GALANTAS OMAGH GOLD-MINE PROCESSING PLANT COMMENCES OPERATING WITH FEED FROM UNDERGROUND DEVELOPMENT
August 08, 2018: Galantas Gold Corporation (Galantas or the company) is pleased to report that the Omagh gold-mine processing plant has commenced operating on feed from underground development of the Kearney gold vein.
The processing plant has the benefit of a recent upgrade to some sections and is expected to operate part-time until production stoping commences, anticipated late in 2018 or early in 2019. (Stoping is the bulk mining of mineralised vein material between levels developed on vein.)
The plant operates a froth flotation system for production of a gold-silver concentrate. This process removes the sulphide minerals and gold and concentrates them into a product suitable for smelter treatment. The concentrate is then exported, via Belfast port, to a smelter. The process is environmentally safe and operates without the use of cyanide reagents.
Roland Phelps, President & CEO, Galantas Gold Corporation said, “This is another important milestone successfully and safely achieved and I look forward to our expected ramp up in development production.”
