Arianne Phosphate Inc. (TSXV:DAN) announced that the phosphate concentrate it produced during a recent customer trial program has “a superior grade and lower contaminants” compared to the product it has previously produced.

As quoted in the press release:

Conducted by Corem, an engineering firm specializing in providing a wide range of mineral processing and analytical services to mining companies, the customer trial produced 1.2 tonnes of phosphate concentrate with a grade of 40.0% of P205 and 0.03% of contaminants. These tests were completed by adding an additional step beyond Arianne’s already optimized metallurgical process. The results surpass previous metallurgical test work that had produced a P205 concentrate of 38.8% with 0.089% of contaminants.

Jean-Sebastien David, COO of Arianne, commented:

The results of the customer trial are extremely encouraging and underscore the progress that we continue to make at our Lac à Paul project. Of particular note, the customer trial produced a concentrate with a further reduced presence of aluminum, iron and magnesium in addition to the nearly non-existent levels of some extremely deleterious elements such as uranium and cadmium. We expect that these excellent results will allow us to produce a phosphate concentrate that exceeds the standards needed for commercial applications of our product. Just as important, our latest results confirm our belief that our concentrate will be priced at a premium.
