L
omiko Metals Inc. (TSXV: LMR, OTCQX: LMRMF, FSE: DH8B)
is a Canada-based, exploration-stage company. It is
engaged in the development of technology and minerals
for the new green economy. Currently, its mineral properties
include the Quatre Milles graphite property and the Vines Lake
property. Lomiko also has an option to earn an 80% interest in
the La Loutre graphite property through a joint venture agreement
with Canada Strategic Metals (TSXV:CJC).
Furthermore, Lomiko is invested in graphene technologies through
Graphene 3D Lab (TSXV: GGG, OTC: GPHBF), owning 10.43%
(4.4 million shares), a start-up company that would use
graphene-enhanced plastic to print electrically conductive
materials from a 3D printer. The company filed a provisional
patent application for some of its processes in January 2014. On
23 October 2014, Graphene 3D Lab announced it had reached a
significant milestone by printing a battery using a 3D printer. On 3
December, Lomiko entered into its second graphene start-up
through investing 200,000 Canadian Dollars (~€142,000) for
40% of Graphene ESD (Energy Storage Devices).

A review of 2013-2014 developments
In 2013, Lomiko firmly entered the exciting and vital world
of graphene:
n
12 February: Lomiko signed a strategic alliance agreement
with Graphene Laboratories Inc. to build vertically integrated
graphene business opportunities;
n
29 May: Lomiko announced a strategic alliance agreement
with SUNY Research Foundation at Stony Brook University and
Graphene Laboratories Inc. to investigate novel, energy-focused
applications for graphene;
n
17 September: Lomiko and Graphene Laboratories Inc.
reported that natural graphite flakes were oxidised and
successfully converted into graphene oxide (GO) by a modified
version of Hummers’ method;
n
22 November: Lomiko and Graphene Laboratories Inc.
announced the formation of Graphene 3D Labs Inc. to focus
on the development of high-performance, graphene-enhanced
materials for 3D printing:
n
Lomiko will provide further graphite samples to Graphene
3D Labs Inc. as its exclusive supplier and has invested
$50,000 in the start-up for 250,000 preferred shares; and
n
4 December: Lomiko Metals Inc., Graphene Laboratories Inc.,
and Stony Brook University produced a graphene
supercapacitor prototype:
n
The prototype of the supercapacitor was made using
graphene composite material prepared using a proprietary
technology developed at Graphene Laboratories Inc.; and
n
The measured specific capacitance of the prototype was
comparable with the best values reported in the literature
for a supercapacitor of this type.
Its achievements continued in 2014:
n
20 January: Graphene 3D Labs Inc. announced it had reached
a significant milestone by filing a provisional patent application
for the use of graphene-enhanced material, along with other
materials, in 3D printing (additive manufacturing);
n
13 March: Lomiko closed a public offering of $5.5m for
exploration on the mineral properties in Québec, for
development of its technology business, and for working
capital and general corporate purposes;
The new green economy is in constant need of technological development.
Lomiko Metals Inc. is focused on the conversion of graphite to graphene and
