: Wie soll´s weitergehen? Interview mit Gary Economo
RW: What is your path to production?
GE: Right now, the most important thing for us is to finish off all our permitting and get our offtake agreements signed and publicized. That will drive financing for this project. We expect to be able to do that within the next 24 months. . . RW: Where do you see your company in two years?
GE: We’ll have spun out or divested anything that is not graphite related. Hopefully, if the permitting gods in Quebec work to the schedules that we believe they can, we’ll be in production at Lac Knife, and we’ll have our facility set up in Quebec to produce high-purity graphite.
Everton meldete gestern: "..that it has been named as a defendant, along with a current officer, a former officer and a third party, in a motion to institute proceedings, filed in Montreal, Quebec. The motion relates to a transaction in which Everton sold certain mining claims in the Labrador Trough in 2009 and 2010. While the plaintiff is unable to quantify the value of its loss at this time, it is seeking an order for $120,000 and certain declarations in this motion. Everton has retained the law firm of Heenan Blaikie LLP and intends to take all appropriate action in relation to the motion."
" BK: I've been following Focus Graphite Inc. (FMS:TSX.V) for almost two years. I've always liked Focus because its deposit at Lac-Knife, Quebec, is among the highest-grade deposits in the world.
TCMR: Quebec has a history of graphite mining.
BK: It does. Focus has a great deposit in Quebec. But Focus is more than a mine with great ore. Focus management has a technology-based plan for what it wants to do with the graphite. I wish management would be more open about the actual details of the technology, but at this stage, it's all at a close-hold, highly proprietary level. Still, every company makes its own decisions on what it wants to keep close to the chest. I'm bullish on Focus and where it's going with its technology uses for graphite."
Das zieht den kompletten Graphitsektor verständlich nach oben. Northern Graphite hat sich für benötigte das Minenequipment erfolgreich eine Finanzierung von Caterpillar gesichert, dem weltgrößten Hersteller für Baumaschinen und einer wahrlich renommierten und einflussreichen Adresse. Die Finanzierung mit Caterpillar stellt nicht nur einen großen Meilenstein für Northern Graphite im Hinblick auf die Konstruktionsentscheidung dar, sie ist auch ein starkes Vertrauenszeichen für den Graphitsektor. Niemals würde eine Caterpillar diese Finanzierung zusichern, wenn sie nicht von einer profitablen, nachhaltigen Graphit-Minenoperation überzeugt wären.
