Northern Graphite logoNorthern Graphite Corporation announced that they managed to produce graphene on a test basis using large flake graphite from the Company's Bissett Creek project in Northern Ontario. The company says that their large flake graphite was evaluated as a source material for making graphene by an eminent professor in the field at the Chinese Academy of Sciences who is doing research making graphene sheets larger than 30cm2 in size using the graphene oxide methodology.

The tests indicated that graphene made from Northern's jumbo flake is superior to Chinese powder and large flake graphite in terms of size, higher electrical conductivity, lower resistance and greater transparency.
