FOKUS TO COMPLETE METALLURGICAL TESTING ON GALLOWAY BY THE END OF OCTOBER
Fokus Mining Corporation, (“Fokus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FKM) (OTCQB: FKMCF) (FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce that the metallurgical tests required to complete its independent NI43-101 resource estimate are now underway and will be completed by the end of October. The selection and preparation of the samples and the test protocols were conducted independently (see press release dated August 30, 2022).
Drill core samples were provided from the Hendrick and GP zones to prepare composites. Test work includes mineralogy, head samples, assays, grindability, gravity recovery tests and cyanidation tests. Composites and residues from cyanide tests will be stored and frozen to avoid degradation in the event that additional testing is later planned. It should also be noted that sufficient samples have been prepared to duplicate all ongoing tests if necessary.
“We are very happy to complete these test sequences to finalize the NI 43-101 Compliant Resource Estimate. We think that the results to come from this latter material requirement will be consistent with our own estimations and that they will provide us with a high degree of confidence in our models.” said Jean Rainville, President and CEO of the Company.
