Prophecy Platinum Tests Confirm 12.9% Nickel Concentrate and Separate 23% Copper Concentrate With PGE’s at Wellgreen
Prophecy Platinum Corp. (TSXV:NKL,OTCQX:PNIKF,FWB:P94P) announced results from ongoing metallurgical testing at its Wellgreen Project in the southwestern Yukon Territory. Metallurgical tests indicate separate nickel-PGE-cobalt concentrates grading up to 12.9% nickel and copper-PGE-gold concentrates grading up to 23.2% copper can be produced from Wellgreen’s disseminated PGE-Ni-Cu mineralization.
As quoted in the press release:
These results conclude the first phase of an extensive metallurgical program commenced in late 2011 and show it is now possible to produce separate Ni- PGE-Co and Cu-PGE-Au concentrates from disseminated sulphide-bearing, ultramafic mineralized rocks that comprise the bulk of Wellgreen’s National Instrument 43-101 resource.
