Posted by AGORACOM at 9:04 AM on Tuesday, November 17th, 2020

Vancouver, B.C., Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lomiko Metals Inc. (“Lomiko”) (TSX-V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE: DH8C) is focused on the exploration and development of flake graphite in Quebec for the new green economy.  Lomiko is pleased to announce the Board of Directors has formed a Technical, Safety, and Sustainability Committee (“LTSSC”), reporting to the Board of Directors.  At the time of formation, the LTSCC is comprised of A. Paul Gill, CEO, and two Independent Directors, Gabriel Erdelyi and Julius Galik.

LTSSC Committee Responsibilities

The LTSSC will oversee the assessment of the La Loutre Flake Graphite Property, and liaise with service providers, technical staff and stakeholders to put forward a series of crucial technical documents including, but not limited to, a Scope of Work (SOW), Graphite Characterization and Metallurgy, Response for Proposal (RFP) on a Preliminary Economic Assessment, and, if required, pre-feasibility, bulk samples, pilot plant, feasibility and construction plans.  The Committee will govern the hiring of technical staff, liaise with extra-company agencies and representatives, and provide a conduit to the Board of Directors to make crucial decisions on the project.

Further additions to the Committee and the Lomiko team are anticipated and will be announced when confirmed.

Lomiko’s Near Term Goals

Graphite demand is expected to increase exponentially for the mined natural graphite material, as more is used in the production of spherical graphite for graphite in the anode portion of Electric Vehicle Lithium-ion batteries.

Lomiko completed a $ 750,000 financing October 23, 2020 and plans to work on its near-term goals:

1) Complete 100% Acquisition of the Property, currently 80% owned by Lomiko Metals.

2) Complete metallurgy and graphite characterization to confirm li-ion anode grade material.

3) Complete a Technical Report to confirm that the extent of the mineralization equals or surpasses the nearby Imerys Mine, owned by an international mining conglomerate.

A “technical report” means a report prepared and filed in accordance with this Instrument and Form 43-101F1 Technical Report, and includes, in summary form, all material scientific and technical information in respect of the subject property as of the effective date of the technical report;

4) Complete Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA)

A PEA means a study, other than a pre-feasibility or feasibility study, that includes an economic analysis of the potential viability of mineral resources.

  • GM and Honda will mutually produce two new electric vehicles ready for 2024, the latest move by both the automakers to develop their current partnership.

Who Will Create What 

Following the Plan, the automakers will concentrate on their particular fields of expertise. 

Honda will create the exterior and interiors of the latest electric vehicles; GM will provide its new electric vehicle construction and Ultium batteries. 

This latest architecture, which GM revealed last month to showcase its EV plans, is competent of 19 distinctive battery and drive-unit configurations. 

The architecture involves large-format sack battery cells produced as part of a mutual venture among LG Chem and GM.

The vehicles that will have a Honda nameplate will include GM’s OnStar security and safety services. 

GM’s hands-free high-level driver support technology, identified as Super Cruise, will also be accessible in the new vehicles.

The vehicles will be manufactured at GM factories in North America. 

Transactions are assumed to start in the 2024 model year in Honda’s U.S. and Canadian stores.

The firms have a deep history of operating together, plus sharing vehicles in the late 1990s when Isuzu was a member of GM. 

The majority of the collective projects have focused on hydrogen fuel cell tech, batteries and now lately, autonomous vehicles.

Past Ventures

GM and Honda developed a vital partnership in July 2013 to produce hydrogen fuel cell technology, an alliance that has created some 1,200 patents. 

The automakers established a shared venture in 2017 named Fuel Cell System Manufacturing LLC to build hydrogen fuel cell systems. 

The firms declared in 2018 an agreement for Honda to utilise battery cells and models from GM in electric vehicles manufactured for the North American market.

GM obtained Cruise in 2016; Honda later pledged $2.75 billion as a part of an elite deal with GM and its self-driving technology subsidiary Cruise to produce and develop a different type of autonomous vehicle.

This decade began with incredible hope for graphene as the miracle material that would change everything.

By 2015, hope gave way to indifference as graphene failed to live up to the smallest of expectations.

With the next decade just 15 days away, ZEN Graphene Solutions has reignited the great graphene hope with a string of great successes in 2019 that put commercialization within sight.

If you walked away from graphene years ago, you now owe it to yourself to watch this interview with ZEN CEO Francis Dube and find out why 2020 could mark the start of the graphene decade.

INTERVIEW: $ Graphene Results For Graphene Aerogel Batteries Beat The Best & Receive Federal Funding $ $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:01 PM on Sunday, November 10th, 2019

ZEN Graphene Solutions (ZEN:TSXV) and its partner “DLR” (The German Aerospace Center) reported more good news pertaining to their battery development program.

The results were very technical in nature but CEO Francis Dube sat down with AGORACOM to explain their meaning in layman’s terms, as well as, how good these results are relative to tests by other companies.  Hint – they’re better by a wide margin.

The results were so good that DLR applied for and received federal funding to create a new Innovation Lab (the Center for Aerogels) to work with industrial partners on the development of Aerogels and other graphene-based products.

This is a significant interview and well worth the time to watch it.

INTERVIEW: Lomiko Metals $ – Get Your Popcorn Ready For The Next 6 Months $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:15 PM on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019

Just 120 Km’s North of Montreal, Lomiko Metals (LMK:TSXV) has been quietly building a high-grade graphite behemoth, with the goal of becoming a world-class supplier to the electric vehicle market in terms of both quantity and quality.  With a new 43-101 looming, the last set of drill results on July 9th brought in multiple 100 m+ intercepts and 10%+ Cg Zones, serving as the icing on the cake. 

These were in addition to similar big intercepts in 2016 and gave Lomiko the final bit of incontrovertible evidence it needed to announce a financing round primarily aimed at institutions.  The Company is so confident in its completion, that it believes an updated 43.101 will be out by October and a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) will be done by Q1 2020.  That PEA is what CEO, Paul Gill, plans to use as a marketing document for major auto suppliers when he goes looking for automotive partners that will want to lock in Lomiko’s supply for the next 20-30 years.

Gill has one final reason to feel confident about his ability to become a world-class supplier to North American Mega factories by 2022 …. the only operating graphite mine in North America is just 53 km northwest of Lomiko.

As you think about your next show to start watching on NetFlix over the next few months, make sure to add Lomiko Metals to the watch list …. and get your popcorn ready.

INTERVIEW: $ Developments Over The Past 60 Days Points Towards Serious Graphene Commercialization Opportunities

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:20 PM on Friday, June 14th, 2019

Zen Graphene Solutions (ZEN:TSXV) has discovered the largest and very rare ultra high-purity graphite deposit in Northern Ontario.  The company is now determined to illustrate the commercial viability of the Deposit, which sounds like every company until you consider what has taken place in just the past 60 days:

1.  ZEN was awarded a $1,000,000 grant for Graphene-Infused Concrete Applications research.  Yep, graphene & concrete.  Who would have figured?  Well, ZEN did as research with two different Universities indicates the combination has the potential to increase the strength of concrete by 40% … which would save developers an incredible amount of money.  ZEN thinks they may be ready to deliver product into Ontario by 2020…. and so does the Grantor who didn’t want their name disclosed!

2.  ZEN signed an agreement to license a low cost, high-yield graphene production process.  Now why would it do something like that if ZEN didn’t think it would have a need to … produce?

3.  ZEN signed an MOU with the University of Manchester on commercialization collaboration opportunities.  Again “commercialization”.
Even more happened over the past 60 days … but we figure we’d save some great stuff for you to watch!
