NEWFOUNDLAND – Vancouver’s Canadian Zinc Corp
. and Buchans Minerals Corp
. are contemplating a shared, central mineral processing facility. It would treat ores from the potential mines of both companies.
Canadian Zinc has three advanced zinc-lead-copper projects in the central part of the province: Long Lake, South Tally Pond, and Tulks South.
Buchans is a subsidiary of Minco Plc
and holds the Lundberg and other base metal properties in the Buchans mining camp.
Metallurgical testing included pre-concentration of ore by dense media separation followed by sequential flotation. Making separate zinc, lead and copper concentrates is the preferred method.
Canadian Zinc says a process simulation and cost assessment model are now underway.
