Teras Resources Inc. (TSXV:TRA,OTCQX:TRARF) completed the initial phase of metallurgical testing of drill samples from the Cahuilla project in California. 47 samples were analyzed and results from the cyanide shake tests are as follows: an average of 88.18% gold with the majority oxide, and an average of 80.07% gold with the mixed oxide/sulfide.
As quoted in the press release:
After reviewing the results and speaking with McClelland Laboratories, management at Teras is optimistic with the precious metal recoveries at Cahuilla. The results suggest good potential for processing this material by cyanidation processing methods. Additional samples will be submitted for further and more detailed metallurgical and mineralogical testing as the program advances.
