Source of byproduct metals

  • Copper -   Reddish metal, malleable and ductile, with high electrical and thermal conductivities. Resistant to air and water but slowly weathers to green patina of basic carbonates. (Historically important alloy, bronze.) Used as wire for conducting electricity; coins; alloys, etc.

  • Lead -   Is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Pb (Latin: plumbum) and atomic number 82. A soft, heavy, toxic and malleable poor metal, lead is bluish white when freshly cut but tarnishes to dull gray when exposed to air. Lead is used in building construction, lead-acid batteries, bullets and shot, and is part of solder, pewter, and fusible alloys. Lead has the highest atomic number of all stable elements - although the next element, bismuth, has a half life so long it can be considered stable. Like mercury, another heavy metal, lead is a potent neurotoxin which accumulates in soft tissues and bone over time.

Corvus Reports 92% Average Gold Recovery Using AAO From All Sulfide Rock Types, North Bullfrog Project, NV
Wed, 21 Jun 2017 08:00:00 EDT

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 21, 2017) - Corvus Gold Inc. ("Corvus" or the "Company") - (TSX:KOR)(OTCQX:CORVF) announces complete results of the first phase of testing of the Atmospheric Alkaline Oxidation (AAO) method of oxidizing sulfide mineralization for low cost cyanide gold extraction (Table 1). The results indicate the AAO method for oxidizing sulfide material could result in overall gold recoveries of +90% from all of the potential sulfide mineralized rock types at the North Bullfrog Project (including: Sierra Blanca tuff, Pioneer Formation tuff, Dacite and Rhyolite). The sulfide metallurgical recoveries are similar to the oxidized milled material recoveries in the current production plan. The estimated additional operational cost to the mill ore for the AAO process would raise the mill cutoff grade to approximately 0.65 g/t. The current North Bullfrog resource model has several areas of sulfide mineralization within and immediately adjacent the mine excavation identified by Whittle Optimization at sufficient grade to be potentially processed using the AAO process.

Drilling results continue to demonstrate that the high-grade mineralization of the historic Minto Mine extends to the south. Furthermore, the mineralization of the Minto Mine South Zone appears to be hosted in stacked gold-bearing structures similar to the ones at the Surluga Deposit (>1M oz inferred gold resource at 1.71 g/t)2.
