TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2020 / In light of Tesla’s battery week Gratomic Inc. (“GRAT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:GRAT)(OTC PINK:CBULF)(FRANKFURT:CB81) (WKN:A143MR) is gearing up to bring its high grade, environmentally sustainable graphite to the North American EV market.
In a race that started in 2012, Gratomic is the only one of several graphite companies that has successfully brought its asset through to the final construction phase.
The Company is now ready to introduce its graphite to battery producers for use in advanced anode technology. Being of such naturally high purity, Gratomic’s vein graphite is ideal for use in this application, requiring simpler, less expensive and more efficient processing methods, resulting in a final product with naturally lower contents of deleterious elements.
In addition to its high purity levels, the Company’s Aukam graphite is a much cleaner alternative to this market’s current supply options as a sustainably sourced resource as per the Company’s September 3rd Press Release. The Company intends to establish a new benchmark for recording and guaranteeing the product’s carbon footprint, based on latest generation blockchain technology.
“Gratomic has entered into discussions with several carbon-to-battery experts with the intent to provide a tailored product for the battery market.” says CEO and President, Arno Brand.
Gratomic wishes to emphasize that no Preliminary Economic Analysis (“PEA”), Preliminary Feasibility Study or Feasibility Study has been completed to support any level of production. In fact, no mineral resources, let alone mineral reserves demonstrating economic viability and technical feasibility, have been delineated on the Aukam Property.
The Company recently appointed Dr. Ian Flint to complete a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on the Aukam Processing plant. The study, its recommendations, and their subsequent implementation, will provide conclusions and recommendations at a PEA level of comfort relating to the scale up of the existing processing plant to a commercial scale processing facility that will provide the desired concentrate grades and production rates. A preliminary economic assessment is preliminary in nature, it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment will be realized.
Gratomic wishes to emphasize that the supply of graphite pursuant to any off-take or supply agreement referred to in this Press Release is conditional on Gratomic being able to bring the Aukam project into a production phase, and for any graphite being produced to meet certain technical and mineralization requirements. Gratomic continues to move its business towards production and as part of its business plan, expects to obtain a National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects technical report to help it ascertain the economics of the Aukam project.
