"We believe we have one of the best, undiscovered graphite plays in the mining and metals space," began Cliff Bream, CEO of Next Graphite, Inc. "Graphite's profile has been substantially elevated in the last year as major companies like Tesla have identified graphite as a strategic need to build the lithium-battery power plants needed by electric vehicles and hybrids. While this is a fast-growing market in itself, many other industries require natural, flake graphite for its unique properties and preferred option versus synthetic graphite. The fact that we hope to be close to re-igniting our Aukum graphite site after we re-assess the purity of our graphite flake is yet another reason we believe our partnership with Graphite Investing News is timely for investors hungry for a new and unique investment opportunity in Next Graphite's GPNE shares."
