Graphite – McIntosh & Ceylon


McIntosh Graphite Project Locations

The McIntosh Project Graphite assets are a combined total Graphite resources of 23.8 million tonnes, grading 4.5% TGC, with 81% indicated (HXG ASX Announcement 5 April 2019). The graphite project continues to progress in collaboration with Hexagon’s JV partner, Green Critical Minerals Pty Ltd (GCM). Under the terms of the Agreement Green Critical Minerals (GCM) has the right to earn up to 80% interest in the Graphite Mineral Rights only across Hexagon’s McIntosh Project tenements. The tenements will remain wholly held/managed by Hexagon. The Agreement with GCM brings cash to Hexagon and exploration funding to the project and leverages off past investments made by the Company.

Details of the JV are detailed in HXG ASX Announcement 14 February 2022 and HXG ASX Announcement 24 November 2022.

In addition to expenditure on the GCM drill program GCM made the second staged payment of $200,000 to Hexagon Q4 2023.

Most recently GCM released the following announcements from its 2023 drill program:

These findings will be included in GCM’s updated PFS due in Q1 2024 and will form the basis of the expanded Emperor Resource.
