VRX Silica turns up high recoveries from silica sand process plant design

VRX Silica (ASX: VRX) has announced the results of testwork and confirmed assays for recoveries of silica sand commercial products from its Arrowsmith and Muchea Silica Sand Projects located north of Perth. The Company has now conducted three iterations of the testwork, with the final iteration completed in March of this year by CDE Global. VRX has also completed confirmation assays on final products from that testwork through Nagrom Laboratories in Perth.

HIGHLIGHTS

·       Confirmation of high recoveries of commercial silica sand products from Arrowsmith and Muchea Silica Sand Projects

·       Demand for these products strong across the Asia Pacific region

·       Full catalogue of products available for customers

The Company has now conducted three iterations of the testwork, with the final iteration completed in March of this year by CDE Global, a renowned testwork laboratory and process plant fabricator based in Northern Ireland.

The Company has since completed confirmation assays on final products from that testwork through Nagrom Laboratories in Perth, WA.

The Company recently released a process circuit design, engineering and cost estimate by CDE Global for a plant which was based on this testwork and the final determination of recoveries is based on this circuit design, which included the attritioning step being conducted twice.

Attritioning is a high energy interaction of grains rubbing on grains which liberates attached fine particles and reduces particle size by breakage on corners and grain boundaries. This reduces contaminants and improves particle shape.

VRX Silica Managing Director Bruce Maluish said: “We are now confident in the process circuit design and the final silica sand products capable of production, which have been compiled into our products catalogue.

“We will continue to distribute our catalogue and gauge the response, which to-date has been extremely positive,” said Mr Maluish.
