Focus Graphite talks superfine graphite production

2018-11-13 15:20 ET - News Release

Mr. Gary Economo reports


Focus Graphite Inc. is excited by the successful results of its efforts to advance the production of superfine, high-performance graphite using its proprietary processing technology. Already a source of high-grade graphite, suitable for use across a wide range of technology applications from energy storage to biomedicine, Focus Graphite is excited by the opportunity to expand its range of high-grade graphite.

Over the last four years, Focus Graphite has embarked on an intensive value-added product development and testing program. This has resulted in a number of product announcements, including the introduction of high-performing coated spherical graphite, highly conductive graphite for cathodes and the introduction of new superfine grades of spherical graphite -- all of which have been based on Focus Graphite's proprietary thermal process that purifies graphite without the use of chemicals. For further details on the company's product development and testing programs, please see the EVS30 white paper presented in Stuttgart, Germany, in October, 2017, on the website.

Typically, the large flakes hold more value for producers because they are much easier and less expensive to purify. The smaller flakes are typically sold off as industrial material and generally hold a much lower value in relation to its larger counterpart. Focus Graphite's processing technology provides an effective method for refining these smaller flakes into superfine, high-grade graphite, which is ideal for use in lithium-ion batteries and other energy storage applications. With growing market demand for reliable sources of high-grade graphite to build the next generation of lithium-ion batteries, Focus Graphite's proprietary process for refining superfine high-grade graphite inherently increases the value of smaller flakes to a level on par with or above their larger counterparts. The net effect is an increase in the overall valuation for the total graphite load.

Focus Graphite is well poised with its history of technological successes designing processes that have led to superior-performing coated spherical graphite for use in battery anodes and high-performing expanded graphite for use in lithium-ion battery cathodes.

Gary Economo, chief executive officer of Focus Graphite, stated, "We are extremely excited by the strides that we've made in developing a proprietary process that not only increases the overall value across a higher percentage of our graphite material, but also provides a new, innovative methodology for increasing capacity today to better supply the energy demands of the technologies of tomorrow."

About Focus Graphite Inc.

Focus Graphite is an advanced exploration and mining company with an objective of producing graphite concentrate at its wholly owned Lac Knife flake graphite deposit located 27 kilometres south of Fermont, Que. In a second stage, to meet Quebec stakeholder interests of transformation within the province and to add shareholder value. Focus is evaluating the feasibility of producing value-added graphite products, including battery-grade spherical graphite.

Focus Graphite is a technology-oriented graphite mining development company with a vision for building long-term, sustainable shareholder value. Focus also holds a significant equity position in graphene applications developer Grafoid Inc.
