Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. – January 5, 2021) – Braveheart Resources Inc. (TSXV: BHT) (OTCQB:RIINF) ("Braveheart" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of an ore sorting study for its 100% owned Bull River copper, gold and silver mine project. Braveheart has engaged ABH Engineering (“ABH”), a world leader in ore sorting technology assessment and installation, to complete this study.
Ore sorting or pre-concentration of mineralized material has the potential benefits of increasing the mill feed grade which can result in an improved net present value (“NPV”) of a mining project. Potential benefits include a lowering of operating costs on a unit basis, a reduction in the volume of fine tailings created through the milling process and the overall volume of material transported to the tailings storage facility, a reduction in power consumption particularly in the grinding circuit and a lower overall environmental impact.
Braveheart plans to advance the Bull River mine project in a phased approach wherein a surface stockpile of mineralized material will provide the initial feedstock to an up-graded 700 tonne per day mill. Ore sorting capability could be introduced ahead of the grinding circuit.
Braveheart recently announced the commencement of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) for its newly acquired and 100% owned Thierry Mine Project (“Thierry”) near Pickle Lake, Ontario. Thierry is a past-producer of copper, nickel, palladium, platinum, gold and silver with similar copper grades to the Bull River mine project. The Thierry underground is currently flooded and there is no milling facility on site. Depending on the results of the ore sorting study at the Bull River mine project and the PEA at Thierry, Braveheart may decide to incorporate ore sorting capability into the preliminary mill design for Thierry.
Braveheart’s disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Ian Berzins P.Eng., who serves as president, chief executive officer and a director of the Company and is a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101.
