A Critical Graphite Supply Shortage Could Put the Brakes on a Potential $263.3 Billion Electric Vehicle Market(1)
However, Green Battery Minerals (TSXV:GEM)(OTC:GBMIF)(FWB:BR2P) May Have Hit the Jackpot in One of the Best Mining Jurisdictions in the World
The Electric Vehicle Boom is Only Accelerating.
Governments All Over the World Want More of Them on the Roads.(2) Approx. 70% of Americans are Interested in Buying Them.(3)
Auto Maker Factories are Being Overhauled to Produce Electric Cars, Says CNN, and Automakers are “Snapping Up Every Battery They Can Find.”(4)
By 2030, we could see about 250 million of them on roads.(6)
- In the U.S., the government wants to replace its entire fleet of approximately 645,000 vehicles with EVs.(7) Even California Gov. Gavin Newsom recently signed an executive order banning the sale of gas-powered passenger cars in the state starting in 2035.(8)
- In Europe, “Automakers need to sell more electric vehicles after EU lawmakers in December 2018 ordered them to cut CO2 emissions by 40 percent between 2007 and 2021, and then by a further of 38 percent by 2030, or face fines.”(9)
Today, the EV market is worth about $121.8 billion. By 2027, according to Blue Weave Consulting, it could more than double and be worth about $263.3 billion.(1)
But there’s a massive problem…
One that could put the brakes on this potentially massive electric vehicle explosion.
The world is struggling to get its hands on critical elements, such as graphite. Graphite is an essential material used for producing the anode of lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles and energy storage.
This is nothing short of a colossal supply problem.
One so severe, the USGS includes graphite on its list of 35 minerals and metals considered critical to the United States.(11) Graphite is even listed as a critical metal in Canada, and the European Union, as well.
This is why a company like Green Battery Minerals (TSXV:GEM)(OTC:GBMIF)(FWB:BR2P) may save the day. Especially with 70% to 80% of its resource being large to jumbo flake sized in one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world.(12)
After running from a low of about $0.125, the GEM stock gapped to a high of roughly $0.72. This was good for a potential return of almost 376% in just a few weeks. While the graphite stock has since pulled back to about 20 cents, it could see further potential upside thanks to electric vehicle demand and graphite supply-demand issues.
The stock also appears technically oversold on relative strength (RSI), MACD, and Williams’ %R. The last time these technical indicators became over-extended like this in bearish territory, the stock ran from about $0.08 to a high of $0.24 in weeks.
The stock is also displaying bullish indicators including its 20 – 100 Day MACD Oscillator, 20 – 200 Day MACD Oscillator, 50 – 100 Day MACD Oscillator, 50 – 150 Day MACD Oscillator, 50 – 200 Day MACD Oscillator, 150 Day Moving Average, 200 Day Moving Average, and 100 – 200 Day MACD Oscillator.(18)
Green Battery Minerals (formerly Goldcore Resources) is managed by a team with over 150 years of collective experience and a proven track record of not just finding numerous mines but building and operating about 15 of them too. In fact, the Green Battery Mineral management team’s most recent success is discovering its 100% owned Berkwood Graphite resource in Northern Quebec.
The Berkwood Graphite Project is located within the exploration-friendly jurisdiction of Quebec, in the Manicouagan Regional County Municipality, three hours driving time from the city of Baie-Comeau. Easy access is provided via a significant secondary road and numerous tertiary and forest roads that traverse the property.(14)
The Berkwood Graphite Extensions Project directly borders Mason Graphite’s significant Berkwood Graphite Project to the east and south. Mason Graphite’s advanced Berkwood Graphite Project has an NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate with measured and indicated mineral resources of approximately 67.5 million tons grading about 17.2% Cgr (Carbon as Graphite), including nearly 9.7 million tons grading roughly 31.2% Cgr.(14)
Additionally, in February 2021, the company announced it contracted ProGraphite, one of the world’s leading graphite research and development laboratories in Germany, to build several sample lithium-ion batteries using graphite from the company’s Berkwood Graphite deposit.(16)
Plus, Green Battery Metals is also an ESG committed company.
The company’s management team may distinguish it from others looking to enter the mining space. It’s an arduous task to discover mining facilities. It’s even more challenging to build them from the ground up. But for this company, they have expertise and experience in doing all of that from the ground up and have track records that competitors could struggle to keep up with.
