Bulk sample ore on-route to WA
Pure Minerals’ wholly-owned subsidiary Queensland Pacfific Metals Pty Ltd (QPM) has a bulk sample of laterite ore from New Caledonia in transit to the CSIRO pilot plant in Western Australia.
QPM’s New Caledonian ore supply partners, Société des Mines de la Tontouta (SMT) and Societe Miniere Georges Montagnat SARL (SMGM) have mined an 80-tonne bulk sample which is representative of what would be supplied to QPM under the agreement signed between the parties in 2018.
The sample ore has been assayed, bagged and loaded into containers ready for shipment to Perth, where the pilot plant is being recommissioned.
Upon arrival in Perth, the ore must be dried prior to processing in the pilot plant
