In a recent article for Industrial Minerals, Simon Moores explains that although private graphite producers have largely not enjoyed the sector's recent influx of junior companies, those juniors are improving the industry by encouraging competition and continual improvement while also pushing the search for new markets and demand.
Exploration for graphite is heating up in Australia. While Australian juniors are still in the initial stages, way behind their Canadian counterparts, the move toward exploration shows that there are concerns about future supply and demand, and that the quest for non-Chinese sources of this critical mineral is expanding.
As demand for graphite surges, Quebec’s potential is taking center stage, with many miners announcing exploration projects in the province. With a sound economy and a wealth of natural resources, Quebec’s graphite-mining region has seen several projects commence in the past few years.
The recent surge of juniors exploring graphite to satisfy future demand are creating an investment boom in the graphite space. However, just as with any other commodity, investors should pursue projects that are well funded and have strong management.
