  • Karl brings to the Board his unique experiences in building and operating some of the most profitable graphite mines in the Western World.

Gratomic Inc. (“GRAT” or the “Company”) (TSX.V:GRAT)(OTCQB:CBULF)(FRANKFURT:CB82)(WKN:A143MR) announces the appointment of Karl Trudeau as a Director of the Company and Head of Namibian Operations.

Karl brings to the Board his unique experiences in building and operating some of the most profitable graphite mines in the Western World. Working for Imerys Graphite et Carbonne, he operated and optimized the Lac-Des-Îles graphite mine to become the most profitable mining operation in Quebec in 2014. An additional significant milestone was achieved with Imerys, through his role as Natural Graphite Operations Leader, where Karl was responsible for the construction and development of the Okanjande Graphite Mine in Namibia, Africa.

As the COO of Nouveau Monde Graphite, Karl made important contributions to the project including his work as a pioneer in the electrification of mining operations. As the world is changing, Gratomic will be a focused leader in making the necessary and important change of establishing carbon neutral operations. Karl brings with him the knowledge from previous projects, which will assist in making the Company’s Aukam Graphite Project a carbon neutral operation.

The strength of established working relationships on previous projects with Armando Farhate and Andre Bennet and having a strong track record of delivering to plan will be a key contributing factor to the success of the Aukam Graphite Project.

“I had the privilege of working directly with Karl in other Graphite projects and having him side by side at the Board of Directors of Gratomic will ensure we continue to improve our governance level,” said Armando Farhate, COO & Head of Graphite Marketing and Sales.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am very pleased to welcome Karl to the Board. This step solidifies his role with the Company and represents a harbinger of the success to come in Gratomic’s future,” said Arno Brand, President & CEO of Gratomic Inc.

The appointment of Karl Trudeau as a director is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
