MRL Heads of Agreement to Pursue Graphene Commercialisation Outcomes


Heads of Agreement (“HoA”) signed with Imagine Intelligent Materials Pty Ltd (“IMAGINE”), an Australian graphene enhanced advanced materials solutions company. 

The agreement will identify commercial applications for MRL’s graphite and graphene. 

Access to graphene testing and characterisation through IMAGINE’s Certification Program

Collaboration with leading Australian universities with whom IMAGINE has existing relationships, for up-scaling of graphene testing and characterisation of graphene products.

Working with IMAGINE’s certified partners and customers pursuing a strategy to access the full spectrum of the graphene value chain through.

Following on from the ASX release of 13 May 2015, in which the Company disclosed that the University of Adelaide had achieved outstanding results on the recovery of graphene from MRL’s highgrade graphite ore, the directors are pleased to announce a significant step in the process to maximise the return on its Sri Lankan Graphite Projects. 

The signing of the HoA between MRL and IMAGINE will give the Company access to a network of advanced manufacturing enterprises and scientific expertise that would not normally be available to a junior mining company. MRL’s graphite projects in Sri Lanka have very high grade vein ore. 

The key challenge in the generation of commercially valuable graphene is the ability to produce consistent and replicable graphene functionalised to meet the requirements of industrial customers. IMAGINE brings knowledge of high volume market applications the understanding of solutions development processes and its own intellectual property. 

The proposed Co-operative agreements between MRL and Imagine are intended to maximise revenue opportunities for both parties through develop premium price graphene solutions for high volume industrial markets.
