Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSXV:LMR,FWB:DH8B) reported results from graphite characterization tests on the Quatre Milles East property. 75.3% of material tested was >200 mesh and classified as graphite flake and 38.36% of material tested was in the >80 mesh, large flake category. The median test result was 98.35% and 85.3% of test results were higher than the 94% carbon purity.
As quoted in the press release:
The highlight of testing was the nine (9) sieve samples which captured flakes of varying sizes which tested 100% carbon. In addition, two (2) tests of -200 fine material also tested 100% carbon content.
Lomiko Metals Inc. CEO, Paul Gill, said:
Graphite characterization test results indicate Quatre Milles graphite material has significant potential as a near surface, open pit mining project aimed at fulfilling industrial graphite demand in the future. More importantly, it is an excellent candidate for graphite to graphene conversion testing under our previously announced Strategic Alliance with Graphene Labs.
