Zenyatta Ventures Ltd - ZEN.v

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd - ZEN.v is developing the flagship Albany Graphite Deposit in Northern Ontario.

The hydrothermal graphite deposit has been able to achieve a carbon purity result of >99.9 percent in bench-scale tests using an environmentally safe method of purification.

On May 16, 2017 the company released NEWS

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. (“Zenyatta” or “Company”) (TSXV: ZEN) is pleased to announce the successful testing of the Company’s graphene oxide material by a leading U.S. based advanced materials company (‘U.S. Co.’) developing silicon-graphene anodes for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. Preliminary results show ease of processing with Zenyatta’s graphene oxide and similar electrochemical performance compared to the control material that is currently being used by U.S. Co. The superior dispersion qualities and good electrochemical performance of the Company’s graphene oxide are desirable properties for this silicon-graphene battery application. Zenyatta’s high-purity graphite was recently converted to graphene oxide by Dr. Aicheng Chen, Professor at Lakehead University, and then sent to the U.S. Co. for testing as an advanced nano-material in a new Lithium-ion battery.
