ZEN ANNOUNCES COMMENCEMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL BASELINE STUDIES ON ALBANY GRAPHITE PROJECT
Zen Graphene Solutions Ltd. has commenced work on the environmental baseline studies to support the development of the Albany graphite project. Material from the unique Albany graphite project will potentially serve as precursor graphene material for anticipated future graphene product and market opportunities.
The environmental and social baseline studies will provide important input into future project development plans, which include a project design, a class environmental assessment (EA) and regulatory permitting. ERM Canada Ltd. is leading the desktop and fieldwork associated with the baseline studies on behalf of Zen. ERM is a leading global provider of environmental, health, safety, social and sustainability consulting services with over three decades of experience in the Canadian mining industry.
As part of the initial planning for the baseline studies, ERM is actively collaborating with Constance Lake First Nation (CLFN) to maximize opportunities for involvement and incorporation of traditional knowledge. This aligns with the existing agreements Zen has signed with CLFN and a commitment to continuing engagement (please see the company's news release dated Sept. 27, 2018.).
"The initiation of field-level baseline data studies with ERM marks the next step in the development of the Albany graphite asset," said Dr. Francis Dube, Zen's chief executive officer. "As part of our baseline program design, staff and leadership of CLFN are actively involved to ensure meaningful engagement and economic development opportunities. By integrating baseline data into the early project planning stage, Zen will maximize the value to the benefit of both our shareholders and the local community."
CLFN chief Rick Allen commented: "We are happy to see Zen Graphene taking the right steps to protect the environment and work closely with us. Constance Lake First Nation looks forward to participating in this important process and moving the environmental baseline study forward as partners."
About Zen Graphene Solutions Ltd.
Zen Graphene is an emerging graphene technology company with a focus on development of the unique Albany graphite project. This precursor graphene material provides the company with a competitive advantage in the potential graphene market as independent labs in Japan, the United Kingdom, Israel, the United States and Canada have demonstrated that Zen's Albany Graphite/Naturally Pure easily converts (exfoliates) to graphene, using a variety of simple mechanical and chemical methods.
