Thirty-three graphite samples contained an average graphitic carbon content of 20.88%, and graphitic carbon content at the new Kalaaq graphite showing averaged 25.62% carbon(with the highest seen at 29%).

Additionally, the company said trace element geochemistry of graphite samples showed that they were low in potentially deleterious elements (As, Cd, Hg).

Grab samples collected from a sulphide-rich area of the Amitsoq hornblende peridodite dyke contained 0.3 grams per tonne platinum, 0.3 g/t palladium, and 0.3 g/t gold.

And stream sediment and grab samples collected over the licence area indicate that only the Søndre Sermilik target contains elevated gold (up to 0.4 g/t) and copper (up to 0.77%) concentrations in previously untested structures.
