Nouveau Monde Begins Graphite Production at Demonstration Plant

Nouveau Monde Graphite (TSXV:NOU) announced the successful mechanical commissioning of the wet circuit of its 3.5-ton-per-hour demonstration plant in Quebec.

As quoted in the press release:

Mechanical commissioning of the flotation circuit up to the filter press was completed during the week of September 3rd. Commissioning of the dry side of the demonstration plant including dryer, classification screen, and bagging system is scheduled for later in September 2018.

Grab samples of the +80 mesh cleaning circuit 3rd cleaner concentrate were submitted for independent chemical analysis by SGS Minerals in Lakefield.  The results are presented in Table 1 and reveal that the total carbon grades of the +50, +80, and +140 mesh size fractions are above the minimum concentrate grade target of 95% C(t). Given that these high concentrate grades were already obtained during mechanical commissioning is very encouraging and confirm the effortlessness that the medium, large and jumbo flakes of the Matawinie graphite ore can be upgraded to at least 96% C(t).

With mechanical commissioning of the wet circuit completed, the attention will focus on optimizing the metallurgical performance of the circuit in the coming weeks. During the next two years of operation, several alternative processing technologies will be evaluated to determine if the results obtained in the laboratory scale metallurgical program that was completed to support the feasibility study can be further improved.
