Volt Resources (ASX: VRC), (“Volt” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that ongoing testwork on Namangale North graphite concentrate by the German metallurgical laboratory, which previously reviewed Namangale South samples, confirms its suitability for making expandable graphite for a wide range of downstream applications.
This is timely as it follows on from the four recent offtake and cooperation agreements signed with Chinese groups which are primarily focused on expandable graphite.
- Testwork on Namangale North concentrate highlighted its suitability for producing expandable graphite
- Enhances the scalability and commercial viability of the entire Namangale deposit as a primary expandable graphite supplier
- Excellent expansion results for fine flake and powder
Inaugural testwork undertaken on Namanagle North graphite concentrate by the German metallurgical laboratory, which previously tested Namangale South samples, confirmed its suitability for producing expandable graphite for a wide variety of applications including flame retardant building material, graphite foil and flame retardant textiles which require finer expandable flake and powder graphite.
