Toronto, ON. August 18, 2022, Gratomic Inc. (“Gratomic”, “GRAT,” or the “Company”) (TSXV:GRAT) (OTCQX:CBULF) (FSE:CB82) provides a progress update on its current sixteen-trench program, which commenced on the 15th of August at its Capim Grosso project in Brazil. This program aims to unveil the extension of a second graphite deposit located south-east of the main deposit on the Company’s Capim Grosso Project.
To date, the Company has five confirmed trench hits in the second graphite body. The mineralized zone has an extension beyond 500 meters, with graphite gneiss with orientation well defined.
The trenching program is estimated to take 6 working days. See below map showing the planned location for the trenches:
Initial findings at the first trench appear promising (see pictures below), and depending on how the program continues, the Company’s local geology team still has the possibility to move the excavator to the Jacobina project, located 30km from the Capim Grosso project, and execute some exploratory trenches at that project.
Arno Brand, President & CEO, states, “Brazil is a powerhouse in the graphite mineral sector. We are extremely pleased to have secured graphite projects there and look forward to seeing results on this most recent program.”
“Gratomic is thrilled with the results obtained so far from its properties in Brazil, and this trenching program will allow us to define new targets for exploration, thus increasing the potential for identifying mineral potential,” says Armando Farhate COO & Head of Graphite Marketing & Sales.
Gratomic is a multinational company with projects in Namibia, Brazil, and Canada. The Company is focused on becoming a leading global graphite supplier and aims to secure a strong position in the EV battery supply chain. With the continued development of its flagship Aukam project and further exploration on the Company’s Capim Grosso property, Gratomic sets itself apart by seeking out unique top-quality assets around the world. True to its roots, the Company will continue to explore graphite opportunities displaying potential for development. The Company ranked third place in the top 10 preforming mining stocks on the 2022 TSX Venture 50™.
Large quantities of high-quality vein graphite have been shipped for testing to confirm its viability as an anode material. Gratomic is confident that the test results will provide a unique competitive advantage in its desired target markets. The Company will continue to update the public on the status of these tests and will provide results as soon as they become available.
The Company has formed a collaboration agreement with Forge Nano. With its patented ALD coating, this cooperation with Forge Nano is a key element to support Gratomic’s strategies towards the value-added phases of production of graphite for anode applications, namely micronization, spheronization and coating, making Gratomic graphite a preferred choice for use in lithium-ion batteries.
