zenyatta ventures ltd (ZEN) Key Developments

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd Reports Positive Results from Initial Testing of Several High Purity Albany Graphite Samples

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. reported positive results from initial testing of several high purity Albany graphite samples for use in powder metallurgy (‘PM’) application. Testing was conducted at the National Research Council (‘NRC’) in Ottawa, Canada and was partially funded by a federal research grant through the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). Screening results for various properties support suitable use of this unique hydrothermal graphite in the targeted PM application. Zenyatta graphite samples were mixed with steel, copper and lubricant powders to produce a powder metallurgy specimen. The flow properties of the mixture compare favorably with the mixture made with benchmark materials in existing use. In addition, the mechanical properties of the final Zenyatta artifacts, after a sintering heat treatment, were comparable to those of the benchmark artifacts.

Zenyatta Announces Successful Completion & Testing of a Purification Process Yielding Highly Crystalline Graphite from the Albany Deposit

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. announced that it has successfully completed and tested an innovative purification process for production of high purity graphite from the Albany deposit. The work was performed by SGS Canada Inc., where significant progress was made over the last few months improving upon an earlier bench-scale process and designing a distinctive flow sheet specifically for the Albany hydrothermal graphite deposit. The data have been submitted to RPA Inc. for completion of the Preliminary Economic Assessment, which is due soon. Highlights: Zenyatta has designed and tested an innovative process for the production of high purity natural graphite; SGS analyses of all six purified Albany graphite samples yielded greater than 99.9% purity; RPA is in possession of all process flow sheet data and will produce a PEA report in the near term. The SGS test work successfully designed and tested a process that is unique to Zenyatta's Albany deposit. A fully engineered and simplified process (flow sheet) has been completed providing data for crushing, grinding, flotation, residence time, temperature, energy requirements, water treatment, reagent consumption, equipment sizing, mixing, separation and handling. A technically feasible and distinctive process flow sheet was developed to purify the Albany graphite. The continued metallurgical work under a pre-feasibility and full feasibility study has the potential to result in additional optimization. The complete process flow sheet and associated engineering data have now been submitted to RPA for inclusion into the PEA. Zenyatta continues to develop the unique Albany graphite deposit in northern Ontario, Canada. The Project is located 30 km north of the Trans-Canada Highway, with access to the power line and natural gas pipeline near the communities of Constance Lake First Nation and Hearst. A rail line is located 70 km away, with an all-weather road approximately 10 km from the graphite deposit.

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd Announces Initial Screening Shows Albany Graphite Material to be Suitable for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Components

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. announced that a first step screening has occurred on Albany graphite with positive results for use in multiple components for fuel cells. As a second step the Company now plans to work further with a global leader in fuel cell technology to build actual components from high purity Albany graphite. This research into fuel cell innovation is supported by technical and advisory services, and a financial contribution from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). The initial screening by a global company, which is under a confidentiality agreement, was conducted for purity, particle size, corrosion resistance and other desirable properties for use in fuel cells. These tests showed Zenyatta's graphite material to be suitable for use in hydrogen fuel cells with further advanced testing planned. Testing results were obtained from a lab-scale sample provided by SGS Canada Inc. solely for the purpose of providing early evaluation on the suitability and effectiveness of Albany graphite in various applications. Based on research and dialogue with end-users, at this point in time, Zenyatta expects to have a targeted market application segmentation which includes 20-25% for high purity graphite in Fuel Cell products, 25-30% in Lithium-ion batteries and 25-30% in powder metallurgy. Zenyatta commenced a market development program several months ago to initiate validation of Albany graphite in high purity graphite applications. Since the start of this program, the Company has had detailed conversations with more than 35 graphite end-users, academic labs and third party testing facilities in Europe, North America and Asia under confidentiality agreements. Many of these organizations requested a specified amount of purified Albany graphite produced at the SGS Lakefield site during the development of a process flow sheet pursuant to a preliminary economic assessment (`PEA') which is currently being completed. The samples produced at SGS are experimental in nature and may differ slightly from batch to batch and may also differ from the final product in the future. However these samples are representative of the product that could be processed and provide a good initial assessment and guidance for the potential of Albany graphite for various applications. The goal of these initial samples was to screen Albany graphite for suitable applications while gathering feedback from the end-users and testing facilities to improve the overall properties for high value applications. The Company is now starting to receive feedback from several end-users and independent labs, some of which received repeat samples. Information from this initial test program will be used to further define the Company's product and market strategy and set the stage for next steps in development. Zenyatta plans to provide its stakeholders with brief periodic updates on the progress as meaningful information becomes available. A battery is an energy storage device and will stop producing electrical energy when the chemical reactants are consumed or it needs to be recharged. The fuel cell is an energy conversion device and will produce electrical energy as long as the fuel and the oxidant are fed to the electrodes. There are many types of fuel cells used in various end-use applications including transportation, industrial equipment, stationary power generation, back-up power, aerospace and defense. Various fuel cell technologies have been developed to convert many different fuels to electricity at high efficiencies. While fuel cells were first developed in 1960's for niche applications such as generation of power for space vehicles, a large amount of R&D has been conducted over the last fifty years and resulted in much wider use of this technology. It is now considered a "green technology" for use in many applications. Since the fuel cells can be designed to use different forms of fuel, this is one of the technologies for sustainable generation of power in small to medium sized industrial applications.
