Next Graphite Commences Bulk Screening for Graphite from Tailing Heaps

Next Graphite, Inc. (OTCQB: GPNE) today announced that it will begin bulk screening and testing of its on-site, 180,000 ton tailing heaps of graphite-bearing rock. The  tailing heap material will be tested to evaluate the size and purity of the contained natural flake graphite.

As quoted in the press release:

The installation of the screening operation at the Aukam Farm has been tested and is ready for operation. Graphite-bearing rock from the Company’s heaps will be screened starting on July 15. The screening is occurring under the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) currently being undertaken on the property. The oversized graphitic lump material and graphite fines will be tested for purity and deleterious elements, sorted and then retained on site in a stockpile for future processing. The setup, testing and use of the screening operation was completed one week ahead of schedule and is expected to screen and test 500 tons of material through August 30.

Next Graphite CEO, Cliff Bream, said:

This begins the important stage of our Phase II testing we recently announced. While the initial results of our Phase 1 testing were encouraging, we will adhere to the highest standards in the market and continually evaluate the size and purity of the natural flake graphite on our property. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality natural flake graphite to the market our mine can produce.
