Lomiko Metals, Inc. (LMRMD, LMRMF) Offers One of the Brightest Potentials in Mining and Materials

Lomiko Metals (OTCQB: LMRMD) (OTC: LMRMF) has positioned itself on top of an extremely positive supply-demand curve, with a unique opportunity for low-cost production of a key mineral that underpins much of the growing green economy.

Lomiko’s core focus is on the exploration and development of minerals such as lithium and graphite, the latter of which is used for energy storage in products such as lithium-ion batteries, especially those used for electric vehicles (EV), and for which there is no cheaper alternative.

The demand for EVs is expected to see rapid growth for at least the next 20 years, and the demand for flake graphite is forecast to exceed the supply by 2018. For perspective, if Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) Gigafactory meets its proposed rate of 500,000 cars per year by 2020, this facility alone would require the entire supply of lithium-ion batteries available today. Tesla plans on meeting its own supply, however, and upon full capacity – expected by 2018 – the Gigafactory is expected to produce more batteries each year than the total produced worldwide in 2013.

Lomiko’s exceptional position in all this is the fact that it has acquired a superior graphite mining property in Quebec, the La Loutre Flake Graphite Property. The property’s verified quality-grade mineralization is close to the surface, which reduces costs, and it is also close to the port of Montreal for easy shipment.

As of now, China controls about 70% of the world’s graphite, only a portion of which is the desirable flake graphite. High-purity crystal flake graphite supply is especially limited and the center of demand, since it is the form of graphite needed for lithium-ion batteries and other green technologies. As demand for graphite threatens to overtake supply, companies like Lomiko with productive flake graphite properties will be in an especially commanding position.

Another reason graphite demand continues to rise is that when the mineral is processed into graphene it becomes an almost science fiction-like material, with properties that offer untold possibilities.

Graphene is the world’s first two-dimensional material, meaning that it is made from sheets of connected carbon atoms just one atom thick, but of unlimited width and breadth. It is a thousand times as conductive as copper, even at room temperature; extremely light and flexible, yet 200 times stronger than steel; and, though it is a new material, thousands of patents have already been filed relating to it, including 3D printing, where Lomiko holds an equity position with a 3D printing lab.

Graphene’s huge potential for application, in green technologies and other areas, is the reason Lomiko plans to create joint ventures through its subsidiary, Lomiko Technologies, an investor in graphene technology and manufacturer of electronic products. The company has already developed a partnership with Graphene Laboratories Inc., a Graphene 3D Lab, Inc. (OTCQB: GPHBF) company, for the development of a process whereby graphite can be efficiently converted into graphene.

Fully supporting the push for a new green economy, and driven by a highly-qualified management team with foresight into industry demand, Canada-based Lomiko is well-positioned as an active, competitive player in the broader mining and minerals sector.
