Foran Mining Corporation has announced positive results for initial metallurgical test work on their Bigstone deposit. The deposit is located in the Hanson Lake Camp about 25 kilometers southwest of their McIlvenna Bay deposit and 85 kilometers west of Flin Flon.
The program was conducted on composite drill core samples from each of three main styles of mineralization at Bigstone. President and CEO of Foran Patrick Soares says their winter 2015 infill drill program exceeded their expectations with broad intercepts of high grade copper and/or zinc in all holes drilled. He says the positive metallurgical results demonstrate that mineralization at Bigstone is amenable to the production of saleable copper and zinc concentrates using a conventional flotation circuit adding based on these results Foran will review the next steps to maximize the value of the Bigstone deposit.
