Trilogy Metals Reports Maiden Inferred Cobalt Resource Estimate Containing 77 Million Pounds of Cobalt at the Bornite Project
Trilogy Metals is pleased to announce the release of a maiden cobalt resource of 77 million pounds of inferred resources for the Bornite Project.
Trilogy Metals (TSX/NYSE American: TMQ) is pleased to announce the release of a maiden cobalt resource of 77 million pounds of inferred resources for the Bornite Project.
As quoted in the press release:
Rick Van Nieuwenhuyse, President and CEO of Trilogy Metals commented, “We are very pleased to report an initial 77 million pound† cobalt resource for our Bornite Project. The metallurgical test work completed to date indicates that ~80 percent to 90 percent of the cobalt reports to the copper tails as cobaltiferous pyrite. This is great because forming a pyrite concentrate from the copper tails should be relatively straight forward using flotation or dense media separation. In the next few months we will complete flotation test work to concentrate cobalt into a pyrite-rich product that can be considered for further upgrading and recovery of cobalt metal at the Bornite site.”
