About Northern Graphite Corporation

Northern Graphite is a graphite development and battery technology company whose 100% owned Bissett Creek project is located in eastern Canada. Bissett Creek provides the Company with a natural competitive advantage in the battery technology field as it has the highest percentage of battery grade material, the highest reported yield on conversion to anode material for batteries and a pristine, highly ordered crystal structure that has the potential to improve battery performance. The Company is leveraging these advantages with proprietary coating and purification technologies to make better and lower cost anode materials and to replace the damaging environmental practices currently used in their manufacture.

Bissett Creek is the most advanced new graphite project with a bankable Feasibility Study and its major environmental permit. The Company believes that it has the best location/infrastructure, the lowest capital cost and the highest operating margin of any new graphite project and that it is the only one to have demonstrated it is economic at current prices and at production rates that are unlikely to adversely affect the pricing structure of the industry. Because of Chinese supply problems and the continued rapid growth in new uses such as lithium ion batteries, new western sources of graphite supply are needed.
