MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - July 5, 2017) - Nouveau Monde Graphite Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NOU)(OTCQB:NMGRF)(FRANKFURT:NM9) ("Nouveau Monde") is pleased to announce that the graphite mineralization in the West Zone of its Matawinie graphite Property has been extended by 165 m to the south following the recent expansion of two of its claims. A total of 18 hectares of land, in which exploration is now permitted, was added to these claims after high-level negotiations with Hydro-Quebec and the "Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources Naturelles". Importantly, the mineralization intersected in this new area remains open to the south, to the north and at depth. Additional drilling is planned later this Fall to further increase the West Zone Mineral Resource Estimate.
