Halloysite-Kaolin ore recovered from the recent bulk sample drilling conducted at the Carey's Well deposit has been processed through a dry processing plant in Western Australia with favourable results achieved

Successfull Dry Processing Trials of Halloysite-Kaolin

Forty tonnes of halloysite-kaolin ore sourced from recent bulk sample drilling at the Carey's Well deposit located at the Poochera Project in South Australia have been processed by WA Kaolin at their operation in Kwinana, Western Australia with several tonnes of refined halloysite-kaolin produced using dry sorting methods.

The product will now be thoroughly tested and sampled by end users for commercial evaluation.

In addition, approximately 140 tonnes of halloysite-kaolin ore is currently at Port Adelaide and is soon to be shipped to China for comemrcial trials with a large Chinese kaolin processor.

The bulk sample program along with feedback from Australian and Chinese testing is a key step forward in the development of the Poochera Halloysite-Kaolin Project.

Advancing the halloysite-kaolin potential from Carey's Well is a crucial step in Andromeda Metals' strategy, whilst continuing to prove the material up as a premium High Purity Alumina (HPA) feedstock.
