Elcora Resources Corp. (TSXV:ERA) put out the results of the first stage of tests aimed at determining whether graphite from the Ragedara mine is suitable “for the production of high expansion ratio expandable graphite.”

Highlights include:

  • Samples have successfully been produced to allow progression to secondary size reduction tests scheduled to be conducted Oct 23 and 24 2014.
  • An important first step towards the eventual target of producing pristine graphite crystals for the next stage of size reduction has been achieved.
  • The high rate of flotation indicates that crowded froth flotation could be an effective mechanism of producing high grades early in the circuit.
  • Successful flotation without reagents at both high grade and recoveries indicates that a scalping circuit could be used resulting in less circuit complexity and lower capital costs.

Troy Grant, president and CEO of Elcora, commented:

The accelerated pace at which we are streamlining the proposed production process for Ragedara, and lab testing the ability to produce graphene and other high-value materials from the Ragedera graphite is highly exciting for the Company and shareholders, and these milestones should create demonstrable future value for the shareholders.
