analysis of previous drill core. This was deemed a critical step to best define how we continue to build on the exciting results from our 2017 drill programs with this next phase of drilling on Zone 1.

The Company is engaged with certain work dedicated to characterization of features of the mineralization relevant to its suitability for entry to the global graphite market: initial findings will be made available to the public in the very near term.

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three-hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area with very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high-grade graphite deposits in the world.

During the recently completed 18-hole Phase 1 and 2 drill programs on Zone 1 that totalled 2,525m, the Company is pleased to announce it has intersected visual Graphite in every hole drilled to date. (See news releases of assay results dated December 17th, 2017 and February 15th, 2018.) Success in these drill programs confirms that a significant component of the distinct electromagnetic conductors that occur over a two kilometer strike length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood news release dated February 10, 2015) includes graphite mineralization.

Berkwood reports continued high grade Graphite assays with large true thickness intersections up to 71.1 m on the Phase 2 drill program on Zone 1 Graphite Body, and world class grades of up to 37.68% over 27.11m

February 21st, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BR2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the assay results from the Phase 2 drilling program on the Zone 1 Graphite Body at the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret South Project. Five HQ diamond drill holes were drilled in this program with every hole intersecting visible Graphite. Saw-cut samples of the drill core were sent for assay, and we are pleased to confirm high grade Graphite with average grades in the range of 13.64 to 21.86% Cgr and true thicknesses ranging from 20.9 to 71.1 m with shorter high grade interior graphite intervals.

Mr. Edward Lyons PGeo (BC, QC, NL) states “The Phase 2 drilling intersected thick intervals on two short lines of holes perpendicular across Section 3000E. These intercepts support an evolving structural model of multiple recumbently folded horizon(s) hosting thicker and more consistent graphitic intervals. Use of oriented core adds rigour to the interpretation. The Phase 3 drill program will continue to define and evaluate this geometry. The grades and true thickness suggests strong continuity in the system.”

The Zone 1 target is a conductive and magnetic system with a 2.2 km east-west strike length and 0.6 km width in plan view. It shows two parallel zones, which may reflect a large-scale fold. The Zone 1 drill program has intersected graphite in each of the 18 holes drilled to date on the western extent of the Zone. Preliminary metallurgical assessment is in progress.

Certificate of Analyses # YVR1800133 reports the analytical results for all samples taken in the five HQ diamond drill holes comprising Phase 2 drilling on Zone 1 Graphite Body. The holes were drilled from three sites with the drill holes oriented east and west across Section 3000E with inclinations of – 45° to -75°. The sites are located on a cut grid and are spaced about 70m apart. Significant results are described below:

True thickness was estimated based on foliation to core axis in oriented core and on the present structural interpretation

The drillholes were completed on two short sections crossing Section 3000E near sites 2 and 3 described in the news release of November 27, 2017. Several narrower intervals with graphite greater than 10% Cgr occur, but are not listed above. An updated map of drill hole locations by Phase of the Program is posted to the website at http://berkwoodresources.com/lac-gueret-extensions-graphite-project-quebec-canada/

Evaluation of the oriented core and on-site data collection procedures was supervised by Tony Gilman of Terrane Geosciences Inc supports the working model. The thicker intersections along Section 3000E geology suggest an asymmetrically east dipping and shallowly north-plunging synform that includes a relatively thick band (or bands) of graphite schist on the limbs with average grades as reported here and in the November 27, 2017 news release. There are few outcrops in the heavily forested area. The Company is exploring the possibility of testing the specific horizon by electromagnetic charging of the horizon in a borehole and mapping the traces of the unit on surface to constrain interpretations. This “mise a la masse” EM (MALM) technique successfully demonstrated that the two main Quinto/Mason’s Lac Gueret showings were connected during the Qualified Person’s work there in 2002. The west-dipping topography area along section 3000E has the potential to could keep the horizon closer to the present surface. The MALM survey will be better undertaken when the present snow cover is reduced.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “I am pleased we have succeeded in demonstrating significant graphite in large true thicknesses in our continuing exploration and evaluation program. Having had success in every one of the 18 holes drilled to date on Zone 1 is very exciting. On the basis of the announced results, we are proceeding immediately with Stage 3 of the Drill Program, and we are expediting preliminary metallurgical assessment. There is substantial as-yet untested strike length as defined geophysically at Zone 1. The field project continues to be managed by the same team that made Berkwood’s Zone 1 discovery.”

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three-hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area with very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high-grade graphite deposits in the world.

Success in this drill program confirms that a significant component of the distinct electromagnetic conductors that occur over a two kilometer length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined

by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood news release dated February 10, 2015) includes graphite.

Sampling & Analytical Procedures

Sample intervals were marked based on the presence of graphite-bearing lithology and significant visual changes in graphite appearance and range from 0.75 to 3.2 m in length. Most were between 1.1 to 2.2 m. Bracket samples to a maximum of 3.0 m length of unmineralised or very low grade (visually < 3% Cgr) mineralisation were taken to join groups of narrower graphite intersections for continuous data for future resource calculations. The samples were cut lengthwise with a diamond bladed rock saw perpendicular to the foliation. One half was placed in plastic bags with numbered tags and arranged in sequence of collection. The other half has been retained in core trays on site.

Field QA/QC materials consisted of granitic gneiss rock with no observable graphite and sulphide as blank material and quarter-cut drill core for duplicate samples. No standards or certified reference material (CRM) were used in the field. Visual inspection of blank material analyses showed the expected nil values for blank rock, which indicated no contamination from prior samples. Duplicate samples showed the close but not exact correlation with the original half-core samples as is typical of layered material. The laboratory includes five QA/QC materials, including blank material and Certified Reference Materials appropriate to the expected grade ranges in each batch of 35 client samples.

Sampling of sawn drill core was completed, weighed, and packed in rice bags under supervision by the QP, and was shipped from Baie-Comeau, QC by truck on pallets to MS Analytical Laboratories in Langley, BC. Comparisons of field weights, with the received sample weights taken at the laboratory, show a good correlation. The field weights are of use in packaging samples and estimating shipping weight.

Standard sample preparation included crushing and pulverising with silica sand “wash” prior to each sample at both stages on all samples to reduce contamination. The pulps of all samples were analyzed by MS Analytical’s SPM-140 method for graphitic carbon by ashing the sample followed by an acid digestion to eliminate carbonate and SPM-210 for total sulphur by oxidation in a LECO furnace. The standard SPM-140 analyses method of carbon as graphite (Cgr) is valid to a maximum grade of 50% Cgr. It can be increased to 100% graphite by changing oxygen flow parameters and rerun, however with our results, this has not proved necessary. Total Sulfur has no upper interference level. Density (core-in-water) measurements were done on every 10th sample in the batch. Rejects and pulps are presently stored at the MS Analytical warehouse for future metallurgical tests.

Discussion of Results

The analyses show that the thick unit on Section 3100E as well as shorter intervals showed a similar range of grades that occurs at Mason Graphite’s Lac Gueret deposit nearby. The cut-off grade used to define the intervals was the same 5% Cgr level used for Mason’s Lac Gueret resource and reserve estimations with a denser data set, published on SEDAR. One difference is that the highest grades found in one area at Lac Gueret, just over 60% Cgr, have not been matched here. Another is that the population of analyses around 5% Cgr constitute a small proportion of samples; the data are generally significantly higher or lower. Three levels of graphite concentration were codified in the field based on local estimations and follows the known data from Lac Gueret: graphite-bearing schist less than 5% (to 3%) Cgr as low grade; graphite schist with grades between 5% and 25% Cgr as medium grade; and high grade (HiG) material where the sample grades exceeded 25% Cgr and makes visual estimation is impossible in core.

He has worked extensively on the Lac Gueret Property, now owned by Mason, and neighbouring graphite properties since 2000.

Berkwood Plans UAV Drone Survey on Cobalt Ford Project

January 16th, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it is designing an exploration program on its wholly owned Cobalt Ford Property (the “Property”) located approximately 180 km northwest of Baie Comeau, Quebec.

The Company has conducted a preliminary review of historic exploration and is currently designing an exploration program that is considering a detailed unmanned aerial vehicle magnetometer survey (“UAV-MAGTM Survey”) offered by Pioneer Aerial Surveys Ltd, (“Pioneer”).  The innovative survey would be flown to modernise project baseline data and to identify high-priority targets for follow up ground testing.  The survey is expected to offer high quality data at reduced cost in comparison with conventional magnetics data collection.

Pioneer has extensive experience flying Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (“UAV”) based magnetometer and remote sensing surveys for the mining and exploration sector and has successfully flown over 12,000 line km in surveys across North America.

Global UAV Technologies Ltd. is a publicly traded company on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX:UAV) and wholly owns Pioneer.  Thomas Yingling, the President of the Company holds an option to purchase up to 1,500,000 common shares of UAV at $0.125.

About the Cobalt Ford Property:

The approximately 2,176 ha Cobalt ford property was historically explored for base metals targeting mafic and ultramafic rocks (pyroxenite, peridotite, amphibolites) and paragneisses.

Several geophysical surveys have been undertaken (1996, 2004 and 2006, airborne magnetics and radiometrics), along with some prospecting and mapping surveys. Outcrop mapping in 1971 detailed the exposed rock formations in the area, with further geological mapping in 1977, 1997, 2005 and 2006 has revealed the existence of multiple sulphide mineralization occurrences. Cobalt values of 904.3ppm and 1,480ppm have been returned from rock sampling.

A drilling program was carried out in 2006 by Quinto Technology Inc., which focused on the western half of the property. Drilling identified sulphide mineralization as disseminated and stringer occurrences in mafic (up to 3% sulphide) and ultramafic (peridotite, up to 1% sulphide) host rocks. Mafic rocks consist of gabbronorite with less than 0.5% visible disseminated sulphides and up to 3% in highly foliated zones.

The highest metal values in samples reported by Quinto Technology as a result of the drilling were 4.64% Ni, 2.37% Cu, 0.12% Co, 19ppb Pt, 110ppb Pd and 168ppb Au, over an undisclosed interval.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “2017 was an exceptional year for Berkwood and it’s shareholders.  Having hit Graphite in each of the 18 holes drilled on our Zone 1 Graphite body is very exciting and we plan on continuing to drill on the Zone 1 Graphite Body to determine tonnage and the geometry of the deposit.  I am excited to get started working on our Cobalt Ford property as well.  As we explore for advanced technology minerals like Cobalt, Graphite, Lithium and Vanadium, it is indeed elegant that we will be employing new drone technology that is entirely enabled by new high-tech batteries that themselves are enabled by the minerals we seek! ”

Berkwood Continues to drill Massive Graphite Intersections

December 21st, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first five drill holes on the Phase Two drill program on the Company’s Zone 1 Graphite body. Further to the news release dated December 8th, 2017 whereby the Company announced a massive Graphite intercept of over 70 meters in length and close to surface, the Company is very pleased to announce that it has been successful in not only continuing to drill large intersections of Graphite but that it has drilled one intercept of over 107 meters width.  All five of the holes drilled in the phase 2 drill program on the Company’s Zone 1 Graphite Body was successful in intersecting large intervals of graphite mineralisation.

Four HQ holes were drilled on an east-west line that crosses the area on Section 3100E around the initial holes BK1-03-17 and BK1-04-17, drilled on a northerly azimuth, and a fifth started another section to the north. The five holes totalled 719 m of HQ drilling.

The results of these five drill holes are as follows.

BK1-14-17 collared about 25 m east of the section line at 090° at -60°, as per the news release dated December 8th, 2017.  The oriented core used in Phase 2 indicated that the foliation dipped sub vertically and had an azimuth to the north-northwest.

BK1-15-17 collared about 10 m west of BK1-14-17 on the same site as BK1-14-17 with a 270° azimuth and inclined at -45° west to a length of 145.35 m. The major graphite interval started at 47.2 m and ended at 116.2 m The graphite zone was 69 m in core length and continuous with an estimated true width of 56 m. The last few runs intersected several narrower graphite intervals.

BK1-16-17 collared on a new site ~25 m west of BK1-15-17, just west of Section 3100E with an azimuth of 090° and inclination of -60° east with a length of 145.35 m again. It intersected continuous graphite of typical grade ranges from high-grade to medium and less low grades from18.3 to 125.4 m (107.1 m). The true width is about 61 m.

BK1-17-17 was sited east of BK1-16-17 to create a scissors intersection at the tops of the holes for geological overlap. It is oriented 270° azimuth and inclined at -45° west to a length of 186 m. It intersected a major graphite zone from 47.7 – 138.5 m (90.8 m) with a true width of 53.3 m. Several narrower graphite zones occur down to 162 m. The Attikamagen Formation, the basement formation below the graphite and iron formation stratigraphy, was intersected in the lowest 10 m; it projects just west of the geophysical anomaly.

BK1-18-17 started from a new east-west line about 85 m north of the first east-west section and is near the site of BK1-05-17 and BK1-06-17 in Phase 1. It is collared just east of Section 3100E with an azimuth of 090° and inclination of -550° east with a length of 124.67 m. One significant graphite zone of medium and high-grade types was intersected from 57.3 to 70.3 m (13.0 m). The rest of the hole was in the typical mixed lithology seen in all the adjacent holes around the graphite zone(s).

Summary:

The test of the western end of Zone 1 along east-west sections showed that the graphite horizons are probably folded around the western end of the geophysical anomaly. Several examples within eight kilometers show the arcuate fold pattern exists on the scale of the Zone 1 anomaly. Continued drill testing is needed to define the folds. As well, the Company is considering using in-hole electromagnetic surveys that specifically charge the graphite horizons and maps them between holes as well as on the surface. The existing access trails provide an initial reconnaissance grid for the surface work.  This Phase of the drill program completed five additional holes before shutting down for the holidays.  The drill, drill pads, and financing are all in place and drilling is ready to commence in the beginning of January 2018.

The Zone 1 Graphite Body is a very large conductive and magnetic system with a 2.2 km east-west strike length and 0.6 km width. It shows two parallel zones that may be a large-scale fold. A total of 18 drill holes have been drilled into the Zone 1 Graphite Body.  Assay results have confirmed not only high-grade graphite but also intersections of over 107 meters.

The Phase 2 drill program has already demonstrated some details in the Zone 1 graphite deposit geometry as well as continued strong, contiguous grades over significant continuous lengths.

The exploration potential for a significant graphite deposit has been supported by this Phase 2 campaign.

Sampling:

A total of 212 sawn core samples were taken from these first five holes of the Phase 2 drill program. All 212 of the samples were shipped to MS Analytical Laboratories in Langley, BC for the same analytical techniques used on the 383 Phase 1 samples. Results are expected back early 2018.

Lac Gueret South Property, Quebec

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area of very good infrastructure. The Project directly borders Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project to the South.

Berkwood Drills Massive Graphite Intercept on Zone 1, at Lac Gueret South

December 8th, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first hole of the Phase 2 drill program on Berkwood’s Zone 1 Graphite Body.    Management is very pleased to report that the Company has drilled a massive Graphite intercept of over 70 meters in length and close to surface.  Berkwood’s Phase 2 drill program on the Zone 1 Graphite Body was targeted based on the Phase 1 drill program’s successful results whereby the Company demonstrated average Graphite grades in the range of 14.39 to 25.52% Cgr and true thicknesses ranging 22.1 to 40.3 m. (see the news release dated November 28th, 2017 )  This Phase 2 drill program is designed to delineate the size and geometry of this Graphite body

The Zone 1 Graphite Body is a very large conductive and magnetic system with a 2.2 km east-west strike length and 0.6 km width. It shows two parallel zones that may be a large-scale fold. The Phase 1 drill program on Berkwood’s Zone 1 Graphite Body focused on only a small western portion of the geophysical anomaly. The Company was waiting for the Phase One drill program assay results to determine if a Phase 2 drill program would commence on the Zone 1 Graphite Body, as well as determine the best location to commence the Phase 2 drill program. Significant exploration risk has been mitigated with the assays on the Phase 1 drill program. That, and the fact that most of the anomaly has not been drill tested, increases Zone 1 as a priority area.

Phase 2 drilling started on Berkwood’s Zone 1 Graphite Body, with BK1-14-17 on 4 December 2017. The planned series of holes are located around Section 3100E, which had the best graphite intersections in the Phase 1 program.  The Phase 2 drill program has started with a series of eight drill holes planned across the previous north trend to delimit the structures and use a core orientation system to define the actual foliation strikes and dips. These will be completed by December 19th, 2017.

The first hole was successful in intersecting a key zone found in the Phase 1 drilling. The hole was sited about 40 m east of Site #2 where holes BK1-03-17 and BK1-04-17 drilled to the north intersected significant graphite intervals as previously reported with analyses. BK1-14-17 was drilled to the east with a -60° inclination and reached 109.7 m length. The TruCore alignment system showed the foliation was subvertical to steep east-dipping and had azimuths between 340° to 010° with most close to 360°. The geology summary with graphite and sulphide visual estimates is 19.4 – 50.5 m (31.1 m)     Graphite quartz schist, with graphite visual estimates range from 20% to 30%+ Cgr (“carbon as graphite”) and a variety of graphite textures and medium flakiness.

50.5 – 80.2 m (29.7 m)       High-grade graphite with 25+% Cgr..
80.2 – 90.9 m (10.7 m)       Graphite-quartz-biotite schist; Gr 20% to 25% Cgr in fine to coarse flakes.

The combined graphite interval of 60.8 m core length is 51 m true width, based on foliation attitudes is about 27.6 m, similar to true widths previously drilled.

Samples are being saw-cut and will be sent to MS Analytical Laboratories in Langley, BC., at the end of the Phase 2 drill program, as were the Phase 1 samples.

DDH BK1-15-17, on the same site, is oriented at 270° azimuth and -45° inclination to test the orientation and grade of graphite intervals in the two holes on Site #2. Eight holes are planned for a total of about 850 m before the Christmas shutdown.  Drilling is planned to recommence in early January 2018.

The new program has already demonstrated some details in the Zone 1 graphite deposit geometry as well as continued strong, contiguous grades over significant continuous lengths.

Berkwood to do follow up drilling on large true thickness, high grade Graphite Zone 1, Lac Gueret South Graphite Project

November 30th, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has moved the drill from its Zone 2 anomaly back to Berkwood’s Zone 1 Graphite Body where the Company has successfully demonstrated average Graphite grades in the range of 14.39 to 25.52% Cgr and true thicknesses ranging 22.1 to 40.3 m. The drill program on Zone 2 was stopped as no significant graphite was intersected and in order to focus the Company’s efforts on the Zone 1 deposit at this time.

Zone 1 Graphite Body on the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret South Project had 13 HQ holes drilled in the Phase 1 program with every hole intersecting significant graphite intersections. Mineralised sections of the core were sent for assay and, as per the news release dated Nov 28th, 2017, returned contiguous intervals of high grade graphite. The Zone 1 Graphite Body is a very large conductive and magnetic system with a 2.2 km east-west strike length and 0.6 km width. It shows two parallel zones that may be a large-scale fold. The Phase 1 drill program on Berkwood’s Zone 1 Graphite Body focused on only a small western portion of the geophysical anomaly. The Company was waiting for the Phase One drill program assay results to determine if a Phase 2 drill program would commence on the Zone 1 Graphite Body. Significant exploration risk has been mitigated with the assays on the Phase 1 drill program. That, and the fact that most of the anomaly has not been drill tested, increases Zone 1 as a priority area. The Phase 2 drill program is commencing on Zone 1 and will continue to test this Graphite discovery. This drill program is fully permitted with the access roads and drill pads already built. The entire drill program is fully financed. The Company estimates to complete up to 2000 metres of drilling for the Phase 2 drill program.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “I am very pleased with the assay results we received from Berkwood’s Zone 1 Graphite Body. Prior to receiving the Zone 1 Graphite Body assay results, numerous elements of risk still pertained to our graphite discovery. There are always risks in exploration. Now that we have successfully proven that we have large intercepts with good graphite grades, we have mitigated some of them, and the Company looks forward to having the drill successfully delineate the size of this Graphite body to determine tonnage and geometry. I am thrilled with our shareholder and financing support, and with our capital structure – we still only have approximately 32.5 million shares outstanding.”

Mr. Edward Lyons PGeo (BC, QC, NL), who has worked extensively on the Lac Gueret Property, now owned by Mason Graphite, states “The analyses show that the thick unit on Section 3100E as well as shorter intervals showed a similar range of grades that occurs at Mason Graphite’s Lac Gueret deposit nearby.”

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area of very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high grade graphite deposits in the world.

Berkwood reports high grade Graphite assays with large true thickness intersections up to 40.3 m on Zone 1 at Lac Gueret South Graphite Project

November 28th, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the assay results from the drill program on the Zone 1 geophysical prospect at the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret South Project. Thirteen holes were drilled in the first Phase drill program with every hole intersecting visible Graphite. Sections of the drill core were sent for assay and we are pleased to confirm High grade Graphite with average grades in the range of 14.39 to 25.52% Cgr and true thicknesses ranging 22.1 to 40.3 m.

Mr. Edward Lyons PGeo (BC, QC, NL) has worked extensively on the Lac Gueret Property, now owned by Mason, states “The analyses show that the thick unit on Section 3100E as well as shorter intervals showed a similar range of grades that occurs at Mason Graphite’s Lac Gueret deposit nearby.”

The Zone 1 target is a conductive and magnetic system with a 2.2 km east-west strike length and 0.6 km width. It shows two parallel zones which may be a large-scale fold. The Zone 1 drill program intersected graphite in each of the 13 holes drilled on the west end of the Zone, and with which initial metallurgical assessment is in progress.

Certificates of Analyses # YVR1710850 and # YVR1717850A contain analytical results for all samples taken in the 13 HQ diamond drill holes on Zone 1. Nine sites contained the 13 drill holes oriented north with inclinations varying from -45° to -75° on a cut grid. The sites were spaced about 70-100 m apart on north-south sections which were spaced about 100-m apart. Significant results are described below:

True thickness was estimated based on foliation to core axis and the initial interpretation

The drillholes were completed on western three Sections 3100E through 3300E. Other narrower intervals with graphite greater than 10% Cgr occur, particularly on sections 3200E and 3300E, but are not listed above.

The initial interpretation of Section 3100E geology suggests an asymmetrically dipping and moderately plunging antiform to the west that includes a relatively thick band of graphite schist with average grades in the range of 14.39 to 25.52% Cgr and true thicknesses ranging 22.1 to 40.3 m in the lower parts of BK1-01-17 and BK1-04-17 and the upper parts of BK1-03-17 and BK1-05-17. There are thinner units both above and below this horizon. How these relate to the sections 3200E and 3300E to the east is under review. It is possible that the thicker graphite schist horizon may subcrop between 3100E and 3200E; there is sparse outcrop in the heavily forested area. The possibility of testing the specific horizon by electromagnetic charging the horizon in a borehole and mapping the traces of the unit on surface can constrain interpretations. This “mise a la masse” EM technique successfully demonstrated the two main Quinto/Mason’s Lac Gueret showings were connected. The area west of section 3100E has west-dipping topography that potentially could keep the horizon closer to the present surface.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “I am pleased we have succeeded in demonstrating significant graphite in large true thicknesses early in our initial exploration program. Having had success in every one of the 13 holes drilled to date on Zone 1 is very exciting. Drilling on Zone 2, reported on 21 November 2017, will assist the Company in prioritizing the most compelling prospect for potential development. Our fall drill program is fully financed, and the field project is managed by the same team that discovered Berkwood’s Zone 1 discovery and the Mason Graphite deposit. I am thrilled with our shareholder and financing support, and with our capital structure – we still only have approximately 32.5 million shares outstanding.”

The Company has extended road access and trails to develop the initial group of targets at Zone 1, and drill pads have been prepared for the further planned drill program to test the targeted PhiSpy conductive anomalies.

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area of very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high grade graphite deposits in the world.

Success in this drill program confirms that a significant component of the distinct electromagnetic conductors that occur over a two kilometer length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood news release dated February 10, 2015) includes graphite.

Sampling & Analytical Procedures

Sample intervals were marked based on the presence of graphite-bearing lithology and significant visual changes in graphite appearance and range from 0.88 to 3.2 m in length. Most were between 1.1 to 2.2 m. Bracket samples to a maximum of 3.0 m length of unmineralised or very low grade ( < 3% Cgr) mineralisation were taken to join groups of narrower graphite intersections for continuous data for future calculations. The samples were cut lengthwise with rock saw perpendicular to the foliation. One half was placed in plastic bags with numbered tags and arranged in sequence of collection. The other half was retained in core trays on site.

Field QA/QC materials consisted of granitic gneiss rock with nil graphite and sulphide as blank material and quarter-cut drill core for duplicate samples. No standards or certified reference material (CRM) were used in the field. Visual inspection of blank material analyses showed the expected nil values for blank rock, which indicated no contamination from prior samples. Duplicate samples showed the close but not exact correlation with the original half-core samples as is typical of layered material. The laboratory includes five QA/QC materials in each batch of 35 client samples.

Sampling of sawn drill core was completed, weighed, and packed in rice bags under supervision by the QP, and was shipped from Baie-Comeau, QC by truck on pallets to MS Analytical Laboratories in Langley, BC.

Standard sample preparation included crushing and pulverising with silica sand “wash” prior to each sample at both stages on all samples to reduce contamination. The pulps of all samples were analyzed by MS Analytical’s SPM-140 method for graphitic carbon by ashing the sample followed by an acid digestion to eliminate carbonate and SPM-210 for total sulphur by oxidation in a LECO furnace. SPM-140 analyses carbon as graphite (Cgr) to a maximum grade of 50% Cgr, while Total Sulfur has no upper interference level. ICP-MS analyses were run on two longer series of graphite samples from the thickest intervals to test for potential deleterious elements; nothing exceptional was found. Rejects and pulps are presently stored at the MS Analytical warehouse for future metallurgical tests.

Discussion of Results

The analyses show that the thick unit on Section 3100E as well as shorter intervals showed a similar range of grades that occurs at Mason Graphite’s Lac Gueret deposit nearby. The cut-off grade used to define the intervals was the same 5% Cgr level used for Mason’s Lac Gueret resource and reserve estimations with a denser data set, published on SEDAR. One difference is that the highest grades found in one area at Lac Gueret, just over 60% Cgr, were not matched here. Another is that the population of analyses around 5% Cgr constitute a small proportion of samples; the data are generally significantly higher or lower. Three levels of graphite concentration were codified in the field based on local observations as well as known data from Lac Gueret: graphite-bearing schist less than 5% (to 3%) Cgr as low grade; graphite schist with grades between 5% and 25% Cgr as medium grade; and high grade (HiG) material where the sample grades exceeded 25% Cgr and makes visual estimation is impossible in core.

Comparison between South Lac Gueret and Lac Gueret deposits

The comparison between Berkwood’s Zone 1 and Lac Gueret, now owned by Mason Graphite, is that in the early stages of exploration by Quinto Mining, abundant outcrop on burned and logged areas was identified on the initial site visit by the QP. Minor stripping and clearing of the shallow overburden exposed extensive graphite zones with good quality mapping and intense surface sampling prior to drilling. The works by Quinto and Mason are documented in various technical reports posted on SEDAR between 2001 and 2015. Berkwood’s property, which is at the initial stages of exploration, is forested making the development of equivalent exposures difficult. Thus, it faces more work to expose the same showings.

New Property Acquisition

Berkwood is pleased to announce that it has expanded its Lac Gueret Extensions project (Northern blocks). Owing to the success of its Phase 1 drill program and the success of Phase 1 drill program assays the Company decided to immediately acquire additional claims.

Berkwood has acquired a further fifty three (53) claims in its Lac Gueret Extensions project (Northern block) region, to extend the previously held 19,884 ha (hectares) covered by 368 claims to a new total of 22,739.46 ha covered by 421 claims. Berkwood is acquiring The Turkey Lake Property by payment to 1131348 BC Ltd of 630,000 common shares and $15,000. Berkwood will own 100% of the property with no royalties attached. The transaction remains subject to TSX-V approval.

Berkwood Commences New drill program on Zone 2 at Lac Gueret South Graphite Project

November 22nd, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling on the Zone 2 geophysical prospect at the Company’s 100% owned Lac Gueret South Project. The Zone 2 target is an extensive (greater than 2 km strike length) conductive system that displays a number of geophysical similarities with the Zone 1 prospect that is located approximately 3.5 km SSE of Zone 2, where the company discovered extensive graphite mineralization earlier this year. The Zone 1 drill program featured intersections of graphite in each of the 13 holes drilled. The initial metallurgical assessment is in progress.

The fall drill program at Zone 2 is located adjacent to the Berkwood / Mason Claim boundary, and has not previously been drill tested. The Company intends to assess whether Zone 2 has the potential to host commercial graphite, and will consider the results of this fall program in developing its drilling and metallurgical test work priorities.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “I am pleased we have embarked upon our second drill program. Having had success in every one of the 13 holes drilled to date on Zone 1 is very exciting. We are still awaiting assay results on these holes, and we expect to release these within a few weeks. The drill rig is established on Zone 2. The geophysics on Zone 2 is comparable with that of Zone 1, which we now know includes graphite (although other conductive and magnetic phases, such as pyrrhotite, were also intersected in drilling). The location of the Zone 2 prospect along the Berkwood Mason property boundary is also compelling. Drilling a second, entirely distinct target provides Berkwood shareholders two potential opportunities for success as the Company will seek to prioritize the most compelling prospect for ongoing assessment of potential for development. Our fall drill program is fully financed, and the field project is managed by the same team that discovered Berkwood’s Zone 1 discovery and the Mason Graphite deposit. I am thrilled with our shareholder and financing support, and with our capital structure – we still only have approx. 32.5 million shares outstanding.”

The Company has completed road access and trails for the initial group of targets at Zone 2, and drill pads have been prepared for the initial suite of targeted PhiSpy conductive anomalies, located in the Zone 2 area. The Company anticipates completing up to 18 inclined drill holes (of between 60m and 120m in length) in this initial phase of work on Zone 2.

Lac Gueret South Zone 1

During the recently completed 13-hole drill program on Zone 1 the Company is pleased to announce intersecting visual Graphite in every hole drilled to date. (See news release dated October 17th, 2017.) Success in this drill program confirms that a significant component of the distinct electromagnetic conductors that occur over a two (2) kilometer length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood news release dated February 10, 2015) include graphite.

Lac Gueret South Zone 2

Zone 2 is located approximately 3.5 kilometres NNW of Zone 1 and is contiguous with the southern limit of the Mason Graphite claim boundary: the anomaly presents as possibly occurring along strike from graphitic horizons defined by Mason Graphite. A total of two airborne VLF-EM and 15 PhiSpy ground geophysical anomalies indicate the occurrence of two parallel east-west trending conductors. The larger conductor extends over two kilometer in length and up to 60 meters in width. These Zone 2 anomalies were identified by the same airborne and ground surveys as the Zone 1 anomaly: Zone 1 is now drill-tested to include significant graphite mineral development.

He has worked extensively on the Lac Gueret Property, now owned by Mason, and neighbouring graphite properties since 2000. The Cgr analyses are carried out and certified by MS Analytical Inc. of Langley, British Columbia using a LECO furnace and an infrared detector.

Lac Gueret South Property, Quebec

Lac Gueret South is located in Côte Nord, Quebec, a three hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area of very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite’s (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest high grade graphite deposits in the world.

In 2014, Berkwood conducted an electromagnetic (“EM”) airborne geophysical survey over its South Lac Gueret Property and successfully identified several anomalous zones of high conductivity. Several of these anomalies were downgraded as they are considered too small or too deep to represent economic graphite deposits. However, the Zone 1 and Zone 2 anomalies are of significantly larger size and were considered high priority targets. Thirteen holes drilled into Zone 1 confirmed the extensive development of graphite mineralization, confirming the targeting thesis. Drilling is now starting on Zone 2.

These technologies are dependent upon the ethical mining and supply of naturally occurring elements and minerals that enhance the performance of energy storage systems and permit the development and miniaturization of new electronics and structural components for the new suite of innovative tools.
