Organization [Abstract]  



Next Graphite, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Nevada on September 26, 2012 under the name Zewar Jewellery, Inc. and is a development-stage entity. The Company’s current business plan is to engage in the mining business developing graphite properties located in Namibia. The Company is based in Carson City, Nevada.


On November 14, 2013, the Company consummated transactions pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Share Exchange Agreement”) dated November 14, 2013 by and among the Company and the stockholders of African Graphite, Inc., a private Nevada corporation (“AGI” and the “AGI Stockholders”) whereby AGI Stockholders transferred 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of AGI held by them, in exchange for an aggregate of 8,980,047 newly issued shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”).


On November 14, 2013, AGI entered into a Stock Purchase Option Agreement (the “Option Agreement”) with NMC Corp., a corporation organized under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada (“NMC”), whereby NMC granted to AGI an option to purchase 90 ordinary shares, par value one Namibian dollar per share, of Gazania Investments Two Hundred and Forty Two (Proprietary) Limited, a corporation organized under the laws of the Republic of Namibia (“Gazania”), representing 90% of the issued and outstanding shares of Gazania, for $240,000. NMC had entered into an option agreement dated March 29, 2013, as amended on November 4, 2013 (the “Centre Agreement”), with Centre for Geoscience Research CC (formerly known as “Industrial Minerals and Rock Research Centre CC”), a company organized under the laws of the Republic of Namibia (“Centre”), whereby Centre agreed to transfer to Gazania 100% undivided interest in the exclusive prospecting license No. 3895 known as AUKAM originally issued to Centre by the government of the Republic of Namibia on April 4, 2011 and renewed on April 4, 2013 (the “License”). The License grants the right to conduct prospecting operations, bulk sampling and pilot production in the license area called AUKAM located in southern Namibia in the Karas Region within the Betaine district. The license area covers about 49,127 hectares. The only mine in Namibia which has produced graphite is situated in the license area. The transfer of the License to Gazania was approved by the Ministry of Mines and Energy of the Republic of Namibia on February 25, 2014.


Under the Option Agreement, AGI was required to pay to NMC $90,000 as an advance payment to be credited towards the purchase price of the Gazania shares. The Company made the advance payment on November 14, 2013. The balance of the purchase price in the amount of $150,000 was paid by AGI upon exercise of the option that was completed on March 14, 2014. As a result, Gazania became a direct 90% owned subsidiary of the Company.


The Company acquired the remaining 10% ownership of Gazania for $15,000 in the third quarter of 2015. As a result, Gazania became a direct 100% owned subsidiary of the Company.
