Elcora Resources Corp. (TSXV:ERA) announced that SGS Canada Inc. is conducting metallurgical tests “to determine the preferred processing circuit” for graphite from the company’s Sri Lanka-based Sakura mine.

As quoted in the press release:

The preferred circuit will minimize processing damage to the graphite crystal morphology (i.e. damage to the graphite flakes) during processing while optimizing the flake expandability and ultimately enabling its subsequent conversion to graphene.

Troy Grant, president and CEO of Elcora, commented:

We are excited to take this forward step. Our corporate plan is to position Elcora to deliver premium graphite and, ultimately, graphene product to end users. The ability to deliver downstream will set the Company apart from its peers, and is consistent with the vertically integrated business strategy that we are pursuing for benefit of shareholders and stakeholders.
