Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (the "Company" or "Northern") announces that 3,020,000 warrants that were due to expire on March 24, 2021 have been exercised at a price of $0.40 per share. The Company realized proceeds of $1,208,000 and its cash position currently stands at $4.9 million. The Company also owns 2,000,000 shares of Electric Royalties Ltd. with a market value of approximately $650,000 and it has no debt. Northern currently has 78,820,756 shares outstanding.

Gregory Bowes, CEO commented that: "The Company greatly appreciates the vote of confidence from existing shareholders who have increased their investment by exercising warrants." He added that: "While there has been an almost constant stream of announcements about the EV plans of major automobile makers and increases in lithium ion battery manufacturing capacity, they have said little about the substantial quantity of graphite that is required to actualize these plans. This needs to change because the production of synthetic graphite has a very large environmental footprint and both it and the natural graphite market are dominated by China. There are very few graphite deposits located in countries, and owned by companies, that can meet the highest ESG standards. Northern is one of them."

About Northern Graphite

Northern Graphite is a mineral development and technology company focussed on developing its Bissett Creek graphite deposit and upgrading mine concentrates into high value components used in lithium-ion batteries, electric vehicles, fuel cells, graphene and other advanced technologies. An independent study estimates that Bissett Creek will have the highest margin of any existing or proposed graphite deposit due to its very favorable location, simple metallurgy and the high quality of its concentrates which the Company believes will provide a competitive advantage in manufacturing products for the green economy.

Bissett Creek is an advanced stage project with a full Feasibility Study and its major mining permit which puts the Company in position to make a construction decision, subject to financing. The Project is located in the southern part of Canada between the cities of North Bay and Ottawa and close to the Trans-Canada highway providing ready access to labour, supplies, equipment, natural gas and markets.

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).
