Graphite

Graphite and graphene present a rapidly emerging opportunity for Archer

Carbon Allotropes

On 30 October 2017, Archer acquired the  Carbon Allotropes online graphite, graphene and carbon product sales business.  Carbon Allotropes’ clients are synergistic with Archer’s potential clients and include multinational companies, research institutions and development networks in Australia, Europe, the US and Asia. The business invoices approximately 25 clients per year, being a mix of large corporate and e-commerce businesses.

Carbon Allotropes provides its registered customers with high-quality graphite, graphene and other carbon based advanced materials products. It has over 100 registered customers and attracts over 25,000 visits to its website per year. In addition to the online marketplace, Carbon Allotropes also offers consulting and other associated services.

Eyre Peninsula Graphite Project

The Eyre Peninsula Graphite Projects comprise the Campoona Shaft, Campoona Central and Wilclo South projects. 

Campoona Shaft, located 15km north of Cleve on Eyre Peninsula, South Australia is the most advanced of Archer's Eyre Peninsula Graphite Projects. Initially Archer proposes to develop an open pit mine at Campoona Shaft and a graphite processing facility at Sugarloaf Hill.  

Archer has been granted a Mining Lease for the Campoona Shaft graphite mine and two Miscellaneous Purposes Licences for the processing of graphite and graphene (together the Mining Tenements).  The Mining Tenements were granted pursuant to a Mining lease Application lodged by Archer. Click here to view the Campoona Mining Lease Proposal

What sets Campoona apart from almost all other graphite deposits in the world is its ability to deliver ultra pure, high value, highly crystalline ultra-fine graphite using conventional mechanical cell flotation. This high grade graphite will be upgraded on site  at the Sugarloaf which will also have the ability to manufacture graphene and graphene related products. 

Campoona is located close to infrastructure with existing high voltage power line and gazetted truck routes running through the tenement area (refer to map).
