Principal Geologist and consultant, Dr Andrew Scogings will present on “Graphite mines and projects; Analyses and feasibility observations” at the 6th Graphite and Graphene Conference between 16-17 March 2017, Steinberger Hotel in Berlin, Germany.
Despite the challenges faced by the industrial minerals markets, the graphite market has proved that it’s not easily broken. With li-ion battery applications on the rise and investment and explorations efforts taking the market by storm, the conference this year will seek to deliver an insight into the developing technical advancements throughout the industry and will look to deliver future pricing, market trends and applications.
Dr Scogings will present the following on Thursday 16 March at 2.30pm.
-What is important for investors to know about graphite deposits and grades to make informed investments?
-What is the long term projected capacity of emerging projects? When will they be ready for market penetration?
-Which markets are these new mines intended to supply?
-How is the grade and quality of the product ensured?
-Which countries are best placed to challenge China and take its share?
