The Graphite Boom is Just Starting


Graphite is quietly emerging as a strategic industrial material in short supply, similar to the rare earth commodities. Years of underinvestment in new supplies, and growing demand sources, have caused prices to rise sharply in the past few years. China, as the world's dominant supplier, has significantly curtailed exports in an attempt to exert greater control in the market. As a result, it's not entirely surprising that the EU named graphite as one of 14 critical materials along with the rare earth elements...

Speed the Way to PEA


Imagine the disappointment. While performing airborne electro-magnetic surveys in eastern Quebec in 1998, the Finnish company Outokumpu found many strong conductors. That raised their hopes for massive sulphides and, with visions of a base metals discovery dancing in their heads, they followed up with groundwork. All they found was graphite. But one company's trash is now another's treasure...
