Ceylon Graphite expertise at work

Ceylon Graphite is a public company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (CYL:TSX-V) currently exploring and developing graphite mines in historic resource jurisdictions in Sri Lanka. It holds a land package constituting 121 km² grids containing historic vein graphite deposits.

These unique and comparatively higher-margin vein (lump) deposits currently make up less than 1% of world graphite production.

Our cells should be called Nickel-Graphite, because primarily the cathode is nickel and the anode side is graphite with silicon oxide… [there’s] a little bit of lithium in there, but it’s like the salt on the salad.

Ceylon Graphite Announces New Discovery M1 Site

May 14th , 2019, Vancouver – Ceylon Graphite Corp. (“Ceylon Graphite”) (TSX-V: CYL) (OTC: CYLYF) (FSE: CCY) today announced the discovery of a new, natural  crystalline graphite vein over 30 cm in width, 10 feet  downhole at its M1 site in the Malsiripura area in Sri Lanka. This vein was discovered in the normal course of digging a ventilation shaft at the M1 site and samples from the discovery have been sent to the Sri Lankan Government’s Geological Survey and Mines Bureau’s laboratory for testing.

“We are delighted at this discovery; it shows that our mapping is correct and that we anticipate a major find as shown in blue above. We now have identifiable graphite at the surface and below the surface in the overburden. A 30 cm (one foot) vein is impressive by any standards.” said Bharat Parashar, Chief Executive Officer.

“This discovery coupled with the veins we discovered earlier in the year at our other sites clearly demonstrates that Ceylon Graphite has a large resource base. We feel the M1 site will be one of the largest in Sri Lanka. Our plan to start commercial production at our K1 site imminently is nearing fructification and we hope to start producing at M1 by the fourth quarter.”
