March 28th, 2019 – CIM Toronto Branch Luncheon with Eric Desaulniers
March 28 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$50
Eric Desaulniers, President & CEO and Director of Nouveau Monde Graphite will be speaking on:
Nouveau Monde Is Developing The First All Electric Open Pit Mine In The World at The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto, ON M5H 2R1 from 12 noon to 2 p.m.
Nouveau Monde Graphite Inc. (“NMG”) is a listed company trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX-V) under the symbol NOU. NMG owns the Matawinie graphite Property (“Property”). The Property consists of 250 map-designated claims forming nine (9) main claim blocks. The property is fully owned by NMG and is spread over an area of approximately 75 km by 45 km. This mining area is located approximately six (6) km south-west of the community of Saint-Michel-des-Saints, 120 km north of the city of Montreal as the crow flies.
The primary mission of NMG is to become a leading producer of graphite, anode material for Li-Ion batteries and other value-added graphite products, while having the lowest environmental footprint of the industry and with a view to sustainable development for the Upper Matawinie region.
As result, NMG intends to develop world-class operations at its site in Saint-Michel-des-Saints by strategic integration of the mining and mining industry’s latest technological innovations in mining and processing; all in a perspective aiming at a carbon-neutral project with the highest environmental standards.
In this context and based on NMG’s mission, we believe that the Matawinie graphite project represents an exceptional opportunity for NMG to not only position itself as a leader in the mining industry in terms of environmental footprint and sustainable development, but also to make the Matawinie project a “global technology showcase” to create a significant marketing potential with its future customers. There is no doubt that the current shift of the mining industry towards these goals of low environmental footprint projects will be a common reality in just a few years.
