South Star Battery Metals Announces Small-Scale Pilot Metallurgical Testing Program for Alabama Graphite Project

South Star Battery Metals Corp. is pleased to announce that it has contracted North Carolina State University Mineral Research Laboratory to complete a metallurgical testing program using 3 x 1-tonne samples of ore from various targets within the Ceylon Graphite Project in Coosa County, Alabama.

South Star Battery Metals Corp. ("South Star" or the "Company") (TSXV: STS) (OTCQB: STSBF), is pleased to announce that it has contracted North Carolina State University Mineral Research Laboratory ("MRL") to complete a metallurgical testing program using 3 x 1-tonne samples of ore from various targets within the Ceylon Graphite Project ("Project") in Coosa County, Alabama. The goal of the program is to create a representative 1 tonne ore sample to retest and confirm processing methods and reagents from previous process work. The small-scale pilot test will also generate approximately 15kg of concentrates (> 94% Cg) as well as intermediate products and tailings samples for future geotechnical, chemical, and physical testing programs to better characterize the ore, the tailings as well as final concentrates. The concentrates will then be used to test for a variety of value-add products as well as minerology, similar to the testing program completed on Santa Cruz Graphite concentrates (See March 1, 2021 press release). The metallurgical testing is expected to begin in July of 2022 and be completed in approximately 16 weeks.

Richard Pearce, President & CEO commented, "We are very excited to get started on our work program in Alabama and generate some concentrate samples we can test for industrial and value add applications including a variety battery precursor material.   Intermediate products as well as ROM and tailings samples will also be collected to help characterize the materials for future environmental and civil design work. MRL has an excellent facility nearby, and our team is excited to be working with their talented professionals. It's a great resource to have so close to the Project. If the results of this program confirm the previous test work, we will be looking to send 30 to 40 tonnes of ore to our soon to be constructed Santa Cruz plant and run through a full scale pilot plant test. We will work hard with our partners to make the Project the second new graphite mine in the Americas brought online and the first in the United States."

Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSX.V: LMR) ("Lomiko Metals" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an update on the initial metallurgical programs conducted for the La Loutre graphite project. Lomiko has engaged three independent laboratories, Corem, ProGraphite and SGS Lakefield to support the value-added metallurgical testing of samples of the La Loutre graphite concentrate.

As part of the 2022 strategic objectives, as previously announced on March 3, 2022, Lomiko is undertaking several metallurgical studies to further define the chemical and physical properties of La Loutre graphite concentrate. These studies have several goals, including (a) determining the upgrading potential of the graphite flotation concentrate for value-added processing, (b) confirming the plant flowsheet to aid in the plant design for the Pre-Feasibility Study, and (c) evaluating the production of spherical graphite for anode battery applications. This characterization work facilitates the development of Technical Data Sheets (TDS) to initiate customer partnership discussions.
