Lomiko Sends 94%-100.00%, High to Ultra Pure Carbon Flake Graphite Samples to Graphene Labs for Graphite to Graphene Testing
(Nanowerk News) Lomiko Metals announces that it has prepared a variety of high to ultra pure carbon flake graphite samples for testing by Strategic Alliance Partner Graphene Laboratories Inc., which has been involved in researching graphene and the development of graphene-related products.
Lomiko and Graphene Labs plan to co-develop a vertically integrated supply chain that includes a secure supply of high-quality graphite, cost-effective and scalable processing, tight quality control and integration of graphene-based products in end-user products. The parties will capitalize on the secure supply of high quality graphite, provided by Lomiko, and the extensive customer database and expertise in graphene materials brought by Graphene Labs.
Lomiko will provide mineral samples from the Quatre Milles Project required for testing natural high quality flake graphite for graphene conversion. The primary goal of testing is for Graphene Labs to develop a feasible procedure for the purification of flake graphite for use in graphene production. Graphene Labs will also provide guidance on technologies tailored to the production of graphene and graphene-related materials.
Further, Lomiko will continue to work towards securing financing to complete the acquisition of the Quatre Milles West Property.

Lomiko Metals Inc Background
Lomiko Metals Inc. is a Canada-based, exploration-stage company. The Company is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of resource properties that contain minerals for the new green economy. Its mineral properties include the Quatre Milles Graphite Property and the Vines Lake property which both have had recent major discoveries. In April, 2012, a 122 Ha zinc anomaly in soils was found on the Company's 100% owned Vines Lake property. The Vines Lake property is located in the south western corner of the Cassiar Gold District. The Vines Lake property consists of fifteen claims comprising 5,290 hectares. In October and November, 2012, Lomiko Metals Inc. announced 11 drill holes had intercepted several high grade intercepts of 9.81%, 10.11% and 10.80% over 3 to 5 metres in length 4.77 metres or less from the surface at the 3,780 Ha Quatre Milles Property indicating open pit potential. The project is located 175 km north of the Port of Montreal and 26 km from a major highway on a well-maintained gravel road.
