Vancouver, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ceylon Graphite Corp. (“the Company” or “Ceylon Graphite”) (TSX-V: CYL) (OTC: CYLYF) (FSE: CCY) is pleased to announce the renewal of the industrial mining license for the Malsiripura mining project, “ M1” in Sri Lanka from the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau (“GSMB”). The license grants exclusive graphite mining rights within the M1 mining area.

With the M1 permit in hand, the Company expects to extract graphite once the shaft has been deepened twenty feet and traversed to a parallel vein system. The K1 mining project is fully licensed, and the Company is deepening the shaft and doubling its graphite mining capacity.

The recent political turmoil in Sri Lanka earlier this summer has subsided with the appointment of a new president. Operations in Ceylon were not negatively affected, and the Company experienced only a few delays in obtaining the final details of certain permits, but the Company is now able to ramp up activities at both mines.

“The M1 and K1 licenses demonstrate our ability to meet or exceed the requirements set by the GSMB as well as the social license we have developed in Sri Lanka,” said Don Baxter, President and CEO. “With the closing of our recent financing and the approval of the K1 and M1 mining projects, we are now able to accelerate our goal of achieving free cash flow from the lifting of our high-grade, shipping vein graphite. direct from both projects within the next few months. »
