Exceptional Metallurgical Results Further Strengthen Development Outlook for Labyrinth Gold Project in Canada

Overall recovery result of 95.2% Au follows maiden Resource of 500,000oz at 5g/t1

Labyrinth Resources (“Labyrinth” or “the Company”) (ASX:LRL) is pleased to announce outstanding metallurgical results from its comprehensive testwork which demonstrate a clear, efficient processing pathway for its 500,000oz Labyrinth gold project in Quebec, Canada.

KEYPOINTS

  • Outstanding recovery achieved through Gravity/Flotation flowsheet, returning a low mass pull, high value 96g/t Au concentrate at 97.3% recovery
  • Mineralogical studies confirm the production of a pyrite dominant concentrate containing negligible deleterious elements
  • Regrinding the flotation concentrate prior to cyanidation returns an overall 95.2% Au recovery to doré at low cyanide and lime consumption rates
  • The results demonstrate a clear, efficient processing pathway for the high-grade Labyrinth project
  • Further metallurgical and process design upside likely through float and grind size optimisation

The results will help underpin optimisation studies across the Labyrinth Project, initial plant design costings and assessment of any third-party ore sales, toll treatment or concentrate sales.

Labyrinth Chief Executive Matt Nixon said: “These are excellent metallurgical results demonstrating that we can deliver 95.2 per cent gold recoveries using a conventional gravity and flotation circuit.

“This will be extremely beneficial for our optimisation studies, which are already underpinned by a

Resource grade of 5g/t and access to the existing underground mine infrastructure”.

Details of Testwork

The project commenced in August 2022 with the submission of diamond core crushed residue composites to Base Metallurgical Laboratories Ltd (“BaseLabs”) in British Columbia, Canada. The metallurgical program was derived and managed by JT Metallurgical Services (“JTs”) in Perth. The aims of the program were to define the key mineralogical characteristics of the likely mill feed to a future plant, undertake systematic tests reflective of likely flowsheets being gravity/cyanidation and gravity/flotation/cyanidation and conduct comprehensive assays and mineralogical analysis on the flotation concentrate and process streams for flowsheet optimisation and marketing purposes.

The Gold Standard: Facts and History (Updated 2024)

The Gold Standard: Facts and History (Updated 2024)

The gold standard. Today the term denotes something that is the highest level of quality in its category.

Gold, with all its luster, has been sought after, fought over and prized for thousands of years. It’s been used as a sacred adornment and has projected the wealth and status of monarchs and nobility. And ever since the ancient Lydians minted the first gold coins around 550 BCE, the yellow metal has played an important role in the monetary system.

Over the millennia, gold has never lost its appeal, and by the end of the 19th century it had become a crucial component of how nations interacted with each other economically.
