Fancamp Exploration Elated With Metallurgy Test Results of Magpie Mines

Fancamp Exploration has proclaimed that Magpie Mines has obtained the final report and the Phase I metallurgical test work results, which was conducted by COREM, Quebec. COREM has produced a 94.8% titanium oxide concentrate (TiO2) along with 88.5% of leaching recovery. Also, the recovery of hydrochloric acid of up to 70% was possible, as reported.

The management of the company believes that these results are encouraging and will aid in progress of work that includes exploring the Magpie mineralization further for vanadium, iron, chromium, titanium and other elements.

COREM uses a proprietary process that involves Magpie titaniferous ore leaching in hydrochloric acid at 70-80°C temperatures and states below atmospheric pressure.

The company is expecting to begin the phase II metallurgical tests in August, 2011 and will include the Phase I fine-tuning program to additionally advance the recovery and the transparency of the recovered TiO2, along with the vanadium recovery.

The phase III program will include a mini-pilot plant scale analysis for excellent iron oxide production and regeneration of acid by means of entrenched oxyhydrolysis techniques. It is anticipated that phase III tests will start in October 2011.
