Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (“Magnis”, or the “Company”] (ASX: MNS) is pleased to announce that the Company has increased its shareholding in the iM3 New York Battery Plant, following an investment made into the project, coupled with the signing of an agreement [“Transaction”] to acquire Boston Energy and Innovation Pty Limited’s [“BEI”] entire shareholding [“Shareholding”] in the US based entity, Imperium 3 New York LLC [iM3NY].

Under the terms of the Transaction, Magnis has acquired BEI’s entire holdings in iM3NY as well as Boston Opportunities interest in iM3NY. The consideration for the Shareholding is US$350,000, with funds to be paid by 30 June 2020.

Magnis Chairman, Frank Poullas, commented: “We are committed to seeing the New York project through to production.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update


  • Bulk sample of Springdale graphite concentrate estimated to be completed in Q2 2021.
  • Concentrate material will then be sent to Germany to test its amenability for the production of battery anode material suitable for use in EVs.
  • Final test results expected in Q3 2021.

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) is pleased provide an update on ongoing test work on natural flake graphite from its Springdale Graphite Project (Springdale) located in Western Australia. Both excellent grade and recoveries were achieved on initial tests, leading to commencement of work to produce a bulk sample for further testing. Importantly, the graphite concentrates previously produced demonstrated a unique and potentially very valuable characteristic in its small size distribution, with two-thirds of the product passing the 38 µm size fraction screen. Generally, this small size fraction of graphite is a by-product of processing of larger flake fractions, which produces smaller size graphite, but in doing so also damages the smaller flake material in the process, reducing their performance and value. Deposits that contain high quality ultra-fine graphite are uncommon and are potentially suitable for supplying the expanding battery anode market, which continues to grow as the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increase. Graphite suitable for battery anode production also achieves premium pricing in graphite markets, making it a highly sought-after product.
