  • Lomiko Commences Drilling At Quatre Milles East Flake Graphite Property In Quebec - CEO Buys More Shares LMR.v  0 comments

    (click to enlarge)

    After the initial pop all Graphite hype was gone this spring - only those who can show the goods will stay in the game. Lomiko now is drilling its graphite project in Canada and its ability to confirm historic high grade intersections will define this story going forward. It looks like CEO himself likes what he is doing with this company now and has bought more shares just couple of days ago.

    All juniors were beaten into the dust this summer - the ones with the real story will be coming back to life first. The most crucial will be who is supporting the company and its access to the capital - the same as in Gold and Lithium sectors.

    Graphite, Gold and Lithium - Lomiko Starts 2012 Exploration at The Vines Lake Project LMR.v

    "Lomiko is moving forward with its Gold property in addition to the Graphite dreams. CEO was constantly buying shares this spring and Graphite project is under exploration now."

    Graphite: The Newest "Next Big Thing"

    "Initial hype with graphite proved to be very short lived, but the real story is there and now the companies which can deliver will be coming out of the rubble in junior miners."

    "Lomiko Metals has received permit to start drilling on its Graphite property. According to presentation, company is fully funded for this stage of exploration. There is no news about the recently announced financing, but we guess that results from the drilling program will provide further support to the stock. Now it is time to convert all promotion into the results. Graphite side of this story is the most interesting."

    Lomiko Commences Drilling at Quatre Milles East Flake Graphite Property In Quebec

    Vancouver BC - LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX-V:LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE: DH8B) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Quatre Milles Flake Graphite Property in Quebec. Contractor Forage Val D'Or Inc. has been retained to complete the 1500-1750 metre Phase I drilling program at the Quatre Milles East Property.

    The previous drilling by Graphicor at Quatre Milles East indicated a near-surface, road-accessible target which was intersected by multiple drill holes during historic, non-43-101 drilling. The available information has been complied into a NI 43-101 which will be the template for describing a resource if the drilling program is successful.

    Lomiko geological consultants Consul-Teck have a budget of $307, 028 for Phase I and a contingent $724,041 for Phase II for work on the property in the technical report dated March 27, 2012.

    Lomiko's drilling will focus on verifying the areas of historical high-grade graphite intersected previously by Graphicor on the property. The historical results are detailed below. It is Lomiko's goal is to complete both Phase I & II and establish a flake graphite resource at the Quatre Milles Property by December 2012.

    Lomiko's Quatre Milles Graphite Property

    The Quatre Milles Property is road accessible and is located approximately 175 km northwest of Montreal and 17 km due north of the village of Sainte-Veronique, Quebec. The property consists of 28 contiguous claims totaling approximately 1,600 hectares.

    The property was originally staked and explored by Graphicor Resources Inc. ("Graphicor") in the summer of 1989 based on the results of a regional helicopter-borne EM survey. The underlying geology consists of intercalated biotite gneiss, biotite feldspar gneiss, marble, quartzite and calc-silicate lithologies of the Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville Province.

    Historical Highlights

    Graphicor completed reconnaissance mapping and prospecting as well as ground geophysics and a 26 hole diamond drill program totaling 1,625 metres. The work identified several conductive trends in the central portion of the property and at least three, relatively flat lying graphitic beds.

    Three surface samples were collected and analyzed returning results of 14.16% Cgf, 18.06% Cgf and 20.35% Cgf. 23 of the initial 26 drill holes intersected graphite concentrations with graphite concentration in range of 4.69% in hole Q90-1 to a highlight of 8.07% Cgf over 28.60 metres in hole Q90-7. The highest individual assay was reported in hole Q90-10 reporting 15.48% Cgf over 0.50 metres. A table of results from the 43-101 indicates:

    The Company cautions that it has not had the chance to verify the quality and accuracy of the historic sampling and drilling results reported in this news release which predate the introduction of NI 43-101 and cautions readers not to rely upon them. The historic figures were generated from sources believed to be reliable, however, they have not been confirmed. Although the sampling and drilling results are relevant, they have not been verified.

    Graphite Market

    -The price for flake graphite is $ 2000-$4000 per tonne depending on flake size and grade.

    -Graphite prices have been increasing in recent months and over the last couple of years prices for large flake, high purity graphite (+80 mesh, 94-97%C) have more than doubled.

    -Graphite prices have almost tripled since 2005 due to the ongoing industrialization of China, India and other emerging economies and resultant strong demand from traditional steel and automotive markets.

    -Demand for graphite is expected to rise as electric vehicles and lithium battery technology are adopted, nuclear reactors are built in China, and if fuel cells and graphene patents become products.

    -China, which produces about 70 per cent of the world's graphite, is seeing production and export growth leveling, and export taxes and a licensing system have been instituted.

    -Europe and the USA have both indicated graphite is of economic importance and has a supply risk (Critical Raw Materials for the EU, July 2010).

    Graphite Facts

    -Natural graphite comes in several forms: flake, vein, amorphous and lump.

    -Southwestern Quebec is host to some of the most favorable geological terrain for graphite exploration in Canada and is known to host graphite resources, including the nearby Lac Des Iles mine operated by Timcal.

    -Graphite has many important new applications such as lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, and nuclear and solar power that have the potential to create significant incremental demand growth.

    -There is roughly 20-30 times more graphite by weight needed to produce a lithium-ion battery than there is lithium.

    -Of the 1.2 million tonnes of graphite produced annually, approximately 40 per cent is of the most desirable flake type.

    -High-growth, high-value graphite applications require large-flake and high-purity graphite which is the prime exploration and development target at the Quatre Milles Property.

    Near-Term Strategy

    Lomiko plans to mount an aggressive exploration campaign on the Quatre Milles Graphite Property commencing with a complete compilation of historic geologic work followed by surface mapping, prospecting and follow-up diamond drilling.
