They will be the honoured guests at Ceylon Graphite’s reception in Colombo and will be joined by Sri Lankan political and business leaders. The reception will also acknowledge the history of significant investment in Sri Lanka by Ceylon founder, Toronto-based Sasha Jacob and Jacob Capital Management Inc., as well as the revitalization of global demand for pure vein graphite through his efforts. The honoured guests will then travel to the company’s first priority historic mine site to cut the ribbon symbolizing the restart of commercial operations of Sri Lanka historic graphite sites.
“We are delighted to host Mayor Tory and Canadian officials as we bring new investment to Sri Lanka,” said Bharat Parashar, Chief Executive Officer of Ceylon Graphite Corp. “Sri Lanka has long had the world’s best resource for pure vein graphite and we will soon have one of the world’s largest mines of its kind, providing the key resource in lithium ion batteries for the burgeoning electric car market.”
