There is 2 main factors, there was no speronizing mill in North America, most of it was done in China, certainly better to have one more local

Also we know the Coulometrics to Tesla connection. What I heard and confirms my original thought is Tesla is they want their graphite from a number of sources. They will need lots and a secure supply so would be foolish to rely on one supplier

Any comments on this news, very different direction for a few companies to work together

Mr. Troy Grant of Elcora reports

GRAPHITE COMPANIES JOIN FORCES FOR SPHERICAL GRAPHITE DEVELOPMENT

Elcora Advanced Materials Corp., Northern Graphite Corp., Nouveau Monde Mining Enterprises Inc., Metals of Africa Ltd., Coulometrics LLC and a private industry partner are jointly acquiring a micronizing and spheronizing mill to produce spherical graphite (SPG), a critical step in the production of anode material used in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs).

The mill will be added to Coulometrics' battery production and test facility. Considerable work has already been completed by Coulometrics to produce SPG and to evaluate many different suppliers of spheronizing equipment. Northern Graphite has financially supported most of this work and has agreed to share its current knowledge on spheronizing with the other participating companies. All of the participating companies will share in any spheronizing technologies that are developed going forward. The spheronizing equipment will be used to evaluate and optimize the yield of SPG from various graphite mine concentrates and to develop next-generation and high-yield spheronization technology to meet the demanding cost targets for automotive LIB applications. Ultimately, the goal of all the parties is to achieve full qualification of their materials by LIB manufacturing companies.

Whoa ho!! big move in Northern this week on no news, seen them at PDAC and really nothing new. Looks like the whole sector is coming back, seen Focus had a big move too!!

Been a long time since we seen this and way over due

NORTHERN GRAPHITE ADVANCES PURIFICATION TECHNOLOGY

A major international engineering company has completed a fatal flaw analysis and scoping study with respect to Northern Graphite Corp.'s proprietary purification process. It was concluded that Northern's process does not present any major technical challenges, can be carried out using relatively standard processing equipment and will not generate any harmful waste products. Capital costs are estimated at approximately $10.5-million (U.S.) (including a 35-per-cent contingency) for a facility to purify 5,000 tonnes per year of either flake graphite concentrate or spherical graphite, the anode material used in lithium-ion batteries. Operating costs to purify spherical graphite to 99.95 per cent carbon were estimated at approximately 50 U.S. cents per kilogram. Capital and operating costs are based on conservative reagent volumes and retention times and could be reduced with further testing and optimization, which will be done through the construction of a pilot plant.

Gregory Bowes, chief executive officer, commented: "The purification of mine concentrates is critical to accessing a number of value-added markets. This is the first viable, cost-competitive alternative to the Chinese acid-based process, which is difficult to use in the West because of environmental/regulatory issues." He added, "The large and [extralarge] flake nature of our deposit provides us with the luxury of focusing almost entirely on high-value, high-growth markets such as spherical graphite, high-purity flake graphite and expandable graphite (used in thermal management for consumer electronics, fuel cells, advanced building materials, et cetera)."

A number of technologies that are related to Northern's process have been investigated and patented in the past. The company is not aware of any currently being used to purify meaningful quantities of natural graphite, likely because they cannot achieve required purity levels, reagent consumption is too high or because of technical challenges associated with the reagents and scaling to commercial volumes. The company believes its process can economically purify commercial quantities of its natural graphite concentrate to 99.95 per cent carbon in an environmentally sustainable manner. Initial discussions with the company's consulting engineers and legal counsel indicate that the process and associated equipment should be patentable.

A competitor of the company, whose chief executive officer is a former executive of Northern, recently released a preliminary economic assessment, which is based on a "proprietary low-temperature purification process" claimed as its own. Northern believes there is sufficient information in the preliminary economic assessment to conclude that this process is essentially a copy of the one developed by Northern at considerable time and expense. Northern considers its process to be proprietary intellectual property that is protected as a trade secret and confidential information at common law and through confidentiality agreements which remain in force. Any attempt to use the technology will be met with the appropriate legal response. Reagent consumption and reaction times are very low when the process is used on Northern's concentrates, and this may not be the case for others.

Dr. Mehmet F. Taner, PhD, PGeo, consulting geologist, independent qualified person (as that term is defined within National Instrument 43-101), approved the technical content of this press release.

Large shareholder I know thinks fundamentals are all fine but has traded different since the summer financing, Thinks some of them might be selling for a tax loss ?

One other thing - the financing they did in July has become free trading but that was at 60 cents, be a big loss to sell here?

I think that is about right, pretty much all the commodity sectors took a big hit the last few weeks, now this week the major indexes. Only good thing with this turmoil maybe gold has bottomed. Very sad events in France tonite might have market effects come Monday too???

It looks like all graphite stocks are down from their highs. Same story with FMS and VQA.
