Intertech Solutions to Commence Multi-Ton Bulk Sampling Program at WPE Project, Arizona
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Intertech Solutions Inc. (OTCPK: ITEC) ("Intertech Solutions Inc.," "ITEC" or the "Company") today is very pleased to report that the Company has commenced preparations to undertake a large, multi-ton bulk sampling program scheduled to occur on or before September 15th. The bulk sampling program is in keeping with the recommendations of the project technical report, as well as paralleling the ongoing metallurgical studies which are analyzing the WPE gold ore, and characterizing its nature.
The bulk samples will be processed and compared to the first 1,000 lb. (one half ton) test which yielded an overall grade of 5.733 grams per ton (0.170 ounces per ton). The larger bulk samples of the gold ore will provide a more accurate grade analysis as we progress towards a full production scenario.
Currently, we are expecting an overall grade to fall somewhere between our Phase 2 program results of 4.556 grams per ton (0.135 opt) cut to one ounce, and 9.974 grams per ton (0.296 opt) uncut. The Company remains confident that the expected overall final grade of the deposit will fall somewhere in this range and that a minimum 5 gram per ton deposit is present.
Additionally, we have received very favorable reports from the second metallurgical test, being undertaken by a Denver based testing facility. The gold characterization study of tabled gold concentrates has shown that the WPE Project gold is nearly all free gold, or free milling - not intergrown or associated with any sulphides or silicates. This means that our milling will be very simple and that the gold will be easily recovered from simple gravity separation. This will be very cost effective not requiring any complex separation techniques often required on many gold ores.
As reported earlier, based on the inferred mineral resource calculated under classification of N.I. 43-101 of 2,437,500 tons, this represents 414,375 inferred ounces. Intertech is projecting, based on 500 ton per day operating tonnage, that 2,550 ounces a month may be produced at a value of $220 per ton costing $30 per ton to produce or $190 per ton net profit. If this is achieved, a monthly net profit of $2,700,000 is possible.
We expect further results from the ongoing studies and will announce the results as soon as they are available.
The WPE Claims #1-#4 claims are located in the Middlecamp Mining District in La Paz County, near Quartzite Arizona. The gold claims cover a total of 80 contiguous acres and have easy access between Phoenix and Palm Springs, CA along Interstate 10.
