Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSXV:LMR,OTC:LMRMF,FSE:DH8B) is a Vancouver, British Columbia based exploration company focused on graphite. In January 2012, the company acquired 100 percent interest in the Quatre Milles East Graphite Property and completed a successful drilling campaign. In February 2013, the company announced a strategic alliance with Graphene Labs of New York to work on a process to transform flake graphite from the property to graphene. Lomiko also was provided the exclusive right to finance Graphene Labs but must complete $2,000,000 of funding in 18 months. Lomiko will also have the opportunity to work with Graphene Labs on Research and Development. Graphite samples have been sent to Graphene Labs for graphene conversion.

Quatre Milles Graphite Property
The Quatre Milles Graphite Property is located 175 km northwest of Montreal and 17 km north of the town of Sainte-Véronique. The underlying geology consists of intercalated biotite gneiss, biotite feldspar gneiss, marble, quartzite and calc-silicate lithologies of the Central Metasedimentary belt of the Grenville province.
The property was originally staked and explored by Graphicor Resources Inc. during the summer of 1989 based on the results of a regional helicopter-borne EM survey. Graphicor completed reconnaissance mapping, prospecting, ground geophysics as well as a twenty-six hole diamond drill program totaling 1,625 metres.
Graphicor Resources identified several conductive trends in the central portion of the property and at least three, relatively flat lying graphitic beds. Three surface samples were collected and analyzed returning results of 14.16 percent Cgf (graphite), 18.06 percent Cgf and 20.35 percent Cgf. Twenty-three of the initial 26 drill holes intersected graphite concentrations with a highlight of 8.07 per cent Cgf over 28.60 metres in hole Q90-7. The highest individual assay was reported in hole Q90-10, which returned 15.48 percent Cgf over 0.50 metres.
Lomiko Metals is currently planning an exploration program for the Quatre Milles Property including mapping, prospecting and diamond drilling to test and confirm the areas of historical high-grade graphite intersected previously by Graphicor Resources Inc. on the property.
Lomiko Metals completed drilling on the Quatre Milles East Graphite Property in September 2012 resulting in several long intercepts of flake graphite.

- QM 12-17: 5.20 m to 37.73 m, 32.53 m of 2.89 per cent Cg
- QM 12-19: two m to 43.30 m, 41.30 m of 2.73 per cent Cg
- QM 12-20: 4.30 m to 44.75 m, 40.45 m of 2.83 per cent Cg, including 3.45 m of 10.01 per cent Cg
- QM 12-21: 1.35 m to 39.50 m, 38.15 m of 3.43 per cent Cg, including 4.77 m of 10.80 per cent Cg
- QM 12-22: 11.20 m to 51.00 m, 39.80 m of 3.71 per cent Cg, including 9.90 m of 8.81 per cent Cg
- QM 12-23: 6.90 m to 50.10 m, 43.20 m of 3.71 per cent Cg
Based on the historical data from the work completed by Graphicor in the 90’s on the Quatre Milles Graphite Property and given the increasing global demand for graphite, Lomiko Metals is moving forward with its goal to complete both Phase I & II and establish a flake graphite resource at the property by December 2013.

Dr. Dietmar Siebholz – Advisory Board Member
Dr. Siebholz has been researching graphite and graphene developments in Europe and is a significant shareholder of Lomiko. In the spring of 2010, Dr. Siebholz added graphite to the list of minerals he favours for investment. In his opinion, graphite is the technology mineral of the future that should replace common technology resources – at least partially – within the next ten years.
Dr. Siebholz has devoted his attention to the issues of money, currency stability and commodities, precious metals and optimizing investment portfolios. As a result of the development of technologies and the receipt of patents financed by himself and his family, he was offered consulting agreements in 2009. Pursuant to the agreements, he was to prepare the application of pump systems developed by his company for open pit mining in rainy countries (including Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Paraguay) and to start the corresponding application-oriented production of these pump systems.
His current technological interest focuses on the advancement of a revolutionary cooling system and the application of graphite in high-tech developments. However, he remains loyal to his favorites: gold (as currency secured by substance since 1998), silver (as currency secured by substance and technology metal since 2001), rare earths (as technology metals since 2005) as long as there is a trend to expanding high-tech applications. Since 2008, graphite has become an investment focus.
