Los Andes Copper (TSX-V:LA) said today that it received the final results for the copper recoveries and concentrate grades as part of the ongoing pre-feasibility study at its Vizcachitas project in Chile.
The company said that samples were selected to best represent the composition of the geological features that would be mined over the first 12 years of the mine plan, the period where the most complex mineralogy and alteration is found, and thus presents the toughest conditions for the flotation circuit.
Executive chair Fernando Porcile touted the results.
“I am very pleased that the recent comprehensive testwork has confirmed that Vizcachitas will produce a clean and high-quality copper concentrate. This testwork validates the flotation performance when the operating parameters are applied to the more complex areas of the mine,” said Porcile.
