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:

"Focus Graphite Inc., which has the Lac Knife project in Quebec, has done much testing on coated spherical graphite. This is an example of having a strategy beyond the resource and looking at serving a market from the user perspective. It is also another company that is looking to capitalize a battery sector that is evolving." read more >

"I follow Focus Graphite Inc. on our Advanced Graphite Projects Index; it has the Lac Knife deposit In Quebec. It is at the feasibility study level. Focus is working to determine if it is possible to turn the material from its project into battery-grade graphite. . .the driver here is energy storage. There's been a lot of buzz since Tesla Motors announced its plan to build a "Gigafactory" for the production of a variety of parts and components including the lithium-ion batteries required to power its vehicles and others. Tesla's stated goal is to source all of its materials from North America. The production of hundreds of thousands of vehicles per year means that we are going to build batteries using anodes that contain graphite. The questions is: Will it be natural graphite or synthetic? If companies can demonstrate that they can consistently deliver a product that meets Tesla's needs at a cost that is competitive to synthetic graphite, they may have a winning graphite project. That immediately puts the focus on the most advanced projects in North America. Focus Graphite is one of those companies. If it can scale up and do what it says it can do, it could certainly be a contender." read more >

"Focus Graphite Inc. has been moving its Lac Knife project forward through community relations efforts and financing efforts. . .the Lac Knife project's advanced state, its high-grade resource and its strategic location in a mining region suggest to me that this project has a relatively high chance of moving forward to production."

"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."
