Hexagon Energy Materials Limited (ASX:HXG) is an Australian company focused on resources, energy materials, and clean energy. Hexagon is currently exploring at its two wholly-owned assets in Western Australia, the Halls Creek and McIntosh Projects, prospective for gold, nickel, PGEs and graphite.
Hexagon holds major graphite resources and has cultivated strong relationships with a number of important graphite processing companies in North America, where there is a strong focus on supply chain diversity and ensuring that key strategic minerals are sourced and processed within the US or through allied nations. With China controlling 100% of global graphite battery anode production, there is a clear strategic necessity to increase supply chain diversity in the global energy materials processing sector.
Hexagon is also actively seeking ways to progress value-added businesses that are consistent with its strategy, skill set, and focus on clean energy. The company is currently assessing new opportunities in the space while continuing to develop its highly prospective exploration assets.
