STANDARD GRAPHITE (SGH-TSX.V) IS SUPER CHARGED
By Metal Investment News
Global graphite demand is expected to double in the next 8 years. There will be a 20% a year growth rate in the lithium ion battery space which uses high carbon, “large flake” (+80 micron) graphite selling for $2,400 a tonne.
Rapid adoption cell phones, laptops, e-readers, hybrid cars is fueling the demand.
There are no big graphite mines.
A 40,000 tonne/year large flake graphite mine is considered big. It will take 25 new mines to service the projected demand coming in the next 8 years.
China produces around 73% of the world’s graphite. The Chinese manufacturing sector uses most of that. China’s 20% export and 17% VAT means that very little graphite leaves China. Supply concerns outside of Asia are mounting. The European Union and USA have named graphite a supply critical mineral.
Standard Graphite (SGH-TSX.V) has 12 graphite projects in Ontario and Québec.
The 12 property acquisitions were acquired by Chief Geologist, Antoine Fournier, who has 20 years’ experience in the exploration of high-tech metals and minerals.
The shallow depths of the ore body make production quicker. The cost of the building a mine is low. Milling is also low cost as graphite is typically crushed, ground and floated.
“Developing a graphite deposit requires special geological, operational and deal-making expertise,” states President and CEO Chris Bogart, “Our team has been assembled for the sole purpose of creating a profitable large flake graphite mine in Canada.”
“Our objective in 2012 is to narrow the 12 properties down to one Flagship property,” says Bogart, “If we were looking for gold we’d need significant amounts of capital, but graphite is inexpensive to explore. “
The Little Bryan Property in Ontario was originally thought to have graphite mineralisation along a 1.3 km east-west trend. The 2012 EM survey shows something bigger and potentially more significant.
• Twelve projects within three highly prospective districts in Quebec & Ontario
• All projects are in districts amenable to large flake, high purity graphite deposits
• All projects have the geological characteristics amenable to a major graphite discovery
• Airborne Electromagnetic - ~3,500 line km’s - Commenced
• Ground EM Survey, Mapping, Sampling, Trenching
• First Phase drill program on a minimum 5-6 prioritized targets
Standard Graphite is positioning itself as North America's best graphite exploration company.
According to a World Market Report, lithium-ion batteries for transportation market will grow 700% in the next five years. Currently trading at .74 with 22.8 million shares outstanding and a market cap of $16 million, Standard Graphite is positioned to profit from this macro-trend.
