Green Battery Minerals Inc (CVE:GEM) (OTCMKTS:GBMIF) (FRA:BR2) has hired independent engineering consultant Norda Stelo to carry out an environmental gap analysis (EGA) report on its wholly-owned Berkwood graphite project in Quebec – a key step in the preliminary economic assessment (PEA) process and any potential mining decision.
The study looks at social, economic and environmental considerations, including soil, hydrogeology and groundwater quality and planning of the project management.

Vanessa Viera, a biologist at Norda Stelo, said she believed it would add value to Green Battery because of the prior knowledge of the local environment the Norda Stelo team had obtained during the completion of an Environmental Baseline Study for Mason Graphite’s Lac Gueret property, which is 8 kilometres (km) away.
“We are very pleased to commence our Environmental Gap Analysis report. This is a key step in working towards our PEA as well the getting closer to the decision to mine. I am pleased to be working with Norda Stelo’s team as they did extensive work with our neighbour, Mason Graphite so they are very familiar with the project area already,” said Tom Yingling, the CEO at Green Battery Minerals.
“This should help save time and money and also reconfirms our mission to repeat what Mason has done, just on our side of the claim boundary line that we share with Mason. It also reconfirms Green Battery’s commitment to adhere to strict ESG policies.”
The company noted that three of Norda Stelo’s team had contributed to the Environmental Baseline Study of Mason Graphite’s Lac Gueret project, while Mrs. Vanessa Viera and Catherine Vallières also completed many environmental field surveys in Lac Gueret project study area in 2013.
The Berkwood Graphite East Block consists of 38 claims covering 2,052 hectares prospective for graphite. Green Battery Minerals holds a 100% interest in the property, as well as an option to earn a 100%-interest in the Berkwood Graphite South Block, which consists of 106 claims totaling 5,714 hectares.
The project boasts an NI 43 101 resource of 550,000 tonnes of graphite, which is growing.
