Energizer Resources Inc. (TSX:EGZ,OTCQX:ENZR,FWB:YE5) announced that mechanical commissioning of the Molo Graphite Project in Madagascar has been completed, and two continuous 80-hour campaigns to optimize metallurgical conditions will be completed in the next 30 days.
As quoted in the press release:
Two hundred tonnes of composite graphite ore was transported last month from the Molo deposit via existing, serviceable infrastructure to SGS in preparation for the pilot plant. Representatives from Caracle Creek International Consulting (“CCIC”) were on site to ensure the ore extracted from the Molo deposit was a true representative sample of the mill feed that will eventually be treated in the future processing plant and that it would satisfy the required standards for use in the upcoming Bankable Feasibility Study (“BFS”). CCIC was the Qualified Person (“QP”) for the recently completed Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) study and will also be retained as QP for the upcoming BFS.
Energizer Resources President & COO, Craig Scherba, said:
Energizer has reached yet another significant milestone with the commissioning and operation of our pilot plant, which is a critical component of Molo’s mine development plan. We are extremely pleased that by the end of November, tonnes of our finished graphite will be in the hands of several potential off take partners for evaluation.
