Figure 1. Location of the Dampier Mineral Sands Project
Preliminary results relate to initial metallurgical test work undertaken on a 100kg composite sample from the mineralised zone at Night Train and show that the zircon meets ceramic grade specifications and can be produced using conventional mineral sands processing techniques.
The Night Train heavy minerals are low in iron contamination and the zircon produced was without an enhancing leaching stage. The zircon grain size is fine to medium with a D50 of 79 microns. The composite sample averages 4.7% heavy minerals and contains 17.4% zircon in the mineral assemblage.
Further work at Night Train will include follow up exploration drilling and more detailed metallurgical test work.
