VancouverSun reported graphite is the element to watch in the junior exploration market.
As quoted in the market news:
By now you’ve heard the buzz: graphite is the next hot resource stock. But why should investors care about this mineral that has gone largely ignored by the stock market since the mid 1980s?
The answer lies in a compelling story of supply and demand, and a future that looks to prove heavily reliant on the new industrial applications and green technologies that graphite is an integral part of. From a skyrocketing demand for lithium-ion batteries to the futuristic promises of graphene, the graphite market is one of the most closely watched in the junior exploration industry.
