Critical Minerals & Rare Earths

May 14, 2019 (Source) — Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQX: NGPHF) (the “Company”) announces that it has engaged Red Cloud Klondike Strike Inc. (“RCKS”) to act as its strategic and financial advisor. RCKS will assist the Company in evaluating and pursuing alternatives for maximizing shareholder value including identifying potential sources of financing and/or corporate partners needed to move the Bissett Creek graphite project forward.

Gregory Bowes, CEO, commented that: “While the supply/demand outlook for graphite is compelling and the Bissett Creek project has good economics even at currently depressed prices, investor interest in the sector has been low for some time which has severely impacted the Company’s valuation. The experience and expertise of RCKS will greatly assist the Company in evaluating strategic options for maximizing shareholder value given the current environment.”

About Northern Graphite

Northern Graphite is a Canadian development company with a 100% interest in the Bissett Creek graphite deposit which is located in the southern part of Canada with ready access to labour, supplies, equipment and concentrate transportation.

The percentage of large/XL flake graphite in the Bissett Creek deposit is one of the highest in the industry which will enable the Company to focus on high margin and value added industrial markets, mainly in the US and Europe.
