BRITISH COLUMBIA – BioteQ Environmental Technologies of Vancouver has completed successful pilot testing of a plant to remove selenium from water at the KSM copper-gold project. The property, 65 km northwest of Stewart, is an advanced exploration project owned by Toronto-based Seabridge Gold.
BioteQ operated the pilot plant, using the its patent pending Selen-IX™ process, in 2014 and early in 2015. After treatment, the selenium content of the water was measured at 1.0 ppb. The tests were a key component of the provincial environmental assessment certificate issued on July 30, 2014.
Seabridge Gold Chairman and CEO Rudi Fronk stated, "Successful completion of the pilot plant test achieves a further milestone in KSM’s ongoing transition from exploration to development."
