Albany Graphite Deposit:            

  • ZEN Graphene Solutions has discovered the largest and very rare ultra high-purity
    graphite deposit in Northern Ontario called the Albany Graphite Deposit.
  • Albany contains the largest and only high purity hydrothermal (volcanic in nature)
    graphite mineralization being developed in the world.  
  • High purity graphite is gaining prominence at a time when Zen discovered a very rare
    hydrothermal graphite deposit, which can be upgraded with very good crystallinity without the
    use of aggressive acids and high temperature thermal treatment.
  • Zen has discovered an easy and environmentally friendly process that consist of grinding, floating and caustic treatment using sodium hydroxide.
  • The company has been able to achieve an ‘extraordinary’ carbon purity result of  >99.9 percent in bench-scale tests, using this proprietary and environmentally safe method of purification
