About Northern Graphite
Northern owns 100% of the Bissett Creek graphite deposit which is located in the southern part of Canada between the cities of North Bay and Ottawa, and 15 km from the Trans-Canada highway. It has the benefit of ready access to labour, supplies, equipment, natural gas and concentrate transportation. Bissett Creek is an advanced stage project with a Feasibility Study and its major mining permit. Operational permitting is well advanced and the Company is in a position to make a construction decision subject to full project financing.
An independent study estimated that Bissett Creek will have the highest margin of any existing or proposed graphite deposit. This is due to simple metallurgy, the high purity, large flake nature of its concentrates and the very favorable location. These factors enable the Company to start with a project that has a realistic production rate relative to the size of the existing market, a reasonable capital cost and is economic at current prices. Substantial measured and indicated resources that have already been drilled off and the Company intends to expand production as the market grows.
