Artemis Resources Ltd (ASX:ARV) has received initial results from its metallurgical program underway at the Carlow Castle Gold-Copper-Cobalt Project in Western Australia.

Artemis’s CEO Wayne Bramwell said: “This first pass metallurgical program indicates Carlow Castle is amenable to low cost gravity gold recovery and base metal flotation processes.

“The high-grade copper concentrates (with gold credits) produced are encouraging and cobalt flotation is now progressing.”

Preliminary metallurgical test work is focussed upon recovery of (1) gold from both gravity and leaching processes; and (2) copper and cobalt via conventional flotation.

Options to maximise the total gold and copper recovery are now being investigated.

The cobalt flotation test work is at an early stage and the focus of this program is reagent screening to maximise cobalt recovery.

Results in December, enabling off-take discussions

Results of this program are expected in December with reporting post evaluation of all assay data.

The results of the metallurgical test work program will provide Artemis with a basis to commence discussions with off-take partners enabling the commencement of a scoping study in Q1, 2019.
