Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. (TSXV:ZEN) provided an update on the progress that is being made at its Ontario-based Albany graphite deposit, commenting that RPA Inc. is in the midst of preparing an independent scoping study that will meet the requirements of a preliminary economic assessment.
Metallurgical testing by SGS Canada Inc. (‘SGS’) at Lakefield of two 5 tonne mini-bulk samples from the East and West graphite pipes is ongoing. SGS has requested additional time to complete the metallurgical scale up and optimization of the flow sheet.
Dr. Stephen Mackie of SGS commented:
The test work is proceeding well. At this stage of a mineral project, tweaking of a process flow sheet is quite common and is especially so for Zenyatta’s unique Albany deposit. We expect to develop a distinctive process for this graphite deposit.
