GRAPHITE: Great Lakes Graphite material tested for battery market

TORONTO – Great Lake Graphite says is has hired Coulometrics LLC, a leading provider of energy storage consulting and advanced battery component manufacturing, to evaluate its flake graphite concentrate for its suitability for lithium ion battery applications. The flake concentrate will also be evaluated for its suitability for conversion to a premium grad spherical purified graphite for the same market.

The company says that initial test results received from Coulometrics support the high performance of the natural flake graphite material from Great Lakes Graphite that meets or exceeds the performance standards needed for use as a lithium ion battery anode material for the evaluated graphite properties.

Great Lakes Graphite is advancing the Lochaber graphite project east of Buckingham, QC. The mineral resource statement filed in 2015 estimates the property contains 4.09 million inferred tonnes grading 4.01% Cg, containing 362 million lb of graphitic carbon.
