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.
The latest Saint Jean Carbon graphene news:
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 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 has announced that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to $500,000 CAD (around $400,000 USD) .
Closing is anticipated to occur around January 30, 2018. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for general corporate and administrative purposes.
Saint Jean Carbon announces the completion of its new mill, to produce graphite and graphene materials
Saint Jean Carbon, a carbon science company focused on the development of green energy storage, creation and re-creation through the use of carbon materials, has announced that it has completed the design build of the research and development facility located in Oakville Ontario, Canada. The facility was established to process raw material directly to anode material and actual anodes in the near future.
The main purpose of the facility is to produce the very best quality graphite for a host of applications; lithium-ion batteries for electric cars, tools, cell phones, etc. As well as applications including, solar panels, graphene for use in fabric inks, wearable technologies, safety, health care and a vast array of other high tech applications.
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.
