East Kimberley Graphite Project

Strategic Entry into the Graphite Market

The Company has announced a strategic entry into the large flake graphite market by securing a large ground position in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. The Kimberley region is a proven province for high purity, large flake graphite.

The market for large and jumbo flake graphite is highly concentrated and potential synthetic graphite substitutes are comparatively very expensive to produce. Both the US and EU Governments have classified graphite as a “critical material” for industrial and national security purposes.

The East Kimberley project offers an attractive entry into the graphite market:

  • Proven district for high carbon purity, large flake graphite;
  • The significant scale (up to 20 kilometres strike extent) of the Corkwood graphite target identified from geological and geophysical anomalies;
  • Situated in a well-established mining district, 240 kilometres south of an export port at Wyndham;
  • The region has excellent infrastructure including roads, airports, and labour;
  • First world country with stable tax and royalties, and mining law; and
  • Low cost entry via tenement applications and option-to-purchase agreements.
