I recently updated the TMR Advanced Graphite Projects Index, to reflect one new addition since the last update. The effective date of the latest edition is July 18, 2014. The specifics:
- On February 25, 2014, Buxton Resources Ltd. (ASX:BUX) announced a maiden JORC-compliant resource estimate for its Yalbra graphite project in Australia. According to the associated news release, 2.3 Mt of the resource is at the Inferred level @ 20.1% Cg, at a 0% Cg cut-off grade. The project is partially owned by Montezuma Mining Company Ltd (ASX:MZM).
You can access the updated details via the Index page.
The Index currently consists of 29 graphite mineral resources, associated with 26 advanced graphite projects, 21 companies and located in 8 countries. Including the projects on the Index, TMR is currently monitoring a total of 306 graphite projects under development associated with 138 companies in 27 countries.

What is your assessment of the Syrah Resources (ASX:SYR) prospects?
Have you checked ZEN.v – Zenyatta Ventures, what is your assessment
How does one read the charts? For example, Quantity of in-situ Graphite chart goes from 1 to 100 to 10,000 and has staggered y-axes. What value does each y-axis represent?
Folks – my apologies for not seeing this comments before now!
@Lok Chong: Syrah’s Balama deposits are evidently massive and high grade, two desirable characteristics of any project. there eis clearly a lot of interest in the company.
@E. Dengscherz: I am indeed familiar with Zenyatta and its Albany project. Certainly has a lot of potential for the production of high-purity and premium-priced graphite.
@b: If you’re referring to the x axis, I’ve used a logarithmic scale for the quantity chart, to better show the scale of the projects.
