Buchans Minerals Corporation (TSXV:BMC) announced manganese recoveries of up to 96% based on leaching tests of samples from the Plymouth Manganese Deposit.

As quoted in the press release:

Thibault further report that they have achieved manganese recoveries for the Composite Sample of up to 89% using a sulphuric acid leach and up to 96% using a reducing acid leach. Further tests are on-going to optimize the leach conditions and recoveries.

Buchans Minerals’ President and CEO, Warren MacLeod said:

The results are very much above our expectations, particularly the recovery using sulphuric acid as such a process is metallurgically less complex and offers an operating cost advantage over alternative hydrometallurgical processing technologies.
