Berkwood Resources Ltd (CVE:BKR) announced Wednesday that it has de-mobilized its field crews at its Lac Gueret extension projects, located adjacent to its Lac Gueret South Graphite Project in Quebec.
The firm, which is developing a high-grade graphite deposit in Quebec and recently acquired additional ground adjacent to its Lac Gueret South graphite project, said the move came after the collection of surface graphite exposure samples and near-surface conductor distribution data.
Berkwood recently announced plans to evaluate multiple proximally located bedded graphite deposits with an aim to feed a "future, centrally located processing facility."
The company recently assessed the historic sampling, which revealed a number of high-priority targets, some of which have returned high-grade samples during previous work.
The geophysics and sampling work consisted of 79 grab samples and 66 channel samples, which contained graphite from seven zones, notably from Zones 6 and 9. The firm said the samples have been submitted to Activation Laboratories of Ancaster, Ontario, for graphitic carbon testing.
The firm said the program accessed the first round of targets using existing roads and trails. Berkwood said it anticipates results in about four weeks.
Berkwood's Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three-hour drive from Baie-Comeau.
