Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSX-V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE: DH8C) (Lomiko or the "Company") is currently working on the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") at the La Loutre Flake Graphite Project. Lomiko has re-named the Refractory Zone to the EV Zone. The name ‘Refractory' was not a reference to the type of ore found but to an end-product for flake graphite like batteries or graphene, which are the names of the other zones. However, because it is also a geology term, it caused confusion for readers. There is no indication of ‘Refractory' ore on the property.

Graphene-Battery Zone

The successful 2019 drilling campaign was at the EV Zone (formerly Refractory). Please see the detailed EV Zone drill map for details. The Project was also the subject of an independent technical report in accordance with NI 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, prepared by B. Turcotte and G. Servelle of InnovExplo Inc. from Val-d'Or, Québec, and O. Peters, of AGP Mining Inc., dated March 24, 2016 , filed for the Project's combined Graphene-Battery Zone . The report presented a mineral resource estimate of 18.4 M Tonnes at a grade of 3.19% carbon flake graphite ("Cg") in the Indicated category and 16.7 M Tonnes at 3.75% Cg in the Inferred category using a cut-off of 1.5% Cg. At a 3% cut-off, the resource estimate is 4.14 M Tonnes of 6.50% Cg in the Indicated category and 6.1 M tonnes of 6.1% Cg.

The above-noted 2016 mineral resource does not include the significant intercepts from the EV Zone in 2016. A new combined PEA will include results from both zones.

EV Zone Highlights

LL-16-01 - 7.74% Cg over 135.60 m including 16.81% Cg over 44.10 m

LL-16-02 - 17.08% Cg over 22.30 m and 14.80% Cg over 15.10 m

LL-16-03 - 14.56% Cg over 110.80 m

Results from the 2019 program EV drill Program are highlighted in the February 5, 2020 News Release. A total of 21 holes were completed in 2019 on the EV Zone for a total of 2,985 metres.

"La Loutre has proven to be a large and high-grade area worthy of further investment," stated A. Paul Gill, CEO. "The only operating graphite mine in North America is the Imerys Graphite & Carbon at Lac-des-Îles, 53 km northwest of La Loutre which reported Proven reserves of 5.2 M Tonnes at a grade of 7.42 % Cg in July 1988 before the start of production."

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.
