Vancouver, British Columbia – Bond Resources Inc. (CSE: BJB) (FSE: 5B1) (the “Company” or “Bond”) is pleased to announce that it has received positive metallurgical results that indicate mineralized material taken from its Mary K Mine project, near Elk City, Idaho, is amenable to a standard gravity plus flotation process.
Preliminary work, conducted by Bureau Veritas Minerals Metallurgical Division, (“BV Minerals”) showed that combined gravity and flotation recoveries of 96.3% gold and 72.7% silver were achievable at a grind size of P80 70-90 microns. The 23 kg test sample assayed 44.3 g/t gold and 16.7 g/t silver prior to processing.
Single pass gravity concentration with cleaning recovered up to 78.5% gold and 33.2% silver into the gravity cleaner concentrate. This concentrate assayed up to 32.9 kg/t gold and 8.2 kg/t silver. After further processing the gravity tailings through a flotation process the combined tailings and concentrate achieved >96% gold recovery and >71% silver recovery.
“We are very pleased with these initial metallurgical results,” commented Joseph Carrabba, President and CEO of Bond Resources. “Particularly noteworthy was the fact that our 23 kg sample assayed in excess of 1.2 oz/ton of gold and most of the contained gold (78%) was recovered though a simple gravity process that concentrated the gold to a grade of nearly 963 oz/ton. BV Minerals has stated that even higher grades can be expected from the gravity circuit in regular plant operations via continuous processing. Naturally, a systematic metallurgical study is still required in order to optimize process conditions and determine design parameters of a recovery plant.”
Details of Test-work
The metallurgical program was designed to evaluate the amenability of a 23 kg gold-and-silver-bearing sample to conventional mineral processing procedures. The sample was taken from the surface exposure of the Mary K vein and is currently the best representation of the vein that can be achieved.
Details of the program steps and conclusions are as follows, summarized/excerpted from the final report provided by BV Minerals:
