Metallurgical Triumph Unveiled

In a world where every ounce of gold counts, Amex Mining Corporation has struck metaphorical gold with its recent metallurgical tests conducted at the Perron project in Quebec. The results have exceeded expectations, showcasing a remarkable recovery rate of over 95% gold from the gravity tailings.

The Alchemy of Recovery

Under the meticulous scrutiny of experts, a single flotation test illuminated the potential as a 2-kg subsample from each gravity tailing was meticulously treated. The concoction of potassium amyl xanthate and methyl isobutyl carbinol, paired with a natural pH setting, worked its magic for 10 minutes, culminating in the recovery of an impressive 70.1% to 93.1% of the gold.

Optimizing Results

Amex’s revelation didn’t stop there. The company revealed that direct cyanidation of the gravity tailings showed promising results in recovering gold and silver, akin to the efficiency of flotation techniques. During the flotation test on half of the flotation tailings, the slurry underwent a transformative process as it was finely ground and underwent leaching in a bottle roll environment for 48 hours at a slightly alkaline pH level of 10.5 to 11.0. The cyanidation process proved to be a gem, reclaiming 79.0% to 96.7% of the gold within the tails.

A Bright Investment Horizon

Eldorado Gold, a prominent player in the industry, didn’t miss the glittering opportunity brought forth by Amex’s advancements. They recently poured C$15 million into charitable flow-through shares of Amex, securing a substantial 9.9% stake in the company. This strategic move not only underscores confidence in Amex but also hints at a prosperous future for both companies in the ever-evolving landscape of the mining sector.
