About DNI Metals
Certain, advisors and directors of DNI have built and worked at historical hard rock graphite mines in Canada (Ontario and Quebec) and Australia. Between them, they have built three processing plants and designed two others, all which were shut down in the 1990's due to increased Chinese competition.
It was our team's understanding of the high production and capital expenditure costs associated with "hard rock" graphite mining that inspired DNI to search for saprolite-hosted graphite deposits.
Certain parts Madagascar and Brazil, produce graphite from weathered material called saprolite.
According to Dictionary.com, saprolite is described as:
"Soft, thoroughly decomposed and porous rock, often rich in clay, formed by the in place chemical weathering of igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary rocks. Saprolite is especially common in humid and tropical climates. It is usually reddish brown or grayish white and contains those structures (such as cross-stratification) that were present in the original rock from which it formed."
DNI owns a permitted, saprolite-hosted graphite deposit in Madagascar; located 50kms from the country's main seaport. The deposit is 1.6kms off an arterial paved highway. As per the press release dated December 16, 2016, DNI has signed an agreement with Cougar Metals with the intention of developing the project should the economic viability and technical feasibility be established. A drilling program will commence this month.
DNI has a graphite wholesale business, in which it buys and sells high quality graphite.
