Velocity Minerals Ltd.: Expiry of Graphite Option
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 7, 2012) - Velocity Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VLC.H) (the "Company") advises that, as announced in its news releases of April 16, 2012 and August 9, 2012 describing the option of three Quebec graphite properties, the Company was required to obtain regulatory approval of the transaction and make certain payments and share issuances by October 31, 2012 in order to proceed with the option. In the current financial market environment and particularly for graphite, the Company has not been able to secure the financing necessary to enable it to proceed with the option and therefore has not been able to obtain regulatory approval. As a consequence, the option agreement is no longer in force and the Company will no longer be pursuing the project.
The Company continues to seek projects that management believes are financeable and will be attractive to the market.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Kenneth R. Holmes, Chairman
