SLAM Announces Flotation Results
SLAM Exploration Ltd. (SXL.V) today announced results from laboratory flotation tests completed on Nepisiguit A-Zone core samples. The tests were completed by RPC Science & Engineering ("RPC") of Fredericton, NB. The A-Zone is part of SLAM's wholly-owned Nepisiguit Project where SLAM recently announced a new 3M tonne NI-43-101 compliant inferred resource in New Brunswick.
The RPC tests indicate recoveries of 96% zinc, 80% copper, 75% lead and 68% silver are attainable. The head grade of the test sample was 5.88% zinc, 1.53% lead, 0.43% copper and 52 g/t silver. A total of 9 flotation tests were carried out with a variety of recovery techniques. Results indicate that bulk copper/lead flotation followed by zinc flotation would be the best option for the treatment of the Nepisiguit deposit.
