Lomiko Metals Provides Update on its Circular and Announces Release of Year-End Financials

Lomiko Metals Provides Update on its Circular and Announces Release of Year-End Financials

Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSX-V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE: DH8C) ("Lomiko Metals" or the "Company") announces that further to its management information circular dated November 4, 2021 and filed on SEDAR (the "Circular"), it wishes to provide more information to its shareholders regarding the extension of closing of the sale of the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Lomiko Technologies Inc., in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (BC), to Promethieus Technologies Inc.

The Circular mentions that the Share Purchase Agreement was entered into on July 31, 2020. The Company would like to correct that information, as the agreement was actually entered into on July 31, 2019. Shareholders originally approved the transaction in 2019 at a shareholders meeting. The Share Purchase Agreement was subsequently amended with amending agreements dated December 10, 2019, June 20, 2020 and October 5, 2021. Due to Brexit and Covid-19, the transaction never closed, hence the reason shareholders are requested to consider and to approve a special resolution authorizing another extension of the Share Purchase Agreement in the Circular for a new closing date of November 30, 2022.

South Star Battery Metals Announces Successful LiB Results from Completed Cycle Testing and Premium Dispersion Products for Alkaline Battery Markets Superior to Leading Synthetic Graphites

South Star Battery Metals Announces Successful LiB Results from Completed Cycle Testing and Premium Dispersion Products for Alkaline Battery Markets Superior to Leading Synthetic Graphites

South Star Battery Metals Corp. (" South Star " or the " Company ") (TSXV: STS) (OTCQB: STSBF), along with its technological partner in the United States ("US Lab" 1 ), are pleased to announce the successful final life cycle testing results for over 100 cycles (charging and discharging) in CR2016 LiB coin cells constructed with anode material (coated spherical purified graphite "SPG") produced from the Santa Cruz Graphite Project. In separate test work, a highly conductive dispersion was also tested that exceeds current industry standards for conductive coating applications in both energy storage and advanced purity dry film lubrication markets.

South Star's cycle testing program is complete and exceeded 100 cycles for the LiB cells. One cycle consists of 10 hours of charge and 10 hours of discharge, therefore 100 cycles equal approximately 2,000 hours total. The tests indicate very stable results with approximately 2.2% degradation through 100+ cycles while maintaining reversible capacity on the order of 342 – 345 mAh/g throughout. If these results were projected out, approximately 900 cycles could be achieved before reaching the 20% industry standard cutoff. These results are generally competitive with synthetic graphite and indicates that the Santa Cruz's battery anode material are excellent quality material that are suitable for a variety of LiB applications including EV markets. Upcoming work includes sample preparation of various downstream products so that the qualification process can begin along with processing flowsheet optimizations and performance validation. (Refer to September 22, 2021 press release for results from initial 75 cycles).

NextSource Materials Awards Contract to Power Its Molo Graphite Mine in Madagascar with Hybridized Solar-Thermal Energy

NextSource Materials Awards Contract to Power Its Molo Graphite Mine in Madagascar with Hybridized Solar-Thermal Energy

NextSource Materials Inc. (TSX:NEXT)(OTCQB:NSRCF) ("NextSource" or the "Company") announces it has awarded a power supply contract to independent power producer CrossBoundary Energy ("CBE") for the long-term supply of solar and thermal generation to power the operations of its Molo graphite mine in Madagascar. The contract is for a 20-year term and has been designed to scale with the production output of the Molo mine, where delivery of power will increase in lockstep with all future expansion capacity requirements

A subsidiary of CBE in Madagascar is developing the project and will build, own, and operate the Molo hybrid energy power plant ("hybrid plant") at no capital cost to NextSource. It will be located adjacent to the Molo mine site and is expected to be operational at the same time as the Molo mine is expected to commission in Q2 of 2022. Through this contract, NextSource will initially be able to source up to one third of the Molo mine's total electricity needs from renewable solar energy. NextSource and CBE are committed to optimizing the solar component throughout the contract to increase the percentage of renewable energy to a majority.
