Nitric Acid Leach Testwork Results

West Lynn Project, NSW


Greater than 85% nitric acid leach recoveries for both Ni and Co in blended laterite/saprolite samples.

92% and 80% nitric acid leach recoveries for Ni and Co respectively in weathered serpentinite samples.

Hydrochloric acid leach testwork and high purity alumina (HPA) production determination on West Lynn kaolinite samples due Q2 2019

West Lynn kaolinite HPA resource due Q3 2019

Alchemy Resources Limited (ASX: ALY) (“Alchemy”) is pleased to announce additional excellent recoveries from metallurgical testwork completed by Direct Nickel (DNi) using a nitric acid leach via the patented DNi Process™. Recoveries for both nickel and cobalt from composite blended laterite/saprolite samples returned averages of 87.1% for nickel and 86.9% for cobalt (Table 1), similar to the separate laterite and saprolite samples. Recoveries for composite weathered serpentinite samples collected from the base of the mineralised zone returned averages of 91.6% for nickel and 79.6% for cobalt (Table 2). Recoveries for by-product elements (Al, Fe, Mg) were also in line with initial composited laterite and saprolite samples.

Table 1 - Nitric Acid Leach Recoveries

The nitric acid leach testwork on blended and weathered serpentinite samples was conducted at 1100C under atmospheric pressure over a period of 6 hours. Bench scale kinetic leaching testwork is planned for the Summervale and West Lynn blended samples. Three kinetic tests at different acid additions will be completed with samples taken every hour over a 6-hour leach period.

Simulus Laboratories have commenced hydrochloric acid leach testwork and HPA production determination on the Summervale kaolinite samples collected from the alumina rich kaolinite horizon located above the Ni-Co resource. The results are expected in Q2 with a subsequent Summervale alumina resource expected in Q3 2019.
