Project Details

An updated Blackbird chromite NI 43-101 resource estimate completed in March 2012 tripled the previous 2009 estimate and showed a 44 Mt resource with grades in excess of 35% Cr2O3 and chrome-to-iron ratios of approximately 2.0. In addition, the chromite mineralization at Blackbird remains open along strike and at depth.

Initial metallurgical test results [completed by SGS Mineral Services and compiled by qualified persons from Micon International JM Note: Do we need this?] indicate a marketable high-grade chromite concentrate product with grades in excess of 50% Cr2O3, recoveries greater than 80%, and chrome-to-iron ratios greater 2.1 could be produced at Blackbird.
