E-Power Resources Inc. (CSE: EPR) (‘E-Power’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased announce the Company has entered into an option agreement with Volt Carbon Technologies Inc. (TSXV: VCT) (‘Volt’ or ‘Volt Carbon’) enabling Volt Carbon to acquire a 5% interest in the Tetepisca Graphite Project (‘Tetepisca’) by funding $680,000 in exploration before December 31, 2024 and making a one-time cash payment of $1,500,000 on or before December 31, 2025.
James Cross, President and CEO of E-Power commented: ‘We are pleased to be announcing further exploration of our Tetepisca Graphite Project. Volt Carbon is a carbon science company with holdings in graphite exploration properties. Volt Carbon has developed proprietary graphite ore processing technology and is in the early stages of developing and producing solid-state lithium-ion batteries. We have previously engaged Volt to process samples from Tetepisca into graphite concentrates which can be provided as samples to battery manufacturers. We welcome continued collaboration with Volt Carbon as a step in the process to bring Tetepisca graphite from the ground in Quebec to end-users in North America and Europe.’
About the Tetepisca Property
The Tetepisca Property is located approximately 220 km north of the town and deep water port of Baie-Comeau in the North Shore Region of Québec. The property consists of 230 claims covering an area of approximately 12,620 hectares within the emerging Tetepisca Graphite District (‘TGD’). The TGD is an active graphite exploration and development district with delineated measured and indicated resources in excess of 100 Mt at an average grade of 14% Cg. The Company’s Tetepisca property is strategically located only a 3 hour and 15 minute drive from the deepwater Port of Baie-Comeau. Baie-Comeau is the planned home of a 200,000 tonne per year battery anode material producer. The Tetepisca Property provides an excellent opportunity to host very significant graphite resources in a tier-one jurisdiction providing for environmentally and socially responsible development and production.
About the Tetepisca Property Option Agreement
Under the terms of the agreement E-Power will grant Volt an option to acquire a 5% interest in the Tetepisca Graphite Project. Volt has agreed to spend $680,000 on exploration of the Tetepisca Graphite Project prior to December 31, 2024. As part of the agreement, EPR will issue to Volt 6,600,000 shares of the Company, in tranches, as exploration expenses are incurred.
