Lomiko securing a foothold on the development of graphene and 3D printing

| May 06, 2014 | 10 Comments

Weslosky-GillMay 6, 2014 — Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel interviews A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals (‘Lomiko’, TSXV: LMR | OTCQX: LMRMF) on how Lomiko is establishing a foothold in graphene industry and evolving interest in 3D printing supplies. On April 24th Lomiko was pleased to announce that they had started to trade on the OTCQX exchange, which, as Paul comments, will enable U.S. investors, excited by graphite’s potential, to have a better trading experience. Paul said that he expects to be taking Lomiko on a road show visiting various communities in Phoenix, Las Vegas, New York, Atlanta and “we think it will certainly bring a fresh life to Lomiko.”

Tracy points out that Lomiko recently converted preferred shares into ‘Graphene 3D Lab’. Lomiko was a seed shareholder in this company, which “has developed very quickly and has filed a patent related to 3d printing filament technology and that company is progressing nicely….and we felt it was time to convert so that they could themselves become public.” To that effect, Tracy mentions that during a recent meeting she had at a prominent Toronto Law firm, not one Partner body had heard of graphene. She asks Paul to explain what graphene is and what it actually does.

Paul concedes that this is a common problem and that he continuously has to discuss the merits of this material that was first discovered in 2004 by two scientists at the University of Manchester, who went on to win the Nobel Prize for Physics: “what they created was a two dimensional object made of carbon atoms in a hexagonal shape, a structure that allowed it to be very, very strong. It is 200 times stronger than steel; it is flexible, conductive and semi-transparent.” Lomiko has been developing its graphite properties in Quebec “and looking for end users for the material we were taking out of the ground and we have sent graphite samples to a lab in New York, ‘Graphene Labs’, and they were able to convert that material into graphene and always and all of a sudden we have a whole new industry popping out of the ground.” Moreover, Paul believes that “copper is going to wane and graphite is going to take over as a material that can be used for electrical conductivity, for construction and many other uses and I think it’s going to be the new plastic.”

Paul and Tracy also discuss the ways in which Graphene 3D Lab’s 3D Printing will revolutionize technology because it allows for the direct use of graphene infused, or enhanced, polymers in a single printing (manufacturing) allowing for the production of ready to use, functional electronic devices.

    Perhaps its time to put an end to the dubious outpourings of achievement by the ubiquitous A.Paul Gill. Lomiko is of no consequence, as is Graphene Labs.
    Mr. Gill might want to consider taking a step back by proving the viability of a graphite mine and putting it into production. Don’t hold your breath because it will never happen.
    At best, Lomiko is a blot on the graphite landscape. Mr. Gill cannot not be taken seriously.

      on what grounds do you support this opinion? Mr Gill has invested, and is currently investing, his own money in Lomiko. Actually, he holds quite a large percenatge of shares in Lomiko, and I dont think he will be doing that if he would not see a bright future in the company.

    Thanks Banker Bob for reminding us that …. all that can be invented has already been invented ….. and that there is no such thing as disruptive technology emerging from small companies ( Microsoft? Dell? Ebay? and, and, and…), but please remember that Bill Gates is quoted as saying that his greatest fear in business is not from the existing tech behemoths but from some guy in his garage working on creative ideas. Personally I doubt that its time to shut down the patent office.

      and don’t forget, Bill Gates also predicted that no one would ever use more that 64k of memory. Dude knows what he’s talkin’ about. The joke was, Oh yeah. A 64k computer using an 8bit processor running a 2bit operating system.

    I would like to thank Goldman and Tom for being gentlemen and would like to address Banker Bob.

    BB, I think you need to review Paul’s track record and appreciate that he has been on the leading edge of technology and the graphite sector — and was here before the rise in interest started.

    If you do not like Paul, very well as we are all entitled to our own opinions; but review what your words say about you? For some reason you are drawn to Lomiko, and you should ask yourself why.

    Trust me, I have done this exercise on myself many times before and the results are never fun to hear.

    Take my advice and keep your comments on the stories you like, and we will all get the picture.

    Now as for Lomiko? Paul has always been good on his word with me, and has pleasantly surprised me — and exceeded corporate benchmarks…and, well; he has been at the forefront of leadership in understanding the tidal wave of technology.

    I wish I had a piece of 3D Printing, and well — keep up the great work Paul.

      Tracy, interesting video spot, thank you.

      Brass as I may be…obvious its not juice for my ears
      to hear Graphene as a substitute for Copper however
      its an interesting thought because aluminium is already
      doing some of that in particular with high wire electrical
      circuits nonetheless.

      Just as conductive graphene (and graphite) may be and
      the possibility of using graphene ink I believe you need to
      ask Paul how the conductivity will be circuited and if the
      connector plug can be printed too ?

      ink re-fills ? yes nice one and well done, but seriously…
      what dry time do you anticipate and will it dry evenly?
      graphene is made under highly controlled atmospheres
      the infamous kitchen blender is not in a controlled

      Perhaps some hit air from the Mozambiquan plains will
      help if you get my drift.

      Graphene is the at the leading edge of the next level of materials science. This has gone from experimental basis to beginning applications in record time. The potential is extreme across several industries. Game changers come along and the futurists invest in, develop and produce ALL that we appreciate as a “modern” civilization. I’m waiting for graphene tech to hit Solar Roadways.

    Amen, Reverend!

    Well, Mr. BankerBob, whoever you are, you missed the boat on the Graphene 3D IPO unless you changed your mind before the August. Skeptics usually accomplish nothing. The world is changing at you should ask yourself what type of person you are: 1) The person who sees the change and adapts 2) the person who asks ‘what’s happening? or 3) The person who asks ‘what happened?’ TSXV: GGG is now trading at $ 1.60 and Lomiko had a $ 7 million equity stake and still has $ 4 million in the bank also. I guess you are asking ‘what happened?’ – APG

    Thank you Paul for visiting InvestorIntel and commenting….it is always rewards me as a Publisher when I see CEO’s comment on the site, thank you. The points you made above were articulated to another source yesterday…

    Not sure you noted this but Peter Epstein included a Lomiko update in his Graphite Market Review on Tuesday, and if memory serves you were in a Graphene update last week…

    Thanks again for visiting and updating our audience. Nice to hear from you.
