SRG Graphite Resources Inc. (TSX-V: SRG) is a Canadian-based
mining company focused on advancing its 100%-owned Lola Graphite
Deposit in Guinea toward a Pre Feasibility Study by the end of this 2017,
and Feasibility/production decision in mid-2018. If everything goes
to plan the marketplace should be able to recognize a substantially
higher value for the asset, one of the best graphite assets in
the world due to its size (8.7 km long with average depth of
370m at surface), the quality of the mineral (89% of graphite flakes
are super-jumbo, jumbo, and large, with weathering of the top ~20 m
allowing for freeing of flakes, grades up to 20% carbon with no
impurities), the stability and friendliness of the jurisdiction,
geographically it is on the west side of Africa with direct access
to North America and Europe, and with a very strong management team
(including the founder of SEMAFO, click here to see CVs) at
the helm able to fast-track the project thru to production decision.
A decision that will see SRG selling
some of the highest quality graphite available, with an optimal
distribution of flakes, in an expanding market.
SRG Opens TSX-V Market
Oct 2/17. Since listing in 2017, SRG has created an increase >$60M
in shareholder value.
SRG.V currently has a market cap of ~C$102.6 million (~58 million
shares outstanding trading at ~$1.77/share, with no warrant pressure
over its head (~65M fully diluted)), miniscule compared to other
companies with meaningful graphite deposits in the world (see
comparison further below) which SRG has advantages over in terms of
quality. The share price is apt to appreciate as
the Company accomplishes near-term milestones. SRG Graphite Inc.,
was recently formed (in January 2017) as a standalone Company to
receive its flagship asset (the Lola Graphite Property) from Sama
Resources (which is busy advancing its own flagship asset in another
African country). Sama Resources retains ~43% of the outstanding shares of
SRG after the spin-out and recent capitalization, Coris Capital out
of Africa owns
~13%, and insiders own ~4% = ~60% in total in very strong hands. It
has been a low profile transaction up to now, however that won't
last -- going into October-2017 SRG has ~C$3.2 million in the bank,
sufficient to complete all objectives through to

Figure 2. (below) Comparison of SRG
Graphite Inc. to other deposits
SRG is at a key stage of value
creation and on sale; SRG compared to other projects is still very cheap at its current
market cap; the comparable deposits
portrayed in the image above adjacent
the Lola Graphite deposit are in Africa (and of lesser quality
graphite), Mason is in Quebec. Each has their own specs and have
varying levels of development/improvements, so always never a
straight comparison, however it is clear SRG is poised for upside
revaluation -- the area (the red ellipse area
seen in the image) SRG is targeting for the resource that it
will publish later this year with its scoping study is expected to
cover ~16% of the surface area of the deposit and involves only the
top oxide portion (weathered zone). Compared SRG to
Syrah Resources, which has a >US$1 Billion market cap., Syrah only has the
one deposit in Mozambique, both comparables are on the same scale in
the image above --
you can see the two proposed pits for Syrah are 3.2 km apart and
about the same size as the red ellipse area of SRG, clearly SRG is set for significant upside revaluation if all goes
Demand for SRG's high-purity large
flake graphite is
high: On November 7, 2017 Great Lakes Graphite and SRG
Graphite Execute Memorandum of Understanding for SRG to Supply
Graphite Concentrate. The MoU specifies that the Companies will seek
to negotiate an agreement for the annual supply of between 5,000 and
20,000 tons of natural flake graphite concentrate (click

risk, no metallurgical risk, no mining risk, no environmental risk:
Interesting for shareholders is that 1) there is no geological risk;
the discovery is made. 2) There is no metallurgical risk; the met
tests are done and highly favorable. 3) Investors can also can also
tick off the mining risk, as it is at surface (not an underground
mine). 4) There is no environmental risk; there are no people to
move from the deposit and the local village is supportive, and
whatever waste SRG is going to put back into the ground after
processing is harmless as there is no deleterious chemical elements
used in floatation. 5) Execution risk is addressed as SRG has
highly experienced mining professionals (e.g. Marc-Antoine Audet, BSc, MSc and
Ph.D (Geology), P.Geo, and Benoit La Salle, FCPA, FCA, MBA) that
have done this for the past 30 years with no flaws or failures to
Essentially success for SRG from here boils down to execution on the
pre-feasibility and feasibility.

of a world-class graphite deposit
The Lola Graphite occurrence has a prospective
surface outline of 3.22 km2 of continuous graphitic gneiss,
one of the largest surface
outlines in the world.
The Lola Graphite deposit is 8.7 km long with
an avg. width of 370 meters. This Mining Journal projects* (*non
43-101) there is upwards of 150 years of production in the top 20
meters of weathered material alone (calculated using 3.2 sq. km,
density of 1.6, 60% of the surface area going through a plant at
~400,000 t/year, yielding 24,000t of concentrate per year), and then
there is the rock under that 20 m which is rich too.
NOTE: The November 2, 2017 news release "More
Strong Results at SRG’s Lola Graphite Project" revealed
thicknesses of more than 30 meters in the surface weathered profile
in 56% of the boreholes, and
averaging over 20 m in the others.
Obviously it makes no sense to drill the entire
deposit now. The first-pass/maiden resource, for the scoping study that SRG
is looking to deliver by the end of 2017, will come from its focused
drilling of the indicated red ellipse area covering 16% of the
deposit, and this Mining Journal believes* this first-pass will give SRG 15 - 20 years (at a
removal rate of ~25,000t of concentrate/yr.) of first production.
advantage of top ~20 m: The first 20
meters or so of the deposit are well weathered (lateralized),
freeing graphite flakes from the silicate gangue and allowing for an
easy grinding with optimal recovery of all large and jumbo flakes.
The weathering action from the sun and rain has occurred over
millions of years, rotting the rock and causing the mobile elements
to escape the rock, leaving behind immobile elements in the soil
without organic material. Weathering makes the material amenable to
easy low-cost removal as it is very easy to dig (e.g. with a
backhoe), explosives are not needed. The weathered profile of the
deposit is anywhere from 20 m to 30 m and in some places down to 50
m. The weathered material makes for easier processing too, it
requires only gentle crushing to recover all the flakes. The
majority of other deposits, around the world, and especially those in
North America, are in hard rock structures, making them much harder
to mine and much more difficult from a metallurgical standpoint. The
Lola Graphite Deposit, within the top 20 m - 30 m, is like a sandbox
with the graphite flakes freed from weathering, making them easy to
The graphite mineralization extends deep under the
top oxide layer within the nonweathered sheared gneiss.
89% of graphite flakes are super-jumbo,
jumbo, and large (>0.18 mm):
The flake distribution found in
graphite at the Lola Graphite Deposit is a unique occurrence, very
few deposits in the world can compare. Being dominant large -
super-jumbo flakes will allow SRG to market its deposit to all
sectors of the economy and cater to the whole range of industries. Most graphite deposits in the world
do not have as good a flake distribution
as SRG and are
pigeon-holed into intensive processing options characterized by low
yields, high costs, and low margin, such selling graphite for Li-ion
batteries. A large portion of the
graphite market involves other aspects
of the economy that demand larger
flakes, such as
composite parts (used in aerospace) and
other specialty uses. A lot of buyers are looking for
large flakes and are prepared to pay a premium because they realize
these large flakes have a significant advantage.

image of comparisons (above) was actually published by Triton located in Mozambique, they
claim flake distribution similar to SRG; ~89% large - super-jumbo
flake size -- as you can see there are not many in that pedigree.
Not shown in the above table is the purity, SRG is absent
impurities, some deposits have issues in removing impurities.
Excellent grades and thicknesses: SRG
has published several press releases regarding drilling that reveal
quality thicknesses and grades drilling, e.g. see latest release
November 2, 2017 "More
Strong Results at SRG’s Lola Graphite Project" and September 13, 2017 "SRG
Drills 8.9% Cg Over 55 Meters, Including 10.06% Cg Over 48 Meters at
Lola – Numerous Drill Intersects Grading Above 10% Graphitic Carbon",
which typifies the deposit. The fact that the relative cost of
mining and processing are expected to be very low, SRG can mine down
to 2% without problems. Obviously SRG will mine the sections with
10% grades first.
A total of 36 core drill holes (800 meters)
were done by SRG (Sama at that time) on the Lola Graphite deposit in 2014. The drill holes
were distributed over a strike length of 5.2 kilometers of the
entire 8.7-kilometer-long deposit. The graphite mineralization is
well exposed at surface over the entire strike length, with surface
sample grades ranging from trace to up to 20% Cg (graphitic carbon).
The mineralisation is often seen as agglomerates of high graphite
concentration that can exceed 50% to 60% visible graphite content.
Drilling now underway: A ~4,825-meter
(~157 DDH) drilling program was initiated in H1-2017 on the property
with an objective to delineate National Instrument 43-101 resources.
SRG is still drilling on the property and has used the end of
September-2017 as a cut off for holes to be included in the PFS that
the Company's independent engineering firm
Met-Chem/DRA is expected
to have ready by the end of 2017. SRG will continue its drilling
after September and use the balance of the results in the expected
Cost effective: This Mining Journal
envisions SRG in a position to be selling large-flakes, that require
nominal simple/low-cost (say ~near-$US300/t) processing (see related press release "SRG
Achieves 96% Graphite Purity Via Simple Flotation"), into a range of markets
without further processing at say US$1,200/t to US$1,700/t -- very high margins. One of SRG's primary objectives
is to establish mineral resources within the weathered portion of
the deposit, the first 20 meters or so. The weathered material is
easily accessible as it is outcropping at surface, there is no
overburden to remove, and mining will not require blasting. SRG
plans to process the material on site using typical flotation,
thereby producing no harmful waste.

Table 2. (above) Summary of metallurgical
tests performed at ActLab Laboratory in Canada for the oxide
material (saprolite; 0-20 meters from surface). Analysis performed
on samples from SRG’s Lola Graphite deposit, including geochemical,
mineralogical and metallurgical testing, yielded excellent results
Tests returned purities of 99.7% and 99.1% graphitic carbon (“Cg“)
for +48 mesh (>0.31 millimeters (“mm”) and the -48+80 mesh (between
0.18 mm and 0.31 mm), respectively using a light caustic acid wash
(10% concentration). The majority of the concentrate, 89%, is made
up of flake sizes greater than 0.18 millimeters. Super-jumbo flakes
(>0.50 mm) account for 29% of the concentrate with purities of 96.6%
and 95.9% Cg obtained using the basic flotation process.
Favorable metallurgy - free from impurities:
Preliminary metallurgical tests on the top 20 m of oxide material
returned excellent results. The graphite concentrate appears to be
exempt of contaminants (Cu, Mo, V, etc) that are often seen in
problematic concentrations in graphite concentrates from numerous
other graphite deposits around the world and particularly in
southern Africa. Mineralogical studies show that all the sulphide
minerals have been naturally leached from the oxide facies,
resulting in a chemically purer concentrate. For the same reason,
the tailings are also expected to be non-acid generating.
Lola graphite has favorable ash
composition and the comparably low efforts required
to attain high carbon grades.
This graphite has
characteristics that are suitable for highly
demanding applications like lithium-ion batteries or
Purification testing performed
was “mild” compared to the “harsh” purification
usually applied for lithium-ion battery grade,
thereby attesting again to the likelihood that the
material will be very suitable for battery
The volatiles are low,
oxidation resistance is very high and the specific
surface area is in the normal range.
The graphite from the Lola
Deposit has a high bulk density (>700 g/l), typical
Chinese graphite has bulk densities of 450-550 g/l
for +80 mesh.
Doftner-Anzaplan from Germany
reported that bulk density, tap density, morphology,
chemical purity and specific surface area of the
spherical graphite product obtained from SRG’s Lola
Graphite Deposit are similar to typical spherical
graphite products in the market. The produced
graphite concentrate is well suited for generating
anode material for lithium-ion battery -- see
related November 29, 2017 update entitled "SRG’s

The absence of impurities at the Lola Graphite
Deposit can be traced to the origin on the carbon. Unlike most other
deposits which were created from organics matter (with impurities)
deposited, the Lola Deposit is at least 3.6B+ years old and has no
organic composition to it as a carbon that has come from the earths
mantel (deep inside the earth).

in Guinea: SRG's management team has
experience running mining operations in the
country. Guinea is no stranger to mining and has
a mining culture as it is the largest bauxite
producer in the world with an international
array of companies present. Guinea is considered a stable
mining-friendly jurisdiction, ideologically
stable without issues and they have free
elections. There have only been four Presidents
since the French granted Guinea independence in
October-1958 (the French left in 1959), the current President was first elected
in 2012 for a 5 year term and has since been
re-elected. Economic activity is encouraged and

The Lola Graphite deposit is located approximately
1,000 kilometers east of Conakry, the capital of the Republic of Guinea.
The deposit was named after the nearby town of Lola, located some 3.5
kilometers to the east.

Strong community and government support:
Looking at the map above, note the small town of Lola located ~3km from
the deposit. There is no one on top of the deposit, and the deposit area
has been reserved for SRG. The Company has the full support of the town
counsel and the whole area. The tremendous relationship everyone has in
the area was solidified a few years ago when the area was effected by
the Ebola crisis and all commerce was effectively shut down for months,
SRG was one of the only companies in that part of the world that kept
everyone it employed in the town on the payroll until the crisis blew
over, and SRG received a red-carpet style reception from the community
upon return. SRG has recently done a presentation to the President of
Guinea personally and has the full support of both the President and the
Minister of Mines. The area needs jobs and development and the project
is quick to production.
Infrastructure: There is a
main road cutting through the northern portion of the Lola Graphite
property, this is a paved road that links Lola to the capital of Guinea,
Conakry ~1,000 km away on the coast, which has direct access to ports.
The deposit is right on this road.
Figure 7. (above) - This is the original outcrop
discovery located along the side of the road. Note in the image all
the spotted banding, dark/brown/grayish material is bands of graphite up
to 15% - 20%, and the lighter brown/grey is typical of 2%.
Power on the property is via generator. The area
has a very good supply of water as it is a forestry climate with ~1,600
mm of rain per year.
Discovered in the 50’s by the
BUMIFOM: 309 pits,
metallurgical tests, plans for production
1959: Guinean independence,
BUMIFOM left the country
SRG re-discovered the deposit
French company BUMIFOM (“Bureau Minier de la France Outremer”)
originally discovered the Lola Graphite deposit during construction of
the Conakry-Lola road in 1951. BUMIFOM’s work on the property included
309 pits, metallurgical tests and the elaboration of plans for
production. However, in 1959, following Guinea’s declaration
independence, BUMIFOM abandoned the project and it was subsequently
forgotten until 2012 when SRG re-discovered the deposit.
When we say 're-discovered', the graphite deposit
was literally re-discovery; while walking the road noting geology
principles of SRG (Sama Resources at the time) found the outcrop and
bands of graphite.
Timeline; exploration and development
program for SRG's Lola Graphite deposit:
Table 3. (above) Program timeline - SRG will use a cut-off of September 30, 2017 for drilling to be included
in the PFS, the drilling will continue over the Fall and include more
sectors for the Feasibility study in mid-2018. The environmental
baseline is ongoing, along with the social economic assessments,

Potential markets for SRG's anticipated
concentrate from Lola Graphite Deposit
Table 4. (above) Potential markets for various
size of flakes that SRG flake distribution can cater to. SRG is able
to cover the entire spectrum of industries. The refractory market,
foundry market, and special products all need large to super-jumbo, they
are not interested in small or medium. This Mining Journal
anticipates that producing by simple straight floatation will cost SRG
say US$300/t, the Company will sell that material without further
processing for US$1,200/t - US$1,700/t. There is also a portion of the
graphite that is in the fine to medium flake and that material may be
directed to battery grade material.
