NextSource Materials Inc. Expands Registered Trademark of SuperFlake® Graphite to Japan

Del

TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NextSource Materials Inc. (TSX:NEXT) (OTCQB:NSRCF) ("NextSource" or "the Company"), is pleased to announce that it has successfully registered SuperFlake® as a trademark in Japan.

The registration of the SuperFlake® trademark means that NextSource now has the exclusive right to use this trademark on all natural graphite sold in Japan that it produces from its Molo Graphite Project in Madagascar.

NextSource now has registered trademark status of SuperFlake® graphite in Japan and the entire European Union, which NextSource was awarded back in August 2017. The Company also applied for and is expecting to be awarded the exclusive right to use SuperFlake® in Canada, the United States, and South Korea.  These key jurisdictions represent the top demand markets for flake graphite and the locations where NextSource intends to sell its SuperFlake® graphite concentrate.

High Quality Graphite Concentrate

As detailed in the June 2017 Feasibility Study, NextSource's SuperFlake® graphite concentrate can achieve 98% carbon (C) purity with simple flotation, has excellent thermal expansion, can be easily upgraded to 99.97% purity (battery grade) and contains no deleterious substances. The Company's SuperFlake® graphite concentrate also has excellent flake size distribution that is well above the global average, with 46.4 percent being classified as +80 (large), +65 (extra large) and +48 (jumbo) mesh in flake size. Specifically 23.6 percent of SuperFlake® graphite concentrate is +48 mesh and greater in size.

The timing of this trademark registration in Europe coincides well with the Company's planned Phase 1 production, which is targeted for late 2018 subject to project financing.  Phase 1 will consist of a fully operational and sustainable graphite mine with a permanent processing plant capable of producing approximately 17,000 tonnes per annum ("tpa") of high-quality SuperFlake® graphite concentrate per year over a mine life of 30 years.

Mine Development Plans

As announced in the Company's June 2017 Feasibility Study, Phase I of the Molo Project will be a full-scale mine with a production rate of 17,000 tonnes per annum ("tpa") of SuperFlake® graphite concentrate and with a mine life exceeding 30 years. The mine capital cost is estimated at US$18.4 million and with a build time of 9 months. Phase I production is currently targeted for late 2018 and is subject to mine financing. Phase II of the Molo mine will consist of an expansion to over 51,000 tpa and will be implemented as soon as market demand supports such an expansion.

Due to NextSource using a unique, fully-modular build approach, the Molo Project will have the lowest capital cost of any proposed or competing Feasibility-stage graphite mine. The Molo Project is also verified to have one of the lowest operating costs in the industry, based on a full-cost CIF-basis.
