Jani Kivioja, a research leader at the Nokia Research Center, goes as far to say that graphene will have the same impact on manufacturing as the mass production iron and silicon have had in past eras.

“When we talk about graphene, we’ve reached a tipping point. We’re now looking at the beginning of a graphene revolution,” he says. “Before this point in time, we figured out a way to manufacture cheap iron that led to the Industrial Revolution. Then there was silicon. Now, it’s time for graphene.”

    Lomiko Metals Inc. I completely agree - the next step for us is metallurgy and then trying to convert it to graphene. Mass porduction of graphene is the holy grail and graphite from the mine is removed from the host rock via crushing and flotation (likely but not for sure) and then the graphite recovered is tested for carbon content and finally there are a few methods both chemical and laser that can convert it to graphene. Would love to see this happen. Exciting times!
