  • Lomiko is in an ideal position to participate in the burgeoning Electric Vehicle market
  • Has the potential to become a North American supplier of graphite materials with La Loutre graphite project located in Quebec, Canada.
  • Graphite is a major and critical material in the manufacture of lithium-ion and other batteries, specifically battery anodes

Vancouver, B.C., July 16, 2019 — July 16, 2019 – Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSX-V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE: DH8C) (Lomiko or the “Company”) has been keenly watching the lithium-ion battery market in anticipation of identifying an opportunity to participate in the supply of materials for electric vehicles with its La Loutre graphite project located in Quebec, Canada.  Lomiko is focused on advancing the La Loutre graphite property and is looking to deliver a NI 43-101 graphite resource based on the success of its recently completed drilling campaign at the Refractory Zone.  This will add to the previously announced 43-101 graphite resource at the adjacent Graphene-Battery zone announced March, 2016.

A. Paul Gill, CEO states, “Lomiko believes that it is in an ideal position to participate in the burgeoning Electric Vehicle market, with the potential to become a North American supplier of graphite materials, a market currently dominated by foreign supply from China. Graphite is a major and critical material in the manufacture of lithium-ion and other batteries, specifically battery anodes”.

According to Benchmark Minerals, graphite anode demand is set to increase from 194,160 tonnes in 2017 to 1,080,360 tonnes by 2023 and 1,747,800 tonnes by 2028. [Source: INN Graphite Investing News]

On February 4, 2019, Simon Moores of Benchmark Mineral Intelligence raised supply and demand concerns in a submission to the US Senate which was echoed by Energy and Natural Resource Committee Chair Senator Lisa Murkowski in a February 5, 2019 News Release: “In contrast to the energy sector, our nation is headed in the wrong direction on mineral imports. This is our Achilles’ heel that serves to empower and enrich other nations, while costing us jobs and international competitiveness,” Murkowski said. Lomiko brought this crucial opportunity to the attention of shareholders in a February 8, 2019

Recent announcements and cooperation agreements on electric vehicle and self-driving cars between Ford and Volkswagen indicate automakers are taking action to put millions of electric vehicles on the road.  Raw material demand for graphite, lithium and nickel sourced from North American is likely to increase as a result. Ford said its battery electric vehicle rollout will start in 2020 with a performance utility, and it plans to launch 16 battery electric vehicles by 2022.

In other positive developments, Quebec Premier Francois Legault reiterated his commitment to make the Province the ‘Green Battery’ of North America through investments in electric buses and trams while British Columbia Premier John Horgan aims to eliminate all gas-powered cars by 2040.

  • Results from the remaining 16 exploration diamond drill holes from the 2019 program at the Refractory Zone of the La Loutre graphite project
  • The strike length of the mineralization is estimated at 900 m in the NW-SE direction and is open in both directions.  A detailed interpretation of the results will be carried out to better estimate the thickness and strike length of the mineralized zone.
  • Next Step is to establish new resource estimate for the entire project including the 36 new drill holes completed since the 2016 resource estimate.

Vancouver, B.C. and Montreal, Que, July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSX-V:LMR, OTC:LMRMF, FSE:DH8C) (Lomiko  or the “Company”) and Quebec Precious Metals Corporation (TSX.V:CJC, FSE:YXEP, OTC-BB:CJCFF) (“QPM”) are pleased to announce the results from the remaining 16 exploration diamond drill holes received from the 2019 program (see Table 1 below, and Figure 1) at the Refractory Zone of the La Loutre graphite project (the  “Project”). A total of 21 holes were completed on the Refractory Zone for a total of 2,985 metres.  The Project is owned by Lomiko (80%) and QPM (20%).

 â€œLa Loutre has proven to be a large and high-grade area worthy of further investment.” stated A.  Paul Gill, CEO. “The only operating graphite mine in North America is the Imerys Graphite & Carbon at Lac-des-ÃŽles, 53 km northwest of La Loutre which reported Proven reserves of 5.2 M Tonnes at a grade of 7.42 % Cg in July 1988 before the start of production.” (reference: Potentiel de la minéralisation en graphite au Québec, N’Golo Togola, MERN, page 31, Conférence Québec Mines, November 24 2016).

Although the current focus is on the Refractory Zone, the Project was also subject of an independent technical report in accordance with NI 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, prepared by B. Turcotte and G. Servelle of InnovExplo Inc. from Val-d’Or, Québec, and O. Peters, of AGP Mining Inc., dated March 24,  2016, filed for the Project’s Graphene-Battery Zone. The report presented a mineral resource estimate of 18.4 M Tonnes at a grade of 3.19% carbon flake graphite (“Cg”) in the Indicated category and 16.7 M Tonnes at 3.75% Cg in the Inferred category using a cut-off of 1.5% Cg.

The above-noted 2016 mineral resource does not include the current results or the intercepts from the Refractory Zone in 2016 which were as follows:

LL-16-01 – 7.74% Cg over 135.60 m including 16.81% Cg over 44.10 m

LL-16-02 – 17.08% Cg over 22.30 m and 14.80% Cg over 15.10 m

LL-16-03 – 14.56% Cg over 110.80 m

The next task is to complete a new resource estimate in compliance with NI 43-101 for the entire Project including the 36 new drill holes completed since the above-mentioned 2016 resource estimate.

* Results announced in May 6, 2019 press release.

** Results announced in April 24, 2019 press release.

 On the basis of the available geophysical and 2016 drilling data, the strike length of the mineralization is estimated at 900 m in the NW-SE direction and is open in both directions.  A detailed interpretation of the results will be carried out to better estimate the thickness and strike length of the mineralized zone.

The Project consists of contiguous claim blocks totaling 29 km2 situated approximately 53 km NW of the Lac-des-Îles mine, formerly known as the Timcal mine, North America’s only operating graphite mine. It is accessible by driving NW from Montreal for a distance of approximately 170 kilometres.

 The 2019 exploration program is managed by Consul-Teck Exploration Minière Inc. (“Consul- Teck”) of Val-d’Or, Quebec, who designed the drilling campaign, supervised the program and logged and sampled the core.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Consul-Teck implemented QA/QC procedures to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis of the core samples. The drill core was logged and then split, with one half sent for assay and the other retained in the core box as a witness sample. Duplicates and blanks were inserted at a regular interval into the sample stream.

 The samples in secure tagged bags were delivered directly to the analytical facility for analysis. In this case, the analytical facility was the ALS Minerals laboratory facility in Val-d’Or, Quebec. The  samples are weighed and identified prior to sample preparation. The samples are crushed to 70% minus 2 mm, then separated and pulverized to 85% passing 75µm. All samples are analyzed for Cg using the C-IR18 method.

Lomiko $LMR.ca Praises B.C. Law to Increase Sales of Zero Emission Vehicles $DNI.ca $CJC.ca $SRG.ca $NGC.ca $LLG.ca $GPH.ca $NOU.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 11:22 AM on Friday, May 31st, 2019

(Vancouver, B.C.) Lomiko Metals (TSXV: LMR, OTCQB: LMRMF FSE: DH8C) has received welcome news from the provincial governments of Quebec and B.C. this week just as gas prices reach all-time highs.  With new incentives for the purchase of Electric Vehicles, it may propel new car buyers to electric vehicles.  The B.C. government is counting on this and will require all new vehicles sold in the province to be zero-emission by 2040. The plan will be phased in over time, with new legislation mandating that 10 percent of new light-duty vehicle sales be zero-emission by 2025 and 30 percent by 2030.

“With the advent of incentives to purchase Electric Vehicles, and green project funding in Quebec, Canada will not only meet but exceed carbon target.  Surely, the target of 10% zero-emission vehicles by 2025 can be acheived.” said A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals Inc.

Zero-emission versions of top-selling models, like the Ford F-150, are still not available. There are also concerns about the impact of cold weather on battery life, the number of charging stations, and the cost of zero-emission vehicles relative to gas vehicles.

The drill campaign focuses on the Refractory Zone. An independent technical report in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, prepared by B. Turcotte and G. Servelle of InnovExplo Inc. from Val-d’Or, Québec, and O. Peters, of AGP Mining Inc., dated March 24, 2016, was filed for the Project’s Graphene-Battery Zone. The report presented a mineral resource estimate of 18.4 M Tonnes at a grade of 3.19% carbon flake graphite (“Cg”) in the Indicated category and 16.7 M Tonnes at 3.75% Cg in the Inferred category using a cut-off of 1.5% Cg. The Project also includes several untested anomalies.

On the basis of the available geophysical and 2016 drilling data, the strike length of the mineralization is estimated at 900 m in the NW-SE direction and is open in both directions. A detailed interpretation of the results will be carried out to better estimate the thickness and strike length of the mineralized zone.

The Project consists of contiguous claim blocks totaling 29 km2 situated approximately 53 km E of Imerys Carbon & Graphite, formerly known as the Timcal graphite mine, North America’s only operating graphite mine, and located 117 km NW of Montreal. The mine has reported grades of 7.46% Cg over its 22-year life.

The 2019 exploration program is managed by Consul-Teck Exploration of Val-d’Or, Quebec, who designed the drilling campaign, supervised the program and logged and sampled the core.
