June 2, 2020, Vancouver – Ceylon Graphite Corp. (“Ceylon Graphite”) (TSX-V: CYL) (OTC: CYLYF) (FSE: CCY) is pleased to announce its first sale of graphite from its wholly owned subsidiary, Sarcon Development (Pvt) Ltd (“Sarcon Development”), since the commencement of commercial production in December 2019.
The sale, which was for 1 ton of vein graphite with Carbon content of 95-97%, was to 2D Materials Pte Ltd (“2D Materials”) of Singapore. 2D Materials purchased the graphite to evaluate it for its graphene production needs. The shipment is expected to ship immediately.
“We are excited by this first order,” said Bharat Parashar, Chief Executive Officer. “We know from our own testing and the historical record of Sri Lankan graphite that we have a high-quality vein graphite. This is the next step in accelerating our production rate to enable us to fulfill the needs of multiple customers.”
Sri Lankan graphite is recognized as amongst the purest in the world, which combined with a low cost of production, makes it ideal for many uses, most notably when upgraded to battery-grade graphite for lithium ion batteries and for the burgeoning market of graphene applications.
Ceylon Graphite’s K1 mine entered commercial production in December 2019 with exploration continuing at its other selected sites. Sarcon Development has control of 121 Grids in Sri Lanka.
