Flake Graphite from Lamboo’s McIntosh Achieves 96.1-percent TC

- November 6th, 2013

Lamboo Resources Ltd. (ASX:LMB) announced that metallurgical beneficiation of flake graphite from its McIntosh project has achieved high concentrate grades of 96.1-percent TC “with trace element contents below the level of detection.” That means the material is of high purity.

Lamboo Resources Ltd. (ASX:LMB) announced that metallurgical beneficiation of flake graphite from its McIntosh project has achieved high concentrate grades of 96.1-percent TC “with trace element contents below the level of detection.” That means the material is of high purity.

As quoted in the press release:

A significant goal of the metallurgical testing is, not only to produce high concentrate flake graphite, but also to produce a product that will potentially satisfy the large and increasing demands of the lithium battery industry as well as burgeoning high technology uses. Nanotechnology research has identified that utilising fine flake graphite could provide the breakthrough for fast charge batteries. High purity flake graphite required for this process can command premium prices as it demands specifications that have been difficult to achieve to date with natural flake graphite.

Dr. Craig Rugless, technical director at Lamboo, commented:

The McIntosh Project is living up to its potential to become a major flake graphite producer in Australia. It is gratifying that testwork has produced excellent results after a single re-grind and using standard metallurgical techniques to preserve the flake graphite required by potential high-tech customers.
