TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 11, 2022 / Gratomic Inc. ("Gratomic", "GRAT," or the "Company") (TSXV:GRAT)(OTCQX:CBULF)(FSE:CB82) announces the ongoing commissioning of several key pieces of equipment in preparation for the final commissioning stage of the grinding, flotation, and drying circuits. The Product Thickener assembly has been completed, including the lining of the tank inner walls with antiabrasive coating. The commissioning of this equipment consists of operating the rake, to ensure that the turning movement is clear and responsive to the speed controls.
The vibrating feeder has been installed and is ready for calibration. This feeds into Cleat Conveyor number five, which will feed the recently installed and operational feed bin to the rod mill. This ensures that the belt is properly assembled and moving without interference and responsive to the controls. Belt Conveyor number six and its vibrating plate, which runs from the feedbin to the feed hopper of the rod mill, is ready for testing.
The material from the historical stockpiles is in the process of being relocated to the feed pad next to the grizzly, which separates the smaller lumps of graphite from the larger lumps, in preparation for the next stage of wet commissioning. In this process, material will be fed through the inlet into the first section of the circuit and run through the entire circuit from the beginning to the end of the system.
Please see HERE for video footage of commissioning progress.
Armando Farhate, COO & Head of Graphite Marketing and Sales, says, "Our Aukam construction team has demonstrated resilience in the face of adversity. Even during the holiday period, they never stopped finding ways to push our project forward and keep us ahead of the game."
"Since the beginning, the Company has established a pattern of creative approaches to mining and exploration. Over the past 18 months, our team in Namibia has continued to make great strides towards project completion. Their exceptional effort has kept us on track throughout the construction and commissioning phases," says Arno Brand CEO & President.
Gratomic is focused on introducing an exceptional anode material to the global electric vehicle and energy storage supply chains. True to its roots as an exploration and mining company, Gratomic aims to achieve full operational capabilities in 2022 on its Aukam Graphite Project and continues to diversify its assets into a multi-national company with various projects globally. Large quantities of its naturally high-quality vein graphite have been shipped for testing to confirm its viability as an anode material. Gratomic is confident that the results will provide a unique competitive advantage in its desired target markets.
The Company's recent collaboration agreement with Forge Nano has advanced the developments on its graphite finalization phase for the micronization, spheronization, and the patented ALD coating of its Aukam vein graphite for use in lithium-ion batteries. Forge Nano is a global leader in surface engineering and precision nano-coating technology, using Atomic Layer Deposition.

Low rates and high inflation make cash tough to hold. Look here instead.
The automotive sector is in the midst of an enormous change. A combination of social and political forces are pushing the industry more and more toward adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) as a new standard – although the internal combustion engine is not likely to be fully phased out, EVs are certain to find a large niche. ‘Last mile’ delivery, and various fleet businesses are already finding that EVs can meet their needs efficiently. But the electric car market isn’t just about cars. They may g
This month marks an anniversary of sorts, as it was three years ago that the current bull market got started. Aside from the short, albeit deep, turndown in Feb/March of 2020, when the corona truck hit us, stock markets have been rising steadily since January 2019. And despite the pandemic, the market’s rate of increase was steeper after the short 2020 recession than before it. In a recent note, Raymond James CIO Larry Adam says it’s time to ‘adjust our aim’ to take into account the dynamics of
Buy the dip, wrote J.P. Morgan’s strategists early this past week. Yes, the U.S. inflation rate just hit 7%, the highest since 1982, back when E.T. was phoning home and the rich kid on my street got a Commodore 64 computer—his old man worked for IBM. J.P. Morgan compares now with late 2018, when rate increases sparked a stock selloff, and the Fed later reversed course.
