Saint Jean Carbon

Saint Jean is a publicly traded junior mining exploration company with graphite mining claims on five 100% Company-owned properties located in the province of Quebec in Canada. The five properties include the Walker property, a past producing mine, the Wallingford property, the St. Jovite property, East Miller and Clot Property. The Company also holds the Page graphite property in Ontario.

In April 2015, SJC decided to enter the graphene market and signed an agreement with Graphenea. Since then the company announced several graphene research projects, includings ones for batteries and superconductive graphene.

Saint Jean Carbon announces two graphene-related projects

Saint Jean Carbon has announced that it has been awarded two graphene-related projects from K-Technology USA.

The first project is the development of superconducting wire based on Saint Jean’s provisional patent application for the development of a diamagnetic superconducting wire. The project intends to develop the necessary engineering to make a prototype wire. The second project is to develop a waste energy capture system patented by K-Technology. The project entails the rewiring of the motors (4) on a drone with Saint Jean hyper-conducting wire and engineering an alternator re capture system to recharge the batteries.

Saint Jean Carbon is developing graphene gel salt water batteries

Saint Jean Carbon has announced that it is developing a new form of graphene battery technology and will start building the first prototype of its graphene gel salt water batteries. Batteries based on this technology should charge faster, run longer and theoretically may last indefinitely. The project’s long term goal is to have a series of three full production batteries ready for launch in spring 2020.

Saint Jean Carbon stated that salt water battery technology has been in research for about 5 years. Continued advancement slowed due to limited voltage capacity in comparison with Lithium batteries. Now with the use of graphene in a highly concentrated salt water gel, graphene can now be used without worrying about the graphene re-stacking, which would reduce the intercalation rate. Salt water batteries are much safer, won’t burn and have significantly less raw material cost.

Saint Jean Carbon takes part in two NSERC grants

Saint Jean Carbon has announced its participation in two Collaborative Research and Development grants from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

The first grant for $274,000 (350,000 Canadian dollars) is for the continued collaborative research and development of modification and scale-up of graphene for supercapacitor applications . The Company will work with the University of Waterloo to develop the supercapacitor. The terms for the grant are divided over three years based on availability of funds. The second grant for $60,000 over two years to the University of Western Ontario is for the collaborative research and development of luminescent carbon dots for multi-applications.

Saint Jean Carbon raises $500,000 in private placement

Saint Jean Carbon, a carbon science company engaged in the design and development of carbon materials and their applications, has announced its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to $500,000. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for general corporate and administrative purposes.

In January 2017, Saint Jean Carbon received (along with Western University) a grant from the The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) towards the development of graphene-based systems with special magnetic properties. In June 2017, Saint Jean Carbon announced that it closed a financing round totaling in $667,500.

Saint Jean Carbon intends to raise $2.5 million in a new funding round

Saint Jean Carbon announced that it intends to raise $2.5 million in two private placements. The company already closed the first tranche of the common unit offering with a gross proceeds of $327,500.

Saint Jean Carbon recently produced two samples of single layer graphene (1) dispersion 20 mL, 0.1%, with pure 100 mL water and (2) a 50 mg of powder. The company also created graphene that has a magnetic field (Magnetoresistance) and is also researching graphene-enhanced batteries.

Saint Jean Carbon provides phase one results of graphene-based battery project

Saint Jean Carbon has reported the results of the first phase of its graphene battery project, announced in January, 2017. According to SJC, while primary at this point, the graphene battery has outperformed the graphite battery, as shown by a greater discharge capacity of about 30%. Both batteries were manufactured with the same material, battery A graphite anode and B graphene anode.

The company supplied performance results, among which are the graphite anode’s theoretical capacity of 372 mAh/g and the theoretical capacity of the graphene anode of 700 mAh/g. Beyond 100 cycles the discharge capacity for the graphite was 200 to 220 mAh/g and for the graphene 310 to 330 mAh/g. The testing processes included charging to 3V at 500 mA/g and discharging to 0.05V at 100 mA/g. SJC said that neither the graphene nor graphite was enhanced so the variations in the results have to be additionally tested.

Saint Jean Carbon announces graphene-based li-ion battery

Saint Jean Carbon recently announced that it has started the design and build of a graphene based lithium-ion battery. SJC stated that based on the Company’s graphene production capabilities, the material being produced is 99.999999%gC and a single layer of graphite measuring one atom in thickness will be used to create the anode.

This announcement follows two years of research, and the Company feels that due to the fact that no harsh chemicals or heat has been used to produce the graphene, the high order of carbon is kept in perfect condition, creating the possibility of extremely high performance for lithium-ion battery applications.
