Thunder Bay, ON – 22 March 2019 – ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd. (“ZEN” or “Company”) (TSXV: ZEN) announces that its winter drilling program on the Albany Graphite Project has concluded with two large diameter holes totalling 263 metres having been completed. These two holes yielded over 110 tonnes of Albany Graphite material, sufficient material to produce several tonnes of purified graphite to be used as pre-cursor graphene material for graphene applications testing. The recovered material will now be prepared for shipping so that it can be processed into high purity graphite for graphene production.
Dr. Francis Dubé, Zenyatta’s Co‐CEO and Head of Business Development and Technology said: “While unseasonably mild temperatures forced earlier termination of the program than originally planned, sufficient material was collected to be used to develop ZEN’s commercialized graphene production process and larger scale graphene applications development. Since the permits remain valid until at least 2022, ZEN will be able to collect additional bulk sample material as needed next year.”
A decision will be made on an additional bulk sampling program during the course of the year as the Company moves forward in developing graphene enhanced applications. Surplus funds from the 2019 program will be re-deployed for other planned activities in 2019 including, environmental baseline, geotechnical and hydrogeological studies.
Mr. Peter Wood, P.Eng, P.Geo., President and COO of ZEN Graphene Solutions, is the “Qualified Person” for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed, prepared and supervised the preparation of the technical information contained in this news release.
