  • 13/11/2015: Global Graphene Technologies (GGT) officially enters into Term Sheet with RS Mines (PVT) Ltd  become the parent company to RS Mines (PVT) Ltd. GGT will be raising capital in the coming months, ahead of its planned ASX listing in late 2017.  The capital will be used to finance a comprehensive drilling plan to confirm the overall value of the Queen’s Mine graphite resource located in Sri Lanka, fully owned by RS Mines, and to achieve JORC compliance reporting standards.

Further capital will be used to develop the resource into one of the most prominent sources for the manufacture of graphene.

With GGT engaging Sydney based SRK Consulting and Indonesian based drilling company Indodrill for quantifying and proofing of RS Mines’, The Queen’s Mine.

Global Graphene Technologies plans to establish a number of graphite and graphene-related subsidiaries in the sectors of micronised crystalline vein graphite supply, graphene oxide supply and energy storage device applications, to capitalise on growing demand for graphene which has the ability to disrupt the markets of solar, medical, and energy storage.

Global Graphene Technologies will be approaching investors in due course who have an interest in graphite, graphene, or mining, and ideally hopes to attract investors who can also bring strategic expertise. In addition to Australia and Sri Lanka, it could attract investors from Canada, the US, the UK, China and Japan as they are nations that have substantial needs for graphene and graphite-related products.
