Critical Metals

Nevada Clean Magnesium Inc. (TSXV:NVM) announced that it has engaged Silvertip Design NW to provide engineering plans for the construction and development of a proprietary pilot reduction furnace for its Nevada-based Tami-Mosi project.

Nevada Clean Magnesium Inc. (TSXV:NVM) announced that it has engaged Silvertip Design NW to provide engineering plans for the construction and development of a proprietary pilot reduction furnace for its Nevada-based Tami-Mosi project.

The company also said that the pilot furnace’s operation will provide it with critical engineering data for its planned prefeasibility study.

As quoted in the press release:

Based on the principles of the Bolzano thermal reduction process, the pilot reduction furnace will include a number of alternative condensers.  The unit will be used to process dolomite ore from Tami-Mosi to produce magnesium ingot expected to meet ASTM B-92 grade for magnesium metal. Although not as prolific in global magnesium production as the more costly Pidgeon Process, versions of the Bolzano Process, using ferrosilicon as the reductant, is operated today by a magnesium producer in Brazil.  Nevada Clean chose to adopt the Bolzano approach due to the benefits of resistance heating and the simple furnace design required to achieve highly efficient energy utilization, good vacuum integrity and environmentally acceptable.
