Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 8, 2019) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQX: NGPHF) (the "Company") announces that as part of its ongoing review of the economics of the Bissett Creek graphite project (the "Project"), G Mining Services Inc. ("G Mining") has completed an analysis which indicates that increasing annual concentrate production by at least 20 per cent can be achieved with a relatively modest six per cent increase in capital costs for the first phase of development. Higher production would also reduce unit operating costs and is expected to have a very positive effect on the Project's net present value ("NPV") and internal rate of return ("IRR"). Accordingly, the Company intends to integrate an initial production rate of approximately 25,000 tonnes per year into its development plans.

Gregory Bowes, CEO, commented that: "The Bissett Creek project already has attractive economics at current prices and they will be further enhanced by the higher production level. We do not believe this will significantly increase the risk associated with introducing new supply into the market. Most graphite deposits contain large resources but production must be "right-sized" for target markets as some large, low margin segments are currently unattractive to western producers. Northern's strategy is to focus on higher value industrial markets, mainly in the US and Europe. Many require large and XL flake graphite and the Company is fortunate to have a deposit with a very high percentage of these grades when demand is growing, Chinese production is declining and the only North American source is near the end of its life."

The first phase of development, for which a NI 43-101 Feasibility Study ("FS") has previously been filed, contemplated producing 20,800 tonnes of graphite concentrate per year with a capital cost of $101.6 million. Phase 2 involves a future doubling of production, based on measured and indicated resources only, to meet the expected growth in graphite demand. A Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") encompassing both Phase 1 and 2 is available on Sedar and is the current NI 43-101 report on the Project.

The Company's press release dated December 12, 2018 provided a sensitivity analysis on Project economics in the PEA based on estimates of current capital and operating costs, exchange rates and commodity prices. The sensitivity analysis estimated a pre-tax IRR of 30.1 per cent (25.0 per cent after tax) and a pre-tax NPV of $304.9 million ($198.2 million after tax) using an eight per cent discount rate. The Company anticipates that the higher production level and lower unit costs contemplated in the latest analysis will result in a meaningful increase in the Project NPV and IRR for both Phase 1 and Phase 2.

The disclosure herein relating to Project economics is supported only by the sensitivity analysis within the PEA and does not reflect the PEA base case economic analysis. The PEA is based on Measured and Indicated resources only. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The PEA is preliminary in nature and there is no certainty that the results of the preliminary economic assessment will be realized.

A comprehensive metallurgical test program is currently underway at SGS Lakefield to confirm graphite recoveries, concentrate purity and flake size yield under a new simplified flow sheet and to bring testing up to feasibility level standards. Once these results are available, the Company will determine if it is necessary or beneficial to prepare and file a new NI 43-101 report.

Warrant Extension

The Company is pleased to announce that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to extend the expiry date of 3,909,166 warrants which are exercisable to purchase common shares of the Company at an exercise price of $0.40 and which were issued under a private placement that was completed on March 24, 2017. The expiry date for the warrants has been extended from March 24, 2019 to March 24, 2021. All other terms and conditions of the warrants remain unchanged. The Company will not issue replacement warrant certificates and warrant holders will be required to present the original certificates in order to exercise their warrants on or before the new expiry date.

Northern Graphite Signs Product Offtake Agreement

Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 4, 2018) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQX: NGPHF) ("Northern" or the "Company") announces that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with a European commodity trading company to sell 100 per cent of the projected output from the Bissett Creek graphite project in China. The parties intend to enter into a binding agreement when a number of conditions have been met, including the arrangement of project financing. Northern's partner will be identified at that time as per their request.

Customers of the trading company have tested graphite from a number of different sources outside China and have found that Northern's graphite is of the highest quality and fits best with market requirements. Chinese production of XL (+50 mesh) and XXL (+32 mesh) flake graphite is declining while demand is growing, particularly in the expandable graphite market. There is an immediate opportunity for new production and Northern is uniquely positioned to meet that need with an advanced stage project that will produce almost entirely large/XL/XXL flake and which has a reasonable capital cost. The project is also located close to infrastructure in a politically stable jurisdiction.

The Bissett Creek project will produce almost no small flake or fines, both of which are in oversupply. Chinese companies continue to add small flake production capacity to meet demand from the rapidly growing lithium ion battery ("LiB") market which has kept small flake prices from rising. This will continue to be the case until the very positive growth forecasts for electric vehicles are realized. China Minmetals Corporation, China's largest metals and minerals group, recently estimated that the demand for spherical graphite, the anode material in LiBs, will be one million tonnes by 2020 and most will be consumed in China. This will require annual flake graphite production to more than double from current levels. While Northern is not specifically targeting the LiB market, a rise in small flake prices is expected to drive up prices for all flake sizes.

Gregory Bowes, CEO commented that: "The fact that we can sell up to 100 per cent of production in China alone is very strong confirmation of current market conditions and provides a base level of sales which will enable the Company to pursue project financing. Demand for XL/XXL flake is also strong outside of China and Northern has the flexibility to pursue other opportunities to diversify sales."

Expandable Graphite

Expandable graphite is manufactured by treating large and particularly XL flake graphite concentrates with an intercalation agent that penetrates between the many layers of each individual flake. It can be sold as is or heated which causes the intercalation agent to expand, splitting the flakes apart and increasing the volume by hundreds of times. The expanded graphite is then pressed into self binding sheets or foils. These products are used for thermal management in consumer electronics as every smart phone, tablet and flat panel TV, as well as solar panels, require a sheet of graphite foil to keep them cool and dust free; for gasket products in the automotive, petroleum, chemical and nuclear industries as graphite does not rust, corrode or react with acids; in conductive plates for fuel cells and flow batteries; and in fire retardants. The latter market is expected to grow rapidly as the use of brominated flame retardants is phased out or banned. Expandable graphite is principally made from +50 mesh XL flake which sells for approximately US$1,750/tonne while expandable graphite can sell for up to US$3,000/tonne.

Northern Graphite: Metallurgical Testing Indicates Potential to Reduce Capital and Operating Costs

Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 8, 2018) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQX: NGPHF) ("Northern" or the "Company") announces that ongoing metallurgical testing being carried out by SGS Lakefield ("SGS") has identified a very promising opportunity to simplify the process plant design and reduce capital and operating costs for the Bissett Creek Project. The test work is part of the Company's planned update of its Feasibility Study ("FS") and is subject to further evaluation, testing and cost/benefit analysis.

SGS evaluated a number of crushing and grinding options with the objective of creating a simpler, lower cost flow sheet that maximizes the recovery of high value, large and XL flake graphite and maintains concentrate purity levels, while sacrificing the recovery of some lower value, smaller flake material. The original flow sheet in the FS consisted of SAG milling, flash flotation, regrinding followed by rougher flotation, and then polishing and cleaning which lead to overall recoveries of up to 95 per cent. Testing to date indicates that SAG milling alone, followed by flotation, polishing and cleaning, can achieve recoveries of up to 90 per cent with almost no loss of large and XL flake production. This creates the potential to remove a large regrind ball mill and the rougher flotation circuit from the process plant.

Ore from the Bissett Creek deposit is not "hard" compared to many conventional mining operations and it fractures easily along cleavage planes where the graphite flakes are located. As a result, the graphite is liberated relatively easily with a minimum of crushing and grinding and little degradation of the large and XL flakes. The Company intends to test the new approach on a number of samples from across the deposit to ensure results are consistent. While this testing program has delayed progress on the Company's FS update, it could lead to a meaningful reduction in capital and operating costs.

Gregory Bowes, CEO commented that: "A significant competitive advantage of the Bissett Creek Project is that it has one of the simplest flow sheets in the industry which contributes to it also having among the lowest processing costs per tonne of ore. Recent test results have created the potential to improve project economics which are already attractive at current, relatively low graphite prices."

Great to see NGC highlight the real world and just not hype about batteries. Sell the large flake and use fines for battery anodes

"However, large and extra large flake concentrates are too valuable to be used in this manner." He added: "the high percentage of large and XL flake at Bissett Creek provides a strategic alternative of initially focussing on high value, high margin industrial markets rather than the battery market, which is currently very competitive and dominated by Chinese producers."

Great news today

Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 5, 2018) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQX: NGPHF) announces that additional testing has confirmed that lithium ion battery ("LiB") anode material made from concentrates from its Bissett Creek deposit meet or exceed current commercial specifications. The test work was carried out by the Beijing General Research Institute of Mining and Metallurgy ("BGRIMM"), a Chinese state owned metallurgical research and development company.

Test results indicate that the crystallinity, yield and specific surface area (5.652 m2/g for 16µ material) of the Bissett Creek material were all better than industry standards. A yield of 50 per cent was achieved on a batch basis and can potentially be increased to 70 per cent with a continuous, commercial process. The tap density was 1 g/cm3 which is comparable to existing products.

Gregory Bowes, CEO, commented that: "essentially all Bissett Creek production could theoretically be turned into a premium LiB anode material because of its outstanding crystallinity, flake size and purity, and this differentiates it from most other deposits. However, large and extra large flake concentrates are too valuable to be used in this manner." He added: "the high percentage of large and XL flake at Bissett Creek provides a strategic alternative of initially focussing on high value, high margin industrial markets rather than the battery market, which is currently very competitive and dominated by Chinese producers."

BGRIMM has commenced a second study to evaluate the Company's LiB anode material (also called spherical graphite or "SPG"), with respect to purification, coating and electrochemical performance. Purification in particular is a key step in manufacturing SPG. The tests will enable the Company to benchmark the results against its own patent pending purification technology. The Company's technology, jointly developed with Hatch Inc., potentially represents the first cost competitive, environmentally sustainable alternative to Chinese methods of manufacturing anode material for the rapidly growing electric vehicle and grid storage markets.

About BGRIMM

BGRIMM is a premier Chinese institute in the field of mining and metallurgical technology and operates directly under the Chinese Government (SASAC). It has over 4,000 employees, is headquartered in Beijing and has operations in a number of provinces including Hebei, Jiangsu, Liaoning and Hunan as well as Santiago, Chile. BGRIMM has been conducting research on graphite since the 1970s and its services include mining, mineral processing (process development, flotation and reagent optimization and equipment design), and purification and downstream processing. It has completed a number of key national projects in recent years.
