Sama Resources (TSXV:SME) reported results from a third series of laboratory scale metallurgical tests at its Lola graphite project.
As quoted in the press release:

Results from the flotation test indicate that 70% of the concentrate is made of superjumbo, jumbo and large flakes sizes. Superjumbo flake size accounts for 24% of the concentrate with purities of 92.7% and 95.5% graphitic carbon (”Cg”).
The Lola Graphite deposit covers an area of over 8.7 km long by 300 meters (“m”) wide at surface, and with a potential width of up to 1,000 m. Graphite flakes are free within the weathered gangue for the first 20 m or so (also called the oxide zone) of the deposit, thereby allowing for easy grinding and optimal recovery of all superjumbo, jumbo and large flakes.
The current and the two previous metallurgical test results (reference Sama’s press release dated July 8, 2014 and January 13, 2015), indicate very high recovery of superjumbo, jumbo and large flake sizes, at 60%, 78% and 70% respectively.

Dr. MarcAntoine Audet, president and CEO of Sama Resources, said:

This is our third simple flotation test and we are seeing big improvements in both flake size and purity. These impressive results validate the quality of the asset and we are confident that further testing using a simple flotation process will provide even better results.
