  • 16. 2012-2013 Field Work Programs The 2012 Field Work Program extended the gold-in-soil anomalous zone, 1 km to the northeast, along the projected Discovery Zone Trend. Results were very encouraging with individual gold values ranging from below detection limit to 953 ppb. In 2013 geochemical sampling work on the property confirmed the continuity of the main soil anomaly and extended its length to 5000 metres indicating the large extent of the mineralizing system. Prospect Valley Gold Property, BC
  • 17. 2014 Field Work Program In September 2014 Berkwood announced the completion of a ground magnetics program at Prospect Valley, during which field crews outlined a new anomalous geophysical zone and found indications of new epithermal mineralization. Results of the ground magnetics geophysical survey suggest that the Discovery Trend continues a further 1200m to the south of the previous work into an area that is largely hidden by overburden cover. The geophysical program consisted of 21 lines varying in lengths of 700 meters to 900 meters and was surveyed with readings taken along the lines at 12.5 meter stations. Prospecting was carried out concurrently with the geophysical survey and despite the extensive overburden cover, an area of scattered epithermal-textured quartz-chalcedony veins was discovered in bedrock and overburden boulders along this new geophysical trend. This new area has been named the QCA Zone. Assays from initial samples collected are pending. Berkwood has planned a program of geological mapping, hand trenching and sampling in the new QCA Zone to delineate the zone on surface, as well as additional ground magnetics surveying to infill and extend the current geophysical grid.

  • 26. The Graphite Story Graphite's current uses, future applications and supply & demand dynamics www.berkwoodresources.com TSX.V BKR
  • 27. •One of 3 types of carbon: Graphite, Diamonds and Coal all share chemical formula C. •Mineral Forms: Natural (Flake, Amorphous) and Synthetic (Powders). •Natural Large Flake Graphite demand is increasing. The Graphite Story •Flake size and purity dictates price (Large Flake +80 mesh). •Growing demand from traditional industries, new industrial applications and green energy technologies. Graphite Overview
  • 28. •Application for graphitic material is constantly evolving due to it’s unique chemical and thermal properties. •Maintains its stability and strength under temperatures in excess of 3,600ºC. •High natural lubricating abilities. •High conductor of heat and electricity. •One of the lightest of all reinforcing elements. •Very resistant to chemical corrosion, heat and oxidization. •These key physical and chemical properties make it critical to modern industry. •Considered a strategic element by many leading industrial nations. U.S.A., Europe and China have included graphite among a short list of critical materials. Why Graphite? Graphite Overview
  • 29. Traditional uses in Modern Industry •Steel Making - added to raise carbon content. •Electrodes in electric arc furnaces •Brake pad linings •Dry lubricants New Technologies and Clean Energy •Fuel cells, which power hybrid and electric vehicles. •Lithium Ion Batteries in portable consumer devices, laptops, smartphones etc. •Heat spreaders in tablet computers, flat panel displays etc. •Lining for modern Pebble Bed Nuclear Reactors. •Development of Graphene - known as the miracle material of the 21st century. End users of Graphite Graphite Overview
  • 30. •Industrial demand growing 5% per annum over the last 10 years due to industrialization of emerging economies such as China and India. •European Union and USA named graphite a mineral in critical supply. •Lack of exploration and development over recent decades and China producing 70% of the world’s Graphite has raised concerns over securing long-term, stable sources of supply. •Chinese production and exports expected to decline due to consolidation of existing mines and focus on domestic supply chain for down stream manufacturing. •Approximately 30% of Chinese Graphite is Flake and the majority of this is small (+200/-80 mesh range). Production of Large Flake (+80 mesh) in China is declining. •Clean technology applications have the potential to consume more graphite than all current uses combined.
