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 which is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
On to Phase II. Phase I of the hydrometallurgical pilot plant operation was completed successfully (please refer to our research note dated April 13) and provided an opportunity to explore areas of the process where the efficiency of the hydrometallurgical process could be improved. Changes have been incorporated in the Phase II pilot plant program which began on April 24 and will run for 10 days. The data from the pilot plant will be used in the preliminary feasibility study.
