After two years of work on sales agreements, the Company has signed four, three-year firm off-take agreements for a total of 89,000t over that period. These agreements represent approximately 60% of the Company's anticipated production over that period. Our clients operate in various markets including refractories, expandable graphite and battery anode material. We remain actively engaged with several potential clients to continue to sign off-take agreements for our graphite production.
Our efforts in continuously producing graphite from our lab in Guinea and producing a bulk sample is in line with these efforts to secure sales. The Company continues to believe in signing sales agreements for the anticipated production and having many potential clients test and qualify our material. These efforts will remain ongoing throughout the life of the Project.

We are diligently proceeding towards achieving our ultimate goal of building a mine and concentrator capable of producing 54,000tpa of high-quality graphite flakes, in best possible timeframe, and in the best interest of all our stakeholders," said Ugo Landry-Tolszczuk, President and COO of SRG Mining.
