Pilot plant up and running
This week FYI began production of HPA from its pilot plant following the plant’s construction and commissioning.
The pilot plant plays a key role in de-risking the company’s plan to process kaolin feed from its Cadoux Project in Western Australia to produce HPA.
This plant will run continuously for seven days with the aim of validating the processing flowsheet, which is designed to process kaolin and refine it into high-value HPA product.
The product produced from the pilot plant will be analysed and then sent to potential end-users and customers with the goal of establishing offtake agreements.
