Lomiko’s Cash and Investments Value Almost Exceed Its Market Cap

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 20, 2014 — Even though graphite companies have been ever increasing blips on investors’ radar screens over the past couple of years, the space got a massive visibility and validation boost when the already iconic Tesla Motors announced its planned lithium ion battery gigafactory to be completed by 2017 to support the demand for its new Tesla Model S. It’s partnering with Panasonic and initiatives by rival behemoths such as Samsung and others will undoubtedly add to the interest both for graphite and tech derivative graphene.

Without reciting readily available facts, the bottom line is that Tesla is projected to use 30k tons of battery grade spherical graphite derived from 102k tons of feedstock. At the moment, only 80k tons of the high-grade natural flake mineral necessary is being produced annually. And given that the cost per ton of synthetic graphite is roughly double that of natural flake, the future growth may well belong to the latter as more mines come on-stream.

“Investors need to understand that the impressive growth will ultimately come from graphite/graphene technology applications such as 3D printing,” stated A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals (TSX-V:LMR) (OTCQX:LMRMF) (FRANKFURT:DH8B). “Lomiko not only has first class mineral properties, but also intends to be an incubator of graphene technologies. The recent successful market debut of Graphene 3D Labs, of which LMR owns 11.23% or 4.4 million shares, has been a solid proof of concept that our aggressive plans to seek out the best opportunities deliver exceptional shareholder value.”

Considering there are more than 11,000 plus patents or patents pending for graphene technologies, the story just gets more compelling. Large companies such as General Electric and Lockheed-Martin and have also confirmed their interest in utilizing graphene technologies.

Credit Suisse forecasts that global 3D printing market revenues will reach almost $12 billion by 2020; it came in just over $2 billion in 2012. That represents annual growth of 20-30%. The retail consumer/small business market shows the largest growth potential with 100%+ year over year growth in 2013.

While financing for all companies is tough at the moment, LMR closed a $5.5 million financing in March 2014. As well, over the last nine months, the Company’s 100 % subsidiary, Lomiko Technologies, invested $350,000 for a stake in (with Graphene Labs) spinoff Graphene 3D Labs for a final ownership total of approximately 4.4 million shares.

GGG began trading on Aug 11th, 2014, and the shares rapidly hit $1.22 a share on Aug 13 2014, a rise of more than 800% on impressive volumes. The shares currently trade at about $0.95, evidencing the ongoing investor interest. For Lomiko, the collective math of the value of its stake following the GGG debut and recent financing should impress investors. Lomiko’s current market cap is a modest $10.25 million.

At $0.075 a share, investors in Lomiko are basically buying the cash and Graphene 3D Lab stake and getting the rest of the assets as a bonus.

Over and above the fact that Gill is a font of knowledge on all things graphite, graphene and the related technologies and applications, the way he has structured Lomiko is unique among peers. Is LMR a graphite miner? A tech company? An advocate for the economics and sustainability of natural flake graphite and graphene applications?

Yes.

Anyone who has linked to Gill or Lomiko on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or signed up for news directly from the Company will never have to wade through pedestrian information, but the latest and most relevant developments in the space. Given how fast moving developments are, investors who want to keep abreast should find LMR not only a great potential investment, but also an indispensable information resource.

Graphene 3D Labs has proprietary technology which management believes has the potential to bring 3D printing to the next stage of commercial development and create new markets. The company has two US patent applications pending for its technology.

Nobel Laureate Andre Geim discovered graphene in 2004. Simply put by Geim in a 2013 CNN interview:

Because of its range of extraordinary properties, people are considering using graphene in a myriad of different applications. For example, because graphene is so strong, people want to use it to reinforce plastics, making them conductive at the same time. Because it’s transparent and conducts electricity, people want to use it in applications like mobile phone screens, touch screens, TV screens and so on. People are also considering using it to go beyond silicon technology and make our integrated circuits even denser and speedier. Those are just few examples.

While the applications in 3D printing are impressive, there are several multi-billion dollar industries that will benefit from this alliance including the medical appliance market, biotech and super capacitors. RFID, smart packaging, ITO replacement, sensors, logic and memory are also areas where graphene will likely see exceptional growth.

Lomiko’s flagship property, the 3824 hectare Quatre Milles in Quebec continues to move ahead. The eastern portion has already been drilled. The exciting part is what was found in the West Claim Block in the July 2014 survey; 88 magnetic anomalies with no less than 23 high priority targets. These represent by far the best potential within the property, displaying the same size as the eastern anomalies but larger in number of targets. Since the Company can’t ignore the impressive potential of these findings, drilling is being stepped up within the 2014 plan. Lomiko’s cash position will fund the development.

If you want a pure graphite mining play there are lots of candidates. If you want one that is already diversifying revenue streams, positioning itself at the leading technology edge of this burgeoning space and can be had for what seems to be a ridiculously low price, kick Lomiko’s tires.

Lomiko trades at $0.06 with a market cap of $8.2 million.

Lomiko Announces Discovery of 23 New High Priority Magnetic Anomalies at Quatre Milles Flake Graphite Property

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:13 AM on Monday, July 14th, 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Jul 14, 2014) – LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX VENTURE:LMR)(PINKSHEETS:LMRMF)(FRANKFURT:DH8B) (the “Company”) reports Consul-Teck of Val-d’Or and consulting firm Dubé & Desaulniers conducted a combined Magnetic and Very Low Frequency Electro-Magnetic (VLF-EM) survey on the West Block of the Quatre Milles Project for a total of 209.6 linear km. The survey is part of an extensive and comprehensive exploration plan at Quatre Milles for the 2014 season.

The goal of the program is to identify high grade, near surface graphite mineralization suitable for conversion to battery-grade graphite. The graphite industry could see exponential growth based on new demand for lithium-ion batteries which use 10 to 15 times as much graphite as lithium.

Telsa Motor Cars announced, “As we at Tesla reach for our goal of producing a mass market electric car in approximately three years, we have an opportunity to leverage our projected demand for lithium ion batteries to reduce their cost faster than previously thought possible.”

Lomiko is also an investor in Graphene 3D Lab as of November 22, 2013 which aims to pioneer the manufacturing of electronic devices using graphene 3D printing filament and graphene printers. Currently, there are 11,000 patented or patent-pending graphene technologies which will require graphene material. Large companies such as General Electric, Lockheed-Martin and Samsung have confirmed their interest in Graphene uses. The graphite industry may see increased demand as a base material for the production of graphene. Lomiko will be able to participate in this new demand due to initial test results September 17, 2013 indicating graphite from Quatre Milles was converted to graphene oxide.

Previously reported drill results at Quatre Milles indicate extensive mineralization in the region. The Quatre Milles Project NI 43-101 Technical Report with all Phase I and historical drill hole results is available on the Lomiko web site. On March 13, 2014, Lomiko closed a financing for $ 5.5 million for the purposes of advancing the Quatre Milles Property and investing in technology.

In total, 88 VLF-EM conductors axis were identified. Of those, 23 new conductors are prioritized for further review. Conductors that are associated to magnetic anomalies are likely caused by pyrrhotite rich sulphide occurrences. However, most of the conductors do not show correlation with the magnetic signal and the strongest VLF-EM anomalies are thus possibly caused by graphite mineralization.

Lomiko will initially investigate the outlined anomalies by basic prospecting methods and follow-up with drilling at identified graphite zones. Strong magnetic anomalies that are not responding to the VLF-EM method also deserve further investigation. Sources identified as promising for mineralization discoveries could then be the object of resistivity/IP surveys that can be efficiently used to penetrate the ground at further depth and better image the geometry of conductive and chargeable sources.

Lomiko Receives TSX Venture Approval to Invest $300,000 in Graphene 3D Lab Reverse Takeover

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:19 PM on Friday, May 16th, 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(May 16, 2014) – LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX VENTURE:LMR)(PINKSHEETS:LMRMF)(FRANKFURT:DH8B)(Europe: ISIN: CA54163Q1028, WKN: A0Q9W7,) (the “Company”) announces that it has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to invest, through its wholly owned subsidiary, $300,000 in a private placement at .25 for 1,200,000 shares of Matnic Resources Inc. (“Matnic”), a public company that trades on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE:MIK). The transaction is subject to Matnic receiving regulatory approval to a reverse takeover (“RTO”) by Graphene 3D Lab (“Graphene 3D”).

In addition, Lomiko has created the new 100% owned subsidiary, Lomiko Technologies Inc. (“Lomiko Tech”). The above investment will be done through Lomiko Tech and will only proceed if the RTO receives the approval of the Exchange. This transaction is further to the Company’s investment in Graphene 3D, as approved by the Exchange on December 3, 2013. The Company made a $50,000 investment for a 15% interest and was issued 250,000 Series “A” Preferred stock of Graphene 3D. If the RTO is successful, Lomiko will exchange its 250,000 shares of Graphene 3D to shares in the newly formed graphene entity created through the RTO.

“This is an exciting time for graphene and 3D printing companies with large multi-nationals such as Imerys, Samsung and General Electric entering the market.” stated A. Paul Gill, CEO, “Lomiko Technologies allows Lomiko to invest in the future of 3D printing and graphene while Lomiko Metals works toward a 43-101 graphite resource in the near term.”

On September 17, 2013, Lomiko and Graphene Labs reported that in the first step of the conversion process of graphite to graphene, natural graphite flakes were oxidized and turned into Graphene Oxide (“GO”) by a modified Hummer’s method. The properties of graphene, including its high conductivity, mechanical strength, and high specific surface area, make it an ideal electrode material.

On January 20, 2014 Graphene 3D Lab reached a significant milestone by filing a provisional patent application for the use of graphene-enhanced material, along with other materials, in 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing).

Additive Manufacturing is the process of creating a three-dimensional, solid object from a digital file, of virtually any shape. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, whereas successive layers of material are laid down and create different shapes.

Adding graphene to polymers which are conventionally used in 3D printing improves the properties of the polymer in many different ways; it improves the polymers mechanical strength as well as its electrical and thermal conductivity. The method described in the provisional patent application allows consumers to use the polymer, infused with graphene, together with conventional polymers in the same printing process, thereby fabricating functional electronic devices using 3D printing.

New developments in 3D printing will allow for the creation of products with different components, such as printed electronic circuits, sensors, or batteries to be manufactured. 3D Printing is a new and promising manufacturing technology that has garnered much interest, growing from uses in prototyping to everyday products. Today, it is a billion dollar industry growing at a brisk pace

Lomiko Takes on Multi-Billion Dollar 3D Printing and Graphene Goliaths

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:17 AM on Monday, February 3rd, 2014

VANCOUVER, British Columbia,  Feb. 3, 2014 — If graphene isn’t in your investment  lexicon, adopt it now, because its growth includes all things electronic  and won’t wait for you to catch up.

Familiarizing yourself with the revolutionary properties of this  graphite derivative would likely give you a leg up when considering your   investment choices. Graphene can and will be found in our most valued possessions from cell phones, to potentially life changing technology  such as 3D printing and yes, even the electric battery in a Tesla  Roadster.

“Graphene is basically a one-atom thick layer of carbon. Under a  microscope, it looks like a honeycombed lattice—much like chicken wire,”   states A. Paul Gill, President and CEO of Lomiko Metals (TSX-V:LMR), a   Company that extracts high quality graphite from its Quatre Mille  property in Quebec. “The growth of graphene use in virtually every  electronic application will undoubtedly be a catalyst of change across  the board, both in R&D and production.”

Mr. Gill, more than just a mining executive, recognized another Company  engaged in the rapidly growing graphene marketplace; New York based,  Graphene Labs, a leading manufacturer and supplier to global R&D  markets. The Company also holds many graphene patents but of particular  importance is the patent to convert graphite to graphene recently  announced in an exclusive agreement between the two Companies.

Together the two Companies will capitalize on the secure supply of high  quality graphite provided by Lomiko, as well as the extensive customer  database and expertise in graphene materials of Graphene Labs. This  alliance is where the possibilities become almost limitless.

Graphene Labs holds patents on 3D printing technologies that could very  well change the way we all live and purchase products. 3D printing is  the process of creating a three-dimensional, solid object from a digital  file of virtually any shape, using an additive process. Eventually this  will allow you to print everything from a toothbrush to a carburetor  for your car, in your basement.

Lomiko is also not standing still. Gill states: ‘As exclusive supplier  of high purity, large flake crystalline graphite from our Quatre Milles  East Property in Quebec, we are rapidly expanding this relationship with  Graphene 3D Labs as part of our recently filed Public Offering and  concurrent Private Placement. Once completed, Lomiko should realize  approximately $4 million.’

Credit Suisse forecasts that global 3D printing market revenues will reach almost $12 billion by 2020; they came in just over $2 billion in 2012. That represents annual growth of 20-30%. The retail consumer/small  business market shows the largest growth potential with 100%+ year over  year growth in 2013.

Nasdaq listed CVD Equipment, which has a Market Capitalization of $ 81  million and a share price of over $ 13.00 USD joins 3D Systems Corp, XG  Sciences and other large companies vying for this new market.

Adding graphene to polymers which are conventionally used in 3D  printing enhances the properties of the polymer in many different ways; it improves the mechanical strength as well as its electrical and  thermal conductivity. The method described in the provisional patent  application allows consumers to use the polymer, infused with graphene, together with conventional polymers in the same printing process,  thereby fabricating functional electronic devices.

China supplies 70% of the world graphite market, made up of 60%  amorphous and 40% flake. Demand has increased roughly 5% in the last 10 years to about $12 billion in 2011. There are 15 grams of graphite in a   smartphone battery. The Lithium Ion battery market is also a huge  consumer of graphite, needing 10-20 times the amount of a standard  lithium battery. There are 110 Kg of graphite in the battery of a Tesla Roadster. Lithium Ion batteries are projected to generate revenues of  $60 billion by 2020. I imagine you get the point.

While the applications in 3D printing are impressive, there are several  multi-billion dollar industries that will benefit from this alliance  including the medical appliance market, biotech and super capacitors.  RFID, smart packaging, ITO replacement, sensors, logic and memory are  also areas where graphene will likely see exceptional growth.

None of this works of course without graphite, particularly the high quality/purity flake graphite mined by Lomiko. Coupled with the  technical and market expertise and global top-tier customer base of  Graphene Labs, the Company’s revenue growth looks solid and sustainable.

Visit the Lomiko Booth and Learn About 3D Printing at the World Outlook Conference January 31 and February 1, 2014

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:15 AM on Monday, January 27th, 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and NEW YORK, NEW YORK–(Jan. 27, 2014) – LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX VENTURE:LMR)(PINKSHEETS:LMRMF)(FRANKFURT:DH8B)(Europe: ISIN: CA54163Q1028, WKN: A0Q9W7,) (the “Company”) invite investors to learn about 3d printing at the World Outlook Conference. Lomiko partner Graphene 3D Lab has reached a significant milestone by filing a provisional patent application for the use of graphene-enhanced material, along with other materials, in 3D Printing. 3D printing or additive manufacturing is the process of creating a three-dimensional, solid object from a digital file, of virtually any shape. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, whereas successive layers of material are laid down and create different shapes.

A few months ago, legendary analyst Jim Dines repeated his prediction that 3D printing is the next really big thing for investors. This year’s conference will give you a chance to see it in action. 3D printing expert John Biehler will demonstrate 3D printers that you can use in your own home to manufacture a variety of items. John will talk about the economic and social economics of this revolution, impacting not just traditional manufacturing and retailing but also regenerative medicine and industrial design.

“We are unequivocal in stating that investors must get familiar with these areas. The World Outlook Financial Conference is your chance to not only hear renowned analysts like Martin Armstrong, Mark Lebovit, Peter Grandich and to get Ryan Irvine’s 2014 World Outlook Small Cap Portfolio. It is also an opportunity to get familiar with the most important investment opportunities of the next generation”, Nina Parente, World Outlook Conference Organizer.

“Lomiko will provide graphite to Graphene 3D Lab as the exclusive supplier,” stated Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals. “Novel materials based on graphene open new markets for natural graphite; these new markets are expanding at an extraordinary rate. We are happy to participate in the development of this disruptive technology.”

On September 17, 2013, Lomiko and Graphene Labs reported that in the first step of the conversion process of graphite to graphene, natural graphite flakes were oxidized and turned into Graphene Oxide (“GO”) by a modified Hummer’s method. The properties of graphene, including its high conductivity, mechanical strength, and high specific surface area, make it an ideal electrode material.

Adding graphene to polymers which are conventionally used in 3D printing improves the properties of the polymer in many different ways; it improves the polymers mechanical strength as well as its electrical and thermal conductivity. The method described in the provisional patent application allows consumers to use the polymer, infused with graphene, together with conventional polymers in the same printing process, thereby fabricating functional electronic devices using 3D printing.

New developments in 3D printing will allow for the creation of products with different components, such as printed electronic circuits, sensors, or batteries to be manufactured. 3D Printing is a new and promising manufacturing technology that has garnered much interest, growing from uses in prototyping to everyday products. Today, it is a billion dollar industry growing at a brisk pace.
