Archer Exploration Ltd to develop new graphene based products
The Campoona project is Archer's most advanced graphite project

Archer Exploration Ltd (ASX:AXE) has entered into an agreement with the Australian Research Council (ARC) to collaborate on the ARC Graphene Research Hub.

The aim of the ARC Graphene Research Hub is to provide leading knowledge, innovative research and development for the commercialisation of graphene research.

This is to create future carbon based high-tech industries and technologies across broad sectors.

The main aim of Archer’s work is the development of scalable graphene production processes for the company’s numerous graphite deposits.

Importantly, the worldwide consumption of graphene is expected to grow exponentially as more uses are found and graphene products are developed.

The ARC Graphene Research Hub is funded by the Australian Government, through the Australian Research Council’s Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme.

Under the agreement between Archer and the other ARC Graphene Research Hub participants, Archer will participate in many projects including:

- Development of a series of graphene based products to establish lab/pilot scale graphene production; and
- develop processes for the scalable production of high quality graphene and the optimisation of production rate, yield, quality, purity, environmental impact, cost and sustainability;

The Campoona project is the most advanced of Archer's Eyre Peninsula Graphite projects.

Archer has lodged a mining lease application (MLA) for the Campoona graphite mine and associated miscellaneous purpose licences for the Sugarloaf graphite and graphene processing facility.

As part of the MLA, Archer is seeking approval for the manufacture of up to 100 tonnes per annum of graphene.

The company is anticipating the grant of the mining tenements by the end of the current quarter.
