Energizer Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration and mine development company based in Toronto, Canada, that is developing its 100%-owned, flagship Molo graphite project in southern Madagascar. The company released a robust PEA for Molo in February 2013 and has now initiated a full feasibility study (FS). As part of the FS, Energizer recently completed a pilot plant operation, generating 12 tonnes of finished graphite concentrate for the purposes of evaluation by potential strategic partners. The FS is expected to be completed and released to the market by Q4/14.

Filipe Martins, GMP Securities (6/9/14) “Energizer Resources Inc.’s Molo project is world class in every aspect. . .we are initiating coverage. . .on the belief that the company offers investors best-in-class exposure to high-quality graphite, a market we believe has good long-term supply-demand fundamentals. With more and more developers coming on the scene aiming to stake a claim to the finite pool of capital available to develop and build their respective projects, we think it is necessary to differentiate the likely winners from the losers. With this in mind, we believe Energizer’s Molo project stands out as one of the best graphite projects globally because of its flake distribution, low strip and capital intensity.”
Emma Hughes, Industrial Minerals (4/24/14) “One company that could stand to benefit from developments like Tesla’s Gigafactory is Canada-based Energizer Resources Inc., which is looking to supply flake graphite from its Green Giant project in Madagascar. . .the company’s flagship Molo deposit is the second largest confirmed flake graphite resource in the world and the biggest under Canadian NI 43-101 regulations. . .over the last 18 months, exploration work in graphite has been minimal as funding became hard to come by. Energizer used this downtime to progress Molo to the level it is at today. . . it looks like this momentum will continue throughout this year.”
The Mining Report Interview with Kiril Mugerman (3/4/14) “Energizer Resources Inc. is now focusing entirely on graphite. The company has presented a fairly ambitious plan to produce over 80K tons of graphite annually. My worry with Molo is infrastructure. With such high production volume, we expect marketing and logistics could be major risks. That said, based on metallurgical results the company published in 2013, we expect that Energizer will most likely scale down Molo based on improved flake distribution, which could improve the project significantly and reduce these risks.” More >
The Mining Report Interview with Stephen Riddle (2/18/14) “Energizer Resources Inc. is determining its expected footprint. By footprint, I mean the typical particle size breakdown of the coarse, medium and fine flake, and the purity level for each. When that is determined, the company can calculate realistic selling prices based on expected volumes.
