molo graphite project, toliara - mining technology | mining news and views updated daily

Located in the Fotadrevo village of Toliara province, Madagascar, the Molo graphite project is a superior-quality SuperFlake graphite deposit, which is capable of achieving near battery-grade purity of 98% with simple flotation.

Located in the Fotadrevo village of Toliara province, Madagascar, the Molo graphite project is a superior-quality SuperFlake graphite deposit, which is capable of achieving near battery-grade purity of 98% with simple flotation.

NextSource Materials (formerly Energizer Resources) fully owns the graphite mine. The full feasibility study (FS) of the project was completed in 2015, and further updated in June 2017 to incorporate the companys game-changing, fully modular build approach that dramatically enhanced the economics of the project compared to the 2015 FS.

Commissioning is anticipated to start at the beginning of 2019 and phase one of the project is expected to produce 17,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of finished SuperFlake graphite concentrate. The project is estimated to have a mine life of more than 90 years based on reserves alone.

The project area is characterised with the presence of supracrustal and plutonic rocks of late Neoproterozoic age. The rocks are believed to have metamorphosed under upper amphibolite facies, and deformed with upright north-northeast-trending structures. In laymens terms, the project lies in a rare transpressive shear system, characterised by very high temperatures and pressure that have culminated in the creation of very high-quality flake graphite.

The supracrustal rocks are composed of migmatitic quartzo-feldspathic rock types, in addition to marble, quartzite and amphibolite, while the meta-plutonic rocks host migmatitic feldspathic rock types along with biotite granodiorite and leucogranite.

The Molo graphitic zone consists of multi-folded graphitic strata, which can be seen from the surface over a strike length of more than 2km. The surface geology comprises resistant mountain ranges of graphitic schist and gneiss, in addition to fracture-lined vanadium mineralisation and graphitic schist float.

The Molo graphite mine is estimated to contain proven and probable reserves of 22.44Mt grading 7.02% total graphitic carbon (C). It is estimated to contain NI 43-101-compliant mineral resources of 141.28Mt grading 6.13% C.

Conventional open-pit mining method including drilling and blasting will be applied at the graphite mine. Small to medium-sized mining equipment such as 30t dump trucks, 2m excavator, and front-end loaders will be used for mining operations.

The Molo mine will be constructed in two phases using an all-modular construction method complying with European Standards. The project will consist of 36 individual modules and require a build time of nine months.

The modules will be assembled at an offshore facility and undergo Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) process to verify the mines process flow design. They will then be dismantled, packed in individual shipping containers and transported to the site and re-assembled.

The first phase of mine development will be capable of processing 240,000tpa of feed and produce 17,000tpa of SuperFlake graphite concentrate and have a mine life of more than 90 years. Phase two will produce in excess of 50,000tpa of finished SuperFlake graphite concentrate.

The ore processing facility or concentrator at the mine will consist of conventional crushing, milling and flotation circuits along with beneficiation, dewatering, bagging and tailings processing areas.

The concentrate will be screened into four size fractions, and bagged separately as final product. The bagged products will be packed in containers and taken to the Port of Fort Dauphin for export to various markets.

NextSource released to the market two years ago that its SuperFlake graphite concentrate has been verified for all major end markets for natural flake graphite, namely refractories, anode material for lithium-ion batteries and specialty graphite foils, also referred to as expandable graphite.

Power required for the mines phase one operations will be provided by two 1.4MW diesel generators. Water will be sourced from a well field, which has been defined by drilling and geo-hydrological modelling.

NextSource Materials engineering and mine-readiness team consists of senior mine engineers from DRA Global, Africas leading E.P.C.M firm. DRA had also compiled the technical report and participated in preparing the feasibility study report.

Internationally respected metallurgical and processing laboratory SGS Canada Metallurgical Services conducted the companys 200t pilot-plant, the largest pilot plant of any known graphite junior to date, and verification test work for the project, which has completely de-risked the Molo Projects metallurgy.

Description Pure graphite is a mineral form of the element carbon (element #6, symbol C). It forms as veins and disseminations in metamorphic rocks as the result of the metamorphism of organic material included in limestone deposits. It is an extremely soft mineral and it breaks into minute, flexible flakes that easily slide over one another. This feature accounts for graphites distinctive greasy feel. This greasy characteristic makes graphite a good lubricant. Because it is a solid material, it is known as a dry lubricant. This is useful in applications where wet lubricants, such as oil, cannot be used. Graphite is the only non-metal element that is a good conductor of electricity. Natural graphite is used mostly in what are called refractory applications. Refractory applications are those that involve extremely high heat and therefore demand materials that will not melt or disintegrate under such extreme conditions. One example of this use is in the crucibles used in the steel industry. Such refractory applications account for the majority of the usage of graphite.

From 1890 to 1920, underground mining of graphite was practiced in New York and Pennsylvania. From 1942 until the end of World War II, only open-pit methods were used, because working weathered rock was relatively easy. Graphite was mined underground at Dillon, Montana, during World War II, but shortly thereafter mining ceased because it was too costly to compete with Sri Lankan graphite.

Madagascar operations are entirely open pit, but in Bavaria, Korea, Mexico, and Sri Lanka, because of the depth and physical characteristics of the deposits, underground mining is practiced. Mexican underground mining operations are 100400 m below the surface, measured on the angle of the vein. Some of the older mines in Sri Lanka reached depths in excess of 450 m on a vertical plane. For many years, mining operations in Sri Lanka were primitive and ore extraction was slow and cumbersome. The mines were mechanized after World War II.

Madagascar operations also were primitive because low labor costs prohibited mechanization. After 1938 the mines began to use mechanical equipment to remove the overburden, and bulldozers and tractors easily removed the graphite-bearing schists.

Worldwide demand for graphite steadily increased throughout 2012 and into 2013. This increase resulted from the improvement of global economic conditions and its impact on industries that use graphite.

Principal import sources of natural graphite were, in descending order of tonnage, China, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, and Madagascar, which combined accounted for 97% of the tonnage and 90% of the value of total imports. Mexico and Vietnam provided all the amorphous graphite, and Sri Lanka provided all the lump and chippy dust variety. China, Canada, and Madagascar were, in descending order of tonnage, the major suppliers of crystalline flake and flake dust graphite.

During 2013, China produced the majority of the worlds graphite. Graphite production increased in China, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka from that of 2012, while production decreased in Brazil from 2012 production levels.

Uses Because graphite flakes slip over one another, giving it its greasy feel, graphite has long been used as a lubricant in applications where wet lubricants, such as oil, can not be used. Technological changes are reducing the need for this application.

The property consists of 250 map-designated claims forming nine main claim blocks spread over 13,694ha. The Tony block is the most prominent and consists of 145 contiguous map-designated claims spread over 7,543.86ha.

Most of the lithologies on the Tony block are typical metasedimentary rocks, assigned to be a part of the Grenville Series of Logan. The principal lithologies found at the Grenville Supergroup are aluminous paragneisses, marble, quartzite, amphibolite, and other related rocks.

The aluminous paragneiss is the most abundant rock type encountered in the area and is also host to the graphite mineralisation on the Tony claim block. The paragneisses are derived from the metamorphism and deformation of the original politic sedimentary rocks that took place during the Grenville Orogeny.

Crystalline flake graphite mineralisation is found at the Tony claim block mostly aligned parallel to the main foliation and is disseminated in the marbles and rusty biotite paragneisses of the Grenville Supergroup in the central metasedimentary belt in Quebec and Ontario.

The concentrator is designed to produce a graphite concentrate containing 97% Cg from an ore containing 4.39% Cg. The beneficiation process will include crushing, grinding, conventional flotation, polishing, and column flotation to achieve the concentrate.

Nouveau Monde is commissioning a demonstration plant, which aims to evaluate and enhance the graphite concentration before commercial launch. It will follow the natural graphite processing procedures, and initially transform the ore by liberating and concentrating the natural graphite flakes.

The demo plant will be located on an existing industrial property in Saint-Michel-des-Saints and is estimated to produce 1,000t of graphite concentrate a year, including 250t of battery-grade graphite.
