PEA Outcomes: Uncovering the Potential of the Uatnan Mining Venture

NMG and its consultants revisited all elements of Mason Graphite’s unique mining challenge to align the event of the Lac Guéret graphite deposit with as we speak’s market alternative and potential prospects’ necessities. The newest technical report from Mason Graphite (SEDAR, Feasibility examine replace of the Lac Guéret Graphite Venture issued on December 11, 2018) deliberate for a manufacturing of 51,900 tonnes of graphite focus each year, with the concentrator and tailings storage facility positioned offsite within the city of Baie-Comeau, roughly 285 km to the south by highway from the mining operations.

The PEA optimizes the Mineral Assets and goals to develop the unique mining challenge tenfold by focusing on the manufacturing of roughly 500,000 tonnes of graphite focus each year, solely destined for the anode materials manufacturing market. The concentrator has been relocated to be close to the deposit with electrical wants that may very well be sourced from the Manic-5 hydroelectric energy station, positioned 70 km away.

Consistent with NMG’s accountable mining strategy, plans embody progressive web site closure with backfilling of the pit with waste rock as a lot as attainable. Further characterization of waste rock and tailings will likely be included within the subsequent engineering section to pick out correct tailings and waste rock administration applied sciences. Current baseline research will likely be up to date based mostly on the examine space to establish any environmental points, consider potential impacts and develop alternate options for the Uatnan Mining Venture.

Industrial parameters had been set utilizing present projections of pricing ready by a third-party knowledgeable for flake focus. Design of the Uatnan Mining Venture has been tailor-made to the wants of the battery and EV market, orienting manufacturing volumes for beneficiation with the intention to produce energetic anode materials. Pure flake graphite is anticipated to enter a structural deficit as of 2023 as a result of continued development of lithium-ion battery manufacturing, outpacing provide capability from graphite producers (Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, December 2022). Therefore, market views and NMG’s energetic industrial discussions point out favorable situations for commercializing the Uatnan Mining Venture manufacturing.

The Uatnan Mining Venture is accessible by highway 389 after which by following Class 1 forestry roads.

Exploration work on the Uatnan property focused graphite mineralization and consists to this point of airborne geophysics, prospecting, floor geophysics, trenching/channel sampling and core drilling. Bulk floor samples and core samples had been additionally collected for metallurgical and geomechanical assessments. Exploration work uncovered important crystalline flake graphite mineralization, finally resulting in the identification of Mineral Assets and Mineral Reserves (see Mason Graphite’s press launch dated November 9, 2015). Resulting from important adjustments to the challenge scope, as talked about above, it was determined that the Uatnan Mining Venture would revert to a Preliminary Financial Evaluation degree.

On Might 15, 2022, NMG concluded an investment to explore the potential development of the Lac Guéret graphite property (now the Uatnan Property). This settlement aligns with NMG’s development technique with a view to establishing a big, scalable, and totally vertically built-in pure graphite manufacturing, from ore to battery supplies, on the western markets’ doorstep.

Processing & Restoration

The method stream sheet was developed utilizing the identical metallurgical foundation used for Mason Graphite’s up to date Feasibility Examine issued on December 11, 2018. The principle distinction between the 2 flowsheets, aside from the elevated plant capability, is the supposed end-use of the fabric. On condition that 100% of the graphite focus produced from the Uatnan Mining Venture is destined for the battery market, preserving flake sizes is now not thought of within the processing route. Given this consideration, the flowsheet was simplified by lowering the variety of each sharpening and cleaner flotation levels from 4 to 2. This variation minimizes the variety of grinding mills and flotation cells required, lowering each the capital and working prices for the Uatnan Mining Venture.

The flowsheet consists of a mineral sizer to scale back the dimensions of the run of mine (“ROM”) mineral earlier than it’s fed to a SAG mill for main grinding. The bottom mineral then undergoes rougher flotation, after which the reground and scavenged focus is mixed with the rougher focus for additional processing. The focus then undergoes two further levels of regrinding, first in a ball mill forward of the primary cleansing step, then a second regrind in a tower mill forward of secondary cleansing. The ensuing focus undergoes a closing deliming stage to take away low-grade minus 20-micron particles to maximise the ultimate focus grade. The concentrator tailings are filtered and delivered to the tailings storage facility. The focus is filtered and dried earlier than being trucked 285 km to Baie-Comeau for transport to market.
