…announce that a second drill rig has commenced drilling on the East Pipe with a larger drill (HQ size) in order to obtain 5 tonnes of graphite mineralization to proceed with a second phase processing of a mini-bulk sample at SGS Canada Inc. (‘SGS’) in Lakefield. This processing will allow additional optimization of the flow sheet for the preliminary economic assessment (PEA) and provide material for further testing by Zenyatta and interested parties who have requested material.
Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. President and CEO, Aubrey Eveleigh, said:
Zenyatta is presently testing the high purity graphitic material at labs and universities in North America and should have information available for release in September. In the meantime, the Company has been approached by many global corporations and academic institutions requesting Zenyatta’s unique ultra-high purity graphite material for testing in their own labs. Additional processing at SGS will provide enough ultra-high purity material for release to these various parties.
