TORONTO, Oct. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- African Gold Group, Inc. (AGG.V) (“AGG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that a world renowned metallurgical test facility has been contracted to help optimize both gold recovery and project economics at the Kobada Gold project. SENET, the EPCM company managing the Definitive Feasibility study for AGG, has contracted Maelgwyn Mineral Services Africa (“MMSA”) to conduct metallurgical testing of material from our Kobada project. MMSA is a world-renowned metallurgical test facility, specializing in optimizing process conditions and flowsheets.
“We are pleased to support SENET and AGG on the Kobada Gold project,” commented Hennie Stallknecht, Metallurgical Manager MMSA. “Our aim is to re-evaluate different process options and to optimize the best process flow in terms of gold recovery and project economics through the execution of detailed and quality test work. Variability samples from the ore body will also be tested to provide the information required for economic and block-modelling of the project. Samples to commence the test work have already been shipped to MMSA in Johannesburg, South Africa."
“We are delighted to have MMSA on board to undertake the detailed test work on the Kobada orebody,” comments Danny Callow, Chief Operating Officer for AGG. “We will undertake detailed test work on representative composite samples taken from across the concession and test the most optimal process for the design of the future Kobada metallurgical plant.”
All metallurgical samples shipped from the Kobada mine site have arrived at MMSA and are undergoing metallurgical testing to identify the optimal processing technique for our specific type of ore.
