BRITISH COLUMBIA – The scoping level metallurgical tests on material from the Ted-Mint vein at the 3Ts project 185 km southwest of Prince George have Vancouver-based Independence Gold Corp. feeling pleased. The best recovery was obtained using a combination of gravity, flotation and leaching, with the highest recovery being 97.3% of the gold and 94.9% of the silver.
The sample was a composite from three drill holes that intersected the Ted-Mint vein. The head grade was 2.28 g/t Au and 66.5 g/t Ag. The tests were conducted by SGS Canada in Vancouver.
Independence Gold pointed out that the 3Ts project covers approximately 4,433 hectares in the Nechako Plateau region of central British Columbia. Gold occurs in an epithermal quartz-carbonate vein system within which more than a dozen individual mineralized veins, ranging up to 900 metres in strike length and up to 20 metres in true width.
Well mineralized vein float boulders on the 3Ts property indicate there is excellent potential to discover new mineralized veins within the 3Ts project area, said the company.
