TORONTO, July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inventus Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE: IVS) (“Inventus” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide details of recent metallurgical work on its 100% owned Pardo property 65 km Northeast of Sudbury, Ontario. The test work was conducted by SGS Canada at their metallurgical lab in Lakefield, Ontario.
The metallurgical test work was conducted on a representative mineralized conglomerate from the 007 Zone (the “Test Sample”) where the first phase of bulk sampling is planned.
- The Test Sample head grade was 6.4 g/t gold.
- A combination of gravity and flotation resulted in 95.2% gold recovery at a 5% mass pull, with a tail assay of 0.3 g/t gold.
- Gravity concentration alone resulted in 42.8% gold recovery at a 0.08% mass pull, and a concentrate grade of 3,087 g/t gold.
- Environmental test work on the gravity plus flotation tails returned <0.05% sulfur and indicated residues would not likely be acid generating.
- These results are very encouraging because it establishes that gravity and flotation processing is probably the preferred treatment method and effectively manages potential environmental issues.
“Our objective with this work was to demonstrate that material from Pardo can be processed at a verity of process facilities. We discovered that low cost gravity plus flotation is highly effective at producing two gold concentrates that would be readily marketable, and that any environmental concerns about the resulting tailings are alleviated,” stated Stefan Spears, Chairman and CEO.
