Stepout Program Hole 65 – The 2nd Highest Grading Broad Interval of Nickel Near-surface Mineralization

Magnetic Separator Market

A magnetic separator first filters and then instantly eliminates or disposes off the metal waste products from the stream of the product. The quality of the product is guaranteed and damage to machines is avoided. This equipment is very much used in many industries like coal, glass, packaging, rubber and plastic, chemical, food, mineral processing, recycling and pharmaceuticals. This equipment also separates nonferrous and ferrous materials by taking benefits of variances in the material’s magnetic properties. These units use direct currents and wired coils to provide powerful magnetic fields. Powerful and heavy magnetic separators are used for limestone, coal, sand and various other combined applications. According to an ongoing study by Future Market Insights, increase in the demand for ores and minerals-raw materials, is anticipated to be the driver for the growth of the global magnetic separator market. These minerals are used in industries like textile, energy, pharmaceuticals, etc.

Decar Project – Naturally Occurring Nickel-iron Alloy called Awaruite

According to recent news, FPX Nickel Corp. is engrossed in the development and exploration of the project- Decar Nickel-Iron Alloy, situated in central British Columbia and other events of the same exceptional style of awaruite. The company is delighted to declare results of the 1st 3 of 8 diamond drill holes which was completed during its latest stepout drill testing of the Baptiste deposit, at FPX Nickel’s 100% owned project in central British Columbia.

The President and CEO of the Company had mentioned that they’re very much happy with the initial drill results from their highlighted by hole 65, stepout program, at the southeast of PEA 2013 resource pit outline collared 420 meters, in the project’s history which returned as the 2nd highest grading broad interval of nickel mineralization’s near-surface. The mineralized zone is characterized by plenty dispersed grained granular grained ‘awaruite’ accommodated in ultramafic rocks.

NQ and HQ drill core were separated in half with a diamond saw and sampled down hole constantly with the exemption of post mineralization dikes which are unsampled and are known to have grade zero. Drill core samples were sampled in four meter lengths, tamper proof tags sealed, shipped, cut on-site and bagged to activation laboratories for analysis in Kamloops, British Columbia. Laboratory grounding involved pulverization of 105 microns to 95%, 250 g split of a rifle and crushing the complete sample to 90%which is less than 2mm.

The Applicability of the Magnetic Separator – Davis Tube

The magnetic separation Davis Tube includes serving a 30 g split of the pulp through a DT magnetic separator as a suspension using a continuous 400 millilitres per minute flow rate. Also, magnetic field power of 3,500 Gauss at a 45degree angle to produce a nonmagnetic and magnetic fraction. The nonmagnetic and magnetic fractions are weighted and dried. The magnetic fraction is examined by XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) combination that produces nickel analysis and high quality multi-element data. The calculation of DTR nickel grade is done by multiplying the value of XRF fusion by the magnetic fraction’s weight divided by the total weight recorded.

QC/QA procedures involved the study of prep and field duplicates. Also, addition of certified reference material together with non-certified replicates and blanks to evaluate the precision and accuracy of XRF analysis and Davis tube magnetic separation. Further, they’re used to determine the content of DTR nickel. Davis Tube method is considered as a mini-scale metallurgical test and also is utilized to provide better accurate measures of recoverable nickel. For exploration projects and magnetic recovery operations, this method is considered as geometallurgical test, globally.
