ZEN GRAPHENE SOLUTIONS CONCLUDES 2019 ALBANY WINTER DRILLING PROGRAM
Zen Graphene Solutions Ltd.'s 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 precursor graphene material for graphene applications testing. The recovered material will now be prepared for shipping so that in can be processed into high-purity graphite for graphene production.
Dr. Francis Dube, Zenyatta's co-chief executive officer 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 redeployed for other planned activities in 2019 including environmental baseline, geotechnical and hydrogeological studies.
