Troy Grant on Elcora Resources’ graphite to graphene processing technology
January 25, 2016 — In a special InvestorIntel interview, Publisher Tracy Weslosky speaks with Troy Grant, President and CEO for Elcora Resources Corp. (TSXV:ERA | OTCQB:ECORF) about how in a challenging 2015 market, Elcora was up +146.37% for the year. Tracy also asks Troy about the news earlier this month about the graphene quality tests from Singapore, their graphite to graphene processing technology and Elcora’s graphite production.
Tracy Weslosky: You were up over 146.73% last year when all the other stocks were getting pulled by gravity. What can you attribute Elcora’s success to?
Troy Grant: I think a lot of it has to do with the completion of the processing facility. About two years ago we set out milestones that we then executed on and I think the market likes that.
Tracy Weslosky: Well I would definitely have to agree that the market likes you. Speaking of this, you recently had a lovely news release this week about your graphene quality. Now in reading this it looks like you ranked number one for the quality of your graphite flakes. Is that correct?
Troy Grant: Yes. The study was done by NUS, National University of Singapore. They tested over 20 different samples of graphene and we ranked number one in terms of five different tests.

Tracy Weslosky: So let me back up though for just one moment. You have a competitive form of graphite, correct?
Troy Grant: Correct.
Tracy Weslosky: Okay and for those out there that may not understand the graphite market, can you just explain what makes your graphite competitive?
Troy Grant: Well, one thing that gives us a competitive advantage is the purity of it. It allows us to be competitive on the cost side of things. Starting off at 92% to 99% pure it allows the capex/opex of the operation to be very low.
Tracy Weslosky: And of course, I appreciate that Elcora and your team is very excited about your graphene. You have a graphene processing technology too, is that correct?
Troy Grant: Yes….
Tracy Weslosky: This is a very competitive advantage, but I was just trying to explain to our investors that you are one of the few graphite juniors out there that are actually producing, correct?
Troy Grant: Correct.
Tracy Weslosky: Okay, great. So let’s talk about your patent or the technology that you have for the processing graphene.
Troy Grant: On the graphene side of things we looked at it in terms of the graphite side. By controlling the process of the graphite source to the graphene end product it gives us our advantage. That’s where we have the company secret or the trade secret that we use to convert graphite to graphene…to access the complete interview, click here
