Sama Resources Inc./Ressources Sama Inc. (TSXV:SME) reported that the first metallurgical test performed at Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ontario, Canada has returned high-quality graphite concentrate with as high as 96-percent graphite recovery. This metallurgical test represents the first in a series of proposed laboratory tests designed to define the grade and recovery of the final graphite concentrate.
As quoted in the press release:
Sama will continue to define and develop the Lola Graphite project on its own, however it is currently pursuing discussions for a partnership with known graphite developers and producers in order to accelerate the path to production. Sama has launched a 4,000m drilling program designed to establish the mineral resources within the oxide material with its two 100% owned Jacro drill rigs.
Sama’s president and CEO, Dr. Marc-Antoine Audet, said:
We are pleased with these impressive results from the initial test. It is a clear indication of the very high potential of the Lola Graphite mineralization. A series of additional tests are planned in order to refine and further improve the already excellent recovery and grade of the graphite concentrate.
