Northern Graphite Corp. (OTCQX:NGPHF) announced that it has created a proprietary process for purifying concentrates from its Bissett Creek graphite project, located in Eastern Ontario. The company says it has “consistently and economically achieved 99.95%+C purity levels” in independent laboratory and bench-scale testing.

As quoted in the press release:

Northern Graphite has completed bulk sample and pilot plant testing which provided a representative sample of the concentrates that will be produced from the commercial process. Extensive laboratory scale testing on these concentrates resulted in a process that successfully purified micronized, spherical and flake graphite to 99.95%+C levels. This process has subsequently been tested in bench scale models of commercial equipment and spherical graphite with 99.95%+C purity has been consistently produced. Flake graphite purities as high as 99.9%C have been achieved at the bench scale and further optimization work is ongoing.

Companies that Northern Graphite worked with in perfecting the purification process included Kingston Process Metallurgy Inc., Hazen Research, Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems, Harper International Corp., Nara Machinery Co. Ltd., AAAmachine Japan Inc. and the National Research Council of Canada.
