NEVADO Announces Beginning of Bench-Scale Mineral Processing Study on La Blache 200-kg Ti-V-Fe Sample
December 18, 2013 (Source: Marketwired) — NEVADO RESOURCES CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:VDO)(FRANKFURT:NSV) (“NEVADO” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Kunming Metallurgical Research Institute of China Yunnan Metallurgical Group Co., Ltd (“Kunming China”) has begun a Bench-Scale Mineral Processing Study on a 200-kg sample of La Blache Ti-V-Fe rich material.
Kunming China will start the Bench-Scale Mineral Processing Study by examining the mineralogy of the sample and determining the grinding fineness (comminution study) to liberate Ti-V-Fe minerals and gangs from the sample matrix. A comminution study is one of the most demanding mineral processing technology because selection of the correct crushing and grinding process and equipment guarantees a successful separation process. The first stage of the study is defining the energy consumption of the sample, as well as a mineral liberation study to determine the correct grind size. The second stage of the study is defining the mineral separation efficiency, which Kunming China will carry out through a physical separation method (mainly magnetic and gravity separation to concentrate magnetite-Ti-V minerals) and a surface chemistry method (mainly flotation to concentrate ilmenite-Mg minerals) (collectively, the “Kunming Process”).
Kunming China will then issue to NEVADO the Bench-Scale Mineral Processing Study Report with conclusions and recommendations.
