Prophecy Development (“Prophecy” or the “Company”) (TSX:PCY, OTCPK:PRPCF, Frankfurt:1P2N) announces further to its news release updating the status of the Company’s Titan property dated July 11, 2017, that Prophecy has now received results from batch metallurgical testing of samples obtained from its Titan property.
The Company’s 100% owned, Titan vanadium-iron-titanium property (the “Titan Property”) is located at Flett and Angus Townships, 120 kilometres northwest of Sudbury, Ontario. The goal of the batch testing was to determine the percentage of metals soluble by hydrochloric acid and the effect of time and temperature under conditions for maximum recovery. The tests were carried out by NMR360, an independent laboratory located in Ville St. Laurent, Quebec, Canada.
The circuit could include a selective vanadium leach (with little accompanying titanium extraction) at lower temperature and short duration, followed by a higher-temperature, longer duration titanium leach.
