Graphite One Resources Inc. - Advancing the Graphite Creek Deposit in Alaska, USA

Graphite One Resources Inc. – Advancing the Graphite Creek Deposit in Alaska, USA


Graphite One Resources Inc. (TSXV:GPH, OTCQX:GPHOF) is a Vancouver, British Columbia-based mineral exploration company focused on identifying, acquiring and exploring high-potential projects ready for rapid advancement in the graphite market. Graphite One has defined America’s largest high-quality graphite deposit, the Graphite Creek Deposit strategically located in Alaska with direct ocean access to the high-tech American hub and Asian markets.

Recent survey and drill results at Graphite Creek show large-flake, high-purity graphite exposed at surface. The company expects to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on the Graphite Creek property by the end of 2016, and to complete a Bankable Feasibility Study by the second quarter of 2018.

The company’s naturally occurring STAX (Spheroidal, Thin, Aggregate and eXpanded) graphite offers an advantage when it comes to creating graphite for lithium-ion battery, energy storage and mobile technology manufacturers. The burgeoning technology-grade graphite market is only beginning to open up as green technology takes more precedence globally.

In May 2015, Graphite One entered into a definitive long-term lease agreement with Kougarok LLC for its 24 unpatented federal mining claims at Graphite Creek.

Graphite One recently raised $1.3 million in financing, and announced a new round of financing in October 2016.

Investment Highlights: 

  • Indicated Mineral Resource of 17.95 Mt at 6.3 percent Cg and an Inferred Resource of 154.36 Mt of 5.7 percent Cg, both at 3 percent COG, makes the Graphite Creek deposit the largest published graphite resource in the United States.
  • Upcoming PEA on the Graphite Creek property expected by the end of 2016.
  • Recent completion of a $1.3 million round of financing.
  • Excellent potential for low-cost mining, high-grade and near surface.
  • Graphite One’s STAX graphite has potential for exceptional processing, higher yields and improved performance.
  • Potential for a multi-million tonne target of 235 – 492 Mt with grade between 4.2 percent and 7.9 percent graphite.
  • Large-flake, high-purity graphite exposed at surface.
  • Optimal geological environment conducive to an open-pit mining configuration.
  • Tidewater gives access to American and Asian high-tech markets.

Key Property

The Graphite Creek Project

The Graphite Creek Project is comprised of 129 claims totaling 6,799 hectares on the Seward Peninsula of Alaska, 65 kilometres north of Nome. Mineralization at the property is characterized by coarse crystalline, or large-flake, graphite (greater than 80 mesh) within graphite-bearing schists. Graphite mineralization is exposed at surface. The large-flake graphite occurs as disseminations and high-grade segregations and lenses in distinctive garnet-bearing quartz biotite schists and biotite schists. The host schist is continuous over 18 kilometers of strike length, based on mapping and geophysics.

Results from a 2012 drill program, as well as mapping, prospecting and geophysical surveying, have further confirmed graphite mineralization at surface. Mineralization where drilling occurred covers an area of at least 5.5 square kilometers, representing about 12 percent of the total strike length.  The width and depth of mineralization confirmed by drilling are in excess of 250 meters. There is a potential deposit size of 235 – 492 million tonnes at average grades between 4.2 percent and 7.9 percent graphite.

Graphite One Resources Inc. - Advancing the Graphite Creek Deposit in Alaska, USA

In early July 2012, Graphite One Resources completed the airborne survey for the Graphite Creek Project. Based on the presence of a strong Electromagnetic conductor, the survey was extended to the northeast by 4.5 kilometers, which was an additional 309 line kilometers totaling 999 line kilometers. As the EM conductor that is coincident with graphite occurrences is now more than 18 kilometers in strike length, this increases the potential for the discovery of a large tonnage, high-grade graphite deposit.

In May 2015, Graphite One entered into a definitive long-term lease agreement with Kougarok LLC for its 24 unpatented federal mining claims at Graphite Creek. The agreement includes an advance royalty of US$30,000, and US$30,000 payable annually until 2019. The royalty is to increase US$10,000 annually after 2019 until production begins.

America’s Largest High-Quality Graphite Deposit

Graphite One released an updated Resource Estimate for its Graphite Creek Project in March 2015 of 17.95 million tonnes indicated, grading 6.3 percent graphitic carbon, and 154.36 Mt inferred with 5.7 percent graphite, using a three-percent cut-off grade. A drill program completed in October 2014 increased the vertical and lateral drill spacing along a 730-meter strike length of the 4.8-kilometer long deposit. Drilling results moved a portion of the previous January 2014 resource estimate from inferred to indicated resource status, providing the basis for the project’s initial PEA.

The acronym STAX stands for Spheroidal, Thin, Aggregate and eXpanded naturally occurring morphologies in graphite sourced from Graphite Creek. Spheroidal shapes are for lithium-ion batteries, thin flakes for premium alkaline batteries, aggregate flakes for lithium-ion batteries and expanded flakes are for flame-retardant materials. Coin cell tests showed little change in reversible discharge capacity and performance between coated and uncoated spherical graphite (SPG), while results confirmed high performance, repeatability and stability, making STAX a potential answer for high-powered electric vehicle batteries.

“These first coated coin cell results indicate that our C-SPG maintained high reversible capacity, while improving efficiency as measured by ICL”, said Anthony Huston, CEO of Graphite One. “The results were impressive when compared to those for typical coated natural graphite and a top synthetic graphite.”
