Focus Graphite Inc.

Focus Graphite Inc. is a midtier junior mining development company, a technology solutions supplier and a business innovator. The company aims to become one of the lowest-cost producers of technology graphite in the world. Focus is the sole owner of the high-grade, high-purity Lac Knife graphite project deposit near Fermont, Quebec. Lac Knife, the company's flagship property, is a crystalline flake graphite resource containing an NI-43-101-compliant resource of 8.1 Mmt in all categories grading at 16% graphite. The property has excellent infrastructure, with access to low-cost electricity, major roads, airports, two railroads and access to deep-water shipping terminals.

Expert Comments:

"With so many potential uses for graphite being discovered in labs, the future for graphite, both synthetic and natural, remains positive. I think the optimal junior mining graphite opportunities going forward will be those that have worked to establish their own supply chains, such as Focus Graphite Inc." read more >

"Focus Metals Inc. owns one of higher grade Canadian graphite projects, Lac Knife in Quebec, which is a well advanced, large resource with excellent purity, nice size distribution. The company has an offtake agreement, a superb location and quality management."

Ben Kramer-Miller, Seeking Alpha (12/4/14)
"Focus Graphite Inc. just announced that it has filed its environmental and social impact assessments with the Quebec government for its Lac Knife project. . .with this development and the recent feasibility study, the Lac Knife project is the most advanced of the major flake-graphite projects, and for this reason I think it has a distinct advantage going forward. The project will be highly economical even if the graphite price falls, and it offers significant leverage should it rise."

"Focus Graphite Inc. just announced that it has entered into a predevelopment agreement with the Uashat Mak Mani Utenam Innu First Nation. This agreement ensures that the company will take the tribe's needs into consideration when developing its final plans for building its Lac Knife project. . .this is a crucial development insofar as we have seen a lot of local opposition to mining projects."

"The only company with an offtake agreement for graphite thus far is Focus Graphite Inc. and that's with a Chinese company. Like most commodities, China continues to accumulate supply. . . Focus Graphite recently announced the results of its feasibility study on the Lac Knife project, and it is really part of a technology conglomerate. Focus is the only North American graphite company with an offtake agreement and it successfully tested upgrading the Lac Knife graphite to battery grade. Its sister company, Stria Lithium Inc., is working on a proprietary process to produce pure lithium at reduced cost. . . Focus also owns a stake in Grafoid, a graphene development company that recently acquired 75% of Braille Battery Inc., a leader in the development and sales of high-performance, ultralight lithium-ion batteries used in IndyCar, NASCAR, and Formula 1. . .Focus has to get mine financing. Its offtake agreement is basically for half its planned production, which certainly gives it the option to strike a second offtake agreement. That would be the next step, either the second offtake agreement or some other type of mine financing." read more >

"Grafoid Inc., of which Focus Graphite Inc. owns just under 20%, just finalized its CA$1.2 million acquisition of ALCERECO in an all-stock deal. . .of the late-stage Canadian graphite companies, I continue to believe Focus is the best positioned, and its potential liquidity related to its Grafoid holdings reinforces this conviction."
