Graphite companies attending PDAC will include Callinex Mines, Canada Strategic, Energizer Resources, Focus Graphite, Zenyatta Ventures and more.
The 2015 PDAC International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange is fast approaching, and with over 550 exhibitors attending, it will be tough for investors to map out their time. With that in mind, Resource Investing News has assembled lists of key companies attending across a variety of sectors.
Here’s a look at some of the graphite companies that will be at the show:
- Alabama Graphite (TSXV:ALP) — Flake graphite exploration and development company Alabama Graphite owns two projects in Alabama: Coosa and Bama. According to the company, the region previously produced graphite.
- Callinex Mines (TSXV:CNX) — Callinex is currently exploring its Neuron graphite property in Northern Manitoba. Its other projects, Pine Bay, Flin Flon and Island Lake, are also located there. Most recently the company provided an overview of exploration targets for Pine Bay and Flin Flon.
- Canada Strategic Metals (TSXV:CJC) — Canada Strategic has a large portfolio of Quebec-based graphite properties. However, most recently it began a drilling campaign of a minimum of 2,000 meters at its Sakami gold project.
- Energizer Resources (TSX:EGZ) — Madagascar-focused Energizer was in the news earlier this month when it released the results of a feasibility study for its Molo graphite deposit. CEO Richard Schler described it as a “significant milestone.”
- Focus Graphite (TSXV:FMS) — Focus bills its Lac Knife project as being the most advanced battery-grade graphite project in North America. In a news release put out this week, the company said its coated spherical graphite shows “superior electrochemical performance” when compared to commercial grades of synthetic graphite used for lithium-ion batteries.
- Northern Graphite (TSXV:NGC) — Northern Graphite has a 100-percent interest in the Bissett Creek deposit, and states on its website that it’s the only public company with a true, large-flake deposit, a bankable feasibility study and its major environmental permit.
- Zenyatta Ventures (TSXV:ZEN) — Zenyatta’s Albany graphite deposit in Northeastern Ontario is always a contentious topic. The company said earlier this month that the graphite from the deposit could be used in lithium-ion batteries. Market watchers are currently awaiting the release of a preliminary economic assessment for Albany.
Those interested in the graphite space should be sure to keep an eye out for those companies on the floor. PDAC will be held from March 1 to 4, 2015 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
