Flinders Resources Limited (TSXV:FDR) , through its President and CEO, Mr. Martin McFarlane, provided an update on the activities that are underway at its Sweden Woxna Graphite Mine.
As quoted in the press release:
- Pumping water from the Woxna mine pit has continued through winter and the depth of the water remaining is now minimal. The process to empty the pit is effectively complete.
- Golder Associates of Sweden has delivered a mining plan for the Kringel graphite mineral resource outlining 4 phases of graphite mining over more than 20 years. The plan is being evaluated by Flinders and has been sent to mining contractors for pricing.
- GBM Mineral Engineering Consultants (“GBM”) has designed a new process flow sheet for the Woxna process plant. While it largely relies on existing equipment, certain enhancements have been made which are intended to improve recoveries of large flake, increase graphite purity and overall graphite recovery.
- Bulk samples of fresh graphite mineralisation from the Kringel deposit have been extracted and sent to flotation specialist Aminpro Metallurgical Laboratories in Chile to run a series of graphite processing tests to optimise grinding characteristics and verify flake size, purity and recovery results that are forecast to be achieved from the proposed process flow sheet for the Woxna project. The test results are due in April.
