Lomiko Public Statement (August 6th, 2023):
Lomiko is a people-first operator of choice in Quebec exploring and developing its natural flake graphite and lithium properties for a North American climate success story
What does it mean to be people-first?
We believe in excellence. Climate success stories are built by Canadians and First Nations where communities benefit directly from our natural flake graphite project in Southern Quebec.
We respect the concerns of communities and will continue to listen to and respond to all concerns and questions. We acknowledge that more education is needed on developing domestic critical minerals for our Electric Vehicle future.
What is our vision for the Laurentides region?
A Plan Sud that is unique for the region, where Lomiko becomes a valued member of the community as an environmental project – a climate success story. We co-exist and contribute to economic and social well being in the community. The carbon footprint of the operation is reduced to zero or less. Our vision is to monitor, maintain and become active stewards of lake water quality in the region. Graphite processing isn’t one that usually impacts water quality as it is one of the materials used to purify the water.
Lomiko’s PEA establishes it will contribute over $130m in wages to the local community and $240m taxes
