There are three major mining sites referred to as No. 1 (Antsirakambo), No. 2 (Marovintsy) and No. 3 (Ambalafotaka) sites, currently only No.1 and No.2 sites are being exploited. In June 2020, the implementation of the new production lines with modernized equipment will be completed, annual production will then be around 80,000 tons in site No.1 and 60,000 tons in site No.2. At that time, the Gallois mine will be the most productive one in the world.
The strategic location of the mine makes logistics very convenient, the site No. 1 is situated only 45 km away from the international port of Tamatave.
We are currently marketing two brands MADA1 and MADA2 so named according to their origin. Since the mine went into operation, Gallois graphite has broadly been used in applications such as refractories, metallurgy, crucibles, sealing materials, brakes, pencils, and so on. As indicated by customers’ test in their production, the MADA1 graphite has natural specialties and high quality beyond comparison: it has a perfect crystalline structure, high density and in ash a very low content ...
of substance unfavorable for purification. It is especially good for manufacturing spherical graphite for lithium battery, expandable graphite, advanced refractories, man-made diamond and high purity graphite for military and aerospace industry. With the development of new technology in carbon industry in recent 20 years, the Gallois graphite has been used in many new applications fields.
After renovation and upgrading, the mine is now entirely computer-managed. We take samples and trace the data all along the production process to guarantee uniform and stable quality in every bag of final product. Whatever the quantity ordered, we can supply customized products to meet specific requirements of customers and ensure the stability and reliability of their raw materials. The graphite, loaded in containers, can be exported to any destination with a transit time ranging from 10-60 days.
Etablissements Gallois S.A. supply natural flake graphite with carbon contents ranging from 80% to 99% and flake sizes of +32mesh, +50 mesh, +80 mesh, +100mesh, +150mesh and -100mesh.
