"..Nur wenige Graphitunternehmen können bereits mittelfristig von den hohen Graphitpreisen profitieren, da die Anzahl der entwickelten Projekte rar ist. Hier bieten sich aktuell drei Unternehmen aus Kanada an, die bereits fortgeschritten sind und bis Anfang 2014 die Graphitproduktion aufnehmen wollen. Das erste Unternehmen ist Northern Graphite (A1H95Z), dessen kanadisches Projekt eine lukrative Lokalisierung inmitten von vielen, potentiellen Endproduktabnehmern vorweisen kann. Das zweite Unternehmen hat seinen Namen zuletzt passend zu Focus Graphite (WKN A1JYY6) gewechselt und besitzt in Quebec das hochgradigste Graphitvorkommen der Welt. Das dritte Unternehmen ist in Schweden aktiv. Flinders Resources (WKN A1JUP8) hat letztes Jahr eine historische Graphitmine erworben, die noch lange nicht ausgebeutet ist.."

Focus Metals Changes Its Name to Focus Graphite
OTTAWA- May 24, 2012 - Focus Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMS)(OTCQX:FCSMF)(FRANKFURT:FKC) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that following the approval of a special resolution by the Corporation’s shareholders at the annual and special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held on May 3rd, 2012 in Ottawa, Ontario, the Corporation has changed its name and will now trade on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) under the name “Focus Graphite Inc.” as of May 25, 2012. The Corporation will continue trading on the Exchange under the stock symbol “FMS”.

Focus Graphite President and CEO Gary Economo said the change in corporate identity represents a truer description of the company’s core business activities.

Focus Graphite represents a turning point for us and for our shareholders as we prepare to transition out of pre-development at Lac Knife and into development during the course of the coming year to 18 months” Mr. Economo said.

Our aim is to develop and then manufacture the best technology graphite in the world,” he said. “Additional shareholder value will come from our investment in commercialized graphene through our joint venture partner, Grafoid Inc.”

On May 7, 2012, Focus Metals Inc. and Hydro-Québec’s world-leading research institute, IREQ, announced the signing of a licensing agreement enabling the development of a graphite purification facility and a graphite anode production facility for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.

Mr. Economo said the agreement provided a critical pillar in building Focus Graphite’s mine-to-end-user supply chain structure.

Graphite & Graphene 101: Great Expectations for the World's 'Wonder Materials'

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Increasing media attention on graphite and graphene and their potential applications in a variety of fields ranging from water purification to rust prevention to nuclear power are being highlighted by various universities and research centers across the globe. These emerging applications are proving that scientists and researchers indeed have great expectations for graphite and graphene as a versatile material that will make our world cleaner, greener and more sustainable. Realizing that some GraphiteBlog readers may be new to the graphite markets we thought it’d be timely to do a graphene 101 piece to set the foundation for more advanced pieces on the topic..

Graphite Demand for Batteries to Increase as Ultra-Fast Electric Vehicle Charging System under Development

Monday, June 11, 2012

The market for full electric vehicles (EV’s), as opposed to hybrid ones, has been slower than expected. Analysts and manufacturers had predicted higher demand in view of the growing prices for petroleum based fuels. Cars like the Nissan Leaf or even semi-hybrid vehicles such as the Chevrolet Volt have shown disappointing sales results – so much so that GM, for instance, suspended sales of the Volt last March for a several weeks, laying-off over 1,000 employees.  The main reason for the sluggish result, however, has been identified. Recharging technology has failed to keep up with battery technology. Most EV’s require at least eight hours of charging time from a standard domestic socket in North America. Even the available special chargers available as optional equipment on premium EV’s such as the Tesla Roadster still need charging times measures in hours rather than minutes, though there are fast charge ‘columns’ that are capable of limiting the charge time to 30 minutes, though these are not available in a standard garage in the suburbs – let alone a downtown condominium..

"..TCMR: Are there any other graphite plays worthy of a mention?

BK: Focus Graphite Inc. (FMS:TSX.V) and Energizer Resources Inc. (EGZ:TSX.V; ENZR:OTCBB) both make an exceptional case for the future.

TCMR: Focus is working on the Lac Knife deposit in Québec, one of the world's highest-grade graphite deposits. What are its plans to get to production?

BK: I've visited Lac Knife, and have samples of its graphite here on my desk. Frankly, the Lac Knife specimens are some of the best graphite I have ever seen.

The deposit is in the far north, on the border of Québec and Labrador, right next to a Hydro-Québec power line easement with roads. It is 20 to 30 miles from the ArcelorMittal S.A. (MT:NYSE) iron ore mine at Fermont. You could not ask for better infrastructure, labor and electric power or a more mining-friendly jurisdiction.."

The hungry dragon: China is cornering the market on metals, land, oil and other commodities... and could hold us ransom for it

June 16, 2012 (Source: New York Post) -- 

Asked to cite a running theme in her work, economist Dambisa Moyo says, “unintended consequences.”

In her first book, “Dead Aid,” the Zambia-reared, Oxford-trained Moyo argued that handouts to (as opposed to business deals with) Africa were worse than useless. Now she says the West has been missing the point again: In the past few years, while we have been distracted by banking crises, global warming and the future of energy, we’ve been overlooking China’s colossal commodities grab. It’s out of humble stuff like copper and aluminum that China is building a highway to global leadership, Moyo argues in her new book “Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What It Means for the World..

Gänzende Aussichten:


"Biggest Producer


Global consumption may jump to 300,000 metric tons a year by 2020 from about 150,000 tons now, Dahlman Rose said June 7. Demand for lithium batteries has been growing at about 25 percent a year, outpacing the 4 percent to 5 percent overall gain in lithium, the firm said.


Anywhere between a doubling and a tripling of demand in the next 10 years is absolutely our view,” Peter Oliver, CEO of Talison, the biggest producer, said in an interview. “Maybe a doubling is with minimal impact from electric vehicles, and if electric vehicles take off in a big way in the next 10 years it could be as much as tripling.”


Neil Gregson, manager of about $6.9 billion in natural resource assets at JPMorgan Asset Management, said in an interview in London he’s studying investing in the industry. “You can’t see any reason why that won’t be a high growth market for many, many years. It’s a very interesting area.”

Der kommende Boom bei Elektrobatterien und Hightech-Produkten wirkt sich immer stärker auf die Nachfrage nach Graphit aus - die Preise dürften langfristig weiter steigen.

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 Rohstoffmärkten 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 Elektrobatterien eingesetzt und sind bei der Herstellung von Hightech-Produkten wie Carbon sehr gefragt.

Der lukrative Graphitsektor und die Auswirkungen des kommenden Booms bei den Elektrobatterien waren deswegen zuletzt auch ein Thema in der ‚Financial Times Deutschland‘ (siehe den Artikel Steigende Preise Aus Grafitgier in der FTD)..

Elektromobilität: Der Boom der Batteriefabriken

von Anja Steinbusch Quelle: Tagesspiegel

Ohne Lithium-Ionen-Akkus gehen in Elektrofahrzeugen noch nicht einmal die Lichter an. Mehr noch als die Batterien sind Fertigungsstätten ein Geschäft.

Das von Samsung und Bosch gegründete Unternehmen SB-LiMotive soll vor allem Zellen und Batterien für die demnächst auf den Markt kommenden E-Cars von BMW liefern Quelle: dpa

Mit der zunehmenden Zahl an Elektroautos steigt die Nachfrage nach leistungsstarken Lithium-Ionen-Batterien. Eine Roland-Berger-Studie geht von einem Wachstum des weltweiten Marktvolumens bis 2015 von derzeit rund 1,5 Milliarden Dollar auf 9,8 Milliarden Dollar aus. Die Marktforscher glauben, dass in drei Jahren fünf große Batteriehersteller gut achtzig Prozent des Marktes beherrschen werden: AESC, LG Chem, Panasonic/Sanyo, A123 und SB-LiMotive..
