Gratomic is focused on mining and commercialization of graphite products – specifically graphene-based nano material that can be used for a wide range of mass market elastomer and polymer products, including the global tire market. Gratomic is also developing other industrial applications such as lubricants, special rust, and proof coatings.
Matrass C-Graphene Science-Technology Group is an industrial entity engaging in exploration and development of mineral resources, down-stream processing, fabrication and application of graphene, and R&D of high technology related to the graphite industry.
Archer Materials, formerly called Archer Exploration, develops mineral resources and its vision is to develop and integrate advanced materials for use in reliable energy, human health, and quantum technologies for the betterment of society.
Archer's business activities span the development of a number of critical minerals and materials, including graphite, cobalt, manganese, copper, and magnesite from exploration through to development and commercialization.
First Graphene (FGR), previously First Graphite and in the past was also MRL, aims to become a high quality graphite miner from its Sri Lankan mine prospects, and a graphene producer. The company uses an electrochemical exfoliation to produce high quality graphene from the mined Sri Lankan graphite.
ZEN Graphene Solutions, formerly called Zenyatta Ventures, is a mineral exploration and development company based in Ontario, Canada. Zen is developing the Albany Graphite Deposit – a rare hydrothermal graphite deposit with the potential to produce a natural, high-purity graphite that may compete in high-technology markets traditionally reserved for synthetic graphite.
The company's high crystallinity graphite can be upgraded without the use of aggressive acid (HF) or high temperature thermal treatment. Zen has developed an environmentally friendly metallurgical process flowsheet that consists of grinding, flotation and caustic treatment using sodium hydroxide. The company states that it has been able to achieve an extraordinary carbon purity result of >99.9 percent in bench-scale tests, using this proprietary and environmentally friendly purification process.
