Caribou Begins Further Testwork on Aukam Graphite Samples

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 8, 2015) – CARIBOU KING RESOURCES LTD. (“Caribou” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:CKR)(FRANKFURT:CB8)(OTCBB:CBULF) is pleased to announce the delivery of 1,000 kilograms of samples from the Aukam graphite project to Lilhof Enterprises (“Lilhof”), formerly Gecko Laboratories of Swakopmund, Namibia.

The test samples were taken as part of a 25 tonne bulk sampling program from the lower adit at the Company’s Aukam project. These samples are believed to be representative of the product found within the underground adit.

The specific methods used by Lilhof to test the samples are as follows:

Crushing and grinding to 218 Microns

Dual Flotation

Drying and particle size analysis

The lab will prepare 80 kilograms of processed product which Caribou will distribute to end users for them to test the graphitic product for use in their added value manufacturing applications. It is expected that the end users will advise Caribou on specifications required.

Grade tests will also be conducted on 84 sub-samples to provide an accurate assessment of the purity and grade of the graphite.

The test program is expected to take about 4 weeks.

Caribou King has an option to acquire an initial 63% in the Aukam graphite project located on 96,000 acres in southern Namibia (see PR dated July 23, 2015). The property hosts three underground adits which were mined periodically between 1940 and 1974 and produced a recorded total of 26,740 tonnes of lump graphite. The high-quality, vein-type graphite (also known as lump graphite) is hosted within a shear zone in which underground mine workings show well-mineralized structures that are believed to continue down-dip.

The technical contents of this release were approved by Dr. Roger Moss, Ph.D, P.Geo. and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Caribou King Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CKR) is a publicly-traded, Canadian junior exploration company that holds a portfolio of highly prospective graphite projects at various stages of exploration and assessment.
