Northern Graphite Confirms High Quality and Value of Concentrates
Published: April 26, 2021 at 9:27 a.m. ET

Ottawa, Ontario, Apr 26, 2021 (Newsfile Corp via COMTEX) -- Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 26, 2021) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (the "Company" or "Northern") is pleased to announce that ProGraphite GmbH has completed the first phase of testing designed to characterize and optimize the Company's graphite concentrates for use in advanced applications such as fuel cells, lithium ion batteries ("LiBs") and flow batteries as well as in traditional markets.

ProGraphite concluded that graphite from the Bisset Creek deposit has an almost unique combination of high carbon content and extremely coarse particle size distribution. These grades are in high demand, availability is relatively low and prices are the highest of any standard graphite concentrate types. ProGraphite indicated that the greatest potential for Bissett Creek graphite is in the fast-growing expandable graphite market, especially with respect to its use in the manufacture of bipolar plates for hydrogen fuel cells. A second phase of testing has commenced to characterize it for use in lithium ion batteries.

Gregory Bowes, CEO commented that: "Characterization work continues to confirm the industry leading quality of Bissett Creek concentrates. There are no limits to the applications for which it can be used and it is especially suitable for the fuel cell market." He added: "Like the lithium ion battery market, the expandable graphite market is dominated by China for all the wrong reasons. The west needs secure, transparent and sustainable sources of supply to support growth in the fuel cell industry which will be an important contributor the green energy economy."

ProGraphite is located in Germany and is one of the world's leading graphite R&D laboratories with over several decades of professional expertise and experience. It's testing demonstrated that graphite from the Bissett Creek deposit also meets or exceeds the requirements for a wide range of very important traditional applications such as refractories, crucibles, friction products, carbon brushes, sealants, etc. Notable results include:

Over 77 per cent of the concentrate was +80 mesh (large) flake and almost 50 per cent was +50 mesh (XL) which is "one of the highest values found in all worldwide flake graphite deposits".
The average graphitic carbon ("Cg") content was 97.5 per cent which is a very high purity level for concentrates produced by flotation alone.
The expansion rates for all large size fractions were significantly above industry norms. For +80 mesh (large) and +50 mesh (XL) flake they were 490 and 540 ml/g respectively. Industry standards for "good" expandable graphite are minimum 250 ml/g and 350 ml/g for +80 mesh and +50 mesh respectively.
The oxidation resistance of the graphite is remarkably high making it very suitable for refractories and other hot environment applications.
The bulk and tap density of practically all screen sizes is higher than the average of graphite concentrates from other sources which is desirable for most applications.
Attritioning (polishing) increased the carbon content in all size fractions and in the smallest fraction (-100 mesh) the increase was enormous. After attritioning, all sizes were well over 98 per cent Cg which is an excellent result, and 99 per cent Cg was achieved in one test. There was little flake size degradation.
Concentrate purity easily reached 99.63 per cent Cg using standard acid purification techniques, demonstrating that Bisset Creek graphite is amenable to upgrading for the LiB and other high purity markets.

CIMA replied the topic: Northern Graphite Closes Royalty Financing
July 16, 2020) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (the "Company" or "Northern") has closed the previously announced sale of a one per cent gross revenue royalty ("GRR") on its Bissett Creek Project to Electric Royalties Ltd. ("ELEC") for $500,000 in cash and two million common shares of ELEC (the "Consideration Shares"). Half of the Consideration Shares are subject to a 12 month hold period and half to an 18 month hold period. Under the terms of the agreement ELEC also has a two-year option to acquire an additional half of one per cent GRR by paying $750,000, of which up to 25 per cent can be paid in ELEC shares. Northern has the option to buy back half of one per cent of the initial GRR at any time after 12 months by returning the Consideration Shares or paying $1.5 million in cash.

Gregory Bowes, CEO of Northern, commented that: "Bissett Creek is a high margin project and the sale of a small royalty has very little effect on its economics. The proceeds provide a non-dilutive source of funding while the Company continues to wait for a turnaround in graphite prices. The World Bank recently estimated that annual graphite production will ultimately have to increase 500 per cent to meet the demands of the electric vehicle and energy storage markets. This is the largest projected increase of any of the battery minerals. And there are no new graphite mines currently under construction." He added that: "We are happy to support ELEC in bringing more attention to the electric metals/minerals space by selling a royalty on what we believe is one of the world's highest quality, undeveloped graphite projects."

Brendan Yurik, CEO of Electric Royalties Ltd., commented that: "We are excited to become a financial partner to Northern through a non-dilutive royalty financing given its project is conveniently located in Canada in easy transportation distance to announced new battery factories and has a long mine life with high quality graphite for battery and industrial uses. We are also very pleased to welcome Gregory Bowes to our Advisory Board."

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.
