Featured Graphite Company

DNI Metals Inc. logoDNI Metals Inc.

Canadian-based DNI Metals is focused on developing a vertically integrated graphite company, using a three-pronged approach:

  • Mining and importing high-quality flake graphite from Madagascar
  • Wholesale business shipping graphite from Brazil to North America
  • Cash flow positive, commercial mining-related laboratory
Their vision is to become the lowest cost, highest margin, highest quality graphite producer to take advantage of the Clean Energy revolution.

DNI Metals Inc. - Vohitsara Graphite Property

Vohitsara Graphite Property in Madagascar

Their flagship project. Initial exploration results have indicated the presence of a reasonable quantity, quality, and tenor of flake graphite mineralization consistent with the high-quality of flake graphite found in central-eastern Madagascar.

The property has a commercial, exploitation mining permit from the BCMM (Bureau du Cadastre Minier de Madagascar), and DNI Madagascar Sarl - a wholly owned subsidiary - has been formed in order to carry out business in that country.

In March 2017, DNI Metals signed a DA (Definitive Agreement), with Australian-based Cougar Metals NL (ASX:CGM) to develop the Vohitsara Graphite Project.

Cougar has begun a 3,000 meter drilling program, and a 1,000 meter trenching program, to be followed by a NI 43-101 resource study, and a NI 43-101 PEA (Preliminary Economic Assessment). Pursuant to the DA, this work should be completed by late 2017. Upon completion of the PEA, a 50/50 Joint Venture will be immediately formed between DNI & Cougar.

Cougar's metallurgical tests have produced very high grade concentrates, with over 98% Total Graphitic Carbon, from both high and low grade raw composites, with 28% > 500 µm (Super Jumbo flake) and 65% > 180 µm (Large flake).

DNI Metals plans to start output at 10,000 to 12,000 metric tons per year, which will enable the company to be extremely competitive in the current graphite market owing to its lower capital expenditure and operating expense costs, as the ore can go straight into the flotation process following excavation - this is The Saprolite Advantage.

Samples of strong graphitic carbon head-grade results (3% to 13.14% Cgr) from 4 trenches covering a strike length of 700 meters, averaging 300 to 400 meters in width, at Vohitsara, yielded the following preliminary results:

Flake Distribution, Description, and Size

  • 25.3% Jumbo +30 mesh / +595 microns
  • 29.5% Jumbo +50 mesh / +297 microns
  • 12.6% Large +70 mesh / +210 microns
  •  9.9% Medium +100 mesh / +149 microns
  •  5.8% Small +140 mesh / +105 microns
  • 16.9% Small -140 mesh / -105 microns

DNI Metals Inc. - Wholesale Flake Graphite

Wholesale Graphite Business

DNI Metals Inc. has a wholesale graphite business shipping material from a high-quality, high-purity producer in Brazil to North America. They have a current agreement to provide Great Lakes Graphite 34,000 metric tons of -100 mesh 95% Carbon over a five year period, primarily for their micronized graphite products.

Their wholesale site is located at: BuyFlakeGraphite.com

DNI Metals Inc. - Commercial Mining-Related Laboratory

Commercial Laboratory & Mining-Related Services

There is also a pending purchase of a 37,000 sq. ft. technical lab and testing facility, located in the Greater Toronto Area, that is fully permitted - up to and including Uranium/Radioactive Materials - and is currently being used by mining and clean technology companies for assay work, pilot plant modeling, technical studies, and environmental work. 62 Canadian & US patents have been developed at this facility to date.

Ore from the Vohitsara Property in Madagascar could be processed at this laboratory, saving the company and its shareholders a great deal of money. Upgrading the graphite in-house will result in higher profit margins for DNI in both the expandable and spherical graphite markets.

Every producing graphite mine must certify its products for carbon content, ash content, moisture content, particle size, and impurities. By having their own laboratory, experts, and a training facility, DNI will be able to provide its customers with a secure, reliable, and consistent supply of graphite.

In addition, 20% of the building is rented out at competitive rates, already generating income, and this acquisition will add about CAD $ 3.5 million of hard assets to DNI's balance sheet.

DNI Metals Inc. - SBH Buckton Zone Property
