Ms. Genik has over 25 years of experience working on mining and infrastructure projects in Canada and around the world. In Québec Ms. Genik has supported several mining clients, as well as infrastructure projects, with their community relations and stakeholder engagement. She is a respected subject-matter expert in ESG and Sustainability, Stakeholder Engagement and Strategic Communications. Ms. Genik will work with the Lomiko Technical, Safety and Sustainability Committee established in November 2020 to ensure the project receives input from all stakeholders.

She is a member of the Board of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada ("PDAC") and sits on its Sustainability Committee. In 2018 she was awarded the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum ("CIM")'s Distinguished Lecturer Award for CSR. Prior to founding Bridge© in 2013, Ms. Genik was working with BHP in Canada. Ms. Genik is perfectly fluent in French, as well as English and Spanish.

" Lomiko is excited to have Siri join its team and is looking forward to building meaningful and long-lasting relationships with the surrounding First Nations and local community of the La Loutre Project, through continued open, transparent and collaborative communication ." stated A. Paul Gill, CEO.

Lomiko Technical Safety and Sustainability Committee (LTSSC)

Lomiko is focused on the exploration and development of flake graphite in Quebec for the new green economy. Lomiko established the LTSSC to oversee the assessment of the La Loutre Flake Graphite Property and liaise with service providers, technical staff and stakeholders to put forward a series of documents including but not limited to, Graphite Characterization and Metallurgy, a Preliminary Economic Assessment, and if required pre-feasibility, bulk samples, pilot plant, feasibility and construction. The Committee is responsible for advising the Board of Directors to make crucial decisions on the project.

Quebec's Role in The New Green Economy

In 2020, The Quebec Government released the Quebec Plan for Development of Critical and Strategic Minerals ("The Quebec Plan") which indicates graphite demand would likely increase 300-500% in the coming decades as more is used in the production of spherical graphite for anode portion of Electric Vehicle Lithium-ion batteries. Quebec has an opportunity play a vital role in reducing carbon emissions and become a key provider of critical battery materials to the North American economy.

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.

Northern Graphite Concentrates Demonstrate Excellent Performance in Battery Testing

Northern Graphite Concentrates Demonstrate Excellent Performance in Battery Testing

Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (the "Company" or "Northern") is pleased to announce that battery anode material ("BAM") manufactured from its Bissett Creek concentrates demonstrated excellent electrochemical performance during recent battery testing by ProGraphite in Germany. Testing showed that Northern's anode material can be charged to high values which remain stable with high Coulomb efficiency under various discharge conditions. ProGraphite concluded that Northern's anode material is very well suited for the manufacture of high capacity, durable, long-life lithium-ion batteries.

ProGraphite is one of the world's leading graphite R&D laboratories with several decades of professional expertise and experience. Its test results demonstrated that Bissett Creek BAM can be charged to lithiation values above 362 mAh/g which shows that the capacity of the batteries will be excellent. The delithiation (discharging) performance was also excellent as the batteries delivered stable, high values with a very high Coulomb efficiency under various test conditions. Northern's BAM also proved to be very robust. Even after charging/discharging several times at 10C (i.e. complete charging in only six minutes) and after many cycles, the Coulomb efficiency remained at a very high, constant level indicating almost no degradation of the anode material. This performance is better than many commercial natural or synthetic grades.
