Stockhouse Canadian Small and Micro-cap Stock Report for Tuesday, March 19, 2013  TORONTO (SHfn) –  Graniz Mondal Inc. (TSX: V.GRA.H, Stock Forum) soared 38% to 0.345 cents on Tuesday after the graphite-focused junior said it had discovered wide intercepts of graphite mineralization at the Brunet graphite deposit located near Mont-Laurier, Quebec. The highlights included over 209 feet grading 5% graphite and over 163 feet grading 7.2% graphite.

Encanto Potash (TSX: V.EPO, Stock Forum) was up 9% to 30 cents. The stock is reacting to news that the Harper Government supports development of the first ever on-reserve potash mine.

In addition, the mine is expected to generate tens of millions in revenue royalties for the First Nation annually.
