Arianne Resources CEO Bernard Lapointe said:
This latest metallurgical test represents another milestone achievement, once again demonstrating the superior nature of Lac a Paul’s apatite-nelsonite ore and the high-percentage recovery of a very high-grade phosphate rock concentrate from relatively simple metallurgical processing. The pilot-scale testing will also serve to optimize the process design for our Feasibility Study.
