Graphite Stocks Alert: LOMIKO (TSX.V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF) RECEIVES DRILLING PERMIT FOR QUATRE MILLES GRAPHITE PROPERTY

Vancouver BC - June 22, 2012 (InvestorIdeas.com Newswire) LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX-V:LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE: DH8B www.lomiko.com) (the "Company") announces that Lomiko has received a drilling permit and is preparing for the upcoming drilling at the Quatre Milles East Property.

Consul-Teck has proposed a budget of $307, 028 for Phase I and a contingent $724,041 for Phase II for work for the property in the technical report. Lomiko's drilling will focus on verifying the areas of historical high-grade graphite intersected previously by Graphicor on the property. The historical results are detailed below. It is Lomiko's goal to complete both Phase I & II and establish a flake graphite resource at the Quatre Milles Property by December 2012.
Future Markets Inc published "The World Market for Graphene" in October 2011. A summary of the Report's contents indicates:
"Graphene has moved swiftly from the research laboratory to the marketplace, driven by demand from markets where advanced materials are required. These include the aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy storage, solar, oil service, and lubricant sectors. The distinctive electronic, thermal and mechanical properties of graphene make it a potentially disruptive technology across a raft of industries. In 2010, there were over 400 patents issued on graphene and 3,000 research papers published. The European Union is funding a 10 year 1,000 million euro coordination action on graphene. South Korea is set to spend $350 million on commercialization initiatives and the United Kingdom has announced investment of £50million in a new commercialization hub."
Lomiko Metals In conjunction with Visual Capitalist has developed a Graphene Infographic for the use of investors.

Lomiko's Quatre Milles Graphite Property
The Quatre Milles Property is road accessible and is located approximately 175 km northwest of Montreal and 17 km due north of the village of Sainte-Veronique, Quebec. The property consists of 28 contiguous claims totaling approximately 1,600 hectares.
The property was originally staked and explored by Graphicor Resources Inc. ("Graphicor") in the summer of 1989 based on the results of a regional helicopter-borne EM survey. The underlying geology consists of intercalated biotite gneiss, biotite feldspar gneiss, marble, quartzite and calc-silicate lithologies of the Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville Province.
Historical Highlights
Graphicor completed reconnaissance mapping and prospecting as well as ground geophysics and a 26 hole diamond drill program totaling 1,625 metres. The work identified several conductive trends in the central portion of the property and at least three, relatively flat lying graphitic beds. Three surface samples were collected and analyzed returning results of 14.16% Cgf, 18.06% Cgf and 20.35% Cgf. 23 of the initial 26 drill holes intersected graphite concentrations with graphite concentration in range of 4.69% in hole Q90-1 to a highlight of 8.07% Cgf over 28.60 metres in hole Q90-7. The highest individual assay was reported in hole Q90-10 reporting 15.48% Cgf over 0.50 metres. A table of results from the 43-101 indicates:
Investorideas.com Newswire Investorideas.com Newswire The Company cautions that it has not had the chance to verify the quality and accuracy of the historic sampling and drilling results reported in this news release which predate the introduction of NI 43-101 and cautions readers not to rely upon them. The historic figures were generated from sources believed to be reliable, however, they have not been confirmed. Although the sampling and drilling results are relevant, they have not been verified.
Graphite Market
  • The price for flake graphite is $ 2000-$4000 per tonne depending on flake size and grade.
  • Graphite prices have been increasing in recent months and over the last couple of years prices for large flake, high purity graphite (+80 mesh, 94-97%C) have more than doubled.
  • Graphite prices have almost tripled since 2005 due to the ongoing industrialization of China, India and other emerging economies and resultant strong demand from traditional steel and automotive markets.
  • Demand for graphite is expected to rise as electric vehicles and lithium battery technology are adopted, nuclear reactors are built in China, and if fuel cells and graphene patents become products.
  • China, which produces about 70 per cent of the world's graphite, is seeing production and export growth leveling, and export taxes and a licensing system have been instituted.
  • Europe and the USA have both indicated graphite is of economic importance and has a supply risk (Critical Raw Materials for the EU, July 2010).
Graphite Facts
  • Natural graphite comes in several forms: flake, vein, amorphous and lump.
  • Southwestern Quebec is host to some of the most favorable geological terrain for graphite exploration in Canada and is known to host graphite resources, including the nearby Lac Des Iles mine operated by Timcal.
  • Graphite has many important new applications such as lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, and nuclear and solar power that have the potential to create significant incremental demand growth.
  • There is roughly 20-30 times more graphite by weight needed to produce a lithium-ion battery than there is lithium.
  • Of the 1.2 million tonnes of graphite produced annually, approximately 40 per cent is of the most desirable flake type.
  • li> High-growth, high-value graphite applications require large-flake and high-purity graphite which is the prime exploration and development target at the Quatre Milles Property.
Near-Term Strategy
Lomiko plans to mount an aggressive exploration campaign on the Quatre Milles Graphite Property commencing with a complete compilation of historic geologic work followed by surface mapping, prospecting and follow-up diamond drilling.

Gold and Mining Stocks; Gold Bullion (TSX-V: GBB) announces additional positive drill data update

VANCOUVER - June 19, 2012 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks Newswire) - Gold Bullion Development Corp. (TSXV: GBB, OTC PINK: GBBFF) (the "Company" or "Gold Bullion") is pleased to announce additional drill results from several holes located throughout the mineralized area of the Granada Gold Property. The subject property is located along the prolific Cadillac trend in northwestern Quebec , 5 km south of the city of Rouyn-Noranda.

Of the 17 holes, 14 reported significant gold mineralization with hole GR-11-389 at 0.53 g/t Au over 95.0 metres from 72.0 metres to 167.0 metres confirming continuity of the mineralized package near surface inclusive of three discrete higher-grade zones. Hole GR-11-389 was drilled in the Southeast direction to confirm mineralization and assist in the exact positioning of the NNE fault displacing the mineralized blocks between sections.
These assay results are from the 2011 drill program and continue to demonstrate low-grade, high tonnage, near surface intersections while confirming specific high-grade zone at depth with thickness and grade suitable for underground mining.
Highlights include GR-11-260 with 4.87 g/t Au over 3.89 metres at depth while near surface hole GR-11-272 reported 0.39 g/t Au over 129.0 metres from 112.0 metres to 241.0 metres. Gold Bullion's CEO Frank Basa is very encouraged by results that consistently demonstrate the presence of widespread significant gold mineralization on the Granada property. Further details on the mineralized holes inclusive of substantive drill data are summarized in the table below.
Investorideas.com Newswire Investorideas.com Newswire Only three holes, GR-11-364, GR-11-251 and E-11-06 did not cut significant mineralization as follows: GR-11-364 was northwest and too short to intersect the zone while both GR-11-251 and E-11-06 were intended to test the Eastern extension and may not have been suitably located to cut the zones due to the NE shift of mineralized blocks caused by the NNE Faults.
Additional assay results are pending and will be released as they become available.
Claude Duplessis , Eng. is acting as the qualified person (QP) for Gold Bullion Development Corp. in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the technical contents of this press release.
Investor Relations Agreement Terminated
