Xmet Acquires Western Extension of 'All Channel' Graphite Target on Blackflake West

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Xmet Inc. ("Xmet" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: XME) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 50% interest in 29 claim units in four claims on the western boundary of the Blackflake West property. These claims appear to host a possible western extension of Blackflake West's 'All Channel' Electromagnetic graphite target. Xmet also has the option to increase its interest to 65% in the near term by flying EM over the new claims within the next four months.

Xmet's interpretation of the VTEM survey flown over the Blackflake West target is that the "All Channel" anomaly appears to extend to, and possibly beyond, the western edge of the Company's existing boundary. The acquisition of these new claims secures Xmet's land position around the 'All Channel' target and ensures that the Company is well positioned to capitalize on its potential.

"This acquisition was key to Xmet gaining the appropriate land position given what we interpret the "All Channel" target's location and potential extension. Furthermore the terms of the agreement are very favourable to our shareholders as the Company will not be issuing any shares or cash for the initial 50% interest in the new claims." The transaction was completed with a private company with whom Xmet had previously agreed to sell unrelated mining claims in return for shares in the private company, Alibaba Graphite Corp. Under the current transaction, Xmet is cancelling its right to receive those shares in the private company and retaining the claims.

With the complete land package secured, Xmet will look to proceed on the next phases of its geophysical program on Blackflake West, including ground geophysics to better define the target for drill positioning.

As set out in our News Release of June 4, 2014, our priority target has the following features:


1.  An "All Channel" EM response, associated with a magnetic low;
2.  A strike length structure greater than one km;
3.  A similarity in EM profile and mag low to Zenyatta's Graphite diatreme
    pipes; and
4.  The "All Channel" EM response, indicates conductivity at depth which
    correlates well with a graphite source.
