Greenland Minerals and Energy Ltd (OTCQX:GDLNF,ASX:GGG) reported on the opening briefing and discussion with CEO, Rod Mclllree.
As quoted in the press release:
Greenland Minerals and Energy Limited (ASX: GGG) has announced a technical breakthrough in the beneficiation of the rare earth element and uranium (REE-U) minerals proposed to be mined at Kvanefjeld. In a 15-hour pilot test GGG has successfully produced a higher-grade mineral concentrate using a simple flotation process. How much more testing is required to determine whether this method is applicable and scalable for the tonnages proposed?
Greenland Minerals & Energy CEO, Rod Mclllree stated:
The breakthrough in beneficiation came about when we identified an effective means of isolating the key economic mineral group at Kvanefjeld with bench-scale work. We’ve now scaled that up to the next level in a pilot test, and have achieved a highly successful outcome. Flotation is a proven technique across the minerals sector, and there’s nothing to indicate that further up-scaling will be problematic. As a result, we’re confident the beneficiation circuit will be suited to the ore we’re looking to process, and to the scale at which we want to mine.
