Graphite One Welcomes Scott Packman to its Board of Directors

Electric vehicles have become some of the hottest investments around.

With demand only accelerating, it’s dramatically increased the need for high-quality metals, like graphite. After all, graphite is an essential material used for producing the anode of lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles and energy storage.

And it’s in BIG demand.

So much so that according to the World Bank, graphite output needs to increase by about 500% by 2050. And that’s to meet the demand of the battery metals market alone. (6)

That’s 2050, though. By 2030, according to CNBC, the world could see roughly 125 million EVs on the road. (4) We surely may need an ungodly amount of graphite to make this reality.


“This is because graphite serves as the anode in the lithium-ion batteries that power these EVs, not to mention the growing number of portable tools and electronics that use the same type of battery.” (8)

Electrifying the story, the new $1 trillion infrastructure bill could help build more than 500,000 charging stations and help make 50% of vehicles electric by 2030. (9)

Again though, this can’t be stressed enough. The industry needs more graphite for this to happen. Immediately.

Graphite supply could be the lifeblood of our future. Why else would the USGS include graphite on its list of 35 minerals and metals considered critical to the United States? (10)

Why would the White House have signed an executive order in early 2021 aimed to strengthen critical U.S. supply of graphite for the renewable and electric vehicle battery sectors? (11)

Beyond this, the U.S. has continued scrambling just to get a hold of the nation’s graphite supply. Lost in the shuffle of all this infrastructure news is that graphite was very recently added to the new U.S. National Stockpile (NDS) Acquisitions List. (12)

"The inclusion of graphite on the National Defense Stockpile list is another sign of graphite’s growing importance," said Anthony Huston, CEO of Graphite One. “Coupled with the importance of graphite to three of the four key supply chains recognized by the June 2021 White House report, it is clear the U.S. Government sees graphite as essential to both national security and the technology economy.” (12)

Just Who is Graphite One Inc. ?


Graphite One is a graphite company in the midst of developing its Graphite One Project. This project could help the company evolve into a major American producer of high-grade Coated Spherical Graphite (CSG) integrated with a domestic graphite resource.

The Graphite One Project is proposed as a vertically integrated enterprise to mine, process, and manufacture high-grade CSG. Primarily, it would be used for the lithium‐ion electric vehicle battery market.

As outlined in Graphite One’s Preliminary Economic Assessment, potential graphite mineralization mined from its Graphite Creek Property is expected to be processed into concentrate at a graphite processing plant.

The proposed processing plant would be located on the Graphite Creek Property situated on the Seward Peninsula about 60 kilometers north of Nome, Alaska.

Graphite One Inc. Just Completed its 2021 Field Program


Graphite One recently completed the 2021 field program at its 100% owned Graphite Creek project in Alaska.

The Field Program included infill and step-out core drilling in the resource area. On top of this, it saw additional core and sonic drilling for geotechnical data collection in the proposed mill site and dry tailings/waste rock storage areas. Other work included access route engineering, surface water and groundwater hydrology studies, wetlands mapping, and aquatic life surveys. (7)

2,052 meters were drilled during the 2021 program, including 1,695 meters of HQ core drilling and 357 meters of sonic drilling. Results from 8-hole core holes completed in the resource area are expected to be released in Q1 2022 when data analysis is completed. (7)

“With the recent CDN $21 million in funding, our efforts have progressed towards completion of the PFS for the largest known and highest-grade graphite deposit in the United States,”

Anthony Huston, CEO of Graphite One.

“The 2021 Field Program also initiated the drilling and additional data collection needed to begin work on the FS after the PFS is completed. We are very pleased with the successful execution of the 2021 Field Program, as historical drilling coupled with the new data clearly demonstrates the predictability and consistency of high-grade, near surface graphite. With the concepts and conclusions outlined in the PEA suggesting a 40-year mine life, the Graphite Creek deposit continues to show potential to be an essential long-life component of the graphite supply chain, one of four critical minerals that are on the US National Defense stockpile list.”

To sum it up...

Electric vehicles have become one of the hottest investments around and graphite is essential for the industry’s growth. After all, graphite is an essential material used for producing the anode of lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles and energy storage. (8)

That’s part of the reason why the World Bank claims we need graphite output to increase by roughly 500% by 2050 just to meet the demand of the battery metals market. (6)

In a nutshell, it is in BIG demand and shows no signs of slowing.

Could it be why the Graphite One stock rallied 1,311% between Mar 11, 2020 and Feb 09, 2021? (15)

This could be just the beginning of this company’s story on its mission to transform a graphite market expected to balloon to $29.5 billion by 2022. (2)
