Graphite Energy Corp (OTCMKTS:GRXXF) has been on a rampage to the upside since trading started in earnest at the outset of 2018. The stock has basically doubled in the past two months and volume is growing powerfully during the run. The theme here is about graphite exploration and production. As we understand it, graphite is starting to become a tertiary play on the electric vehicle theme, along with lithium and cobalt, as well as some apparent applications for solar energy engineering.
In that vein, the company just announced that it has signed a drilling contract with George Downing Estate Drilling Ltd. of Abitibi, Quebec, to start drilling at its Lac Aux Bouleaux Graphite Property (the “LAB Property”) on or about March 10, 2018. According to the release, “the drilling program is a follow-up to the promising results from the Company’s recently completed exploration work which confirmed the presence of high grade large flake graphite in the range of 2.20% to 22.30% graphite carbon (Cg) in selected grab samples (see January 15, 2018, news release).”
