Interview with Don Baxter, President and CEO of Alabama Graphite Corporation: The Most advanced Battery Grade Graphite Project in USA
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Alabama Graphite Corp. (TSX-V: CSPG; OTCQB: CSPGF; FRANKFURT: 1AG) is a Canadian-based flake graphite development company, as well as an aspiring battery materials production and technology company. The Company operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, Alabama Graphite Company Inc. (a company registered in the state of Alabama). With the only completely battery-focused flake graphite project in the contiguous USA, Alabama Graphite intends to become the first producing American graphite mine this century — and to become a reliable, long-term leading US supplier of specialty high-purity graphite for the growing green-energy Lithium-ion battery markets. We learned from Don Baxter, President and CEO of Alabama Graphite Corporation, that the only significant future demand for flake graphite is for battery-ready graphite materials, and that's what the company is focused on. According to Mr. Baxter, graphite demand is only projected to increase for battery graphite, and you need to have the requisite expertise to process the material. Companies interested in the batteries made by Alabama Graphite include some Department of Defense contractors, who are mandated to use products made and sourced in the contiguous USA whenever possible. No other company out there can offer that, which puts Alabama Graphite in a uniquely strong position.

by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Image Resources NL (ASX: IMA) is an advanced exploration company located in Australia. It is currently focused on the development of its 100%-owned, flagship Boonanarring and Atlas projects with high-grade, high-value mineral resources.

The company has a binding off-take contract for 100% of the HMC for the life of the project. According to Mr. Mutz the company plans to be moving into production in 2018.
