Does Trump Trade War with China Concern Chinese Flake Graphite Suppliers & Lithium-Ion Battery Makers?


Lomiko Metals Inc. ("Lomiko") ((TSX-V: LMR, OTC:LMRMF, FSE: DH8C))
CEO A. Paul Gill has raised questions on whether recent activity by
graphite suppliers and lithium-ion battery makers indicate concerns
regarding increasing trade tensions between the United States and China.
Lomiko will being it's Fall campaign meet with investors, fund managers
and investment advisors at the Raise Conference
in Vancouver on September 14, 2018.

"It takes 10-15 times more graphite than lithium to create a lithium-ion
battery for any number of uses including electric vehicle batteries.
Leading analyst Industrial Minerals has indicated that Chinese suppliers
of graphite to the electric vehicle market are ‘sold out' of material
indicating possible that stockpiling of the material is occurring.",
states A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals Inc.

Demand for graphite to be used in the battery sector is expected to grow
between now and 2020, driven by a positive outlook and rapid development
of the downstream battery industry, according to Fabrizio Corti,
business director for synthetic graphite at Imerys Graphite & Carbon.
