Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (TSX:CXX)(NYSE Amex:CXZ) announced that initial vanadium recoveries from the metallurgical test work have been received from the Central Mineral Belt (CMB) Property.

The press release is quoted as saying:

Approximately 70 kilograms of core samples from hole ML-182 were submitted to SGS Mineral Services Vancouver, BC (“SGS”) for preliminary metallurgical testing including acid leach, caustic leach and salt roast leach. Sixteen (16) samples from hole ML-182 were composited to provide one sample with a head grade which assayed 0.2% V2O5 and <0.01% U3O8. The sample was then crushed to -10 mesh, blended and split into individual charges for the various metallurgical tests. Although three different test methods were carried out, the four agitated acid leach tests yielded the best results with two samples recovering 92.6% and 93.4% vanadium.
