  • Thor Mining Sees Cost Benefits From Tungsten Ore Sorting At Molyhil, Northern Territory 0 comments
    Oct 2, 2013 10:14 PM

    Thor Mining (ASX: THR, AIM: THR) has noted potential cost savings from ore sorting test work at its Molyhil tungsten-molybdenum project in the Northern Territory.

    Three samples totalling 41.3 kilograms of ore from Molyhil were separately processed using X-Ray detection through a sorting machine by Applied Sorting Technologies in Melbourne.

    At the mid-range of these results, Thor would be able to process less than 65% of the ore sorted, with a tungsten loss of only 2% to 3%, and molybdenum loss of 5.5% to 7.7%.

    Ore sorting is a low cost pre-concentration process which upgrades ore prior to the more expensive fine crushing and grinding of the ore processing circuit.

    After sorting, tungsten and molybdenum mineralised material progresses through the remainder of the circuit, while non-mineralised material is discarded.

    The reduction in throughput at Molyhil achieved via ore sorting generates reduced operating costs with potential to deliver significant benefits for the project.
