Seabridge calculates the gold resources on their homepage with a a 70% gold recovery rate in reality they managed a Mitchel gold recovery rate about 50% with pilot plant circumstances sea last "pre-feasibility study".It could be even less in reality and then it could be the fact that Seabridge Gold will have to increase their cutoff and will loose parts of their resources. Additional they looked since 2008 (?) at the possibility of recovering economically significant quantities of rhenium. We never heard about that. Additional it would be interesting to see the metallurgical testing results of the joint study KSM/Snowfield. We never heard about that.
There is one point left, when Seabridge Gold loudly announced a joint study with pretium there was a delay in the metallurgical tests. After the study with Seabridge Gold., whose KSM project shares a common boundary with their Snowfield Project, has been finalized. Pretium decided not to expend further funds on the project until 2022.
Seabridge Gold never released the study or the metallurgical test work.
