About Great Lakes Graphite: Great Lakes Graphite is an industrial minerals company with the mandate to bring graphite projects to production through the acquisition and development of high quality graphite properties. Graphite has moved to the forefront of the Industrial Mineral World as a Critical Mineral required for industrial use and as a major component in the development of new technologies. With the advancement of battery storage, mobile battery systems and alternative energy infrastructure, it is estimated that 20 new graphite mines will be required to keep up with worldwide demand by the year 2020.
As there are currently no graphite mines producing in North America, Great Lakes Graphite has the ability to become one of the first producers to supply a growing regional customer base that requires high-quality, purified graphite, where pricing and demand continue to rise.
The Company, through strategic acquisitions and capable management intends to become a leader in the industrial minerals marketplace. The Company’s graphite properties are located in the Lochaber Township of southwestern Québec. The Company has also entered into option and joint-venture agreements with Eloro Resources Inc. (TSXV: ELO) on the Summit-Gaber Cobalt property located in the La Grande Greenstone Belt in the James Bay region of Québec.
