Lithium Energy says Burke graphite is critical global source of battery anode material

--News Direct--

Lithium Energy Ltd (ASX:LEL) chairman William Johnson speaks with Proactive soon after receiving strong spheronisation and purification test-work results of greater than 99.97% total graphitic carbon (TGC) using concentrate from Burke Graphite Project in northwest Queensland. These purification results described as "exceptional" were achieved with potentially low-cost, environmentally safer, non-hydrofluoric acid processes. The completed battery anode material (BAM) test-work has defined the process flowsheet requirements to produce high purity 99.97% TGC spheronised graphite material, which will be suitable as feedstock for the battery anode making (BAM) process.

"The exceptional results of the BAM test work conducted on the 95% TGC Burke Graphite concentrate have surpassed expectations," Johnson said. "The development of a flowsheet that supports a two-product strategy, along with the exceptional purity of the final spherical purified graphite of 99.99% TGC, underpins the quality of the Burke Graphite and supports the vertically integrated BAM strategy Lithium Energy is implementing."
