Barns metallurgical results deliver 97% plus gold recovery
97% gold recoveries have been achieved on three separate composited samples from the Barns deposit.
The composites comprise one supergene and two primary zone samples. Total gold recovery results were consistent across the three ore types using a conventional gravity and cyanide leach flowsheet.
Bureau Veritas Minerals Pty Ltd, an independent organisation, also conducted bottle roll (heap leach simulation) and flotation tests at their laboratory in Perth, Western Australia.
These initialt metallurgical results add further confidence to the potential economic value of the Barns deposit.
The previously released Mineral Resource estimate for the Barns deposit is 2.11 million tonnes at 1.6g/t gold for 107,000 ounces of gold using a cut-off grade of 0.5g/t gold.
In addition, exploration drilling was recently completed at nearby Baggy Green with results pointing to a potential increase in the local resource base.
An independent Mineral Resource estimation for Baggy Green, and a rapidly emerging Wudinna Gold Camp, has commenced.
