NGX Limited overview

Mining company Sovereign Metals ($SVM) has spun out its four graphite assets into a new business called NGX Limited. Now that the demerger is complete, NGX has been listed on the ASX. 

Sovereign intends to focus on developing their flagship Kasiya Rutile Project, a large deposit of the mineral used to create titanium. NGX will progress several of the graphite projects in Malawi. 

Their most advanced prospect is the Malingunde Project, which is located only about 20 km southwest of the capital city of Lilongwe. It has a resource of 65 million tonnes (mt) with 7.2% total graphitic carbon (TGC), which means it likely contains 4.68mt of graphite. 

A pre-feasibility study that outlines potential plans to develop a mine was last updated in 2021. They are currently waiting for a mining licence to be approved, depending on the acceptance of their environmental and social impact study for the project. 

The Duwi Project lies approximately 15 km east of Lilongwe. Previous work has established a resource of 85.9 mt and TGC content to be estimated at 7.1%. Transferring the legal title of this asset to NGX is awaiting ministerial approval. 

They have two earlier stage projects in the country. Nanzeka is nearly 60 km north of Lilongwe, a landholding with limited sampling and drilling to date. The Mabuwa Project is 60 km south of second major city Blantyre and there’s been no previous exploration work at the site. 

Graphite’s use in EV batteries will drive future demand for the material. Only time will tell whether NGX can emulate the successes of graphite mines in the neighbouring countries of Tanzania and Mozambique.
