Zenyatta logoZEN 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.

According to the Zen, current end uses for its graphene materials include composites (concrete, rubber and plastics), energy storage and environmental applications but many more are under development.

ZEN Graphene Solutions enters MOU with The University of Manchester

Zen Graphene Solutions logo imageZEN Graphene Solutions has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The University of Manchester in the UK.



The purpose of the MOU is to explore opportunities of collaboration in the areas of development and commercialization of graphene and other 2D materials and accelerate the adoption of these materials into commercially viable markets.

Zenyatta Ventures announces name change to ZEN Graphene Solutions

Zenyatta logoZenyatta Ventures has announced that it has obtained TSX Venture Exchange approval and has changed its name from “Zenyatta Ventures Ltd.” to “ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd.”. The name change reflects the Company’s decision to focus its development plans for the Albany Graphite Project on the graphene nano-material product opportunity.

The Company stated that the unique genesis and microcrystalline structure of the high-purity Albany Graphite mineralization gives ZEN a significant competitive advantage in producing mono-layer to few-layer graphene that is in the highest demand. The Company reported that it is presently assessing the various graphene conversion methods developed within its network of collaborative research partners with the goal of defining various scalable, low-cost, low-energy and environmentally friendly production methods.

Zenyatta provides updates on fund-raising and graphene applications progress

Zenyatta logoZenyatta Ventures has announced its plans to raise up to $3,000,000 CAD (around $2,240,000 USD) on a non-brokered private placement basis. The proceeds will be used for bulk sampling, environmental assessment and community engagement.

Zentayya also provided an update on its graphene market development work ,which has led to the creation of five significant potential market verticals for the Company which include aerospace, biomedical, water treatment, transportation and civil engineering.
