Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN) reported additional excellent metallurgical results from tests at the Kakula Discovery, in a southerly portion of the Kamoa-Kakula Copper Project in the Congo Republic. Test results yielded copper recoveries of 87.8 percent and produced a concentrate with an extremely high grade of 56 percent copper.
As quoted in the press release:

The bench-scale metallurgical flotation test work carried out at XPS Consulting and Testwork Services laboratories in Falconbridge, Canada, achieved copper recoveries of 87.8% and produced a concentrate with an extremely high grade of 56% copper using the flowsheet developed during the Kamoa pre-feasibility study (PFS). The material tested was a composite of recent, chalcocite-rich Kakula drill core, assaying 8.1% copper.
“These new Kakula metallurgical test results are highly positive as they indicate that, by employing a conventional milling and flotation process, Kakula should produce an extremely high-grade and clean copper concentrate that would be highly coveted by copper smelters around the world,” said Vongani Nkuna, Kamoa’s Senior Process Engineer. “The XPS metallurgical results further demonstrate the high quality of the Kakula Discovery.”
