TRU Group Inc. Issues Positive Report on Graphite One Resources

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 -- Graphite One Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: GPH)(OTCQX: GPHOF) ("Graphite One" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has retained the engineering services of TRU Group Inc. ("TRU") to define initial options for development at Graphite Creek. In TRU Group's preliminary report dated June 20, 2014, TRU suggests "proceeding robustly with detailed geological evaluation, attendant test work and the engineering, technical and business studies" to confirm their preliminary findings at Graphite Creek. The report focuses on matching the resource to up-market functionalized end-use compounds, and indicates the following findings:

A summary of the results of the Report indicate (see 'About TRU Group Inc, below):


1.  A preliminary assessment suggests that the graphite is amenable for the
    development of a suitable spherical graphite product that is competitive
    on quality. There is significant opportunity for the Graphite Creek
    Project to push downstream by performing additional processing to their
    expected run of mine ("ROM") concentrate. The products recommended for
    development and manufacture include: uncoated spherical graphite for use
    in the Li+ battery market; expanded graphite, exfoliated and micronized,
    for use in the manufacture of alkaline batteries; jumbo flake graphite
    that can be sold to the refractory industry; and, micronized graphite,
    for use in the manufacture of alkaline batteries. The analysis took into
    account the carbon/graphite content, impurity levels, flake size, and
    potential for upgrading according to prior test results (see news
    releases dated April 29, 2013; April 24, 2014; February 28, 2014 and the
    Technical Report filed on SEDAR which can be viewed on the SEDAR
    website, www.sedar.com);
2.  The strategic significance of the Graphite Creek Project as a secure
    American-based resource as a substitute for Chinese supply, as well as a
    competitor against imports from other countries, should not be
    underestimated.

Anthony Huston, CEO of Graphite One adds, "We are pleased to have this report completed by the TRU Group who are known for their industry-leading expertise and roster of experts. We look forward to progressing the Graphite Creek Deposit to its full potential."

This release includes certain statements that may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts that address access to capital, regulatory approvals, exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects, are forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, continuity of mineralization, uncertainties related to the ability to obtain necessary permits, licenses and title and delays due to third party opposition, changes in government policies regarding mining and natural resource exploration and exploitation, and continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on this forward-looking information, which is given as of the date it is expressed in this press release, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking information, except as required by applicable securities laws.

The mineral resource estimates reported in this press release were prepared in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") applies different standards in the classification of mineralization. In particular, while the terms "measured," "indicated" and "inferred" mineral resources are required pursuant to NI 43-101, the SEC does not recognize such terms. Canadian standards differ significantly from the requirements of the SEC. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories constitute or will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, "inferred" mineral resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian securities laws, issuers must not make any disclosure of results of an economic analysis that includes inferred mineral resources, except in rare cases.
