IWA Note: IWA would like to point out that if the world is going to sustain its push to green technologies, it will need specialist minerals. Graphite is one of them Northern Graphite is home to transforming in front of your eyes, and the opportunity to buy before this stock price is re-rated is now. Rare earths, copper, lithium, and platinum are among the elements expected to help the world make the transition to a reduced dependency on fossil fuels. It’s graphite, though, that is the basis for lithium-ion batteries that power everything from laptops to smartphones and increasingly, electric cars. It’s used to make the anodes of a lithium-ion battery, without which the battery couldn’t function.
