Gratomic: Graphite for Growing Global Electric Vehicle Market
Working to become a key player in the lithium-ion EV battery supply chain
Gratomic is a dynamic exploration and mining company focused on low-cost mine to market carbon-neutral, eco-friendly, naturally high-grade vein graphite. Further, the soon to be the largest vein graphite producer on the planet, has set its sights on becoming a key player the EV and Energy Storage supply chains.
Their flagship project in Namibia will generate exceptionally high-quality graphite with very little processing – saving time and money. Moreover, Gratomic has been successful in upscaling its naturally pure vein graphite to a battery grade level of 99% + Cg. This is attributed to the addition of air classification. Gratomic is also on schedule for the commissioning of its onsite Aukam Vein Graphite Processing Plant. From there they’ll move into full operational capabilities with plans in place to transition its Namibian project to an open pit operation in Q4 of 2021. Additionally, the company holds a debt-free status, with near-term revenue potential.
The Aukam Graphite Project
The Aukam Graphite Project is located in southern Namibia close to the port city of Luderitz. The property hosts five underground adits which were mined periodically between 1940 and 1974. Five surface stockpiles from the historical mining occurred on the property and 73 composite samples were taken from the lower three stockpiles, assayed and averaged 42% Carbon as graphite (Cg).
The Aukam property covers a historical vein graphite mine that consists of five adits and an open pit. Associated with the old workings are five surface stockpiles that still contain significant graphitic material. Data obtained over the past 8 years of the project has led to a better understanding of the quality and distribution of the graphite mineralization at Aukam. In particular, exploration has demonstrated significant potential for expansion of the mineralization outside the old workings.
