DST Announces Positive Metallurgical Test Work Results with Major Gold Miner
MONTREAL, QUEBEC - TheNewswire - March 23, 2020 - Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. ("DST" or the "Corporation") (CNSX:DST.CN) is pleased to announce positive results from a laboratory scale metallurgical test program utilizing DST's arsenic vitrification technology or GlassLock ProcessTM on legacy arsenical flues dusts from a major gold producer (the "Client") project located in West Africa.
The goal of this testing program was to identify the set of conditions for the recovery of gold and the successful stabilization of arsenic using DST's arsenic vitrification technology.
The gold was effectively recovered and the arsenic was successfully stabilized using DST's GlassLock ProcessTM. The glass product containing over 18% arsenic successfully met the requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ("EPA") Toxicity Characterization Leaching Procedure ("TCLP", Method 1311).
Mr. David Lemieux, the President and CEO of the Corporation stated, "The management of DST is very pleased with those results and look forward to continuing its collaboration with this major gold producer. The project is set to continue advancing to engineering phase and the technical team at DST continues to work with the Client. Ultimately, DST's objective is to provide a modular plant for arsenic stabilisation similarly to the recent project that was successfully completed in Southern Africa (Please refer to press release dated September 19, 2019)"
Those results are part of DST's strategy for commercialization through application of its CLEVR (cyanide-free gold extraction) and GlassLock technologies on high value added projects with major partners.
