Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV:NGC,OTCQX:NGPHF) announced the National Research Council of Canada has completed spherical graphite testing at its Bissett Creek deposit.
As quoted in the press release:
Spherical graphite is an upgraded product, made from the concentrates produced by the mine, and used to make the anodes for lithium ion batteries. NRC reported that the electrochemical performance of the uncoated samples provided by Northern performed very well compared to commercial coated synthetic samples, especially considering their early stage of development. The most promising samples for use in lithium-ion battery applications will undergo further testing to optimize and refine their performance.
