Northern Graphite, North America’s Only Producer of Graphite, Comments on
China Graphite Export Controls


Controls Would Require Western Battery Makers to Source Graphite from Outside of China, the World’s Largest Producer
Controls Underscore Importance of Government, Markets to Drive Industry Development

Ottawa, Ontario, October 23, 2023: Northern Graphite Corporation (NGC:TSX-V, NGPHF:OTCQB, FRA:0NG, XSTU:0NG) (the “Company” or “Northern”) is pleased to comment on the potential impacts of China’s decision to impose controls on some exports of graphite, a key component of Lithium-Ion batteries for electric vehicles, citing national security grounds.

Global media reported on Friday (October 20) that China’s Commerce Ministry will, as of December 1, require export permits for certain graphite products in a move, “conducive to ensuring the security and stability of the global supply chain and industrial chain, and conducive to better safeguarding national security interests.” China is the world’s largest producer of graphite, a key component of batteries for electric vehicles and also widely used in traditional graphite markets.

Northern Graphite’s cornerstone Lac des Isles mine in Quebec, Canada has been supplying traditional graphite markets for over 30 years, from refractory bricks for steelmaking to heat management in mobile phones and friction and lubrication products for brakes and brake linings for the global automobile industry.

“This news out of China underscores that the onus is on the West to develop secure sources of graphite supply to ensure a smooth energy transition,” said Northern Chief Executive Officer Hugues Jacquemin. “Northern is the only natural graphite producing company in North America, has multiple development projects, and is well positioned to be a real solution for the entire graphite market value chain as demand for this critical component of Lithium-Ion batteries builds in coming years.”

Northern is targeting production expansion at its Lac des Iles mine in Quebec together with the restart of its Okanjande mine in Namibia and construction of its Bissett Creek project in Ontario. A planned 200,000-tonnes-per-year Battery Anode Material facility in Baie-Comeau, also in Quebec, is forecast to begin supplying battery makers with first-phase production in 2026.

China export controls as reported would make it even more critical for automakers to lock in graphite supplies outside of China as shortages are already looming amid growing demand from the auto sector.

Graphite has been classified by the U.S. Department of Energy as one of five minerals deemed critical for the development of EV batteries and the energy transition, but it has largely been in the shadow of other battery minerals like lithium, cobalt, nickel, and manganese. For a vehicle to qualify for the full US$7,500 EV tax credit reflected in the landmark U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), a minimum percentage of the critical minerals by value in the battery (such as graphite, lithium, and cobalt) must be sourced from the United States or one of the countries with which the U.S. has a free trade agreement. Minimum requirements begin at 40 percent and increase to 80 percent by 2026 and 100 percent by 2028.

“I think it’s time for government and markets to increase their support of the graphite industry if it’s going to be ready to support the energy transition,” said Mr. Jacquemin.

Northern Graphite, whose Lac de Isles and Okanjande mines and facilities are fully permitted, is engaged with governments and automakers as it sets up to be the next generation carbon materials company for the energy transition. It has a sustainable, integrated, mine-to-market-to-battery solution that will be available as U.S. credits on EV batteries produced by the United States and their trading partners come into force through the end of the decade under the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act.

“This news out of China means that, even more than before, we are extremely well positioned to service demand for graphite from battery makers in North America. We have everything in place. As the only producer of graphite in North America, Northern Graphite is clearly in the driver's seat with a tremendous competitive advantage,” said Mr. Jacquemin.

About Northern Graphite
Northern is a Canadian, TSX Venture Exchange listed company that is focused on becoming a world leader in producing natural graphite and upgrading it into high value products critical to the green economy including anode material for lithium-ion batteries/EVs, fuel cells and graphene, as well as advanced industrial technologies.

Northern is the only graphite producing company in North America and will become the third-largest producer outside of China when its Namibian operations come back online. The Company also has a large-scale development project, Bissett Creek, in Ontario that we expect will be a source of continued production growth in the future. All projects have “battery quality” graphite and are located close to infrastructure in politically stable jurisdictions.

Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 29, 2023) - Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (FSE: 0NG) (XSTU: 0NG) (the "Company" or "Northern") is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent ("LOI") with the city of Baie-Comeau to purchase land for a 200,000 tonne per year Battery Anode Material ("BAM") plant as it advances plans to supply anode material to lithium-ion battery manufacturing plants throughout North America. The LOI, which is subject to financing and receipt of regulatory approvals, gives Northern the right to purchase a 1.2 million m2 property, approximately 300 acres, in the Baie-Comeau port industrial zone, with access to municipal services and infrastructure, for US$1.2 million.

"This is a big step forward in our strategy to be an integrated, sustainable, cost-effective mine-to-market supplier to the booming EV battery manufacturing market and a key player in North America's critical minerals strategy," said Northern Chief Executive Officer Hugues Jacquemin. "From here everything flows. We now know where the facility will be located, how much power it will require and where the power needs to go and can proceed with all the design and logistical work required to begin construction."

There is effectively no capacity in the west to convert graphite mine concentrates into anode material and the EV manufacturers are depending on project proponents such as Northern to fill the void and supply existing and planned lithium-ion battery manufacturing plants throughout North America. The Baie-Comeau BAM plant will be one of the world's largest such conversion facilities and will process concentrates from Northern's mines as well as from other producers that will be coming online. The plant will have one of the lowest CO2 footprints in the industry due to its access to green, hydroelectric power with pricing that is among the most competitive in the world.

''ID Manicouagan is delighted with this agreement, which marks an essential milestone in the development of our partnership with Northern for the implementation of a major graphite processing project in the industrial port zone of Baie-Comeau," said Innovation et Developpement Manicouagan ("ID Manicouagan") President Marcel Cadoret.

"The evaluation of options, and the selection and securing of the industrial site set the stage for the technical, social and economic studies needed to implement plans for one of the largest suppliers of battery materials in Quebec and North America,'' said Guy Simard, director of industrial development for ID Manicouagan.

Baie-Comeau is located on the shores of the St. Lawrence River, approximately 400 km north-east of Quebec City in the Cote-Nord economic region and has direct access to the rest of North America via road, rail and a deep water, all-season port. The BAM plant, which the Company expects the first phase would cost in the range of $500 million, and which the Company would target for completion in 2026, will be subject to financing, regulatory approvals and certain other conditions, and is eligible for assistance under programs offered by the province of Québec, the Canadian and U.S. governments, as well as other assistance by the Manicouagan region and potential Plan Nord incentives.

EV makers have struck deals with lithium juniors in the past year, with graphite not receiving as much attention. Will this change?

US electric vehicle pioneer Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has inked a graphite supply deal with Australia’s Magnis Energy (ASX:MNS), as carmakers continue to look for ways to secure battery metals output to meet their targets.

The deal between Tesla and Magnis is only the second one signed for graphite production with a mining company. The first one also involved the Elon Musk led company, which secured supply from Syrah Resources (ASX:SYR) at the end of 2021. Syrah operates the Balama project in Mozambique and its Vidalia processing plant in Louisiana.
