Flinders Provides Update on Testing at Woxna

Flinders Resources Ltd. (TSXV:FDR) announced an update on the metallurgical test programs being conducted on graphite-bearing rock from its Sweden-based Woxna mine, commenting that the flake size distributions from the current results and historical production show potential for improved flake size distribution.

The following table shows flake size distributions for both the current test results and historical production:

Graphite Flake Size 
(µm)
Test Results
(% by weight)
Historic Production
(% by weight)
+250 µm 23 -
+180-250 µm 27 32
+100-180 µm 35 32
-100 µm 15 36

Further cleaning test work is currently underway to maximise graphite purity while maintaining a high flake size distribution.  The metallurgical test program concludes with locked cycle tests of the proposed new process flow sheet. This work is expected to be completed in early June.

Once the final results are available from the metallurgical test work, all of the components will be available to complete a preliminary economic assessment of resuming production at the Woxna graphite mine.
