IRW-PRESS: Asante Gold Corp.: Mineral results obtained from Metso Outotec
The results were very positive:
Gold can be easily accessed from relevant composite drill core samples via conventional cyanide leaching with an achievable gold recovery rate of over 90%.
– Improved yield (up to 97%) can be achieved by reducing ore grinding to 80%-53M. Fine grinding to 80%-10M showed a further increase in the overall gold recovery rate to 99%, based on the selected values of the head content.
Samples are considered highly susceptible to quality improvement by gravity, with 59% to 38% of the gold recovered in the center of gravity in relevant gravity tests.
Appropriate improvement of gravity tailings quality was achieved by flotation with an average mass flow rate of 12%.
– The following average grades of gold were determined for the three mixtures: Mix 1: 6.6 g/t, Mix 2: 16.7 g/t and Mix 3: 11.4 g/t.
– Bond Ball Work Index ranged between 15.7 and 16.8 kWh/ton
Metso Outotec concluded that the test provided sufficient data to produce a conceptual operational level and a cost-of-capital study based on core drilling samples provided by Kubi. Metso Outotec is a leader in sustainable technologies, solutions and comprehensive services for the mineral processing, mineral refining and aggregate industries worldwide.
Asante is focused on bringing the Kubi gold mine back into production. Test work indicates that Kubi mineralization can help set up an on-site processing facility. Alternatively, the material can be brought to Bibiani, mixed with material from our Bibiani gold mine and processed at our 2.7 million tpa CIL facility in Bibiani.
