Malachite’s Tin Mining Plans Boosted by Results of Dry Processing Test Work

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Malachite Resources Limited advises that it has received encouraging results from new metallurgical test work, involving dry processing, conducted on a bulk sample of the Karaula Lead alluvial tin deposit1 at the University of Aachen in Germany.
Managing Director, Garry Lowder, summed up the new results by saying: “This is a very promising step forward for our Elsmore Project and it has been well worth waiting for. The biggest problems in wet processing alluvial deposits generally are getting hold of enough water in the first place and then disposing of the slimes generated in washing the alluvium afterwards.
By removing the fine dusty material that creates the slime problem and drastically reducing the amount of material to be washed into final product, the dry processing step virtually eliminates the sliming issue. This should translate into substantially reduced capital and operating costs and greatly facilitate the Government approvals process.”
