Latrobe Magnesium (ASX: LMG) has produced a large sample of beneficiated fly ash (BFA) for magnesium production, using its hydromet patented process, for full scale commercial smelter processing in China.

This sample will allow the processing of upwards of 1,000 kg of material through the smelter.

The chemistry of the BFA sample for China is in line with LMG’s normal operating specifications, used in its prefeasibility and adjustment studies over the last four years.

Following confirmatory magnesium reduction test work being completed next week in Victoria, the sample will be sent to China, expected by the end of April.

Then, processing the BFA in China and receiving the assays is expected to take around 1 month.

LMG has an agreement with BTE Engineering Co to use the Chinese National Laboratory and a magnesium producer to demonstrate the large scale production of magnesium metal from its BFA.

This work replaces pilot plant tests that might otherwise have been required and will address directly any risks with the use of BFA as a feed stock in a commercial operation.

Previous test work will be replicated to confirm earlier results, together with a full suite of cement tests to determine the specific properties and advantages of this cementitious material.

This work will take several months to complete, although 80% of data is expected to be available within 28 days, with initial results expected in June.

After this, LMG will be positioned to enter into Memoranda of Understanding with potential customers to supply magnesium metal and cementitious material.

The company is capitalised at around $5 million.
