NioBay Metals reports significant recovery rate at James Bay Niobium

Aug 14, 2020

Niobay Metals Inc. is reporting an update on the ongoing metallurgical test program performed at SGS Lakefield in Ontario for its James Bay Niobium Project, located in Northern Ontario.

Batch flotation tests on the gravity concentrate (refer to Corporate press release dated June 16, 2020) achieved impressive results with a niobium concentrate inside all required specifications, including silica level and a niobium recovery of 80.6 %.  Combined niobium recovery for both gravity circuit and flotation reached 78 %, which is in line with historical results.  Metallurgical test work is continuing and includes reagents screening and optimization, concentrate gravity and leaching test work. Flotation locked cycle tests and variability test work will follow to optimize niobium recovery, niobium concentrate grade and grade sensitivity. The company expects the program to continue for at least the next three months.
