Montreal, Quebec, November 19, 2018 – SRG Graphite Inc. (TSXV: SRG) (“SRG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion and subsequent opening of its metallurgical laboratory near the Lola Graphite Deposit in Guinea, West Africa.
The laboratory will serve many purposes such as small-scale graphite production to pursue business development and continue to evaluate the properties of the deposit’s graphite, training of the local technical workforce, and education of local communities about the project. The laboratory will also be used for sample preparation for exploration, geotechnical metallurgical testing and vendor tests, as well as further tests for process development.
“The construction and commissioning of this laboratory is only a small example of what our local team has accomplished to date. It will be a great tool for exploration as well as business and process development, which we are putting to use immediately,” said Raphaël Beaudoin, P.Eng., VP Operations, Metallurgy and Process Design. “It will not only help the team complete the ongoing feasibility study, but it will also help us prepare for the next steps including construction, production, and future business endeavours.”

The laboratory houses many features like a full sample preparation facility including drying, crushing and pulverizing; and a complete mineral processing facility with scrubbing and milling, attrition milling, flotation, filtration and drying. It is also equipped to perform basic graphite assaying with acid wash and “Lost on ignition” (LOI) method. The building was design with sufficient space for training and a small-scale production of graphite samples for business development.
SRG is also proud to say that, apart from the technical equipment which was imported from top-of-the-line suppliers, 100% of the building and facilities were sourced and constructed locally. SRG wants to thank everyone who helped bring this very important project to fruition.
SRG is a Canadian-based company focused on developing mineral deposits located in the Republic of Guinea, West Africa. SRG is committed to operating in a socially, environmentally, and ethically responsible manner.
