YUKON – Vancouver-based Golden Predator Mining said processing 776 tonnes of material from the bulk sample at its 3 Aces project resulted in pouring 953.4 oz. of gold. The average grade of gold in concentrate was 46.18 g/t.
The company used conventional gravity recovery methods, and it believes that is sufficient to obtain high gold recoveries – 95% – without the use of chemicals or elaborate equipment.
Three concentrates were obtained. The first was very high grade and was directly smelter into doré bars. The other two were sulphide concentrates that were combined for smelting and refining. Golden Predator sold 671 oz. of gold for proceeds of US$865,446.
