Exploration - Madagascar - Bass delivers on strategy

Bass Metals has delivered on its strategy to materially expand resources at the Graphmada large flake graphite mine in eastern Madagascar.

Location: Madagascar
Resource: Graphite

This is in parallel with refurbishing the mine to deliver Stage One of 6 000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of the highest quality graphite concentrates using industry best practices. The result is a key step towards providing additional shallow, easily mineable long-term ore feed directly adjacent to the current processing facilities at Graphmada. The Mahefedok Deposit is also a significant part of the Stage Two expansion plans for Graphmada: the installation of a second processing plant to reach 20 000tpa, which will see Bass as one of the largest producers of large flake graphite globally.
