Energizer Resources Inc. (TSX:EGZ,OTCQB:ENZR,WKN:A1CXW3) is pleased to announce that it has received results from its FEED Study, which was initiated in September, 2016.
- Value engineering and Front-End Engineering and Design (“FEED”) Study results provide a cost effective solution for a demonstration plant to test and verify the flow sheet design process of the Molo Graphite Project
- Demonstration plant in Madagascar will have an estimated capital cost (CAPEX) of US$7,000,000
- 9-month estimated build time
- Will allow the Company to provide off-takers with multi-tonne, “run of mine” Molo graphite flake concentrate for final product test verification purposes
The FEED study was initiated as a part of a comprehensive value engineering exercise undertaken by the Company in order to examine ways of optimizing the mine plan as envisioned in the Molo Feasibility Study. All costing aspects were examined with the goal of providing a method to produce meaningful, multi-tonne test samples of Molo graphite concentrate to potential off-takers while reducing the CAPEX and time required to the commencement of commercial production.
Under an exploration permit, the Company will initially be limited to an input of 20,000 cubic metres (or approximately 50,000 tonnes) of front-end feed into the demonstration plant for the purposes of verifying the flow sheet design process of the proposed Molo Project mine plan. The Company has already initiated the application process for a mining permit, which upon approval would remove the 20,000 cubic metre test limit. At full capacity, the demonstration plant would be capable of processing 240,000 tonnes of feed per annum. This equates to 30 tonnes per hour of feed, and roughly 1 to 3 tonnes of flake graphite concentrate per hour.
