Looking for an investment in graphite? Murdock Capital Partners is hosting a Symposium Series on the metal on May 4th in New York.
Graphite, an allotrope - or different physical form - of carbon, is a
good conductor of electricity and heat with a temperature resistance
above 3,500 degrees Celsius - the same temperature as the outer
atmosphere of the sun.
Unlike other metals, when heated, it does not expand.
The metal, like its sibling diamond, is one of the strongest and
hardest materials in the natural world and is used in a wide range of
As the graphite market bubble grows, so does investor interest and
scrutiny of a mining sector bedeviled historically by supply/demand
cycles, aided and abetted by China’s overwhelming market influence.
The United States, Europe and China regard graphite as a critical
material for future industrial growth. Global markets know this fact and
the response has been an explosion of interest, investment and growth
in new graphite mine development.
At the Murdock event, Zenyatta Ventures (CVE:ZEN), Strike Graphite
(CVE:SRK), Galaxy Capital Corp (CVE:GXY), Standard Graphite (CVE:SGH),
Flinders Resources (CVE:FDR) and Focus Metals (CVE:FMS) will be presenting.
Focus's Lac Knife, Quebec natural flake deposit holds the highest
grade of graphite in the world. The company’s NI 43-101 compliant
resource estimate validated its 16% grading and its commercial bragging
rights to that claim.
Most, if not all of Focus’ production, is destined for niche, high
demand, technology applications and in particular, it holds fine-mesh
graphite destined for the lithium-ion battery manufacturers.
The company also anticipates demand for its particular graphite from
the international scientific and industrial development communities
engaged in graphene research.
Focus Metals holds a 40 percent interest in Grafoid Inc., a graphene investment, research and development and patenting joint venture.

symposium will be held at the Solarium - 3 West Club, 3 West 51st
Street, New York, NY 10019, on Friday May 4, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 3:00
