Focus Metals Changes Its Name to Focus Graphite Inc.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:15 PM on Thursday, May 24th, 2012

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(May 24, 2012) - Focus Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMS)(OTCQX:FCSMF)(FRANKFURT:FKC) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that following the approval of a special resolution by the Corporation’s shareholders at the annual and special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held on May 3rd, 2012 in Ottawa, Ontario, the Corporation has changed its name and will now trade on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) under the name “Focus Graphite Inc.” as of May 25, 2012. The Corporation will continue trading on the Exchange under the stock symbol “FMS”.

Focus Graphite President and CEO Gary Economo said the change in corporate identity represents a truer description of the company’s core business activities.

“Focus Graphite represents a turning point for us and for our shareholders as we prepare to transition out of pre-development at Lac Knife and into development during the course of the coming year to 18 months” Mr. Economo said.

“Our aim is to develop and then manufacture the best technology graphite in the world,” he said. “Additional shareholder value will come from our investment in commercialized graphene through our joint venture partner, Grafoid Inc.”

On May 7, 2012, Focus Metals Inc. and Hydro-Québec’s world-leading research institute, IREQ, announced the signing of a licensing agreement enabling the development of a graphite purification facility and a graphite anode production facility for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.

Mr. Economo said the agreement provided a critical pillar in building Focus Graphite’s mine-to-end-user supply chain structure.

Graphite Express Toronto Preview – Focus Metals

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:20 AM on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

In advance of today’s Graphite Express Conference In Toronto (which we are a proudly sponsoring), we’re happy to provide you with the following concise overview of presenting company Focus Metals.    Focus Metals is a sponsor of our site.  The  following summary is provided courtesy of this Financial Post article, written by Resource Clips.

Focus Metals’ (TSXV:FMS) Lac Knife Project in northeast Quebec has “the highest-grade graphite deposit in the world,” according to President/CEO Gary Economo. The company plans to finish its PEA in 2Q this year and, on completing permitting, begin open-pit mine construction. “We won’t need a feasibility study because we’ll have offtake agreements, and we have our financing already pretty well defined,” Economo explains. Metallurgical tests announced April 11 show the deposit holds 46.1% large flake (+48 mesh to +100 mesh) and 39% medium flake (+150 mesh to +200 mesh) with an overall global recovery test rate of 85.9%. Focus projects mine production of 20,000 tonnes per annum grading 95% C in late 2013, rising to 23,000 tpa grading 99.9% in 2014.

 Focus has a 40% interest in Grafoid Inc, a company dedicated to producing graphene using ore from Lac Knife. Focus also holds a 50% interest in the Kwyjibo Polymetallic Property in northeast Quebec.

AGORACOM Interview: Bob Moriarty Says Graphite Is For Real & Gold Juniors Poised For 500% Gains

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:56 PM on Monday, March 26th, 2012

I’m very pleased to announce the completion of an interview with Bob Moriarty, one of the junior resource industry’s most respected commentators whose market thoughts can be found at 321gold.com and 321energy.com.   More than just a market commentator, I look forward to reading Bob Moriarty’s comments because he simply isn’t one to sit on the fence and hedge his words.  He makes a call and says it like it is.

This rare trait most likely stems from the fact that Bob was trained to make split-second life or death situations as a young man.  Specifically, Moriarty was a Marine F-4B pilot at the age of twenty and a veteran of over 820 missions in Vietnam. Becoming a Captain in the Marines at 22, he was one of the most highly decorated pilots in the war. He went on to ferry General Aviation aircraft all over the world for 15 years with over 240 over the water deliveries. He holds 14 International Aviation records including Lindbergh’s record for time between New York to Paris in two different categories.

As such, when someone like Bob Moriarty speaks, it behooves all of us to listen.  So what did we talk about today?

1. Why the explosion of interest, investment and growth in new graphite mine development? Is it for real?

2. Why graphite is an analog of oil.

3. Why the present ratio of the XAU (Philly Gold and Silver Index) over gold almost guarantees a 500% return on gold shares over the next two years.

4. Why the banking system is going to collapse / The implications of $708 trillion dollars in derivatives.

5. Middle East tension

This was a great interview.  One of the best we’ve had with a major market commentator, which have included the likes of  Eric Sprott, JF Tardif, Barry Ritholtz , Paul Kedrosky and Eric Coffin.  What made it one of our better ones? Though I agree with much that Bob had to say, I challenged him by playing Devil’s Advocate and arguing the case as presented by Wall Street and the mass media.  Though Bob didn’t budge and argued his case even harder, he was kind of enough to tell me how pleased he was with the interview.

The ultimate judge will be you, so listen in on the first few minutes and see if it carries you through to the fireworks at the end.

On behalf of myself and the entire listening audience, I want to thank Bob for taking time out of his Sunday to speak with us.

Regards,

George
