NEW BRUNSWICK - ADEX MINING of Toronto is ready to take the initial steps leading to development of its Mount Pleasant indium-tin property approximately 80 km south of Fredericton. Work will include a scoping study, metallurgical tests, wastewater treatment planning, tailings area upgrades and environmental management proposals.
The property contains two zones: the tin- and iridium-containing North zone and the molybdenum-rich Fire Tower zone. Metallurgical work will be done for both types of ores. In addition to the production of metal concentrates using gravity separation, flotation and magnetic separation, Adex plans to produce high grade ammonium paratungstate (APT) and indium metal by hydrometallurgical processing.
