November 18th, 2015, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (ABR-TSX:V) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a crew to commence the first phase of drilling at the Buckingham Graphite Project located in Buckingham Township, Quebec. The drilling program will consist of up to 2,000 metres of diamond drill core and will be aimed at testing high priority targets in the southern area of the claims.
The Buckingham Graphite Property consists of 28 claims in Ranges VIII and IX, Buckingham Township, Quebec which cover an area of 1,683 hectares. Exploration on the southern part of the claim group has yielded assay results as high as 21.6% Cg (graphitic carbon) over 14.5 metres from channel samples and purity results up to 96.1% Ct (total carbon) from large flake fractions (see Cavan releases, July 17, 2014 & May 28, 2015).
President and CEO Michael England states, “This first round of drilling, which is intended to follow up on high-grade intervals identified from trenching carried out in 2014, will be the first phase of a larger planned drilling program aimed at establishing the potential for a graphite resource on the Buckingham property. We intend to provide regular updates as we progress into this exciting new period for Ashburton.”
About the Buckingham Graphite Project
The Buckingham Graphite Project consists of 28 claims located in Ranges VIII and IX, Buckingham Township, Quebec and covers an area of 1,683 hectares. The property is located 1.7 kilometers north of the historic, producing Walker Graphite Mine and covers the northern extension of a graphitic zone beginning on Caribou King Resources’ Buckingham Property. Helicopter-borne magnetic and time-domain electromagnetic surveys confirmed a historic conductor, and further resolved a second parallel conductor to a length of 300 meters (see Cavan release, September 24, 2013). Historic airborne electromagnetic surveys have identified additional conductors striking over a large portion of the Buckingham Graphite Project.
