- Ten grab samples were tested for magnetic separation using a Davis Tube Test: Sample 9 achieved 86.7% that contained 57% Fe, and Sample 4 achieved 57.2% that contained 40.8% Fe. This was very encouraging and further work will be undertaken.
- A bulk sampling program will be undertaken in the next few weeks to concentrate the sampling in these two areas to determine the extent of each occurrence.
VANCOUVER, July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Robert L. Card, President of Arrowstar Resources Ltd. ("Arrowstar" or the "Company") (TSXV: AWS), is pleased to report that Phillip Thomas, Vice -President Exploration and Director of the Company, has received the final results of the samples taken from Port Snettisham, in Alaska in June 2012.
The Davis Tube Test is a test whereby the iron ore is crushed to approximately 0.15mm and then immersed into water and passed over a magnet for a period of time. At the end of the test, the iron ore sticking to the magnet is weighed and the non-magnetic material weighed and the percentage calculated.
Sample nine achieved excellent results with a recovery of 86.7% of magnetite from the pyroxenite. This means on a commercial scale at 75% efficiency approximately 1.54 units of ROM ore to one unit of magnetite would be produced. This is a very good recovery ratio and keeps waste to a minimum.
Proposals are being reviewed for a ground based aeromagnetic program that is the next step in our exploration program.
