Renascor Resources' Siviour Project - Purified Spherical Graphite/Battery Anode Material Production Plant

Mineral resource or reserve: 
Total Mineral Resources 87.4Mt @ 7.5% TGC 6.6Mt Contained Graphite; Total Ore Reserve Estimate 51.5Mt @7.4% TGC 3.8Mt Contained Graphite.
Current or planned level of processing: 28,000tpa of battery anode material (purified spherical graphite) .
2-staged processing:
Stage 1 - crushing, grinding, flotation circuit to create approximately 94 to 96% carbon Graphite Concentrate product.
Stage 2 - two-step process of milling then purification through a low temperature caustic roast process.
b) Renascor aims to create in Australia, the first vertically integrated, in-country Purified Spherical Graphite operation outside of China with the battery anode material operation.

Technology utilised

Renascor had developed a purification process that avoids the use of Hydrofluoric (“HF”) acid, offering a cleaner HF-free alternative to prevailing process used currently.
Renascor’s eco-friendly graphite purification technology achieved outstanding results of 99.98% purity in recent testing at leading German independent battery mineral consultancy group Dorfner Anzaplan.

Project highlights

  • Renascor’s Siviour Graphite Deposit is the world’s second largest Proven Reserve of Graphite and the largest Graphite Reserve outside of Africa.
  • The favourable geology and location of the Siviour Graphite Deposit will allow Renascor to produce Graphite Concentrate at a cost that is amongst the lowest in the world.
  • Renascor has developed a proven eco-friendly, HF-free purification process endorsed by leading global anode companies.
