READ: Peninsula Mines testing value-added spherical graphite processing capability in Korea

Peninsula’s primary focus is to serve the large lithium-ion battery industry in South Korea with quality battery-grade flake graphite mined and processed in-country.

South Korea is the world’s largest producer of lithium-ion battery technology, in which graphite plays an important role.



Peninsula intends advancing its Korean flake-graphite projects to resource delineation and development and, at the same time, securing supply of high-quality, low-cost, graphite from other sources.

This will allow the company to establish offtake agreements with Korean graphite end users in the Li-ion battery and other high-technology graphite markets, including non-flammable building materials.

Positive test work

Grind and flotation tests on 50-kilogram samples from the Yongwon and Daewon projects produced results suggesting the graphite may be suitable for lithium-ion battery spherical graphite production.

Metallurgy is in progress for the Eunha and Gapyeong flake graphite projects while drilling planned for the projects will target maiden JORC graphite resources.
