Metallurgical Testing to be Initiated for Kenville Gold
Monday, October 7, 2019 10:30 AM
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 7, 2019 / Ximen Mining Corp. (TSX.V:XIM) (FRA:1XMA) (OTCQB:XXMMF) (the "Company" or "Ximen") wishes to announce that it is initiating work with Golden Dawn Minerals Inc. to do metallugical test work on material from the Kenville Gold Mine project in Nelson, BC.
In the coming year, the Kenville Gold mine is expected to produce gold bearing material from planned mine development and bulk sampling. Ximen is therefore working with Golden Dawn Minerals now to collect a sample for metallurgical testing to evaluate the possibility of custom milling at Golden Dawn's mill facility at Greenwood, BC.
A representative sample of gold mineralization from the Kenville mine will be collected from historic drill core and submitted for metallurgical characterization. The test work will investigate the mineralogy and chemistry of the mined material and process tailings, investigate gold recovery using gravity concentration and bulk sulphide floatation, and characterize the acid generating potential of the tailings product. (The tailings from Kenville material is anticipated at this stage to be non-acid generating and benign based on historical information.) The results will be used to determine if Kenville run-of-mine material can be custom milled at the Greenwood process plant.
Presumably, the gold in the Kenville material could be recovered using the gravity and floatation process in the Greenwood mill. Free-milling gold would be recovered in the existing centrifugal concentrator, and a gold-pyrite concentrate would be produced by bulk floatation concentration. At this stage it looks like major modifications to the existing treatment facility will not be required.
Once the metallurgical test work is complete, the Greenwood mill will need to be permitted for custom milling. The next step would be refurbishment of the mill prior to starting operations.
