Focus Graphite and Graphene Company Grafoid Inc. Announce 10 year Strategic Offtake Agreement

Focus Graphite (TSXV:FMS, OTCQX:FCSMF) has announced two offtake agreements with private graphene company Grafoid. Focus’ stock price rallied 17.5 percent to $0.235 per share on Monday as the market reacted to the news.

The first offtake entails Grafoid’s rights to receive at its discretion a maximum of 1,000 tonnes of high purity large-flake graphite concentrate (98.3 percent total carbon) each year for 10 years. The graphite would be acquired from Focus’ Lac Knife mine in Quebec. For the second offtake contract, Grafoid is entitled to up to 25,000 tonnes of graphite concentrate (98.3 percent total carbon) each year for 10 years from the same Quebec mine.

Focus Graphite projects that the Lac Knife large-flake graphite concentrate production will be 14,606 tonnes per year. Grafoid’s first offtake will be up to 6.8% of this large-flake production and 56.4% of Lac Knife’s other production flake types which totals 44,300 tonnes per year.

Grafoid has stated that the high purity graphite will be used for next generation graphene technologies such as:

Large- Scale Graphene Production vs. Useful Production

A research team at Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) claim to have created continuous sheets of graphene (1 layer thick) using the CVD process. They also claim to have been able to produce graphene fibers. You can read the research article here.

Though this type of production of graphene is actually not as rare as one might think. The real breakthroughs that graphene investors need to pay attention to is when useful graphene is created in a cost effective manner.
