Then over two years, a gradual price of manufacturing is deliberate at a price of 45,000 tonnes of anode materials and purified jumbo flake graphite. The mine may also produce 100,000 tonnes yearly of excessive purity flake graphite, making it the biggest producer within the Western World. The third section, starting in 2025 and going ahead, can be marked by enlargement each Matawinie mine and anode materials manufacturing capability.
The mission has a pit constrained measured and indicated sources of 120.3 million tonnes grading 4.26% graphitic carbon (Cg). This quantity consists of possible reserves of 59.8 million tonnes grading 4.35% Cg. The inferred useful resource is 4.5 million tonnes at 4.43% Cg.
Metso Outotec has been engaged to provide key mineral processing gear for the concentrator.
Because the tempo of development gears up, L. Fournier et Fils will construct the 7.8 km entry highway connecting the mine website to Freeway 131. The highway is to be accomplished in September.
Nouveau Monde has additionally created an environmental monitoring program to supervise the development, operation and closure actions at Matawinie. Third get together biologists have been requested to conduct inspections of the presence of weak species.
