In the ‘center of the hurricane’ Lomiko successfully produces graphene
October 11, 2013 — Tracy Weslosky, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of InvestorIntel interviews Paul Gill, President and CEO of Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSXV: LMR) to discuss the company’s strategic alliance with Graphene Laboratories Inc. (a powerhouse in the graphene space, based in Calverton, NY, that actually produces and sells graphene to over 5,000 customers) as well as one of Lomiko’s most significant corporate milestones achieved to date – the announcement that graphite samples from Lomiko’s Quatre Milles Property were converted to Graphene Oxide and Reduced Graphene Oxide.
Lomiko’s Strategic Alliance is focused on developing a vertically integrated supply chain for large-scale graphene production. The Strategic Alliance has provided Lomiko with an exclusive opportunity to participate in Graphene Lab’s projects such as the Supercapacitor Project in collaboration with the SUNY Research Foundation at Stony Brook University in New York.
Tracy starts by asking Paul to comment on Graphene Laboratories conversion of Lomiko’s graphite into graphene. Gill starts: “this is something that has been in the works since February when we signed the deal with Graphene Labs. We saw an opportunity to supply them with graphite material that they could convert to graphene and sell as graphene oxide. So we have been steadily working away at taking samples and sending them batches. The first batch that we’ve converted from graphite to graphene oxide has been successful and it’s been reduced also to reduced graphene oxide, which is what we’re going to use in our super capacitor project… we’ve done a drilling campaign last year. We found some really good intercepts of graphite, natural flake graphite that’s 99.999% pure. And we plan to do another drilling campaign – we’ve raised money to do so – and get a resource completed by the end of this year.”
