Canadian graphite exploration and development company Big North Graphite has announced the completion of its first graphite sale.
The company recently sold 200t of amorphous graphite, mined from its Nuevo San Pedro mine and additional feed mines located in Sonora Mexico, to a Mexican buyer.
The graphite sold was a mine-run, semi-processed product, comprising a 3/4 inch minus size, yielding an average grade of 68% Cg, and was processed at the company’s processing facility located near La Colorada, Mexico.
Big North began test mining at the Nuevo San Pedro project in May 2013.
Big North president Spiro Kletas said that the initial sale demonstrates the significant demand for amorphous graphite.
"As amorphous graphite is the largest segment of the natural graphite market by tonnage, our goal now is to grow our amorphous graphite mining and sales business for our shareholders," Kletas added.
