Orex Minerals (TSXV:REX) has announced that the analytical from SGS Minerals Services has been awarded a contract to conduct the initial metallurgical testing on the Sandra Escobar Project in Durango, Mexico. The project is being advanced by Orex under an option agreement with Canasil Resources (TSXV:CLZ).
As quoted in the press release:

A flat-lying unit of strataform, disseminated silver mineralization is located in the southeastern region of the Sandra Escobar project. Preliminary mineralogy testing has identified Native Silver (Ag) as the primary silver mineral, along with the silver halides, Cerargyrite (AgCl) and Bromargyrite (AgBr), hosted within a permeable, crystal lithic tuff.
Bottle roll leach test will be performed on five composite samples of varying head grades and at three separate crushing particle sizes. The samples will cover the grade ranges of approximately 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250 g/t silver and particle sizes of approximately 80% less than 75, 106 and 150 microns. Sample readings will be taken at 4, 8, 12, 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours to determine leach time performance.
Orex’s President, Gary Cope says, “A first metallurgical test is a major step in an exploration project. We look forward to announcing the results of this metallurgical testing, as well as the results of the initial resource estimation.”
