Sandfire Resources has released an update on activities at the Black Butte copper underground project in Montana.
Sandfire Resources (TSXV:SFR) has released an update on activities at the Black Butte copper underground project in Montana, where the company carried out a 2018 Spring drilling program focused on recovering mineralized core for further metallurgical test work.
A total of 2,011 kilograms of mineralized core has been prepared for metallurgical testing at Base Metallurgical Laboratories in Kamloops, British Columbia. The results of this test work will support the design of the proposed process flow sheet for the processing plant which is an integral component of the Bankable Feasibility Study, and will allow modelling of recoverable copper within the mineralized zones to optimize scheduling.
Interim CEO and Vice President of Project Development Rob Scargill said:
“The company is pleased to see the Black Butte Copper underground project progressing in such a consistently positive direction. We look forward to reaching the construction phase of this project and implementing our vision, which is consistent with our community’s stewardship council’s vision, of a project that has a net positive effect economically, socially, and environmentally.”
