COURTENAY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2021 / Canada's House of Commons is holding a series of parliamentary committee meetings to study "... positioning Canada as a responsible source in critical minerals and battery value chains in support of renewable energy and clean technology...". As a representative of the mining industry, the CEO of Eagle Graphite (TSX VENTURE:EGA), Jamie Deith, has been invited to give a 5-minute opening statement, and to join the subsequent discussion panel on Monday, February 22, 2021.
Graphite plays a critical role as the battery anode in virtually all commercially available lithium-ion batteries, including all models of electric cars. Eagle Graphite has the only flake graphite quarry in western North America.
"We are honoured to play a role in this process," states Deith. "The global shift toward new energy technologies is no longer in doubt, but today's supply chains are completely reliant on sources that are non-transparent and prone to political manipulation. Canada has an opportunity to establish ourselves as a stable and reliable partner participating at all levels of the value chain, if we decide as a nation to seize this role."
