About Great Lakes Graphite: Shield Gold Inc., operating as Great Lakes Graphite, is an industrial minerals company with the mandate to bring graphite projects to production through the acquisition and development of high quality graphite flake properties. Graphite has moved to the forefront of the Industrial Mineral World as a Critical Mineral required for industrial use and as a major component in the development of new technologies. With the advancement of battery storage, mobile battery systems and alternative energy infrastructure, it is estimated that 20 new graphite flake mines will be required to keep up with demand by the year 2020.

The Company’s graphite properties are located in the Buckingham and Lochaber Townships of southwestern Québec.
