MANITOBA – Saturn Minerals of Vancouver says the initial washability tests on coal from its Overflowing property are positive. The property lies only 8 km east of the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border, in the Karolina Basin. The washability tests were conducted by Loring Labs of Calgary.
Coal washability tests provide information with regard to the amount and character of impurities contained in coal, and determine the potential for recovery and quality improvement of washed, clean coal composites. Washability tests also allow optimization of mining and plant designs.
Saturn has made two coal discoveries on its properties since 2009, including one of the thickest coal seams encountered in Canada at 88 metres thick.
