Flotation tests across a range of lithologies. The Wicheeda deposit is to be developed as an open pit mining operation. Once mined, rare earth oxides (REO) will be milled and processed in a flotation plant to produce a REO concentrate. The company is currently performing flotation tests on samples of differing lithologies. The Wicheeda deposit is characterized by three main rare earths bearing lithologies, including dolomite carbonatite which is the dominant lithology, xenolithic carbonatite, and syenite. Limestone is the major waste rock.
Conventional flotation yields high grade concentrate. Approximately 70 flotation tests have been performed. Results have confirmed that conventional flotation from a range of lithologies and grades can produce high grade rare earths mineral concentrate at high recovery rates.
