(“Mason Graphite” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: LLG; OTCQX: MGPHF) would like to congratulate NanoXplore (TSX.V: GRA) for its recently announced construction financing.

Benoît Gascon, President and CEO of Mason Graphite commented: “We are very proud to have NanoXplore as a partner, which has now established itself amongst the world’s leading graphene companies. The potentially explosive growth of the graphene market remains difficult to fully understand today, and from the onset, we have always liked NanoXplore’s ultra low-cost processing technology and their industrial business approach to focus on rapidly accessible large volume markets. The quality of their strategic shareholders speaks volume.”
