Eight samples sent to Curtin University for metallurgical test-works
Test-works to be conducted in alkaline and acidic conditions to determine REE recovery
Ragusa Minerals Limited (ASX: RAS) (“Ragusa” or “Company”) is pleased to advise that it has commenced metallurgical test-work on a select group of samples from its Burracoppin REE Project to determine potential Rare Earth Element (REE) recoveries using both alkaline and acidic test conditions. The Company has engaged a team from Curtin University, Western Australian School of Mines: Minerals, Energy & Chemical Engineering department to conduct the laboratory works, with mineral analysis to be conducted by ALS.
Ragusa Chair, Jerko Zuvela said “The Company is excited to conduct this next phase of development works at our Burracoppin REE Project, having recently announced our maiden JORC 2012 inferred Mineral Resource estimate, confirming the highly valued and strategic critical minerals and multi-commodity development opportunity at the Project. The shallow and high-grade REE mineralisation alongside the kaolinite and halloysite is very prospective and adds significant potential to the project.”
