- April 19th, 2021

South Star Mining (TSXV:STS, OTCQB:STSBF) has launched its campaign on the Investing News Network

South Star Mining (TSXV:STS, OTCQB:STSBF) advances its flagship asset for production readiness to contribute to filling the global graphite demand. It currently operates its flagship Santa Cruz graphite project in the best region worldwide to be developing a new graphite project. Brazil currently produces upwards of 90,000 tonnes of graphite on an annual basis and has a significant internal demand for the product, which advantageously positions South Star as a first mover in the South American graphite production space.

“This is a production story, it’s not something that’s going to take years to come to life. We have 12 months of construction and commissioning already scheduled,” stated South Star CEO Richard Pearce.
