Hexagon Resources Ltd. (ASX:HXG) provided the latest results from the current test work program being completed at its McIntosh graphite project in Western Australia.
As quoted in the press release:

  1. McIntosh graphite concentrate contains a significant proportion of larger flake sizes with 85% of flake greater than 180 microns (Large, Jumbo and Super Jumbo). This opens up significant commercial opportunities that had not been previously pursued.
  2. Systematic mineralogical review, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) scans and multi-element assay profiles confirm the ore type is clean and simple to process, yielding high-grade graphite concentrates.
  3. New parternship with a well credentialed US corporation which specialises in graphite-battery technologies across the value chain from research, test work and commercial battery cell manufacturing.
  4. Next phase of downstream processing test work is to focus on graphite expansion and non-chemical purification of the graphite concentrate. This additional processing will focus on production of an ultra-pure, graphite concentrate which opens opportunities to produce a portfolio of premium priced products for all of the planned 100ktpa concentrate production.
  5. Hexagon’s product and marketing strategy has progressed from producing one high-grade “Small” flake sized concentrate as feed-stock into the Chinese dominated spherical graphite market to focus on more niche markets for higher purity graphite materials suitable for a range of battery types and battery applications as well as other uses for the larger flake products including the expandable graphite sectors and for a variety of advanced metallurgical applications.
