Management4Dave Rees - President & CEO; Director35+ years of mineral exploration and business experienceKen Phillippe – CFO; DirectorChartered accountant with 25+ years of pubco operating experienceChris Dyakowski - PGeo; DirectorExploration geologist with 30+ years experienceTom Christy - Director30+ years as owner/operator of financial services businessMarc Sandercombe – Director30+ years investment industry experience as advisor and consultant
  5. 5. Business Plan• Project generator exploration model• Identify and acquire discovery stage & drillready projects• Upgrade through drilling and discovery• Seek & secure well-financed joint-venturepartner with development expertise• Share in success of accelerated explorationand development5
  6. 6. Business Objectives• Create shareholder value while:maintaining low exploration andadministration expenselimiting need do to equity financingsminimizing shareholder dilution• Foster diversity; being neither single projectnor single commodity dependent6
  7. 7. Selection Criteria• Only properties in pro-mining jurisdictions areconsidered• Properties must demonstrate large scale resourcepotential• Location - infrastructure readily accessible: Power Water Road & rail access Skilled work force Community services7
  8. 8. Exploration FocusNoram is currently focused onthree exploration properties inthe Central Kootenay Regionof British Columbia.The area has a rich mining history datingback over 130 years.Mining is a key goods-producing industryemployer in the area8* Source: Stats Canada
  9. 9. Current PropertiesJumboNew discovery of large-flake graphite targets inwidespread, surface, outcroppings; early stageKokaneeArea of initial drill testing shows near surfacepotential of 15,000,000 to 22,500,000 tonnesgrading 1.65 to 1.80% graphiteSilver HillHost to a porphyry/skarn style copper-molybdenumtarget; drill ready9
  10. 10. Jumbo Property• Option to Earn a 100% interest• Located 15km southwest of Nakusp, BC• Covers a large area of 10,539 hectares (>100 square km)• SkyTEM survey, geological mapping and surface samplinghave identified an overall strike length of 35 km of favourablegraphite horizon• A total of 81 bedrock and float rock samples were collectedand analytical results returned grades of 0.03 to 7.37% carbongraphite (“C/GRA”) with average grades as follows:• 7 samples from the Mosquito area averaged 1.43% C/GRA;• 17 samples from the Black Fly area averaged 2.54% C/GRA; and• 57 samples from the Fisher area averaged 1.96% C/GRA.• SGS Lakefield hired for metallurgy10
  11. 11. Kokanee Property• Option to Earn a 100% interest• Located 50km northeast of Nelson, BC• Covers an area of 1,659 hectares• Assay results from initial drill program confirmedsignificant graphite mineralization over true widths of 60to 137m and established the down-dip depth to be 100to 150m and the strike length of the graphite horizon tobe 1,200m, zone is open north, south and down dip• Using a cut-off of 1% graphite the area drilled shows apotential of 15,000,000 to 22,500,000 tonnes grading1.65 to 1.80% graphite*11* Caution: insufficient exploration to determine a NI 43-101 resources estimate
  12. 12. Silver Hill Property• Option to Earn a 100% interest• Located 45km southeast of Revelstoke, BC• Covers an area of 2,784 hectares• Porphyry/skarn style copper-molybdenummineralization• Noram completed an exploration program thatincluded a 3D IP and magnetic survey, a geochemsurvey, reconnaissance sampling and prospecting.• Six drill ready targets identified• Permitting in place12
  13. 13. There are three principal types of natural graphite (graphite),each occurring in different types of ore deposit:• Crystalline flake graphite (flake graphite) occurs as isolated,flat, plate-like particles with hexagonal edges that can beirregular when broken;• Amorphous graphite occurs as fine particles and is the resultof the last stage of coalification. Very fine flake graphite issometimes called amorphous in the trade;• Lump graphite (or vein graphite) occurs in fissure veins orfractures and appears as massive platy intergrowths of fibrousor needle like crystalline aggregates, and is probablyhydrothermal in origin.Natural Graphite13Source: Wikipedia
  14. 14. Supply/Demand Outlook• Both the US State Department and the European Commissionhave all declared graphite to be a critical raw material• Global graphite production is currently ~1.1 million tonsannually and demand has been growing at ~5% per year• Global steel production remains the largest driver of graphiteconsumption – estimated to be up to 70% of global production• Emerging markets include lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells andpebble-bed nuclear reactors• Billions are being spent to research the new material grapheneand its potential use in semiconductors, solar cells, LEDs, etc.• Estimates have annual graphite demand increasing to 1.6million tons in the next 5 years14Sources: Industrial Minerals, USGS, Roskill, MetalMiner
  15. 15. Global Supply Concerns• China accounts for ~75% of natural graphite production in theworld and is also the largest graphite consumer• Globally there are concerns of resource protection as China’sdomestic demand grows and export restrictions that could leadto export supply disruptions• Additional concern stems from China’s ability to maintain itssupply of flake graphite as enhanced mining regulations areconsolidating production from its legacy graphite mines• Major international buyers are now looking to become 100%self-sufficient in graphite because to alleviate dependence onChinese supply, long term15Sources: Industrial Minerals
  16. 16. Graphite Price• The larger the flake size and higher the grade the morevaluable the flake graphite commands in the market• Prices for good quality (-80 to +100 mesh, 94 to 97% carboncontent) medium-flake graphite averaged $1,530 per ton in2012, which compares to the average of $500 per ton in 200716Sources: Industrial Minerals, USGS$-$500$1,000$1,500$2,0002008 2009 2010 2011 2012Medium Flake Graphite Prices
  17. 17. • Thinnest material imaginable - 1 gram could covera football field in a single layer of carbon atomsarranged in honeycomb structure• Strongest material ever measured with recordthermal conductivity (> diamond)• Stiffest known material, yet most stretchable andpliable crystal• Highest current density at room temp. (1mil. times copper)• Highest intrinsic mobility (100 times silicon)• Completely impermeable to gasesGraphene’s Potential17
