MGX receives bulk sample permit.
MGX Minerals Inc. reported that the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines has granted the company a Bulk Sample Permit under Section 17(3) of the Mineral Tenure Act Regulation, which authorizes MGX to extract a 100-ton sample of mineralized material from the Driftwood Creek magnesium project. The bulk sample will be mined, crushed and shipped to the laboratories of Industrial Furnace Co. (1FCO) in Rochester, N.Y., for pilot plant testing. MGX signed a Memorandum of Understanding in June to acquire calcining equipment specifically for Driftwood Creek.
Results of pilot plant testing will determine final specifications to optimize the design and construction parameters of industrial-sized kilns to process mineralized material from Driftwood Creek. MGX also plans to make representative samples of caustic calcined magnesia (CCM) and dead-burned magnesia (DBM) available to potential customers for further evaluation. MGX aims to provide a secure, long-term supply of magnesium oxide to the North American market.
