Haben sie den letzten 5-Jahresplan der Kommunistischen Partei Chinas gelesen?
Nein? Genau das sollten Sie aber tun. Zumindest wenn es nach Mining-Legende Robert
Friedland geht. Denn auf eben diese Frage von ihm hob sich gestern keine einzige Hand
auf seinem Vortrag auf der Mining INDABA in Kapstadt. Dabei steht laut Friedland darin
alles, was man als Investor wissen muss. Unter anderem, dass man in den nächsten 3 Jahren
1,5 Millionen Elektroautos auf den Straßen haben will. Damit soll die hohe (und weiter steigende)
Ölabhängigkeit eingedämmt werden. Circa 60% der Ölimporte Chinas werden als
Kraftstoff in Automobilen und LKWs verbrannt. Dass jedes Elektroauto mehr Kupfer und
mehr kritische Rohstoffe benötigt als herkömmliche Fahrzeuge, brauchen wir treuen Lesern
nicht erzählen.

The Critical Metals Report Interview with Ryan Fletcher (1/24/12) "One company that I quite like is Standard Graphite Corp., which has acquired a portfolio of projects in Ontario and Québec. But more importantly, the company added Antoine Fournier to the team. A geologist, he was part of the field team that discovered the project that Focus is advancing, Lac Knife. Standard Graphite. . .has a market cap of about $5M, in comparison to the $30-60M for some of the bigger players. There's a lot of leverage for investors and a lot of opportunity when you take something that has a bit of information with the right team and make a new discovery. You can create a lot of value under those circumstances. Standard Graphite will be working to do just that."

Graphit - Der unerkannte Rohstoff
Geschrieben von Redaktion • 26. Januar 2012

Graphit kennen die meisten Anleger aus dem Bleistift, dem Tennisschläger oder vom Golfschläger. Viel mehr Anwendungsmöglichkeiten fallen zunächst nicht ein. Doch die Einsatzmöglichkeiten von Graphit haben sich weiter entwickelt, die Vielfalt tritt immer deutlicher zu Tage.


Sehr reines Graphit - Quelle: Wikipedia

Der Rohstoff leitet Hitze und Elektrizität, er ist korrosions- und hitzebeständig. Damit ist er für die Stahl- und Autoindustrie besonders wertvoll. Dies sind bisher die Hauptkonsumenten von Graphit. Doch neue Anwendungsbereiche kommen hinzu. In neuartigen Batterien ist Graphit ein unverzichtbarer Bestandteil.

Bei einer Lithium-Ionen-Batterie besteht die Kathode aus Lithium, die Anode wird aus Graphit gefertigt. Diese Tatsache ist zumeist unbekannt, kann jedoch in Zukunft für einen Wachstumsschub sorgen. In verschiedenen Elektroautos von Chevrolet, Nissan und Tesla kommen diese Batterien ebenfalls zum Einsatz. Dies deutet an, wie groß die Wachstumsphantasien sein können.

Derzeit werden weltweit etwa 1,2 Millionen Tonnen Graphit benötigt. Für die kommenden Jahre sagen Experten einen Nachfrageboom voraus. Bis 2020 kann sich die nachgefragte Menge auf ein Mehrfaches erhöhen. Schätzungen gehen davon aus, dass allein für Lithium-Ionen Batterien am Ende der Dekade jährlich bis zu 1,6 Millionen Tonnen Graphit benötigt werden. Dies zeigt die Dimensionen des Wachstums. Der Preis folgt diesem Wachstumsschub nur langsam. Jahrelang dümpelte er vor sich hin, erst in den vergangenen Jahren hat er sich verdreifacht. Der Trend geht weiter nach oben.

Der Großteil der Graphitproduktion stammt bisher aus China. Etwa 70 Prozent der Lieferungen kommen aus dem asiatischen Land. Weitere große Förderer sind Indien, Kanada und Brasilien. Da aber China, wie auch bei anderen Rohstoffen, zuletzt höhere Steuern und Lizenzgebühren auf die Ausfuhr von Graphit gelegt hat, suchen Unternehmen verstärkt nach neuen Fundorten und alternativen Lieferanten.

Fündig werden kann man in Gebieten, die bestimmte geologische Voraussetzungen erfüllen. In Kanada finden sich solche Regionen in Ontario und Quebec, aber auch in Brasilien und Indien wird die Suche nach neuen Lagerstätten verstärkt. Der steigende Preis für Graphit kann Investoren dazu bringen, die Explorationstätigkeiten zu verstärken.

Was zu graphit. Auszug aus goldseiten.de


Was das mit Graphit zu tun hat? Die Grundausstattung jedes Reaktors dieser Uentrop-Größe würde bis zur Inbetriebnahme ca. 5.000 bis 6.000 Tonnen Graphit benötigen und der Ersatz ermüdeter Kugeln in Tennisballgröße würde pro Reaktor je nach Größe nochmals jährlich so zwischen 500 und 2.000 Tonnen Graphit erfordern.

Das mag Zukunftsmusik sein, aber ich rate Ihnen, halten Sie in dieser Richtung die Augen offen. Sehen Sie nach China und Indien und gewöhnen Sie ich daran, dass dort wohl die Zukunft stattfindet. Bauen Inder und Chinesen die Kugelhaufen-Hochtemperatur-Reaktoren, wird sich schlagartig die Nachfrage nach Graphit erhöhen.

Wichtiger und zeitnäher sind aber die folgenden neuen Einsatzgebiete von Graphit. Da ist einerseits der Einsatz in den Anoden der Batterien, die die Energie für die Hybridfahrzeuge oder für die Voll-Elektrofahrzeuge liefern sollen. Im Gegensatz zu den vielen Meldungen über die enorme Bedeutung des Lithiums und der dann folgenden Flut von neuen Lithium-Explorationsgesellschaften werden zwei Fakten überhaupt nicht beachtet. Lithium gibt es wie den sprichwörtlichen Sand am Meer z.B. in den Salzlaken und Salzseen in Südamerika (ich war kürzlich da) und – und das ist noch wichtiger: Bei der Herstellung der neuen Lithium-Ionen-Batterien braucht man je nach Größe der Batterien für die Anode dieser Batterien zwischen dem Acht- und Zwanzigfachen mehr Graphit als Lithium." target="_blank" rel="nofollow ugc noopener">China hat sich mit der englischen Gesellschaft, die die Entwicklung der HTR auf eigene Rechnung fortgesetzt hat,- so hörte ich - in Verbindung gesetzt, um eine Übernahme der Konzeption für einige der vielen in China geplanten Reaktoren zu prüfen. Gleiche Bestrebungen werden von Indien und Korea gemeldet. Was hätte das für grundsätzliche Folgen? Die Kraftwerksbauer aus den "alten" Industriestaaten würden in die bekannte Röhre schauen müssen. Das wäre an sich noch zu verkraften, weil wir ohnehin nicht mehr an diesem Spiel beteiligt wären. Die in der letzten Zeit so schön für die Zukunft hochgerechneten Nachfragemengen nach Uran müssten revidiert werden, denn sowohl China als auch Indien verfügen nach den vorliegenden Statistiken über ausreichende Thoriumvorräte und -Lagerstätten (Thorium fällt sehr häufig bei der Produktion von Seltenen Erden als sogenanntes By-Product an) und für uns Deutsche würde es heißen, subventioniert haben wir die Entwicklung mit Milliardenbeträgen, aber dank politscher Weitsicht haben wir wieder einmal die Chance vertan, eine technologische Speerspitze zu werden. Dass zudem noch an einer der Kaderschmieden Chinas, an der Tsinghua-Universität intensiv an der Weiterentwicklung der HTR-Technologie geforscht wird, bestätigt meine Vermutungen.

Überstzung man kanns lesen.

Die Investoren müssen tun ihre Due Diligence bei Junior-Rohstoffunternehmen mit oberflächennahen, hochgradigen Ablagerungen große Flocke

Irgendwann zwischen 1500 und 1565 eine große Graphit-Lagerstätte wurde in Cumbria, England entdeckt. Da der Graphit war extrem reinen und festen es könnte leicht in Stöcken gesägt werden. Der Graphit war eigentlich gedacht, um eine Form von Blei und Graphit genannt - lateinisch für Bleierz.

Die Mine wurde bald Ausleihbare befohlen, unter bewaffneter Bewachung von Königin Elisabeth gelegt werden, weil das "Blei" könnte verwendet werden, um die Formen für seine Armeen antreten Kanonenkugeln werden. Aber schwarz-Vermarkter geschafft, schmuggeln die Graphit für die weitere Verwendung in Bleistiften. Künstler aus der ganzen Welt bekannt ist schnell gelernt, die Qualitäten von Cumbria Graphit zu schätzen wissen, aber es war nicht bis 1795, dass Nicholas Conte zu Graphitpulver mit Ton zu mischen und zu feuern sie in einem Ofen gelernt, tatsächlich etwas zu machen mit der äquivalenten Qualität der Borrowables plumbago .

Heute Graphit (benannt nach dem griechischen Wort für "schreiben") wird die Aufmerksamkeit der Investoren, und für ein ebenso guter Grund, wie es einmal angezogen all jene Künstler vor 500 Jahren.

Kohlenstoff

Durch die Masse Kohlenstoff ist das vierthäufigste Element im Universum (nach Wasserstoff, Helium und Sauerstoff) und es ist der 15. häufigste Element in der Erdkruste. Kohlenstoff ist in allen bekannten Lebensformen und ist die zweite (Sauerstoff ist zuerst) am häufigsten vorkommende Element durch Masse - etwa 18,5% - in den menschlichen Körper.

Carbon ist der Stoff des Lebens, es ist das Fundament, die chemische Basis, von jedem Lebewesen auf der Erde, doch wegen seiner durchdringenden Vertrautheit wir alle halten es für selbstverständlich.

Da die Anleger könnten wir möchten, dass zu überdenken.

Allotrope sind bauliche Veränderungen eines Elements - die Kohlenstoffallotrope gehören:

• Diamond - Die Kohlenstoffatome sind zusammen in einem tetraedrischen Gitter Anordnung gebunden

• Fullerene - Die C-Atomen sind in kugelförmigen, rohrförmigen oder ellipsoide Formationen gebunden

• Graphit - Die Kohlenstoffatome sind zusammen in den Blättern von einem hexagonalen Gitter gebunden

• Graphen - Eine flache zweidimensionale Schicht aus Kohlenstoff-Atomen

Graphit

Graphit ist seit langem in der Luftfahrtindustrie verwendet worden, Automobil-, Sport-, Stahl und Kunststoffindustrie, sowie bei der Herstellung von Lager und Schmierstoffe. Graphit ist ein ausgezeichneter Leiter von Wärme und Strom, ist korrosions-und hitzebeständig und ist auch stark und leicht.

Derzeit sind die Automobil-und Stahlindustrie die größten Verbraucher von Graphit und der Nachfrage in beiden Branchen wird auf fünf Prozent pro Jahr steigen.

Die Stahlindustrie verwendet Graphit als Auskleidungen für Pfannen und Tiegeln, verwenden sie es in den Steinen, die Hochöfen und Linie, um den Kohlenstoffgehalt des Stahls zu erhöhen. Graphit hat bereits Asbest in der Automobil-Bremsbeläge und Bremsklötze ersetzt und wird für Dichtungen und Kupplung verwendeten Materialien. Sparks Stecker sind auch gemacht Einarbeitung von Graphit.

Aber die Nachfrage nach Graphitelektroden ist für andere Anwendungen gestiegen als auch, Flexible Graphit Blatt, Lithium-Ionen-und Vanadium-Batterien, Brennstoffzellen, Halbleiter, Kernkraft, Wind-und Solarenergie.

Grafoil

Grafoil ist flexibel Graphitplatten und einer der am schnellsten wachsenden Märkte Graphit. Flexible Graphit ist wünschenswert, Stopfbuchspackung und Dichtungen, deren Fähigkeit zur Abdichtung kommt von Lücken, durch die Flüssigkeit ausfließen.

Flexible Graphit-Produkte verfügen über wertvolle Eigenschaften:

Frei von Kriechen unter Dauerlast
Stabile von kryogenen Temperaturen weit unter Null auf Temperaturen weit über dem Schmelzpunkt der meisten Eisen-und NE-Metallen
Beständig gegen eine Vielzahl von korrosiven Stoffen
Nukleare Strahlung beständig, selbst wenn sie massive Dosen von Strahlung ausgesetzt
Fire-Safe in der Gegenwart von leicht flüchtigen Flüssigkeiten und extrem hohen Temperaturen

Kernkraft

Graphite spielt eine Schlüsselrolle in vielen aktuellen und künftigen, Kernreaktor-Designs. Die nächste Generation Kernreaktor (der INL-geführten Next Generation Nuclear Plant (NGNP) und anderen vorgeschlagenen Hochtemperatur-, Gas-Reaktoren) Temperaturen werden voraussichtlich bis zu 1.000 ° C in ihren Adern zu erreichen - Graphit, mit einem höheren Schmelzpunkt Punkt dann Stahl, nicht bis 3000 Grad Celsius verbrennen. Da Graphit hat eine riesige Kapazität wärmeabsorbierende es auch verwendet, um Kernbrennstoff im sicheren Temperaturbereich bei unerwarteten Ereignissen zu halten - nebenbei Graphit ist auch als Kühlkörper in Computern verwendet.

Chinas Kugelhaufenreaktoren (PBR) sind ein Graphit-moderierter-, Gas-Kernreaktor. Die Basis des PBR-Design ist die sphärischen (Billardkugel-sized) Brennelemente als Kieselsteine. In der PBR werden Tausende von Kieselsteinen angehäuft, um einen Reaktorkern zu schaffen. Die Kieselsteine ​​sind aus pyrolytischen Graphit (eine schützende Beschichtung, die Graphit moderiert das Tempo der Kernreaktionen) gemacht und sie enthalten Tausende von Mikrobrennstoffzellen Teilchen namens TRISO Partikel. Diese TRISO Kraftstoff-Partikel aus einem spaltbaren Material, wie 235 U. Diese Reaktoren werden durch nicht-explosive Gas Helium anstelle von je einem stetigen Quelle von Wasser gekühlt.

Beträchtliche Mengen an Graphit sind erforderlich, um den Reaktor beim Start laden - 3000 Tonnen und einem Anteil der Kugeln müssen jedes Jahr ersetzt werden, da der Brennstoff verbracht erfordern weitere 600 bis 1000 Tonnen Graphit pro Betriebsjahr. China verfügt über ein Betriebssystem Prototyp, baut jetzt zwei Gewerbeeinheiten und plant, 30 Pebble Bed in Betrieb befindliche Reaktoren bis zum Jahr 2020 haben.

Fuel Cells

Die beiden wichtigsten Arten von Brennstoffzellen - die phosphorsaure Brennstoffzelle (PAFC) und das Proton-Elektrolyt-Membran Brennstoffzelle (PEMFC) - derzeit in der Entwicklung stark auf graphitierten Kohlenstoff. PAFC sind für die stationäre Stromerzeugung (Primär-oder Backup-Stromversorgung für Remote-Standorte wie Mobilfunkmasten), während die PEMFC breites Interesse für den Einsatz in Transport-Anwendungen angezogen haben.

Eine Brennstoffzelle ist kein Batterie - ein Akku ist ein Energiespeicher, wird es stoppen Erzeugung von elektrischer Energie, wenn die chemischen Reaktanten verbraucht werden oder es muss wieder aufgeladen werden. Die Brennstoffzelle ist eine Energieumwandlungsvorrichtung, und elektrische Energie, solange dem Brennstoff und das Oxidationsmittel, mit den Elektroden zugeführt wird.

Mehr und mehr Brennstoffzellen-Anwendungen sind in der Entwicklung jedes Jahr und Brennstoffzellen-Technologie verlassen sich stark auf Graphit - die Protonen-Austausch-Brennstoffzelle (PEMFC) erfordert 80-100 Pfund Graphit pro Fahrzeug.

"Groß angelegte Brennstoffzellen-Anwendungen werden entwickelt, das könnte so viel Graphit verbrauchen wie alle anderen Nutzungen kombiniert." US Geological Survey

Thermische Solarkollektoren

Die größte Einschränkung von Solar-oder Photovoltaik (PV)-Panels ist, dass sie nur einen Bruchteil des Sonnenlichts, das auf sie trifft verwenden, schaltet sich der Rest der Sonnenlicht in Wärme um, die eigentlich weh tut die Leistung der Panels.

Eine Alternative, die Nutzung aller von der Sonne, darunter Lichtfrequenzen PVs nicht nutzen kann, machen kann, ist die Solarthermie-Kollektor - sie sammeln Wärme, mit der das Wasser zu kochen, um den Dampf der die Turbine, die den Strom erzeugt treibt machen wird.

Zur weiteren Erhöhung der Effizienz von Sonnenkollektoren, Nanopartikel - Teilchen ein Milliardstel Meter groß - werden in die Wärmeträgeröle sonst in solarthermischen Kraftwerken eingesetzt aufgenommen. In Laborversuchen Nanopartikel erhöht Wärme Sammlung Effizienz um bis zu 10 Prozent. 100 g von Nanopartikeln bietet die gleiche Wärme-sammelnde Fläche als ganzen Fußballplatz.

Graphit-Nanopartikeln sind sehr effizient Wärme Sammler.

Vanadium-Redox-Batterien

Wenn die Sonne nicht scheint und der Wind nicht weht weder Solar-oder Windenergie-Anlagen sind Stromerzeugung, müssen diese beiden grünen Energien Batterien, um die überschüssige Energie, die sie unter optimalen Bedingungen produzieren können gespeichert werden. Die Vanadium Redox Batterie (VRB) könnte die perfekte Antwort, wie sie sein:

Haben unbegrenzte Kapazität einfach durch eine Erhöhung der Größe ihrer Lagertanks
Kann links komplett für längere Zeit werden ohne negative Auswirkungen entladen
Viel geringer Wartungsaufwand
Kann durch einfaches Austauschen der Elektrolyt aufgeladen werden
Haben eine nominale ökologischen Fußabdruck

VRB erfordern auch die fast 300 Tonnen Lamellengraphit pro 1.000 Megawatt Speicherkapazität.

Standard Graphite Completes TDEM Survey on Little Bryan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 21, 2012) - Standard Graphite Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SGH) is pleased to announce that it has completed the TDEM Survey of the Little Bryan property. The interpretation of the airborne survey on the Little Bryan project has provided insights on the current mineralised zones and their extensions. The survey also outlined new significant potential graphite targets elsewhere on the project.

President and CEO Chris Bogart states, "Standard is extremely pleased by the EM survey on our Little-Bryan property, the first set of results from our graphite portfolio. Not only has it expanded potential graphite mineralization by several kilometres from the known graphitic trenches but has also outlined a second near-surface conductive trend lying approximately one kilometre to the North. This second conductor appears very continuous and extends for over 5km along strike in association with calc-silicates/marble rocks. We are very pleased with the results and are looking forward to the completion of the airborne survey on our remaining properties both in Ontario and Quebec."

Please click the following link for the EM Map for Little Bryan:

http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/LBryan.pdf.

The Little-Bryan Property is located some 140km of Ottawa in Renfrew County and consists of 15 claims covering some 2800ha. During the month of January 2012, an airborne TDEM survey conducted by Prospectair Geosurveys and was flown over the three (3) properties located in Ontario to evaluate the extent of the known occurrences and help in the discovery of new mineralization. These results will greatly improve Standard's ability to orient the fieldwork. This survey has been completed and the company is expecting to release the remaining results of the survey shortly.

Standard Graphite is currently preparing a spring exploration programs on its Ontario Projects scheduled to begin on April 1, 2012.

Antoine Fournier, P. Geo., manages Standard's exploration and development programs and is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. He supervised the preparation of the technical information in this release.

Standard Graphite starts survey over Quebec properties

2012-02-23 08:09 ET - News Release


This item is part of Stockwatch's value added news feed and is only available to Stockwatch subscribers.
Here is a sample of this item:

Mr. Chris Bogart reports

STANDARD GRAPHITE COMMENCES AIRBORNE EM SURVEY IN QUEBEC

Standard Graphite Corp. has commenced exploration on its Carheil, Sandy Lake, Sandy Northeast and River graphite properties. An airborne TDEM survey conducted by Aeroquest International Ltd. is currently being flown over the four properties located in Northern Quebec, and the results from this survey will serve to evaluate the extent of the known occurrences and help in the discovery of new mineralization.

Chris Bogart, president and chief executive officer, states: "We are excited to begin the first phase of exploration on our large portfolio of graphite properties in Quebec. Based on our recent successful EM survey in Ontario (news release dated Feb. 21, 2012), we are eagerly anticipating the results of this survey."

The airborne survey consists of flying some 930 line kilometres at low altitude to measure the bedrock conductivity (TDEM) and magnetic properties. Graphite is a mineral with unique physical properties and is well known for its high conductivity. The survey has been designed to optimize the response from potential conductors and to discriminate between the types of conductors. The TDEM instrument used in the airborne survey is equivalent although more powerful to the one used during the ground test. Results from the airborne survey are expected in March and will form the backbone of the coming prospecting, trenching and drilling programs planned in Quebec for 2012.

Big crowds were gathered all around the Standard Booth. Many of Vancouvers who's who of mining was there today, and it was standing room only. Yes alot of interest, but still very much under the radar of most investors.



SGH has alot of work to do, but are in the right place, with the right projects at the right time.

The Great Graphite Rush of 2012


Graphite prices have yet to go critical in 2012 remaining stable since late last year, but the same can’t be said for the mining stocks as Graphite Fever has gripped the mining community. New acquisitions are announced on a weekly basis and share prices of almost all the companies in this sector are taking off. If price action is any indication that there is growing interest in this sector, one only has to look as far as the share prices of the companies in the sector doubling, tripling and quadrupling in 6 weeks. The Graphite theme has started the year with a bang and will continue to gain traction and momentum as all the household names in the sector are moving at a torrid pace and will continue to do so for the next 18 months and most likely continue out on a 5 year cycle.

Opportunities like a rebirth of a sector don’t come around every day and to be in on the ground floor of this BOOM is something special and you should consider yourself lucky for you early adopters. The last sector that saw this type of excitement and share price appreciation was uranium. Although even uranium didn’t get off to the bang that graphite has in the last 6 weeks. One reason for this is that developing a graphite mine, no easy task in itself is so much easier than uranium or even lithium where many companies put a lot of it back in the ground because the real market could not support all the companies with plans to produce. Not so in the Graphite industry that is both 10 times larger than lithium and uranium markets with unprecedented growth expected not seen in either. If the graphite market doubles, that is a factor of 10 to the lithium market doubling or the uranium market doubling. Meaning all things constant, 10 times the mines will be needed when compared to either lithium or uranium. This long neglected sector that hasn’t seen any investment since Ballard in the early 2000’s has a long way to come back. You can’t even really call this mining sector with not one Canadian public company actually mining graphite.

Gentlemen start your engines, pick your favorite stocks or a basket of them and outperform all your friends who still haven’t heard of graphite or the BOOM that is happening in this sector. A year ago 1 in 20 had heard about graphite, now maybe 4 in 20 have heard about. There is still a lot of people to tell this story too. If you got graphite in your portfolio, it is going to outperform anything else this year as it is clear there is need for mines in this sector.

Further evidence is the amount of companies in the sector. Last summer there were 2… now there are at least 14 and counting.

Trading summer of 2011

1. Northern Graphite NGC-V
2. Focus Metals FMS-V

Acquired projects and actively exploring

3. Strike Graphite SRK-V
4. Standard Graphite (formerly Orocan) SGH-V
5. Lomiko Metals LMR-V
6. Solace Resources SOR-V
7. Cedar Mountain CED-V
8. Energizer Resources EGZ-T
9. Soldi Ventures SOV-V
10. GeoMega GMA-V
11. Greenlight Resources GR-V

Companies currently not trading or listed…

12. Mega Graphite (IPO March)
13. Tasex Capital (Flinders) TAX.p-V
14. High North (Canada Graphite) HN.p-V (IPO April)

There are companies that I have missed, but you can’t keep track of them all. NGC and FMS will remain the industry leaders while Standard Graphite, Lomiko, Cedar Mountain, Energizer, Solace and Strike are my early favorites in the next group down which is 2/3 of them. At this point in time it is hard to differentiate one from the other as it is early and all the projects now are similar to each other and are the best of the bunch and on par or close to as companies like Focus and Northern Graphite. People keep asking me which graphite stock is better? They are all good and any one of these companies in this list will be at least 100% high by next year, even the companies that are still not trading.

Standard Graphite: Topstart in 2012
http://www.financial.de/kolumnen/standard-graphite-topstart-…

Neue Trends entstehen oft im Umfeld von Messen. Und auf der Cambridge House Conference Ende Januar in Vancouver tauchte ein Rohstoff in zahlreichen Gesprächen immer wieder auf: Graphit.

Dieser High-Tech Rohstoff bietet viele Chancen – vor allem auch bei hochwertigen Anwendungen wie Lithium-Ionen-Akkus, Brennstoffzellen oder auch im weiten Feld der alternativen Energien wie Windkrafträdern oder Solarzellen.

In den vergangenen Jahren ist der Preis für eine Tonne hochwertiges Graphit von 500 Dollar auf rund 2.500 Dollar gestiegen. Interessant ist dabei vor allem: Der Preis ist trotz der Turbulenzen an den internationalen Finanzmärkten weiterhin hoch geblieben. Das zeigt die stabile Nachfrage und belegt auch das angespannte Angebot.

Da aber China große Teile der Produktion kontrolliert, kommt neuen Vorkommen außerhalb Chinas eine große Bedeutung zu. Das ist eine offensichtliche Parallele zu den Seltenen Erden.

Standard Graphite: Neuer Name – Neuer Trend

Eine neue Aktie in dem noch kleinen Sektor ist Standard Graphite (WKN: A1JTSS). Der kanadische Explorer startet jetzt mit insgesamt 12 Graphit-Projekten in Quebec und Ontario. Spannend ist: Diese Vorkommen befinden sich in Gegenden, in denen das großflockige und damit teure Graphit zu finden ist. Doch neben den Projekten hat Standard Graphite noch ein Ass im Ärmel: Das ist Antoine Fournier, der Chefgeologe des Unternehmens.

Ich habe Fournier schon vor einigen Wochen im Büro von Standard Graphite in Vancouver getroffen. Schon da erklärte er mir die nächsten Schritte des Explorationsprogramms für das erste Halbjahr 2012. Zunächst steht die weitere Entwicklung der Black Donald Liegenschaft auf dem Programm.

Fournier gehörte zu den Verantwortlichen bei der Entdeckung des Lac Knife Graphit Vorkommens, dass derzeit noch ein ganz entscheidender Teil des Portfolios von Focus Metals (WKN: A1C7E4) ist.

Doch dieses Unternehmen wird derzeit rund auf dem achtfachen Niveau von Standard Graphite gehandelt. Standard Graphite ist mit nur 22 Millionen Aktien und einer Marktkapitalisierung von rund 11 Mio. CAD eben noch am Anfang. Doch das kann alles sehr schnell gehen, denn bei Graphit geht die Entwicklung von Vorkommen sehr viel schneller als bei vielen anderen Rohstoffen. Mehr dazu schon bald an dieser Stelle.

16:46 | 23.02.2012
Standard Graphite: Jetzt läuft das Explorationsprogramm

Nun hat Standard Graphite (WKN: A1JTSS) den Beginn des detaillierten Geophysikprogramms bekannt gegeben. Das Programm enthält Flugvermessungen und EM-Gutachten und bezieht sich vorerst auf das Little Bryan Projekt.

Das ist eines der 12 Projekte im Portfolio von Standard Graphite. An diesem Projekt hält das Unternehmen 100% der Eigentumsrechte. Das ist ein relevanter Faktor, da so keine Lizenzabgaben und auch keine Nutzungsgebühren fällig sind. Das Little Bryan Projekt hat eine Größe von über 2.800 ha und liegt im Osten von Ontario, ca. 130 km von Ottawa (nordöstlich) entfernt; Little Bryan liegt ca. 130 km südwestlich von Northern Graphite’s Flaggschiff-Projekt Bisset Creek. Dabei handelt es sich um das am weitesten fortgeschrittene Projekt von allen aktiven Graphite Projekten derzeit in Ontario.

Das Little Bryan Projekt ist zwar generell als early stage einzustufen, doch hat es schon Ende der 1980er Jahre dort erste Explorationsarbeiten gegeben.

Die jetzt begonnenen detaillierten Geophysikprogramme (inkl. Flugvermessungen, EM-Begutachten) wurden im Rahmen der pre drilling works (Bohrvorbereitungsprogramme) durchgeführt und sollen neue potentielle Graphit-Mineralisierungen entdecken bzw. bereits vermutete erweitern.

Erste erfolgreiche Ergebnisse der Flugvermessungen

Dabei hat Standard Graphite nun erfolgreiche Ergebnisse der Flugvermessungen vermeldet, die auf dem gesamten Little Bryan Projekt durchgeführt wurden – das sind die ersten Vermessungsergebnisse von Standard Graphite von den Ontario-Projekten und diese unterstreichen sofort signifikantes Explorationspotential.
Standard Graphite hatte bereits vor der aktuellen Pressemitteilung einen mineralisierten Korridor im Süden des Little Bryan Projekts indiziert und dieser wurde durch die aktuellen Vermessungen jetzt bestätigt.
Die hohen elektromagnetischen Ergebnisse, welche in den zwei Trends gefunden wurden, lassen auf zahlreiche, aussichtsreiche Graphit-Bohrziele schließen. Es ist dabei besonders hervorzuheben, dass die Ergebnisse den Schluss nahelegen, dass Großteile der indizierten Graphit-Mineralisierungen bereits knapp unter der Erdoberfläche starten. Das ist entscheidend, da eine oberflächennahe Ressource generell immense Vorteile mit sich bringt. So ist nicht nur die Exploration deutlich einfacher, sondern auch später der Aufbau der Produktion.

Die Trenching-Programme auf den Ontario-Projekten, inkl. dem Little Bryan Projekt sollen Anfang April gestartet werden; diese Programme sollen auf den Gebieten durchgeführt werden, welche die besten Ergebnisse bei den elektromagnetischen Vermessungsprogrammen erreicht haben. Mit diesen Vorbereitungsprogrammen sollen dann die aussichtsreichsten Bohrziele definiert werden.

Bohrprogramm soll im August starten

Standard Graphite plant – bei erfolgreicher Definition der Bohrziele – das erste Bohrprogramm im August 2012 starten zu können.

Sehr positiv für die Exploration des Little Bryan Projekts ist die vorhandene Infrastruktur, welche die Kosten der Explorationsprogramme senken wird; eine Straße (Hyland Creek Rd) verläuft dabei nicht nur direkt durch die Konzessionen vom Little Bryan Projekt, sondern auch nahe der gefundenen Mineralisierungs-Trends.

Der renommierte Geologe Antoine Fournier leitet die Explorations- und Erschließungsprogramme von Standard Graphite, inkl. der Programme auf dem Little Bryan Projekt. Im Graphit-Business gehört Fournier zu den erfahrensten Geologen, der sich vor allem durch die Entdeckung des Lac-Knife Vorkommens von Focus Metals einen Namen gemacht hat. Das ist bei einem Unternehmen in einer frühen Phase ein ganz wichtiger Erfolgsfaktor, denn selbst im Rohstoffland Kanada gibt es nur wenige Graphitexperten.

Für die Bohrprogramme im Sommer/Herbst werden sie auf jeden Fall Geld einsammeln müssen. Evtl. sehen wir die nächste Finanzierung dafür im April oder Mai, damit diese im Frühsommer abgeschlossen werden kann. Nach den letzten financial reports verbrennen sie gerade mehr als 400.000 USD pro Monat. Der Fahrplan steht, und das Management legt wirklich voll los!

Standard hat noch ca. 1,2 working capital zur Verfügung. So kann man sich ausrechnen, dass bis spätestens Mai eine Finanzierung kommen wird. Sie haben gute Chancen die Verwässerung gering zu halten. Spannend wird es, wenn die Haltefrist des letzten Private-Placements ausläuft (20. Mai).

Was meint ihr, zu welchen Kursen sich Standard im Frühjahr/Frühsommer finanzieren kann?

Graphite Goes Critical: A Look At Noteworthy Canadian Juniors
By Nathan Pearson and Rachel Harrison

By now you’ve heard the buzz: graphite is the next hot resource stock. But why should investors care about this mineral that has gone largely ignored by the stock market since the mid 1980s?

The answer lies in a compelling story of supply and demand, and a future that looks to prove heavily reliant on the new industrial applications and green technologies that graphite is an integral part of. From a skyrocketing demand for lithium-ion batteries to the futuristic promises of graphene, the graphite market is one of the most closely watched in the junior exploration industry.

Graphite: Beyond the Pencil

Carbon — the building blocks of life itself — consists of three distinct types: amorphous (think coal, soot and charcoal), diamonds and graphite. Graphite is then further divided into amorphous, crystalline flake and lump/vein, all occurring in metamorphic as well as igneous rocks, and varying by grade, particle size distribution (mesh) and moisture content. The valuable properties of graphite are numerous: it’s an excellent conductor of heat and electricity, is extremely resistant to strong acids as well as thermal shock, is a phenomenal lubricant, is highly refractive and has the highest natural strength and stiffness of any known material. These properties make graphite the best — if not the only — choice for industrial applications such as steel manufacturing, brake linings, clutches, lubricants, crucibles, reinforcements in plastics and our favourite elementary school writing tool — pencils.

Although the historical applications noted above use all types of graphite, newly emerging technologies and a rising demand for alternative energy are creating a never-before seen need for flake graphite. Major drivers include lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, solar panels, pebble bed nuclear reactors and Proton Exchange Membrane technology.

Perhaps the most exciting feature in the graphite market of the future is the development of graphene, produced when one-atom-thick sheets of graphite are separated from one another. It is the thinnest and strongest material ever developed, being two hundred times stronger than steel and several times tougher than a diamond. Property-wise, it conducts both electricity and heat better than copper. This important discovery resulted in Professors Konstantin Novoselov and Andrew Geim — the pair to first isolate graphene — winning the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics. Potential future uses of the material are numerous, from playing a major role in the evolution of LCD touch-screen technology to usage in transistors, solar cells and data and energy storage units. Some say that graphene could end up replacing silicon altogether with its ability to enable transistors to operate more than twice the speed of its silicon counterpart.

Limited Supply Meets Increasing Demand

Because of new industrial applications and increased importance of green technologies demand for graphite is rising sharply, while supply falls behind at a startling rate.

The rapid industrialization of developing nations such as India and China has contributed to a steady increase in graphite demand of five percent per year for the last decade. Between 2000 and 2011 total graphite consumed doubled from 600,000 tonnes to 1.2 million tonnes. Byron Capital Markets expects to see this figure increase to 2.6 million tonnes by 2020.

Another factor in rising demand is the insatiable consumer appetite for gadgets such as laptops, cameras, cell phones, mp3 players and even power tools which all require the lithium-ion battery. Betraying its own name, the lithium-ion battery takes twenty to thirty times more graphite than lithium to produce. The only natural graphite suitable for these batteries is flake, which only makes up forty percent of the Earth’s available stores. A Canaccord research report states that, “Annual flake graphite production will have to increase by a factor of six by 2020 to meet incremental lithium carbonate requirements for batteries”. Additionally, we’re seeing a steady rise in electric vehicles which require up to seventy kilograms of graphite per vehicle depending on whether or not it is a hybrid, while fuel cells, according to the US Geological Survey, have the potential to use as much graphite as all other uses combined.

It is clear to see that our future could rely heavily on an increased supply of graphite, but the question is, where will it come from? Currently, China controls over seventy percent of the world’s graphite market, but depleted reserves in older, deeper mines paired with increased consumption within their own steel and automotive industries is keeping them holding on to what they’ve got. The country has imposed a twenty percent export duty combined with a seventeen percent VAT and export licensing system resulting in graphite prices to rise considerably, especially when it comes to flake. As Industrial Minerals Magazine says, “The days of cheap, abundant graphite from China are over.”

The world’s remaining thirty percent of graphite production is carried out in India, Brazil, North Korea, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Canada. Many new graphite sources will be required to meet the burgeoning demand; it is estimated that up to twenty-five more mines worth of new production could be needed. The British Geological Survey has declared graphite a critical material and the European commission included graphite among the fourteen materials it considers high in economic importance and supply risk. It is for these reasons that graphite prices have been swiftly on the rise.

Prices for graphite are determined by flake size and purity, with premium product being large flake (+80 mesh), high carbon (>94%) graphite. This grade currently commands up to $3000 per tonne—twice the price from 2010 and nearly tripling since 2008.

Exploration Companies to Watch

While scoping out potential exploration companies to invest in, investors will want to take note of properties that have shown near-surface, high-grade, large-flake deposits and are in politically and economically safe areas with a sound infrastructure. Canadian companies are a natural choice and there are several contenders that may offer investors some great value.

...

Standard Graphite

Vancouver-based Standard Graphite (TSX-V:SGH) takes the cake when it comes to sheer number of properties. The company holds one hundred percent interest in twelve graphite properties spanning from Quebec and Ontario.

Standard’s two Ontario properties have proven histories, with one of the properties surrounding the former Black Donald Mine. This mine was previously one of the largest and richest graphite mines in North America with an average grade of 25%-30% Cg during its last ten years in operation. The Little Bryan property, previously explored by Harrington Sound Resources in 1989 has shown average historic samples of 10.94% Cg in large flakes.

The company’s nine Quebec properties have not yet been explored by modern methods though assays have displayed grades of up to 30% Cg and high-grade shist/marble lithologies favourable for in-demand large flake graphite. 2012 will see Standard Graphite completing an aggressive exploration strategy on all twelve of its properties. The airborne EM survey, which has already commenced, will be followed by detailed ground geophysics, metallurgical testing and a five to six target drill program ultimately leading to resource development.

Standard’s management team is lead by President, CEO and Director Chris Bogart, whose extensive experience spans resource finance, business development, strategic planning and corporate restructuring. He is also the President of Metals Mgmt Group and was Co-Founder of Magnum Uranium. Also on the team are Antoine Fournier M.Sc., Chief Geologist—on the geologic team that discovered Standard’s Lac Knife deposit; Michael Philpot MBA, Director; and Alan Hitchborn P.Geo, Director.

Current market cap for Standard Graphite is $12.86 million and shares can be purchased for $0.58.

...

A Booming Resource

As the graphite boom gains momentum investors will want to pay close attention to the value currently offered by Canadian juniors in the industry. And as more and more companies pop up to claim their slice of graphite pie, it would be wise to get in on the action while the supply and demand situation remains critical.

With developing nations in full-swing industrialization and green technologies becoming a global priority graphite has incredible long-term growth potential and should be a very large blip on every investor’s radar screen.

Have you made graphite a part of your resource portfolio yet?

Standard Graphite engagiert eine IR-Firma für den nordamerikanischen Finanzsektor. Das timing für diesen Schritt (der die Story bekannter machen sollte) finde ich passend, da sie demnächst eine neue Finanzierung benötigen werden. Schaffen sie es, den Aktienkurs zu stabilisieren bzw. sogar noch zu steigern, können sie eine sehr verwässerungsschonende Finanzierung auf hohem Niveau durchführen.

Standard Graphite (TSX-V:SGH) - Summary

Aktuelle Unternehmenspräsentation: http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/SGH_CorporatePresentat…
Aktuelles FactSheet: http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/SGH-FactSheet.pdf
Homepage: http://www.standardgraphite.com/s/home.asp

Standard Graphite (ehemals Orocan Resources) ist dem Graphitmarkt bereits im Herbst letztes Jahr beigetreten, und damit nicht wie viele Explorer im Hype erst auf diesen Sektor aufgesprungen. Bereits im November 2011 akquirierte man aufgrund exzellenter Beziehungen von einigen Managern einige Graphit-Projekte in Ontario. Das Projektportfolio hat Standard Graphite seither massiv ausgebaut. In Quebec erwarb man ebenfalls einige aussichtsreiche Liegenschaften, alle mit top Infrastruktur und guten historischen Kennziffern/Eigenschaften bzgl. potentieller Lagerstätten und Graphit-Mineralisierungen.

Heute verfügt Standard Graphite in Ontario und Quebec über 12 Graphit-Projekte. U.a. besitzt Standard Graphite auch eine größere Liegenschaft (das Black Donald Projekt), welche die ehemals wertvollste Graphit-Mine von Nord-Amerika (lokalisiert in Ontario) komplett umschließt. In Quebec besitzt Standard auch einige sehr aussichtsreiche Projekte, ein paar davon bsp. auch in der Nähe des Lac Knife Projektes von Focus Metals.

Die Projekte in Ontario:


Die Projekte in Quebec:



Standard Graphite führt auf einigen Projekten gerade Vorbereitungsarbeiten für die geplanten Bohrprogramme durch (Airborne Electronic, EM-Gutachten, Ground EM Survey, mapping, sampling, trenching, drill target definition etc.), die im Sommer starten werden.

Demnächst wird auch eine Kapitalmaßnahme anstehen, um diese Programme zu finanzieren. Gerade hat man noch ca. 800.000 CAD Cash auf der Bank, die monatliche burn rate beträgt aufgrund der zahlreichen Explorationsprogramme satte 400.000 CAD. Schon anhand dieser Ziffern sieht man, dass dort richtig viel Geld in den Boden gesteckt wird, um die besten Bohrziele für die anstehenden Bohrprogramme zu finden. Sie planen 5-6 targets dieses Jahr noch zu bohren.

Der Fahrplan 2012:



Aufgrund der sehr guten Performance während der letzten 6 Monate wird man die Verwässerung relativ gering halten können. Mit nur ca. 22 Millionen ausstehenden Aktien kann Standard Graphite auch eine besonders gute Aktienstruktur vorweisen. So wenige Aktien haben nur ganz wenige Explorer in diesem Segment gegenwärtig am Markt. Dies wird auch die Performancepotentiale und den Hebel bei guten news in Zukunft fördern. Nach Schätzungen der Verantwortlichen befinden sich ca. 70% der ausstehenden Aktien in festen Händen (insider, pro group, family & friends etc)

Standard Graphite hat etliche kompetente Leute für die Exploration der zahlreichen Graphit-Projekte an Bord geholt. Der CEO Chris Bogart hat schon einige Male ein sehr gutes Händchen für angesagte Trends im Rohstoffsektor bewiesen. So war bsp. einer der ersten die vom Boom im Uranium-Sektor vor einigen Jahren (2006/2007) profitieren konnten. Er war damals Chef und Gründer von Magnum Uranium, die von Energy Fuels dann übernommen wurden.

Anderen Manager (Directors) wie Michael Philpot (ehemals bei First Quantum Minerals) und Alan Hitchborn (ehemals bei Placer Dome) können ebenfalls einen sehr starken Track Record im Rohstoffsektor vorweisen, und verfügen über ein exzellentes Kontaktnetzwerk im Minensektor.

Einen weiteren Coup landete der CEO mit der Ernennung von zwei top Managern in das Beratungsgremium von Standard Graphite. Mit Patrick Downey arbeitet der CEO Chris Bogart bsp. schon seit langer Zeit bei Corex Gold zusammen. Demnach ein eingespieltes Team. Mr. Downey ist u.a. der CEO von Elgin Mining, die sich gerade mit einem europäischen Gold-Produzenten zusammenschließen. Der zweite Mann im Beratungsgremium ist ebenfalls eine richtige Hausnummer. Stephen Stanley war der Chef von Hathor Exploration, die in einem spannenden Bieterstreit (zwischen Cameco und Rio Tinto) von Rio Tinto für satte 650 Millionen US Dollar letztes Jahr übernommen wurde.

Von Beginn an konnten sie auch bsp. den versierten Geologen Antoine Fournier für die Story und die Projekte begeistern. Antoine Fournier gehört zu den ganz wenigen Spezialisten und Geologen im Graphit-Sektor, der bereits auch große Erfolge in den Büchern stehen hat. Mr. Fournier war einer der Hauptverantwortlichen bei der Entdeckung des hochgradigsten Graphit-Vorkommen der Welt: Das Lac Knife Projekt von Focus Metals in Quebec. Mr. Fournier ist für die Planung und Durchführung von allen Explorationsprogrammen bei Standard verantwortlich. Das Engagement von diesem kompetenten Mann ist ein großes Privileg für Standard Graphite, da es wirklich nur ganz wenige auf Graphit spezialisierte Geologen im Rohstoffsektor gegenwärtig gibt.

Standard Graphite war ebenfalls auf der 1. Graphit-Konferenz in Vancouver vertreten, die im Februar im Fairmont Hotel durchgeführt wurde. Etliche Experten aus dem Sektor waren vertreten, u.a. auch Ryan Fletcher und Chris Berry. Standard’s CEO präsentierte die Story und konnte sich über großes Interesse erfreuen. Die stars auf dieser Konferenz waren die fortgeschrittenen Graphit-Unternehmen Northern Graphite und Focus Metals, die beide bereits nächstes Jahr in Produktion gehen wollen.

Sobald die Bohrprogramme starten, wird es erst richtig spannend werden. Standard Graphite hat sich das Ziel gesetzt, ökonomische Lagerstätten mit dem hochwertigsten Graphit (Large Flake, Carbon-Content: 94-97%, Graphit-Size: >177µm, Preis: 2.500-3.000 USD) zu entdecken. Die Chancen für die nächste relevante Entdeckung im kanadischen Graphit-Sektor sind aufgrund der oben genannten Voraussetzungen ausgesprochen gut. Lassen wir uns mal überraschen, welche Fortschritte sie dieses Jahr noch erzielen werden.

Aus dem Tim-Luca Thread bzw. von miningscout.de:

Evtl. für den einen oder anderen User von Interesse


Treffen Sie spannende Rohstoff-Firmen vor Ort in Deutschland

Der direkte Kontakt zu Rohstoff-Firmen ist oft schwierig: Die meisten Unternehmen stammen aus Nordamerika und sind nur sehr selten direkt in Deutschland vor Ort. Doch von Zeit zu Zeit gibt es immer mal wieder die Chance, das Management direkt in Deutschland zu treffen. Das hat für deutsche Investoren gleich verschiedene Vorteile: Man kann das Management persönlich treffen und offene Fragen im direkten Gespräch klären. In der kommenden Woche haben interessierte Anleger die Chance, gleich zwei aussichtsreiche Unternehmen in Deutschland zu treffen. Im Einzelnen sind das Standard Graphite und Great Panther Silver.

Standard Graphite: Aussichtsreiche Aktie im neuen Graphitsektor Eine neue Aktie im noch kleinen Graphitsektor ist Standard Graphite (WKN: A1JTSS). Der kanadische Explorer startet jetzt mit insgesamt 12 Graphit-Projekten in Quebec und Ontario. Spannend ist: Diese Vorkommen befinden sich in Gegenden, in denen das großflockige und damit teure Graphit zu finden ist. Doch neben den Projekten hat Standard Graphite noch ein Ass im Ärmel: Das ist Antoine Fournier, der Chefgeologe des Unternehmens. Fournier gehörte zu den Verantwortlichen bei der Entdeckung des Lac Knife Graphit Vorkommens, dass derzeit noch ein ganz entscheidender Teil des Portfolios von Focus Metals (WKN: A1C7E4) ist.

Doch dieses Unternehmen wird derzeit rund auf dem neunfachen Niveau von Standard Graphite gehandelt. Standard Graphite ist mit nur 22 Millionen Aktie und einer Marktkapitalisierung von rund 11 Mio. CAD eben noch am Anfang.

Doch das kann alles sehr schnell gehen, denn bei Graphit geht die Entwicklung von Vorkommen sehr viel schneller als bei vielen anderen Rohstoffen.

Starke Ergebnisse von den elektromagnetischen Gutachten (Vermessungsflüge) bei Standard Graphite!

Reminder: Das Black Donald Projekt umschließt die ehemals wertvollste und größte Graphit-Mine in Nordamerika. Der Trend des Mineralsystems der Black Donald Mine scheint auf den Liegenschaften von Standard Graphite im Norden weiterzulaufen (siehe Map unten).


Standard Graphite Completes Successful EM Survey at Black Donald and Secures Strategic Claims

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 26, 2012) - Standard Graphite Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGH) (the "Company") is pleased to report that it has identified two very large conductors through its recently completed EM Survey performed in January over its Black Donald Property, located some 140 km due east of Ottawa, Ontario. Additionally, the company has acquired additional claims in the Black Donald area following the interpretation of the airborne TDEM survey to secure the important claims that were associated with these newly identified conductors.

The survey highlighted two very long parallel and well-defined conductors lying North of Black Donald Lake; these appear to replicate the trend of the former Black Donald Mine. Some historical graphite occurrences are associated with these conductors that confirm the significance of this discovery. The trend is discontinuous and bends northward at its eastern edge, terminating in the Coronation Resources occurrence. Drilling in 1982 had produced very encouraging results of up to 5.80% Cg over widths up to 32ft (Storey, C.C. and Vos M.A., Industrial Minerals from the Pembroke - Renfrew Area, Part 2, Ontario Geological Survey, Mineral Deposits Circular 22, 1981).

Please click the following link for the EM Map for Black Donald:
http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/BDonald.pdf

These results prompted the company to extend the claim blocks by acquiring adjacent properties totaling ~ 500 ha. with the following terms:

Upon signing a Binding Agreement, C$5,000 and 15,000 common shares; 12 months from TSX approval, $10,000 and 20,000 common shares; 24 months from TSX approval, $15,000 and 25,000 common shares; 36 months from TSX approval, $50,000.

Chris Bogart, President and CEO, states: "Standard is excited about this new acquisition and our excellent EM results. The project is now consolidated and the company is confident that this survey has greatly improved our ability to prioritize targets. We can now start the implementation of the next phase of work, a field reconnaissance program scheduled for April, 2012."

The Black Donald Property surrounds the now flooded Black Donald Mine that produced high purity graphite between 1895 and 1950, and that was reputedly one of the richest graphite deposits in the world. This property is the largest of the three (3) claim blocks optioned by Standard Graphite for the acquisition of a 100% interest (see press release November 21 2011). It covers approximately 9500 ha. and is underlain by Grenvillian gneisses, favorable host rocks for graphite. During the month of January 2012, an airborne TDEM survey, consisting of 1492 line kilometres, was conducted by Prospectair Geosurveys over the properties located in Ontario to evaluate the extent of the known occurrences and help in the discovery of new mineralization.

Antoine Fournier, P. Geo., manages Standard's exploration and development programs and is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. He supervised the preparation of the technical information in this release.

Standard Graphite: Zwei große Graphitadern beim Black Donald Projekt

Standard Graphite hat durch detaillierte Geophysikprogramme (inkl. Flugvermessungen, EM-Begutachten) zwei große mineralisierte Adern ausfindig gemacht und damit die Bohrvorbereitungsprogramme und die EM-Gutachten auf dem Black Donald Projekt erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Die gefundenen Adern weisen in den EM-Gutachten besonders hohe Werte aus, welche auf signifikante Graphit-Mineralisierungen schließen lassen.

Standard Graphite hält ein 100%tiges Eigentumsrecht an dem Black Donald Projekt, das in kanadischen Provinz Ontario liegt und eine Fläche von 9.000 Hektar umfasst. Spannend ist dabei die zentrale Lage mit einer Entfernung von nur 140km zur kanadischen Metropole Ottawa. Heute hat das Unternehmen neue Daten zum Projekt veröffentlicht, die das große Potenzial bei diesem traditionellen Graphitprojekt untermauern.

Black Donald Projekt: Früher die größte Graphit-Mine Nordamerikas Die Liegenschaften des Black Donald Projekts umschließen die ehemals größte und wertvollste Graphit-Mine in Nordamerika: Die gleichnamige Black Donald Mine wies historische Graphit-Werte in den Erzköpern bis 80% Graphit pro Tonne auf.

In den letzten 10 Jahren der Produktion betrug der durchschnittliche Graphit-Anteil 25-30%. Dabei produzierte die Black Donald Mine 94% der gesamten Graphit-Produktion in Ontario (von 1895-1950) und war damit auch für einen hohen Anteil an der gesamten Produktion in Kanada verantwortlich. Das Projekt verfügt über exzellente Infrastruktur-Anbindungen, u.a. gut ausgebaute Straßen und einen direkten Zugang zum Stromnetz mit einer Überlandleitung, die durch den südlichen Projektteil durchläuft.

Die abgeschlossen EM-Gutachten sollten primär neue potentielle Graphite-Mineralisierungen entdecken bzw. bereits vermutete erweitern. Vor dem ersten Bohrprogramm sollen so die besten und lukrativsten Bohrziele lokalisiert werden. Dabei steht die Qualität bzgl. den Graphit-Mineralisierungen im Fokus. Neben den höchsten Grades spielt auch die mögliche Größe des Vorkommens eines Rolle. Dabei gilt: Möglichst lange und breite Graphit-Mineralisierungen deuten auf signifikante Vorkommen hin.

Standard Graphite vergrößert die Projektflächen um 500 Hektar Standard Graphite hat sich aufgrund der vielversprechenden Ergebnisse der EM-Gutachten (inkl. TDEM-Gutachten = Vermessungsflüge mit einer Streckenlänge von 1492 km) und deren Interpretation weitere claims mit einer Fläche von 500 Hektar gesichert, die an das Black Donald Projekt angrenzen.

Vor allem im nördlichen Teil des Black Donald Projektes hat Standard Graphite besonders gute Ergebnisse durch die Gutachten erzielt (hier auch der Verlauf der 2 Adern; sie entdecken durch diese Programme einen mineralisierten Korridor, der fast 10km lang ist; 5km davon sind durchgehend mineralisiert (in diesem Abschnitt wurden auch die meisten Graphit-Indikationen festgestellt. Dazu gibt es auch eine neue Karte auf der Webseite des Unternehmens:

http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/BDonald.pdf

Der CEO Chris Bogart ist mit den Ergebnissen natürlich sehr zufrieden; er zeigt sich ebenfalls sehr zufrieden über die Ergebnisse der abgeschlossenen EM-Gutachten und auch über die neuerworbenen Claims.

Standard Graphite liegt voll auf Kurs

Die abgeschlossenen Vorbereitungsprogramme werden wohl maßgeblich dazu beitragen, die aussichtsreichsten Bohrziele für die anstehenden Programme ausfindig zu machen. Derzeit ist die nächste Arbeitsphase auf Black Donald bereits in Vorbereitung: Im April soll ein weiteres Untersuchungsprogramm auf der Liegenschaft starten. Priorität hat dabei das Gebiet, in dem sich die gefundenen Adern befinden. Grundsätzlich Standard Graphit ist voll auf Kurs. Der Fahrplan steht und die geplanten Aktionen werden sehr diszipliniert umgesetzt. Die bisher erzielten Ergebnisse können sich ohne Frage sehen lassen.

Gestern ist ein neues Interview mit Bob Moriarty auf dem GraphiteStocks/Agoracom Blog erschienen, in dem er u.a. über den Graphit Sektor diskutiert. Bob hatte Standard Graphite ja Ende 2011 als sein Favorit im Graphit-Sektor empfohlen.

Link: http://graphitestocksblog.agoracom.com/2012/03/26/agoracom-i…

As such, when someone like Bob Moriarty speaks, it behooves all of us to listen. So what did we talk about today?

1. Why the explosion of interest, investment and growth in new graphite mine development? Is it for real?

2. Why graphite is an analog of oil.


..

This was a great interview. One of the best we’ve had with a major market commentator, which have included the likes of Eric Sprott, JF Tardif, Barry Ritholtz , Paul Kedrosky and Eric Coffin. What made it one of our better ones? Though I agree with much that Bob had to say, I challenged him by playing Devil’s Advocate and arguing the case as presented by Wall Street and the mass media. Though Bob didn’t budge and argued his case even harder, he was kind of enough to tell me how pleased he was with the interview.

The ultimate judge will be you, so listen in on the first few minutes and see if it carries you through to the fireworks at the end.

On behalf of myself and the entire listening audience, I want to thank Bob for taking time out of his Sunday to speak with us..

The Hottest Market is Graphite

GraphiteBlog broke our all-time high yesterday. Probably because this is the hottest sector to watch, so allow me to make a few points about its use and long-term demand. It seems the graphite sector is going the way of the rare earths and as graphite’s application’s become more prevalent it begs questioning about its potential role in national defense and security systems. With the US fully dependent on imports for meeting its own graphite demands and without viable alternatives -- can’t help but wonder about what will happen next in the graphite sector.

China has imposed a 20% export duty, a 17% value added tax (VAT) and an export licensing system in trying to control the graphite market, as it has done with rare earths. Additional tightening of the reins on graphite supply is also expected and this will push prices for graphite and particularly the flake kind even higher.

The European Commission, the British Geological Survey and the US State Department have all declared graphite as critical raw material based on its importance in traditional industries such as steelmaking alongside its importance to new and emerging technologies. A third factor is that China controls a large amount of the graphite industry and currently produces in excess of 70% of the world’s graphite supply -- this includes the majority of the supply for the amorphous and flake graphite markets. Graphite is also produced in India, Brazil, North Korea, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, and Canada.

A press release dated June 17, 2010, on the Europa.eu website, the official website of the EU, titled Report Forecasts Shortages of 14 Critical Mineral Raw Materials states that “For the critical raw materials, their high supply risk is mainly due to the fact that a high share of the worldwide production mainly comes from a handful of countries: China (antimony, fluorspar, gallium, germanium, graphite, indium, magnesium, rare earths, tungsten), Russia (platinum group metals), the Democratic Republic of Congo (cobalt, tantalum) and Brazil (niobium and tantalum). This production concentration, in many cases, is compounded by low substitutability and low recycling rates.”

The graphite market primarily includes three types of graphite: amorphous graphite, flake graphite and lump graphite. Each type occurs in different types of ore deposits. The many traditional and emerging uses of graphite have been detailed in various posts on GrahiteBlog already. However here’s a very brief rundown.

Historical applications include the use of graphite in pencils, steelmaking, brake linings, foundry facings and lubricants. These applications require mostly amorphous and lump graphite and the automotive and steel industries account for the majority of consumption. Graphite is used to augment to carbon content of steel and in turn it increases the strength of the steel and makes it capable of withstanding higher temperatures. It is estimated that the steel industry and the automotive industry grow by 5% per year.

The energy sector also requires graphite for pebble-bed nuclear reactors, lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and photovoltaic panels. These applications are propelling the increased demand for high-grade, large-flake graphite and as green energy technologies become more economical and more prevalent the demand for graphite will also rise. Graphite is also key component of vanadium redox battery technology that requires 300 tonnes of flake graphite for 1,000 megawatts of storage. Production of the vanadium redox battery is expected to rise with the increase alternative energy such as wind and solar power. The combination of vanadium and graphite enable long-term storage or an unlimited capacity of excess energy and this technology is a solution to interrupted power production often associated with wind and solar energy.

Lithium ion batteries are widely used in consumer electronics like cell phones, laptops and power tools. These batteries are replacing nickel-metal-hydride batteries used in electric vehicles, electric motorcycles and scooters. Interestingly, the lithium-ion battery’s name does not reflect that fact they contain 20-times more graphite than lithium. Future demand for consumer electronics is also forecasted to increase and this will also increase the demand for graphite. It is estimated that the demand for graphite for use in lithium-ion batteries will grow 25% per year meaning that the production of lithium-ion batteries would require more than 1.6 million tonnes of high-grade flake graphite during the next decade. Considering that electric vehicle (EV) production is forecasted to grow to as much as 6 million units and that each EV requires 40 pounds of graphite, 240 million pounds of graphite will be needed to meet that demand.

The quality of flake graphite depends on grade and particle size. These factors also determine its price with most consumers of flake graphite preferring to use high-grade and large-flake in their products. For example amorphous graphite for steelmaking trades for about $850 per tonnes whereas flake graphite depending on the flake size is being sold for $2,000 to $3,000 per tonne.

The supply of graphite is not experiencing the same growth as its demand. A recent report by Canaccord states “Annual flake graphite production will have to increase by a factor of six by 2020 to meet incremental lithium carbonate requirements for batteries.”

Standard Graphite Corp. Identified as 'Best of Breed' - EM Surveys Affirm Significant Large-Flake Graphite Resource Potential

Mar 30, 2012 (ACCESSWIRE-TNW via COMTEX) -- Standard Graphite Corp. CA:SGH
+8.22% DARDF +7.71% is living up to its 'Best of Breed' designation; the Company was identified in a BNN interview at PDAC earlier this month by James West, Portfolio Advisor to the Midas Opportunity Fund, as his #1 selection in the graphite space. The 'Best of Breed' designation appears warranted as SGH.V has a tight share structure, is guided by some of the most accomplished individuals in the mining sector, and possesses 12 graphite projects in Quebec and Ontario amenable to major discovery with plans underway to drill to resource the top prospect evidencing grade, flake distribution, purity, and tonnage. This week SGH.V released successful airborne electromagnetic (EM) survey results, identifying large conductors, on its Black Donald graphite property which strategically surrounds the past producing Black Donald Graphite Mine in Ontario. Shares of SGH.V, now trading near 72 cents (under CDN$16M market cap), appear to only just be the start of significant upside revaluation in store for the Company as the current market cap appears disproportionately low relative to the immense inherent value of the large-flake graphite projects now being advanced.

The latest updates on Standard Graphite and its properties are profiled in a Mining MarketWatch Journal review available at http://www.miningmarketwatch.net/sgh.htm online.

Standard Graphite Corp. presents one of the strongest opportunities in the market for investors seeking exposure to the large flake graphite sector. SGH.V offers advantages for investors serious about exposure to the sector that others cannot, it stands far above others in its class in terms of key criteria an investor should concern themselves with before being involved with any graphite exploration and development mining company; 1) people, 2) breadth of quality projects amenable to large flake, high purity graphite deposits, and 3) share structure.

SGH.V was founded and is guided by some of the most accomplished individuals in the mining sector and their decision to enter the large flake graphite sector early in 2011 was made ahead of the curve, allowing them to secure some of the most prospective properties in Canada with the aid of an experienced geologist that specializes in graphite (something rare in the business and that few, if any, others in the graphite exploration sector have). SGH.V's geologist was part of the geologic team responsible for the discovery of Focus Metals' Lac Knife graphite deposit. SGH.V's geologist set about selecting properties for geological characteristics amenable to a major graphite discovery in geographic settings amenable to open pit mining. Other companies in the sector typically only have 1 - 3 prospects, SGH.V has 12 graphite projects (all 100% owned) in Quebec and Ontario, all within known graphite districts. SGH.V is employing a tiered exploration process whereby each stage increases in detail to filter the 12 projects down to top candidates from which one will be chosen as a flagship property that it will take to resource. At each stage of exploration a re-rating and re-ranking of the properties will occur, a methodical process that mitigates risk and maximizes the probability of achieving the desired outcome of drilling to resource the top prospect evidencing grade, flake distribution, purity, and tonnage.

The breadth of properties SGH.V has in its portfolio gives it additional derisking as it need not be forced to make one project work, it has choice. SGH.V is only looking at projects that are amenable to large flake graphite, only open pit targets, and they must have the parameters that will be needed for a viable graphite deposit. In Ontario their properties are located in the Ottawa Valley proximal to Northern Graphite's Bisset Creek mine (the best known near term large flake production story) and the Kearney mine of Ontario Graphite. In Quebec SGH.V has properties near Timcal's Lac des Iles (Canada's largest graphite producer) and Focus Metals' LacKnife.

By the end of March 2012 EM surveys will have been completed on a majority of SGH.V's properties, after which the data will be analyzed for a ground sampling and trenching program. The properties will be re-ranked again after the ground work and short listed for exploration. A small drill program on a handful of targets will then set up for the selection of a flagship to take to resource -- exhibiting the best grade, flake distribution, purity, and tonnage.

Graphit week round-up: Standard Graphite wird positiv erwähnt


Graphite News Week in Review: Lomiko, Standard Graphite + SRK, FGR, GXY, ATT, GPH, CED, FDR, EGZ.

It’s been a busy week in the graphite sector and thought it’d be timely to do a quick overview of some of the graphite news highlights that have crossed the wires recently to get a handle on recent industry movements.

Earlier this week Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSXV: LMR | OTC: LMRMF) announced its NI 43-101 Technical Report regarding its Quatre Milles graphite property was accepted by the the TSX Venture Exchange and filed on Sedar. Lomiko recently optioned the Quatre Milles Graphite Property in Quebec to search of large flake, crystallite graphite which is sought after for use in electric cars, fuel cells, pebble-bed nuclear reactors and to create graphene, a newly discovered, chicken-wire shaped formation of carbon which is one-atom thick and has incredible properties that can make it 200 times stronger than steel, a superconductor at room temperature and heat-resistant. Research scientists world-wide are experimenting with new technology that uses graphene and at least 25 new patents have been filed. For more, click here.

Standard Graphite Corp. (TSXV: SGH) reported it had identified two very large conductors through its recently completed electromagnetic (EM) survey performed in January at its Black Donald property, located east of Ottawa. Standard Graphite also reported acquisition of additional claims in the Black Donald area subsequent to the interpretation of airborne time domain electromagnetic (TDEM) survey. The survey highlighted two very long parallel and well-defined conductors lying North of Black Donald Lake and these appear to replicate the trend of the former Black Donald Mine. Standard Graphite’s Black Donald property surrounds the now flooded Black Donald Mine that produced high purity graphite between 1895 and 1950. For more, click here.

Here are the other news highlights in chronological order:

Strike Graphite Corp. (TSXV: SRK) announced it had received exploration drill permits for their Simon Lake project in northern Saskatchewan. The permit will enable Strike Graphite to begin the ground exploration on the ~25 kilometer long conductive horizon that was recently confirmed with a high-resolution airborne time domain electromagnetic (TDEM) survey. The next stage of the exploration seeks to confirm with drill testing the known graphite occurrences along a 5.5 kilometer conductive trend; drill test new high priority targets along the recently identified 25 km long conductive trend; and process drill-core material for graphite mineralogical characterization and initial metallurgical testing. For more, click here.

First Graphite Corp. (TSXV: FGR) announced it had entered into a mining option agreement with Thomas Lewis pursuant to which he First Graphite has been granted the option to acquire a 100% interest in various claims located in the Slocan Valley region of British Columbia, referred to as the Mt. Heimdahl Property which totals 1,045 hectares. For more, click here.

Galaxy Capital Corp. (TSXV: GXY) reported it had made a non-brokered private placement of up to 12 million units at a price of CDN$0.18 per unit. Galaxy intends to use the funds from this private placement for the exploration and development of its graphite exploration projects in Quebec and for general working capital. For more, click here.

Atocha Resources Inc. (TSXV: ATT) reported that it has engaged Dany Boilard Inc. to conduct work including detailed exploration through geographic information system (GIS) compilation, site visits and mass mailing to the landowners in the property’s vicinity in relation to the newly purchased 25 claim Montpellier block located in Quebec. The area is considered to be highly favorable for mineralization that includes graphite as well as gold, silver, copper, nickel, platinum group elements and rare earth elements. For more, click here.

Graphite One Resources Inc. (TSXV: GPH) announced it has updated its management team and board of directors to reflect the goals and priorities of the company. Charles Chebry announced his resignation as President of Graphite One Resources and Anthony Huston assumes this position. In addition Dean Besserer and Brian Budd have been appointed to the board of directors. For more, click here.

Cedar Mountain Exploration Inc. (TSXV: CED) announced shareholder approval for its name change to Graphite One Resources Inc. They will remain on the TSX Venture Exchange with the new stock symbol of GPH. For more, click here.

Flinders Resources Limited (TSXV: FDR) announced it was proposing to undertake a private placement of up to 8,823,530 million units at a price of CDN$1.70 per unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN$15 million. Net proceeds of this private placement will enable Flinders to substantially advance its Kringel graphite mine in Sweden toward production. For more, click here.

Energizer Resources Inc. (TSXV: EGZ | OTCBB ENZR) announced it received positive initial metallurgical test results from its Green Giant Project in Madagascar. It was also reported that DRA Mineral Projects has made an equity investment into Energizer Resources. Graphite ore samples indicated graphite concentrates at purities of +90%. Both samples were subjected to beneficiation that included crushing, grinding, and various flotation schemes. A +50-mesh grind was utilized for the majority of the testing to achieve a high degree of liberation while maintaining a particle size that would be attractive to the marketplace. This testing recovered graphite in the form of oversize products at +50 mesh and flotation concentrates. Further data is forthcoming. For more, click here.

Auszug:
TER: On to graphite.

CB: The share prices of almost all of these graphite juniors in the last couple of months have gone parabolic. Graphite is likely to be the story of 2012 and we're fielding a lot of questions from our subscribers on how to interpret this space and how to invest accordingly. It is exciting, and there's a lot to learn about it and a lot of potential for growth, but there also is apparent excess capacity in China, which we think argues for extreme prudence when choosing where to invest. That's one caveat that I would offer in terms of thinking about investing in this space: the potential that China could ramp up production, including high-purity, large-flake graphite production.

TER: We're also starting to hear about spherical graphite. Does this form have any advantages, for example, through use in specific applications?

CB: The key to manufacturing an efficient lithium-ion battery is to try and achieve the highest energy density for a given surface area. Producers essentially shape flake graphite into a sphere to realize the maximum energy density for the battery in the annode. As this is a highly specialized product, it commands a higher price on world markets. Access to spherical graphite isn't the most important issue. More important is the ability to access the large-flake, high-purity graphite in a stable geopolitical jurisdiction at the lowest cost. Large-flake natural graphite is currently one-third the price of synthetic graphite, which is predominantly what's used in batteries. A real challenge to vehicle electrification is the cost of the car and the bulk of this cost is associated with the battery. If you can lower the cost of the battery either through breakthroughs in electro-chemistry or by using lower-cost raw materials, mass adoption of electric vehicles may be here sooner than we think.

TER: What are some plays that you're following?

CB: Northern Graphite Corporation (NGC: TSX; NGPHF: OTCQX) is a company that we've followed from before its initial public offering and still really like. It has extremely strong management that has experience in graphite mining. The metallurgy of its Bissett Creek property right off of the Trans-Canada Highway is very well understood, thanks to recent findings by the company as well as a great deal of historical work. Northern Graphite is well on its way to producing a bankable feasibility study in Q112 or Q212. It's a highly scalable resource that appears open in multiple directions and is likely to grow the overall tonnage. Bisset Creek demonstrates a low capital expenditure of CAD$70-80M and competitive cash costs of $1,000/t. Finally, Northern Graphite released successful pilot plant test results earlier this year, where results showed that more than 50% of the concentrate produced will be jumbo-size +48 mesh flake, averaging 97.7% graphitic carbon. All of this adds up to what I think will be a very high-margin business.

We also have been following Standard Graphite Corp. (SGH:TSX.V). Again, when we look at these types of companies, the first thing we look for is management. We would characterize this an incubator company and the CEO, Chris Bogart, has experience in the energy metals space. He ran Magnum Uranium Ltd., which was taken out by Energy Fuels Inc. (EFR:TSX). The vice president of exploration for Standard is Antoine Fournier, who was on the team that discovered the Lac Knife deposit, which is now the primary asset of Focus Metals Inc. (FMS:TSX.V). It has 100% ownership of 12 properties in Ontario and Quebec, all of which are early stage. There is no resource estimate on any of these properties, but several of its properties surround Bissett Creek and the Lac Knife deposit, so you can very loosely use what we know about those properties as a proxy for what the Standard Graphite properties might resemble with respect to grades and tonnage. Standard also owns properties near the Lac des Illes graphite mine currently owned by Timcal.

One of Standard's properties is also near a past-producing graphite mine in Ontario called Black Donald. This was a prolific producer of high-grade, large-flake graphite for many years. Having 12 wholly owned properties is a good thing. I view it as de-risking—in other words, you can conduct exploration on these properties and find the best resource(s) and move forward on it as opposed to putting all your chips in one basket and hoping that your single project is a world beater, when it might not be. The company is going to spend $5M this year on an exploration budget. It's conducting electromagnetic (EM) surveys right now on the properties and should have drill targets prioritized by this summer. The stock has moved upwards in tandem with other graphite plays this year, but I think it holds additional potential for upside pending results from its exploration program.

Graphite Stocks - Graphite Market Pulse - April 1, 2012

April 1st, 2012 - Well it's been another couple big weeks folks, and after many of them on the road I'm finally back in Vancouver now, maybe with just enough time to update the state of the graphite markets and our latest comparables, unpack my suitcase and straighten my tie for another big week of action.

This week I'll be talking about the Jim Dines effect, a rising Swedish graphite darling, two stellar market performers, a company that has certainly come right out of meditation but needs to be watched closely, and then serving you up the latest TSX Venture market comparables. And don't worry my friends in OZ, we'll be beefing this site right up in the coming days and weeks so we'll be sure to get you in the comparables real soon.

The Dines Effect

“James Dines, truly a living legend, is one of the most accurate and highly regarded investment analysts today.” ~http://www.dinesletter.com/

Mr. Dines is widely regarded as one of if not the biggest newsletter writer in the game, and on March 26th he announced his interest in the graphite space, with an initial recommendation on Flinders Resources (tsx.v: FDR). He also mentions what we all know now, that there are many entrants into the space but it’s hard to yet make heads or tails of the early plays especially. (Of course that’s why this site is here, so people can make sense of it all. See my comparables to give you a hand, below).

Word of Dines’ commentary spread like wildfire this week, as it has been my understanding that a number of graphite skeptics were still sitting on the sidelines trying to determine if the space is legit. I have said this before, so I will say it again…the opportunities in a cycle like this don’t last forever. There will be a time when interest in graphite will cool off, but that won’t be today. I believe the current fundamentals are sound and we will need to see a number of projects separate themselves from the pack before the window of opportunity for all these emerging companies begins to close. Sometimes these cycles have been short, but others longer. Rare Earths for instance, which Dines also compares this opportunity to, had a thriving opportunity cycle of about 18 months most figure, maybe up to 2 years. I think we’ll need to see some of these projects play out before any of this action slows down, and let’s be honest; a fellow like Dines does need to comment on a space if he doesn’t feel it has legs. And clearly his and the broader market acknowledged that this week, as many players witnessed huge buying this week, including tsx.v: NGC, FDR, FMS, SGH, SRK, ZEN, CJC…and I could go on. For those who are unaware and in the interest of disclosure, CJC is my deal, but have a look at the day we and others had even just this Friday. I am of the opinion this interest and action will continue in the space for some time.

A Swedish Beauty

Having announced and surely well oversubscribed a $15 million financing a few days ago with a syndicate of heavyweights, Flinders Resources (tsx.v: FDR) has been a favorite of mine as you know if you’ve been reading my past entries. It’s special for these modern/tech metals niches that when a supply crisis emerges that there are advanced assets essentially sitting ready to come back on stream, but otherwise dormant. This is one of the best plays out there in my opinion, and Dines agrees, calling it a likely graphite ‘best of breed.’ The stock has been rocking. Pay attention to this one.

On Rockstars and Perforance Standards

Sometimes you just have to take your hats off to groups that are really making magic happen, and this week the kudos need to go to Northern Graphite (tsx.v: NGC) and Standard Graphite (tsx.v: SGH). For those who are unaware, Northern has an advanced flagship asset, and Standard has put together a large portfolio of promising early stage assets. These companies are not directly associated to one another, but I am speaking about their similar market performance here. Northern has done an outstanding job generating market interest and support for their story and really, I have no idea how much farther that’ll go. I do know MGI Securities called for a near term target of $3.50/share and I am sure that’s helping keep it going. Every day they are gaining more and more horsepower to be a veritable leader in the space for the long term.

For Standard Graphite (tsx.v: SGH), they are riding a lot of confidence in the potential of their assets as they are completing and review their recent electromagnetic (EM) surveys, that is for sure. The stock is now pushing a $17 million market cap with a close at $0.80 on Friday. I would anticipate something may be in the works at these levels, as they may look to lock in more capital and keep trucking forward on their large portfolio of assets. We shall see, but moral of the story is way to go. Both these deals are rolling.

A tsx.v: ZEN State of Mind

I wonder if that is indeed the state of mind of Zenyatta’s President as the company has been on a sudden and absolute tear the past few days, with huge gains and massive volumes. Lots of drilling and analysis ongoing from what I understand so here’s hoping for these guys and everyone who’s pilling in that when there is news that it’s as good as the market is suggesting right now.

Comparables Summary

Since my last update on March 18th, we have definitely come to life on all cylinders. Maybe a bit of a PDAC hangover there, but lots of green across the sector since then.

The big boys keep running, and based on the valuations early stage companies like Standard and Strike are realizing, there is definitely a lot of upside potential in the other early stage plays with many of these exploration companies around a $3 to $5 mil market cap. Look for the first next best companies to move soon (clean, with large prospective assets and cash) and then see if those at the very bottom get their stories going in the near term as well. Surely many investors are looking to reload down here for some big quick gains, even if just cycling out of their positions in the bigger plays that have been charging hard.

Still lots of room in the space though, as there haven’t been many large, advanced plays that have come out of the woodwork to spoil the party. Look for the trend of more entrants, acquisitions, financings, and positive gains to continue in my opinion until demand looks like it’ll be fed for the long term. In the meantime, it looks to me like that process is going to take some time..

Graphit-Experten bei Focus Metals, Standard Graphite und Northern Graphite

Ein paar relevante Fakten möchte ich nochmals ausdrücklich hervorheben, viele dürften sie bereits kennen.

Das wichtigste an den Unternehmen ist das Management, das dürfte Jedem klar sein. Zu diesen sollten Experten zählen, die Erfahrungen, Epertise u. Erfolge im Graphit-Sektor vorweisen können.

Bei Focus Metals erfüllt der CEO höchstpersönlich die oben genannten Punkte, das ist sehr gut.

Bei Standard Graphite ist der Chefgeologe der Mann mit der großen Expertise im Graphit-Sektor. Das Interessante an Antoine Fournier im Bezug auf Focus Metals: Er hat das Lac Knife Projekt von Focus entdeckt und war für die Discovery verantwortlich! Gibt es einen besseren Experten in Kanada gegenwärtig? Wohl kaum..

Bei Northern Graphite hat der Präsident bsp. umfassende Erfahrungen im Graphit-Sektor mit Ontario Graphit gemacht und wird diese auch in Produktion begleiten.

DAS sind meines Erachtens sehr bedeutende Fakten - vor allem im Hinblick, dass es gegenwärtig nur ganz wenige Graphit-Experten weltweit im Sektor gibt.

Standard Graphite maintains an Aggressive Exploration Strategy even as it Reduces Risks

Standard Graphite (TSXV: SGH) announced the signing of an option to purchase a 100% stake in 31 mining claims in Quebec located along similar graphite rich gneisses to those in Fermont, Quebec, which known for its rich deposits of large and medium flake graphite.

Graphite is going to be essential in the advancement of clean energy technology thanks to the advances that this material is generating in battery technology, super capacitors for wind turbines, and pebble bed nuclear reactors. Large flake graphite is the most desirable variety of graphite for power generating and storing applications and it has seen sharply rising demand accounting for a fivefold price increase from USD$ 500/ton to USD$ 2,500/ton since 2005 with the steepest price increases occurring over the past two years. China produces some 70% of the world’s graphite; however, Beijing is concerned about the supply of this material and has imposed restrictions on the export of graphite, which has become a strategic resource. The combination of tighter Chinese supply and higher prices presents an opportunity for emerging graphite producers in Canada such as Standard Graphite, ‘Standard’ (TSXV: SGH). Standard’s management has many years of experience in the mining industry: Chris Bogart, the CEO, managed magnum Uranium before ‘Standard’ while the prospecting for graphite is led by a geologist with many years of graphite experience.

Standard is focusing its activities in areas with proven graphite potential in eastern Ontario and western Quebec. The acquisition of the new claims in Quebec, announced today, is part of a wider, and aggressive, company strategy to avoid putting all its ‘exploration eggs’ in one basket, diversifying the prospecting areas, such that it does not have to rely on one project alone to secure an important find; it has a many possibilities. Standard is interested in targeting primarily open pit mines. Last week, Standard announced the completion of an EM survey of its Black Donald property (located 140km. east of Ottawa, ON.), which noted the presence of two large conductors, prompting the acquisition of additional claims that are linked to those conductors. Standard says the conductors have a pattern that is very similar to the Black Donald Mine, which produced highly pure large flake graphite from 1895 to 1950. Prospectair Geosurveys conducted an EM survey to help identify known and potential new mineralization last January. Standard says it is can now proceed with the next phase of the project which includes a field reconnaissance program. Standard’s strategy of focusing on a variety of strategic areas showing high potential for a large find of high purity large flake graphite (the type that is in highest demand) offers interesting opportunities for graphite investors.

Standard Graphite reports Quebec Graphite TDEM Survey Results
Monday, April 16th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Standard Graphite Corp TSXV:SGH announced results of an airborne time-domain electromagnetic (TDEM) survey of its Carheil Graphite Property in northeast Quebec. Data from the 300-line-kilometre survey suggests four distinct conductors cutting across the entire length of the property for strike lengths of up to six kilometres.

The geology of the area is characterized by rocks of the Menihek formation, strongly metamorphosed graphite-bearing pelitic sediments, the company reports. This geological formation accounts for most of the region’s graphite occurrences. The property is approximately 10 kilometres from Focus Metals’ TSXV:FMS Lac Knife Deposit. Carheil now consists of 25 designated claims covering 3,885 hectares.

President/CEO Chris Bogart tells ResourceClips.com, “We started picking up graphite properties early on, back in November. We have 13 properties now, including the new one we announced on April 4.

“Today’s results come from Carheil, which is one of our claims close to the Lac Knife Project. Carheil has a power line and a road running right through the property, so we’ve got great infrastructure. It’s a big mining camp,” he says.

“As soon as the snow clears, which should be about mid-May, we’ll be on the ground in Carheil doing our basic mapping, trenching and sampling to determine some additional results. Our goal this summer is to drill our best targets, Carheil being one of them.

“EM will be the first line of exploration on all the properties. We’re doing that as we speak. We’ll have that complete by day’s end tomorrow. The results will be coming. We’ve already started ground work on our Ontario properties. As the snow melts, we’ll do the mapping, sampling and trenching for all the properties. Once that’s complete, we’ll rank our properties according to the results. And then we’ll start developing those and moving towards drill targets for the summer. Once you’re drilling, the season is 12 months a year.

“We’re still determining which of our properties will be the flagship,” he adds. “That’s part of the process for this exploration season. It’s very ambitious but we’re confident we’ll be able to accomplish it. Our goal for one year from now is to identify our flagship asset and publish our first NI 43-101 resource on it.”

Comparing the graphite sector with the previous boom in rare earths, he says, “I think graphite has more longevity. The metallurgy is substantially less complicated. The cap costs to go into production are significantly lower, so it’s not as prohibitive to a junior. When we talk about production, to talk about $70 million, $80 million in capex versus $600 million, $700 million that you might need in a rare earth company, that’s a substantial difference.”

Bogart emphasizes, “Any investor should lean heavily on management’s expertise and track record. Ours is quite substantial. We’re the only exploration company that I’m aware of in Canada that has a graphite exploration geologist [Antoine Fournier] and a graphite executive with sales, marketing and operations experience [Benoît Gascon]. So we can not only discover, identify, evaluate and graduate a project, but we also have a team that can take it to production. And in industrial minerals, sales and marketing is of absolute cornerstone importance. So we’re well suited to advance those projects. We have the team to do it.”

Standard Graphite Exploration Update in Ontario & Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 18, 2012) - Standard Graphite Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGH) (the "Company"), is pleased to report an update on its 2012 exploration activities.

Standard Graphite has now finished the airborne EM survey in Quebec, which completes the entire 2012 EM program of 3310 line kilometres. Chris Bogart, President and CEO of Standard Graphite, comments: "The success of the EM program has been better than anticipated. The ability of EM to locate conductors on our Little-Bryan, Black Donald, and Carheil properties has been highly effective. We are eagerly anticipating the pending results for our remaining six properties: Sandy Lake, River, Preston, 31 Mile, Notre Dame, and Kiamika."

In addition, the first ground program in Ontario has commenced. The program will begin on Little-Bryan to follow up on the several kilometres of potential graphite mineralization from known graphitic trenches, and a second near-surface conductive trend lying approximately one kilometre to the north (see news release of February 21, 2012). The initial program will consist of prospecting, geological mapping, and sampling along the conductors to prioritize the optimum areas for trenching and a follow up Phase 1 drill program.

Antoine Fournier, P.Geo., manages Standard's exploration and development programs and is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. He supervised the preparation of the technical information in this release.

About Standard Graphite

Standard Graphite Corp. is focused exclusively on the exploration and development of a large portfolio of flake graphite properties in Canada. The company is rapidly positioning itself as North America's premier pure-play graphite exploration company and it controls 100% interest in 13 highly prospective graphite properties within known graphite districts in both Quebec and Ontario. An aggressive 2012 exploration strategy has commenced and will be implemented by a geologic team with the pedigree of a previous world-class graphite discovery.

Graphite Report: April 2012

The first quarter of the graphite boom in 2012 has been one of the best quarters for a group of stocks since uranium started to take off in 2004. It has been nothing short of extraordinary considering all other materials stocks continue to struggle to attract investment in 2012. It shows how strong this emerging investment story is. The graphite theme has all the elements of the perfect storm. It has strong industrial growth with a large market and it has strong incremental demand coming from multiple fronts. Li-Ion batteries, nuclear pebble bed reactors and eventually fuel cells will all add to the demand curve for graphite over the next decade and beyond..

Investing in Graphite's Growth: Kevin Puil
TICKERS: FMS, MEGA, NGC; NGPHF, SGH, SER
Source: Brian Sylvester of The Critical Metals Report (4/10/12)

As the boundaries of technology continually expand, so does the demand for graphite. With uses developing and supply mainly controlled by China, prices for graphite should continue to climb, says Kevin Puil, senior analyst for the Encompass Fund and portfolio manager with San Francisco-based Malcolm H. Gissen & Associates. In this exclusive interview with The Critical Metals Report, Puil shares some junior miners set to soar alongside demand.

The Critical Metals Report: Over the last two to three years, your firm has had a lot of success with small-cap mining equities, especially those involving rare earth elements (REEs). Are you hoping to achieve similar success with small-cap graphite equities?

Kevin Puil: I am. Since I joined the firm three years ago, I've always tried to find great opportunities and put our fund and clients in a position to benefit from them. This is definitely the case with graphite companies.

TCMR: China controls the majority of the world's graphite supply and has implemented export quotas and duties. This has caused the price of graphite to more than double in some cases. Do you see more price pressure ahead?

KP: China definitely has a stranglehold on the global graphite supply, producing nearly 70% of the world's supply. Its 20% export duty, 17% value added tax and export licensing system should further tighten supply and drive prices higher.

TCMR: How do graphite plays differ from rare earth plays?

KP: Rare earths often involve large capital expenditure (capex) requirements and complex metallurgy. Graphite, on the other hand, is relatively simple to mine. It's an excellent electrical and heat conductor and shows up well on electromagnetic surveys, which offer an inexpensive way to explore for deposits. Most flake and amorphous graphite is found near the surface, reducing the risk and uncertainty involved in drilling deep deposits. This also shortens the time from discovery to production. A good deal of flake and amorphous graphite is mined using the open-pit method, which is also comparatively inexpensive. The majority of graphite is crushed, ground and floated, as opposed to rare earths, which are often refractory and need to be roasted at a high cost.

TCMR: What are the primary uses for graphite in manufacturing?

KP: Amorphous and lump graphite has long been used in refractories, steel, brake linings, lubricants and pencils. However, a lot of attention these days is being placed on flake graphite, which is sought after for its applications in new technologies like lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, solar panels, pebble bed nuclear reactors and vanadium redox batteries. Less than half of the graphite produced is of the flake variety, and this, coupled with the increased demand for this essential mineral, has seen flake graphite command a much higher price than fine-mesh or amorphous graphite.

TCMR: Will new technologies drive growth in the graphite industry?

KP: Absolutely. Currently, there is no substitute for graphite in many technologies, such as lithium-ion batteries. Between cell phones, tablets, laptops, hybrid and electric cars, all of which require a lot of graphite, the industry is growing at 25—30% annually. Large-scale uses include hybrid cars, which can require up to 40 pounds of graphite for the battery alone, while the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner's fuselage is made from a graphite composite. Vanadium redox batteries are used to store energy generated from wind turbines and solar panels and require up to 300 tons (t) of graphite per 1,000 megawatts of storage. This is all flake graphite. In addition, pebble bed nuclear reactors, which are slated to come online this decade, require 3,000 t of graphite to start and 1,000 t a year to operate.

TCMR: There are lots of misconceptions about graphite. Fact or myth? Natural graphite is more expensive than synthetic graphite.

KP: Myth. Synthetic graphite is more expensive than natural.

TCMR: Fact or myth? Graphite is used more in steel manufacturing than in batteries.

KP: That is a fact.

TCMR: But batteries use more of the large-flake graphite.

KP: That's right.

TCMR: Fact or myth? Large-flake graphite deposits generally make for low-cost mines.

KP: That's a fact. Most of the large-flake graphite deposits are found at or near surface and are amenable to open-pit mining.

TCMR: Fact or myth: Graphite flake size is more important than carbon content.

KP: They're both important. Most high-tech manufacturers would prefer to use high-grade (94–99% graphitic carbon), large-flake (+80 mesh) graphite for their products, so they're equally important.

TCMR: Fact or myth? Graphite metallurgy is less important than it is with rare earth deposits.

KP: Graphite metallurgy is simpler to deal with than rare earths. It's equally important, but less complex.

TCMR: Do you think we're going to see an explosion in graphite-focused equities listings, as we did with REEs?

KP: I don't think there will be the same explosion of listings in graphite as there was in the REE space, but there will definitely be more as the public becomes aware of the importance of graphite. However, there aren't as many potential deposits out there to justify dozens of new companies.

TCMR: What are some key factors that make Malcolm H. Gissen & Associates write a check to a small-cap graphite company seeking investors?

KP: I have a personal checklist of factors I consider before investing in any exploration or mining company. Among others, some of them include: Is management good? Are they experienced? Are they capable of developing this project? The deposit has got to have good grade and quality. I need to see good infrastructure close by or at a reasonable capex to develop. Permitting has to be relatively easy. Bottom line: Is it mineable? Do the economics make sense?

...

TCMR: What about on the exploration side?

KP: On the exploration side, I like Standard Graphite Corp. (SGH:TSX.V). It has a large portfolio of 12 graphite projects in Ontario and Québec, some of which are adjacent to the past-producing Black Donald graphite mine and Northern Graphite's Bissett Creek project. It just completed a successful airborne electromagnetic survey on a large portion of the Québec property and got back very favorable results–some of the properties lit up like a Christmas tree.

Its management team is probably one of the only graphite exploration companies out there with a head geologist who's got graphite exploration experience. He discovered Focus Metals Inc.'s (FMS:TSX.V) Lac Knife graphite deposit. In addition, the past president of Hathor Exploration, which was recently purchased by Rio Tinto (RIO:NYSE; RIO:ASX), also joined Standard. It has good projects, decent board members, good management and a favorable share structure.

TCMR: Does it need to focus on one property specifically?

KP: Yes, it has several potential flagship properties. It's going to have to narrow that down and choose which property to go with. I imagine that it will develop a couple and sell the others off. But as it stands, Standard probably has the best pipeline of properties out of any I've seen.

...

TCMR: What sort of advice would you offer an investor who is new to the graphite space?

KP: The advice I would give new investors is to do your due diligence. As with any other mining company, make sure that it has a decent deposit with all the right ingredients: infrastructure, management, grade, purity, that it's able to be mined, that it's economic and that it can be a standalone mine if it isn't acquired. Keep in mind, only 2–3% of junior exploration companies actually become mines.

TCMR: Thanks for your time.

KP: You're welcome, anytime.

Graphit: Da kommt was Großes auf uns zu

Keine Frage: 2012 hat schon einen neuen Rohstofftrend hervorgebracht: Graphit. Dieser Rohstoff hat über Jahre hinweg an den Börsen kaum eine Rolle gespielt. Seit einigen Monaten tauchen immer mehr spannende Firmen auf. Doch erste Warnungen sprechen schon von einer Übertreibung, wie es zuletzt bei den Seltenen Erden der Fall war. Die Graphit-Story ist aber ganz anders. Ich sage ganz klar: Das kommt was Großes auf uns zu.

Standard Graphite Explores 13 Quebec and Ontario Properties

By Greg Klein

With 13 wholly-owned properties in Quebec and Ontario, Standard Graphite TSXV:SGH is a company in search of a flagship. But within a year, President/CEO Chris Bogart maintains, Standard will have designated its focal point and developed a 43-101 resource. Then, he adds, with the expertise of its experienced graphite team, the company can take a worthy project all the way into production.

Just last week, Standard finished a 3,310-line-kilometre airborne electromagnetic survey over its entire domains. “The results will be coming,” says Bogart. “We’ve already started ground work on our Ontario properties. As the snow melts, we’ll do the mapping, sampling and trenching for all the properties. Once that’s complete, we’ll rank our properties according to the results. And then we’ll start developing those and moving towards drill targets for the summer. Once you’re drilling, the season is 12 months a year.”

Standard began acquiring graphite properties in November. All are located in the carbon-rich Grenville geological sub-province and most of them in the vicinity of noteworthy neighbours. Three properties sit just within the Labrador Trough in northeast Quebec, five in southwest Quebec, three more in southeast Ontario and a straggler near the deep-sea port of Sept-Îles, Quebec.



Of the Ontario projects, Bogart points to Little Bryan and Black Donald as standouts that also enjoy excellent infrastructure. The 9,000-hectare Black Donald Property surrounds a former mine that produced both amorphous and flake graphite from 1896 to 1954. Amorphous graphite is the type employed in steelmaking, as well as auto clutches and brake linings, sports equipment and other uses. The more expensive flake graphite is the type associated with emerging needs: lithium-ion batteries, vanadium redox batteries, pebble-bed nuclear reactors, solar panels and fuel cells associated with energy storage, generation and efficiency. Graphite’s unique qualities as an extremely light, strong, heat-resistant and conductive material open up a host of present uses and future possibilities.

Going back to mid-century, the Black Donald Mine’s final 10 years of operation reportedly produced grades between 25% and 30% carbon. In its time, it was “one of the highest-grade producing projects in the world,” Bogart says. The company reports its EM survey found two long, well-defined conductors, possibly indicating mineralization that replicates the former mine’s trend. “That tells us that geological area is amenable to graphite occurrences over large stretches of ground. There’s definitely the potential for a lookalike mine.”

Groundwork has already begun there and on the 2,800-hectare Little Bryan, where exploration will follow up on 1989 trenching and a recently found five-kilometre near-surface conductive trend. Along with Standard‘s B Lyall Property, Little Bryan and Black Donald share proximity to Northern Graphite’s TSXV:NGC Bissett Creek large-flake graphite project as well as Ontario Graphite’s Kearney Mine, scheduled to resume production in 3Q this year.

Carheil, one of the northeast Quebec properties, also looks promising. EM results suggest four conductors with strike lengths of up to six kilometres. The 3,885-hectare property lies about 10 kilometres from Focus Metals’ TSXV:FMS high-grade, large-flake Lac Knife Project. Spring thaw cooperating, groundwork should begin about mid-May to be followed by summer drilling.

“Carheil has a power line and a road running right through the property, so we’ve got great infrastructure considering where it’s at,” Bogart says. “It’s a big mining camp.” Standard‘s nearby Sandy Lake and Sandy Lake NE are also prospective targets.

Five so-far underexplored properties in southwest Quebec share proximity to Timcal Graphite & Carbon’s Lac-des-Îles Mine, the larger of Canada’s two graphite producers. Simon Moores, a graphite authority who writes for Industrial Minerals, reports that after decades of mining Timcal plans to move its operation to a second, nearby pit later this year. “They reckon that’s good until 2018,” he says. Timcal has other targets on its privately owned land as well, the result of ongoing drilling. Standard awaits EM results on four of its five properties before mapping, sampling and trenching begin.

The company has properties galore, but Bogart emphasizes that Standard‘s team plays a crucial role. “We’re the only exploration company that I’m aware of in Canada that has a graphite exploration geologist and a graphite executive with sales, marketing and operations experience. So we can not only discover, identify, evaluate and graduate a project, but we also have a team that can take it to production.”

Chief Geologist Antoine Fournier’s 20 years of experience includes his role in the discovery of the Lac Knife Deposit. Senior VP Business Development Benoit Gascon was President of Stratmin Graphite, past owner of Lac-des-Îles. While there, he negotiated Stratmin’s takeover to form Timcal, where he remained in senior roles.

The importance of a graphite geologist like Fournier is clear enough. Gascon brings an additional advantage. “In industrial minerals, sales and marketing are of absolute cornerstone importance,” Bogart explains. “So we’re well suited to advance those projects.” Bogart himself was co-founder of Magnum Uranium, a TSXV company which was bought out by TSX-listed Energy Fuels.

Bogart will address OnPage Media’s May 2 Graphite Express-Conference in Toronto. “I’m looking forward to it,” he says. “I always love telling the story to new people.”

He concludes, “Any investor should lean heavily on management’s expertise and track record. Ours is quite substantial. It’s a great management team that’s had a lot of success in this sector…. We’ve been doing well. We’ve had good results, we’re providing value.”

At press time, Standard Graphite had 24.1 million shares outstanding at $0.55 for a market cap of $13.3 million.

Schöner Abstieg in den letzten Tagen.
Könnte einem ja doch noch die Chance auf einen Einstieg bieten, z.B. im Bereich von 30 Cent.
Oder gibt es einen Grund für den Abstieg (hatte es bisher rein als charttechnische Korrektur abgetan)?

Standard Graphite Discovers Significant Conductor Over Sandy Lake Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - Standard Graphite Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGH) (the "Company"), is pleased to announce that the interpretation of the airborne geophysical TDEM survey, conducted in March 2012 by Aeroquest Inc., has outlined a significant conductor over its Sandy Lake property located some 20 kilometres southeast of the town of Fermont, Québec.

The Sandy Lake Property, acquired in the fall of 2011 for its graphite potential, is part of a series of claim blocks designated around the town of Fermont, Quebec, showing the same geology as the nearby Lac Knife deposit (Focus Metals), which is approximately 30 kilometres west. Two (2) showings are located on the eastern shore of Sandy Lake and some 68 designated claims covering some 11,700 hectares were staked by the company to cover the zone of interest.

The airborne survey covered the entire claim block and consisted of 340 line kilometres measuring the magnetic and electromagnetic (EM) responses of the underlying rocks. The interpretation of this data has linked the two (2) anomalies and both are associated with an extensive conductor measuring approximately 8 kilometres that shows fold structures in its northern and central portions. Fold structures are considered important exploration targets where graphite has potentially migrated during metamorphism. The conductor outlined on the project is coincident with the known occurrences confirming that the EM signature is clearly associated with a graphitic horizon.

On the surface, rocks of the Menihek formation, strongly metamorphosed graphite-bearing pelitic sediments, characterize the geology of the area. This geological formation accounts for the vast majority of the graphite occurrences in the region.

http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/Sandy.pdf

Chris Bogart, President and CEO of Standard Graphite comments: "We are enthusiastic about the results at Sandy Lake showing yet another spectacular conductor coincident with our 2 known graphite occurrences. Our exploration teams are now preparing to embark on an exciting summer field program scheduled to commence in early June."

Aeroquest International Ltd., using a helicopter rigged with a magnetometer and TDEM systems, performed the airborne survey and post treatment of the data. The survey was designed to optimize the response from potential conductors and to discriminate between the types of conductors.

Analyst Commentary: Standard Graphite Acquires Advanced Graphite Project in Quebec
Monday, April 30, 2012

Standard Graphite (TSXV: SGH) has recently inked a deal to acquire the Mousseau East graphite deposit, situated just 50 km from Timcal Canada’s producing Lac-des-Iles graphite mine.

This acquisition provides Standard Graphite with an advanced flagship project that if proven to be metallurgically attractive can potentially be fast-tracked to production.

In addition, the company holds 14 highly prospective graphite properties within known graphite districts in both Quebec and Ontario and plans to aggressively evaluate and advance the best ones.

Southwestern Quebec is host to some of the most favourable geological terrain for graphite exploration in Canada and is known for hosting quality graphite resources such as the Lac-des-Iles mine operated by Timcal.

The Lac-des-Iles graphite mine, located 50 km from the Mousseau East deposit and 150 km northwest of Montréal, Québec (Refer to figure 1), has been in operation for 20 years producing graphite products of various sizes and purities. The deposit contains close to 25 million tonnes, including 5.2 million tonnes to be mined by open pit at a grade of around 7.42% Cg (Carbon in graphite).

The Mousseau East Deposit was originally discovered in 1983 and outlined by 62 diamond drill holes (4,996 m). Two historical resource estimates were calculated but under current reporting standards they do not comply with NI-43-101 requirements. (Refer to Figure 2).

The project is blessed with good infrastructure and lies next to a highway. In addition, the current historical resource was only calculated to a depth of 40 m. As a result, there is excellent potential to expand the resource along strike as well as to depth.

The historical resource calculated by Graphicor weighs in at 598,400 tonnes averaging 8.29% Cg (carbon in graphite) in the Proven category, 219,450 tonnes averaging 8.13% Cg in the Probable category and 288,760 tonnes averaging 7.85% Cg in the Possible category. (This is not NI-43-101 compliant).

Standard Graphite intends to complete the work necessary to verify the resource estimate at Mousseau East and bring it up to current NI-43-101 standards. At last report the company planned to spend in excess of $5 million this year to evaluate and advance its project portfolio.

Evaluating Graphite Deposits

When looking at graphite deposits one of the most important things to note is the percentage of flake verses fine graphite. Flake graphite is high value and high growth while fine graphite has lower value and is sometimes not even salable. Another key aspect when evaluating graphite deposits is to determine the carbon content of the concentrate – the higher the carbon concentrate the purer the product and the higher price it can fetch. These questions can only be answered by metallurgical testing and in-situ valuations based on grade alone should not be relied upon.

Graphite price increases with flake size and concentrate purity. Currently concentrates are being sought after with in excess of 94% carbon content and that are medium to large flake in grain size. Some examples of flake size/purity and price are as follows:

• +32 mesh (0.5 mm) super flake with 98% carbon purity is +$3000 per tonne
• +50 mesh (0.297 mm) jumbo flake with 97% carbon purity is +$3000 per tonne
• +80 mesh (0.177 mm) large flake with 96% carbon purity is +$2750 per tonne
• +150 mesh (0.105 mm) medium to fine flake with 94% carbon purity is +$2000 per tonne
• -150 mesh is unsuitable for new applications and sometimes not salable

What does mesh size mean?

Mesh basically refers the number of holes in a sieve. As the number describing the mesh size increases, the size of the particles decreases. Higher mesh numbers refer to finer material. Mesh size is not a precise measurement of particle size.
A minus or plus symbol in front of the mesh size indicates whether the material is coarser or finer that that mesh size. For example A –150-mesh would mean that all particles smaller than 150-mesh would pass through the sieve. A +150 mesh means that all the particles 200-mesh or larger are retained.

Market for flake graphite

Global market consumption of natural graphite has increased from approximately 600,000 tonnes in 2000 to roughly 1.2 million tonnes in 2011. Demand for graphite has been increasing by approximately 5% per year since 2000 due to the continuing modernization of China, India and other emerging economies, resulting in strong demand from traditional end-users such as the steel and automotive industries.

Applications, such as lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, and nuclear and solar power, have the potential to create significant incremental demand growth. There is roughly 10 to 20 times more graphite in a lithium-ion battery than there is lithium. Demand for graphite is expected to rise as electric vehicles and lithium battery technology are adopted.

Natural graphite comes in several forms: flake, amorphous and lump. Of the 1.2 million tonnes of graphite produced annually, about 40% is of the most desirable flake type. China, which produces about 70% of the world’s graphite, is seeing production and export growth levelling, and export taxes and a licensing system have been instituted.

Bottom line

The market for high quality flake graphite is expected to continue to grow. Standard Graphite has acquired an advanced graphite project that has good access and infrastructure in a stable region in Canada known for producing quality graphite.

The next major catalysts that will most likely propel Standard Graphite will be the verification of the resource at its Mousseau East Deposit and the determination of the metallurgical quality of the graphite in the deposit.

The company has a tight share structure with only 24 million shares outstanding and a market capitalization of about $11 million and about $1 million in the bank.

Seit dem Höchststand von 1,08 Ca. Dollar Anfang April hat es gestern kurzzeitig ein retracement zurück auf 0,405 Ca. Dollar gegeben. Das entspricht in etwa 61,8% und damit einem klassischen Fibonacci Niveau, welches eine Trendwende einläuten würde.

Lest dazu auch die den heutigen Artikel von Frank Szillat zur Preisentwicklung von Silber.

61,8% ist ein so genanntes Fibonacci-Retracements, auf das viele Börsianer schwören. Der Name Fibonacci taucht auch in der Natur, der Kunst und der Architektur auf. Sie spielen aber auch an den Kapitalmärkten eine große Rolle. Die häufigsten Fibonacci Retracement-Niveaus sind 38,2%, 50,0% und eben jene 61,8%. Ein solches punktgenaues Retracement signalisiert nicht selten den Beginn eines neuen Trendes. Dass passt, denn wir favorisieren beim Silber nach wie vor einen neuerlichen Preisschub in Richtung 40 USD.

Standard Graphite: Weitere Ergebnisse für aussichtsreiches Projekt

Der Graphit-Sektor erlebt in Kanada derzeit einen Boom. Ein Signal sind viele neue Firmen mit dem Fokus auf dem neuen heißen Rohstoff. Zudem findet heute schon die zweite spezielle Graphit-Konferenz statt: nach der Premiere in Vancouver im Januar mit 5 Firmen präsentieren sich heute in Toronto schon 13 Firmen. Dazu zählt auch Standard Graphite, wobei das Unternehmen zusätzlich auch in dieser Woche den Newsflow fortsetzt.

In diesen Tagen hat der kanadische Explorer die Ergebnisse von EM-Gutachten für das Sandy Lake Projekt vorgestellt. Die neuen Ergebnisse bestätigen die schon nachgewiesenen Trends. Somit bekommt Standard Graphite jetzt eine größere Gewissheit über die Graphit Trends vor Ort.

Die Lage des Sanda Lake Projekts ist auf jeden Fall aussichtsreich: So befindet sich das Projekt nur rund 30km vom Lac Knife Projekt von Focus Metals entfernt. Die nun vorgelegten elektromagnetischen Gutachten haben zwei neue Anomalien hervorgebracht. Ein Trend weist dabei immerhin eine Länge von 8km und eine durchschnittliche Breite von 500m auf.

Für das Management von Standard Graphite bilden diesen Anomalien genügend Potenzial, um in der Zone nach lukrativen Zielen für ein Bohrprogramm zu suchen. Um eine größere Gewissheit zu bekommen, sollen beim Sandy Lake Projekt in einigen Wochen die Feldarbeiten starten.

Laut der schon vorliegenden Ergebnisse könnte sich ein starker Graphittrend direkt unter der Erdoberfläche befinden. Die dort nun gefundene geologische Formation ähnelt eben sehr stark den in dieser Gegend schon bekannten Graphit-Mineralisierungen.
Explorationsprogramm für Sandy Lake Projekt wird ausgebaut

Das alles sind weitere Hinweise auf die Attraktivität des Sandy Lake Projekts. Aber das ist nur ein Eisen, welches Standard Graphite im Feuer hat. Das Portfolio an verschiedenen Projekten umfasst aktuell mehr als 10 Graphit-Projekte. Und Standard Graphite hat hier ganz klar einen Zeitvorteil.

Immerhin hat das Unternehmen das Paket schon vor einigen Monaten zusammengestellt, als der Graphit-Trend gerade erst begonnen hatte. Viele Firmen, die jetzt erst auf den Trend aufspringen, müssen sich mit den Projekten begnügen, die noch übrig sind.

Sollte sich also in den nächsten Monaten ein oder zwei Hauptprojekte bei Standard Graphite herausbilden, wird es sicherlich auch noch gute Chancen geben, andere Projekte am Markt zu verkaufen, denn dieses Geschäft läuft aktuell auf Hochtouren.

Graphite price increases with flake size and concentrate purity. Currently concentrates are being sought after with in excess of 94% carbon content and that are medium to large flake in grain size. Some examples of flake size/purity and price are as follows:

• +32 mesh (0.5 mm) super flake with 98% carbon purity is +$3000 per tonne
• +50 mesh (0.297 mm) jumbo flake with 97% carbon purity is +$3000 per tonne
• +80 mesh (0.177 mm) large flake with 96% carbon purity is +$2750 per tonne
• +150 mesh (0.105 mm) medium to fine flake with 94% carbon purity is +$2000 per tonne
• -150 mesh is unsuitable for new applications and sometimes not salable

What does mesh size mean?

Mesh basically refers the number of holes in a sieve. As the number describing the mesh size increases, the size of the particles decreases. Higher mesh numbers refer to finer material. Mesh size is not a precise measurement of particle size.
A minus or plus symbol in front of the mesh size indicates whether the material is coarser or finer that that mesh size. For example A –150-mesh would mean that all particles smaller than 150-mesh would pass through the sieve. A +150 mesh means that all the particles 200-mesh or larger are retained.

Market for flake graphite

Global market consumption of natural graphite has increased from approximately 600,000 tonnes in 2000 to roughly 1.2 million tonnes in 2011. Demand for graphite has been increasing by approximately 5% per year since 2000 due to the continuing modernization of China, India and other emerging economies, resulting in strong demand from traditional end-users such as the steel and automotive industries.

Applications, such as lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, and nuclear and solar power, have the potential to create significant incremental demand growth. There is roughly 10 to 20 times more graphite in a lithium-ion battery than there is lithium. Demand for graphite is expected to rise as electric vehicles and lithium battery technology are adopted.

Natural graphite comes in several forms: flake, amorphous and lump. Of the 1.2 million tonnes of graphite produced annually, about 40% is of the most desirable flake type. China, which produces about 70% of the world’s graphite, is seeing production and export growth levelling, and export taxes and a licensing system have been instituted.

Bottom line

The market for high quality flake graphite is expected to continue to grow. Standard Graphite has acquired an advanced graphite project that has good access and infrastructure in a stable region in Canada known for producing quality graphite.

The next major catalysts that will most likely propel Standard Graphite will be the verification of the resource at its Mousseau East Deposit and the determination of the metallurgical quality of the graphite in the deposit.

The company has a tight share structure with only 24 million shares outstanding and a market capitalization of about $11 million and about $1 million in the bank.

Standard Graphite Identifies EM Conductor Coincident With River Property Graphite Occurrence

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 9, 2012) - Standard Graphite Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGH) (the "Company"), is pleased to report that it has received the results from the electromagnetic airborne geophysical survey on its River property, Québec. These results again confirmed that the graphite occurrence present at surface is associated with a conductive horizon extending for several kilometres.

The results from the survey outline a well-defined conductor in association with metasedimentary rocks. The existing surface occurrence being coincident with the conductor confirms the graphitic nature of the EM response.

The River Property is located some 20 kilometres north of Sept-Iles in the Grenville Province. The Grenville is a geological province characterized by high-grade metamorphic rocks of Proterozoic age and is well recognized for its numerous graphite occurrences. Standard's properties all lie within the Grenville in the graphite domains.

These results were the last ones expected from the airborne survey completed earlier in March of 2012 by Aeroquest International Ltd. on the company's Eastern Quebec properties.

Please click the following link for the EM Map for River:

http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/River.pdf

Chris Bogart, President and CEO of Standard Graphite comments: "This equates to 3 out of 3 for our properties located in Eastern Quebec having excellent EM results that require additional exploration programs. The targets are now being picked for the ground follow-up. We are pleased with the progression of the Phase I field program on our Ontario properties and we are currently gearing up for the start of the Phase I field program for the Quebec properties."

Aeroquest International Ltd., using a helicopter rigged with a magnetometer and TDEM systems, performed the airborne survey and post treatment of the data. The survey was designed to optimize the response from potential conductors and to discriminate between the types of conductors.

Ontario Property Update

The field reconnaissance phase is now completed on the Black Donald and Little-Bryan properties, in Ontario and a series of samples were sent to lab for assay. Results are expected in early June 2012 and will serve in orienting the Phase II field program scheduled for later this month.

Antoine Fournier P. Geo., manages Standard's exploration and development programs and is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. He supervised the preparation of the technical information in this release.

Der Wert kommt mal auf meine watchlist.

Fragen in die Runde:
In der aktuellen Präsentation werden die Kosten für das 2012er Explorationsprogramm mit 5.1Mio beziffert. Cash ist 1.45Mio vorhanden.
Wurde schonmal kommuniziert, wie die Kosten abgesichert werden?

Wann kann man denn mit cash flow aus wenigstens einem der Projekte rechnen?

Danke und Gruß

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.191.675 von bradetti am 21.05.12 14:25:18@ Bradetti

Wie du richtig gelesen hast, will Standard dieses Jahr über 5 Millionen US Dollar in die Exploration der 13 Graphitprojekte investieren. Der Großteil dieser Summe wird jedoch erst im Sommer bis Herbst fällig werden und zwar für folgende, geplante Programme:
• ~4,000 m of DDH Drilling to test 5-6 priority targets (July-Aug)
• Identify Flagship project for rapid Development (8,000 m) (Sept-Oct)

Deswegen kommen sie auch gerade nicht in Finanzierungsdruck. Sie hatten in den letzten Monaten eine burn rate zw. 200.000-400.000 US Dollar pro Monat (vgl. financial reports auf sedar. Demnach werden wir meines Erachtens im Juni oder Juli die nächste Finanzierung sehen. Sie werden mE mindestens 2 Millionen Dollar bei der nächsten Finanzierung einnehmen. Aufgrund der hervoragenden Aktienstruktur werden sie auch eine moderate Verwässerung gut verkraften. Weiter kann man davon ausgehen, dass die nächste Finanzierung zum Großteil erneut von Insidern und möglicherweise auch den ersten Instis gestemmt wird. So steigen die Insiderholdings weiter an, und dies verknappt den wichtigen free float.

Bzgl. deiner Frage über den cash flow. Spielt überhaupt keine Rolle gegenwärtig, und mE auch nicht vor 2014/15. Klares Ziel des Management ist es, eine neue signifikante Discovery zu erzielen und die nächste potentielle Graphitmine zu finden - und das braucht bekanntlich Zeit und Vertrauen. Wir sahen die letzten 5 Monate den Beginn eines aggressiven, aber stets bedachten Explorationsprogramms. Sie haben sich durch den ambitionierten Fahrplan ehrgeizige Ziele gesetzt und sind auf dem field voll auf Kurs. Völlig konträr zur Entwicklung des Aktienkurses - so ist Börse eben und genau deswegen hat man die Chance überproportional zu profitieren. Nach einem völlig überzogenen und panischen Abverkauf von über 77% in weniger als 2 Monaten, hat man nun die Chance quasi wieder auf dem Anfangsniveau in diese Story einzusteigen. Und das von dem Hintergrund, dass sich die fundamentalen Fakten und der Ausblick nicht verschlechtert haben - im Gegenteil: Standard hat die letzten Monate große Fortschritte gemacht. Habe alle Graphitexplorer intensiv analysiert und bewertet, Standard steht mit Abstand an erster Stelle. Take your chance!

Abermals ansehnliche Ergebnisse bei den elektromagnetischen Gutachten, nun von der Kiamika Liegenschaft.

Noch 3 EM-Gutachten stehen aus, Standard plant diesen Monat mit den nächsten Explorationsprogrammen zu beginnen. Ziel von diesen ist es, die besten Bohrziele in ausgewählten Projekten abzustecken, um dann im Juli/August mit dem ersten Bohrprogramm starten zu können..

Graphitsektor: Ist die Party schon vorbei?

Nachdem Graphitaktien im ersten Quartal 2012 nur eine Richtung kannten, gingen sie Anfang April in eine heftige Korrektur über. Seither haben sich viele Graphitaktien halbiert, einige haben sogar noch mehr an Unternehmenswert eingebüßt. Doch was hat sich an der Graphitstory seit dem ersten Quartal verändert? An der übergeordneten Makrostory, die eine steigende Nachfrage und eine Angebotsverknappung erwarten lässt, hat sich nichts verändert. Wie in jedem Trendsektor ist die Volatilität hoch und es kommt nach starken Kursanstiegen zu scharfen Korrekturen. Das ist für die mittel- und langfristige Entwicklung keinesfalls negativ zu sehen, so wird ein gesunder Trend gebildet..

Gute Zusammenfassung der letzten news:

"Wie bereits angesprochen, hat die Qualität (Flockenart, Beschaffenheit) und der Gehalt (möglichst hochgradig) zentrale Bedeutung. Dieses Potential stützt sich zudem auf hochgradige, historische Graphit-Proben, die auf Preston entnommen wurden.

Und, so Chris Bogart weiter, Preston sei auch deshalb besonders interessant, weil nun der Weg frei sei für weitere größere Entdeckungen.

Eine Karte kann unter http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/Preston.pdf eingesehen werden.

Ziel der Gesellschaft dürfte wohl nicht der möglichst schnelle Produktionsbeginn sein, sondern eine möglichst aussichtsreiche Lagerstätte darzustellen, zeitnah Partner für das Projekt zu finden oder einen lukrativen Verkauf zu tätigen.

Insgesamt besitzt die Gesellschaft 12 Graphit-Lagerstätten in Quebec und Ontario zu 100 Prozent."

Steigende Nachfrage nach Elektrobatterien sorgt für glänzende Aussichten im Graphitsektor

21. Juni 2012 um 14:42 von Oliver Groß

Graphit ist einer der wenigen Rohstoffe, der sich den Turbolenzen an den Rohstoff-märkten in den letzten zwei Jahren weitgehend entziehen konnte. Seit Jahren steigen die Preise für die unterschiedlichen Graphitarten, sie haben sich im letzten Jahrzehnt vervielfacht. Da fällt die jüngste Konsolidierung nicht schwer ins Gewicht: Im Mai 2012 gab es die erste Preiskorrektur nach einem pausenlosen Anstieg seit mehr als 3 Jahren. Die größten Preissteigerungen gab es während dieser Zeit bei den hochwertigsten Graphitkonzentraten. Diese werden vor allem in modernen Elektro-batterien eingesetzt und sind bei der Herstellung von Hightech-Produkten wie Carbon sehr gefragt..

Habe Einiges gesammelt die letzten Wochen und plane auf dem Niveau weiter zuzukaufen. Wir stehen im Aktienkurs quasi wieder ganz am Anfang, obwohl es gute Fortschritte gab und im Graphitsektor egtl. auch alles im grünen Bereich ist. Halte Standard aufgrund des herausragenden Managements und den zahlreichen guten Projekten für einen der interessantesten Explorer. Demnach sehe ich mittel- und langfristig hier gerade gute EKs .

Stehst du im BID oder erwartest du noch tiefere Kurse?

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.318.846 von Kongo-Otto am 25.06.12 19:56:00"..Die Mousseau East-Lagerstätte liegt im nordwestlichen Quebec, Kanada, und nur 50 Kilometer entfernt von der Lac-des-Iles Graphitmine von Timcal Canada. Standard Graphite erweitert also seine Liegenschaften immer weiter.

Wie das Unternehmen vermeldete, soll dort eine NI-43-101 konforme Ressource nachgewiesen werden. Im Gegensatz zu den übrigen Liegenschaften liegt hier bereits eine historische Ressource mit hochgradigen Ergebnissen vor. Graphicor hatte bis 1993 das Gebiet exploriert, dabei sogar 62 Bohrungen niedergebracht, dann aber aufgrund des niedrigen Graphit-Preises die Arbeiten eingestellt. Da das Vorkommen bis zur Oberfläche reicht, beziehungsweise in sehr geringer Tiefe lokalisiert ist, wird ein kostengünstiger Übertage-Abbau bis lediglich 40 Meter Tiefe möglich sein. Da die historische Ressource einen Graphit-Gehalt von rund acht Prozent im Gestein zeigt, dürfte ein Abbau sehr lukrativ sein. Standard-Firmenchef Chris Bogart sprach daher auch von einem „Meilenstein“ für die Gesellschaft."

Absolut, bei diesen schwierigen Märkten ist das auch ein Blick in die Glaskugel. Sämtliche Juniors können schließlich jegliche top news bringen, honoriert wird nur noch wenig. Dazu kommen die Juniors auch immer schwieriger an Geld, und wenn doch - dann führt das in vielen Fällen zu einer enormern Verwässerung - ein Teufelskreis. Hoffe Standard kann die nächste Finanzierung, die demnächst anstehen wird, auf einem höheren Level durchführen, oder dass sie sich nur mit einer geringen Finanzierung zunächst zufrieden geben, und dann bei signifikanten Erfolgen versuchen, größere Summen auf einem anderen Niveau einzunehmen.

"Was würdest du denn hier als fairen Kurs bzw. faire MK sehen"

Wenn man die Story an sich betrachtet und bewertet, dann ist sie spottbillig. Nur was heißt das schon in Zeiten, in denen Juniorunternehmen praktisch unbedeutend sind. Standard's Management gehört zu den besten im Sektor, die Projekte wurden aufgrund etlicher starken Kennziffern und Aussichten ausgewählt und erste Explorationsprogramme erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Das Management apellierte bereits ganz am Anfang, dass man eine langfristig Etablierung anstrebt, das gefällt mir. Die Graphit-Story ist von den fundamentalen Daten & Preisen her, ebenfalls voll auf Kurs - nur das sieht man natürlich bei den Aktien gerade keinesfalls. Aber so ist Börse eben, in Zeiten hoher Vola und Unsicherheit nimmt die Rationalität rapide ab, das kennen wir im Rohstoffsektor schließlich schon lange.

Halte aufgrund der zahlreichen, aussichtsreichen Projekte inkl. der hoch gradigen Graphitressource mit rund 80.000 Tonnen derweil eine MarketCap von 10-15 Millionen USD für angemessen - auch gestützt auf die gute Aktienstruktur und die Top Leute, welche an Bord sind. Die meisten Projekte können jedoch nur einen jungen wirtschaftlichen Fortschritt vorweisen. Wenn sie z.B. die historische Ressource auf dem Hauptprojekt erfolgreich updaten & erweitern, dann würde das gleich eine Doppelte Bewertung rechtfertigen. Alles andere hängt vom Verlauf der Operationen und Fortschritte ab. Auch der Verlauf der Peer Group Player spielt eine große Rolle - je besser es Flinders, Northern Graphite und Focus Graphite geht und je schneller sie voran schreiten und an Wert zulegen, desto mehr werden auch die Explorer in Zukunft profitieren. Gegenwärtig funktioniert das alles jedoch umgekehrt: Wenn man weiterhin ein Desinteresse, fallendes Volumen/Kurs bei den größeren Graphitwerten beobachten kann, werden sich die Explorer natürlich extrem schwer tun.. Geduld ist gefragt, wir sind Mitten in der 2. Juniorkrise nach 07/08..
