Pilot plant program. The Wicheeda REE project pilot plant is being configured to produce a high purity rare earth precipitate suitable as feed stock for a rare earths element (REE) separation plant. The objective of the pilot plant is to demonstrate, at a larger scale, the processing of Wicheeda flotation concentrate to produce rare earths using the acid bake hydrometallurgy process and to collect data for a preliminary feasibility study (PFS) which is expected to be completed during the first half of 2024.

Phase II completed. Defense Metals recently completed Phase II hydrometallurgical pilot plant test work and has commenced work on the Wicheeda preliminary feasibility study. Phase II operations were performed by SGS Canada Inc. at Lakefield, Ontario and were completed in early May and entailed processing 370 kilograms (kg) of flotation concentrate produced in an earlier flotation pilot plant operation. The recent work provided the metallurgical test data required for Defense Metals’ engineering consultants to commence the design work that is an important part of the PFS.
