Coronet Metals Inc. (TSXV: CRF,OTCQX:CORMF,FWB: 2CM) completed construction at its Liberty Gold Processing Facility in Amargosa Valley, Nevada. The custom circuit to process gold concentrates is now being commissioned with commercial production expected before the end of October.
As quoted in the press release:
The gravity, magnetic separation and grinding circuits have been commissioned and are working well. The agitated leach, filtration and Merrill-Crowe circuits are complete and have been water tested. Liberty is installing a larger, fully completed, skid mounted Merrill-Crowe unit this week. Leaching will commence next week. Liberty has a fully equipped on-site laboratory with a Perkin Elmer Atomic Absorption (“AA”) unit, bottle roll, fire assay and smelting capabilities, which is set-up and operational.
A pre-production inspection of the Liberty Facility was conducted by the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (“NDEP”) and it was given the green light to commence production at any time.
