Berkwood Drill Program intersects Graphite at Lac Gueret South


August 22, 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 two holes and collared a third on its Lac Gueret South Graphite Project located in Quebec. The Company is pleased to confirm that the initial two holes have intersected visual graphite at depths consistent with conductive units detected using electromagnetic (“EM”) geophysical techniques. These techniques were applied by the Company to develop its initial group of targets, and drill pads have been prepared for the initial suite of targeted PhiSpy conductive anomalies, located in the Zone 1 area (refer location descriptions below). The initial holes and their visually logged intercepts are important as they justify continued prosecution of the planned program. The Company anticipates completing up to 14 further inclined drill holes (of between 60m and 120m in length) in this initial phase of work.

The drill program started at Site #1 with DDH BK1-01-17 inclined at -45° on azimuth 358°. The 2nd hole on the same site, BK1-02-17, was inclined at -70°. These initial holes were located on the southern margin of the SW extent of a large airborne and ground EM and magnetic anomalous area in order to confirm the modelled dip direction of the large structure and to test for the presence of graphite. The dip on section appears to be about 70° to the south, confirming the geophysical model in this part of Zone 1. The drilling intersected visually identifiable graphite over intercepts at 40.2m – 45.3m (3.1m) and between 99.48 and 137.77m (38.29m) in BK1-01-17; and over intercepts from 43.6 – 46.3 (2.7m) and from 63.1 – 73.0 (9.9m) in BK1-02-17. These intercepts are as drilled intercepts, and do not represent true widths. The reader is cautioned that visual recognition of graphite does not equate to grades of significance.

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. With a market capitalisation of over $200 million Mason owns one of the largest high grade graphite deposits in the world, and is planning on building a new graphite mine and processing plant.

In 2014, Berkwood conducted an airborne EM geophysical survey over its Lac Gueret Property and successfully identified several anomalous zones f high conductivity. The Zone 1 and Zone 2 anomalies are the largest and are therefore considered high priority targets for immediate exploration by drilling and trenching. These conductive areas are almost entirely covered by muskeg and till with limited bedrock outcrops on the property.

Lac Gueret South’s Zone 1

Two distinct electromagnetic conductors appear to occur over a two kilometer length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood’s news release dated February 10, 2015). The pattern suggests a closed syncline or anticline that could repeat favourable stratigraphy. The western part of this zone was further defined by ground VLF and EM surveys: four VLF and 22 contiguous PhiSpy EM conductors have been detected over an apparent 800 meters length and up to a 300 meters width. This western area is interpreted as a potential bulk graphite zone interlayered within the inge of a complex foldsystem. The limbs thin to 50 meters in width as the Zone extends eastward.

A total of 11 rock grab samples were collected in the vicinity of the Zone 1 anomaly: three of these samples contained 36.3%, 14.4%, and 1.04% Cgr (Carbon as Graphite) respectively. The presence of significant values of Carbon as Graphite found in the vicinity of these mainly covered large geophysical anomalies is interpreted to indicate that the anomalies are probably large graphite zones.

Lac Gueret South’s Zone 2

Zone 2 lies immediately south of the Mason Graphite claim boundary and long strike from the graphite zones of Mason Graphite. A total of two LF-EM and 15 PhiSpy ground geophysical anomalies confirm the occurrence of two parallel east-west conductors. The larger conductor extends 1 kilometer in length and 60 meters in width.

The program is being undertaken subject to two current drilling permits issued by regulators in Quebec.

Edward Lyons P.Geo. (BC, QC, NL) is a Qualified Person under the definition of Canadian National Instrument #43- 101, and has read and approved the technical information in this news release. The Cgr analyses were carried out and certified by AGAT Laboratories of Mississauga, Ontario using a LECO furnace and an infrared detector.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “I am pleased to provide early confirmation that we have intersected graphite in the initial holes in our program. This confirms the effectiveness of our targeting methods and justifies further exploration of the extensive and very compelling conductive zone, in a district in which the world class Mason graphite deposit is now in development. We caution investors that visual confirmation of graphite should not be treated as equivalent to assay data: however, the observed intercepts fully justify continuation of the planned program.”

About the Company: Berkwood is engaged in exploration for the commodities that enable the modern revolution in essential technologies. These technologies are dependent upon materials that enhance the performance of energy storage systems and permit the development and miniaturization of new electronics and structural components in the new suite of innovative tools. The Company is led by a team with collectively over 100 years experience and have been involved with numerous discoveries of producing mines.

Berkwood Commences Drill Program at Lac Gueret South Graphite Project

August 16th, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) (“Berkwood” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on its Lac Gueret South Graphite Project located in Quebec. The Company has completed certain access development for its initial group of targets, and drill pads have been prepared for the initial suite of targeted PhiSpy conductive anomalies, located in the Zone 1 area (refer location descriptions below). The Company anticipates completing up to 18 inclined drill holes (of between 60m and 120m in length) in this initial phase of work. The amended exploration permit approval to start drilling on 16 August has been received. A drill is on site ready to commence on that date. The amended permit allows for a multiphase exploration program without delays at each stage.

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 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 are considered high priority targets for immediate exploration by drilling and trenching. These large anomalous conducive areas are almost entirely covered by muskeg and till with few bedrock outcrops available property-wide.

Berkwood Resources Ltd. acquires Delbreuil Lithium Project, Abitibi District, QC

July 11th, 2017, Vancouver, British Columbia: Berkwood Resources Ltd. (“Berkwood”, or “Company”) is pleased to announce it has acquired from 1124026 B.C. Ltd a package of 53 claims located over a lithium rich zone of the Abitibi area, east of Simon Lake, Quebec, which the company has named the Delbreuil Lithium Project (the “Project”).  The property is easily accessible by main and secondary roads, and is located in a region characterized by other know occurrences of lithium (Li).

The Delbreuil Project acquisition transaction comprises payment to 1124026 B.C. Ltd of 2,100,000 common shares and $15,000.  The transaction remains subject to TSX-V approval.

The acquired claims have similar geology to other known lithium showings in the immediate area: the known occurrences on the Project property and on the other known occurrences comprise pegmatites that host spodumene.  The Project claims were previously explored for base metals: among the historic data is an assay on a sample recovered from pegmatite that returned anomalous lithium (1,290 ppm), tantalum (126 ppm) and rare earth elements.  These elements are good pathfinders for pegmatite dykes that have the potential to host Li and other commodities.

Historic work on the project confirms the occurrence of mafic and granitic rocks, the latter including known late stage pegmatite intrusions. Satellite images over the project extend the evidence for the presence of multiple outcrops are consistent with the mapped granites, and have high potential for hosting pegmatite intrusions. The Company intends to rapidly assess the claims for further pegmatite occurrences, the targeted host rocks of lithium mineralization.

The Property also includes the Delbreuil base metal showing with historic assays on drill core of up to 3.4% Zn, 0.27% Ni, 0.38% Cu, 4.1 g/t Ag and 0.06% Co. Also located on the Project property, the Nodier showing includes assayed Zn mineralization, with up to 1.1% Zn reported.

In the vicinity of the Property, multiple lithium showings are known, including the Lac Simard showing with up to 1.3% lithium.  The Debreuil Property was not previously subject to specific lithium exploration so the Company is currently planning a phase 1 survey consisting of prospecting, mapping and till sampling to better define the lithium potential of the Property.

Qualified Person: Rémi Charbonneau, PhD OGQ, a Qualified Person (“QP”) as defined by National Instrument 43-101 guidelines, has reviewed and approved the technical content provided in this news release.

About the Company: Berkwood is engaged in exploration for the commodities that enable the modern revolution in essential technologies. These technologies are dependent upon materials that enhance the performance of energy storage systems and permit the development and miniaturization of new electronics and structural components in the new suite of innovative tools.  The Company is led by a team with collectively over 100 years experience and have been involved with numerous discoveries of producing mines.  Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, “ Berkwood’s board of Directors is very pleased to compliment our existing Graphite and Cobalt properties with another electric vehicle mineral, Lithium.   With a pegmatite sample that returned anomalous lithium as high as 1,290 ppm it confirms that Berkwood is plugged into high tech minerals!”

Berkwood Acquires Cobalt Ford Property, Quebec

Berkwood Resources Ltd. (“Berkwood”) (TSX-V:  BKR) announces it has entered into an agreement to acquire 1084422 B.C. Ltd., a private B.C. Company, which sole asset is the Cobalt Ford Property.  The Cobalt Fold Property (“the Property”) is located in the Côte-Nord area of Quebec. The Property is made of one block of 40 claims, totaling approximately 2,176.19 hectares or 21.76km2.  The property is situated near extensive infrastructure.  The Manic 5 hydro electrical dam is located approximately 15 km south of the Property and can provide lodging, food and other services as well as an airport.

Geological mapping in the area of the Property was performed in 1977, 1997, 2005 and 2006, and revealed the presence of multiple sulphide mineralization. Cobalt values of 904.3ppm and 1480ppm have been returned from rock sampling. A drilling campaign happened in 2006, which focused on the western half of the property. In 1996, 2004 and 2006, airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys were performed over the property.

The property contains three base metal showings. The Lac Paradis 1 showing is located on the western part of the property and was drilled by Quinto Technology. Best results returned 4.64% Ni, 2.37% Cu, 0.12% Co, 19ppb Pt, 110ppb Pd and 168ppb Au. In the center of the property is the anomaly EM C2 showings which returned up to 1554ppm Cu, 229ppm Ni and 5.6ppm Ag. On the eastern part of the property is the anomalies EM E2 showing, which returned up to 0.19% Cu, 0.09% Ni, 0.04% Co and 3.1ppm Ag.

In the vicinity of the Property there are numerous base metal showings. Approximately 6km south of the Property is the Anomalies EM H1-H2. Grab samples were collected and the best samples returned 0.16% Ni, 0.67% Cu and 0.02% Co. Located 10km east of the Cobalt Ford Property is the anomaly K15L2. Grab samples were collected on this anomaly and the best samples returned 0.50% Cu.  Figure 1 shows the location of the showings and the claim package.
