Focus Graphite Inc.

Focus Graphite Inc. signed a Pre-Development Agreement with the Takuaikan Uashat Mak Mani-Utenam Innu (First Nation Band Council), for the Lac Knife Mine Development Project located 30 km south of Fermont, in north-eastern Québec. The intent of ITUM-Focus agreement is to enter into a collaborative relationship in order to better understand the impacts of the project and to incorporate ITUM’s concerns into the Lac Knife mine development project planning. The PDA further lays out the possibility that future negotiations could pave the way to a long-term partnership that would allow for the sustainable development of the project in the region as well as innovative opportunities in the secondary transformation market, all the while working with ITUM to address the community’s social needs and supporting its long term vision and aspirations. Fasken Martineau advised Focus Graphite Inc. with a team that included Frank Mariage, Emilie Bundock and Pierre-Olivier Charlebois
