Cadillac Announces Results of Scoping Level Flotation Test Work
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/21/13 -- Cadillac Ventures
Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CDC)(PINKSHEETS:CADIF) ("Cadillac" or the
"Company") is pleased to announce the results of the Scoping Level
Flotation Test work on copper-nickel-PGM ore from the K1-1 deposit,
Thierry Project, Northwestern Ontario. In December 2012, Cadillac
collected a 30-35kg Mini Bulk Sample from within the K1-1 Pit area,
and a 30-35kg Mini Bulk Sample from outside the K1-1 pit. A fulsome
description of the sampling protocol and test work done is detailed
below. The results can be summarized as follows.
Copper liberation was excellent, with copper sulphides, occurring
mainly as chalcopyrite, 78% liberated in the pit area, and 75%
liberated from the outside pit sample. Nickel sulphides, occurring
mainly as pentlandite, were 53% liberated in the pit area, and 46%
liberated outside the pit. It was also noted that there is a high
nickel content resident in pyrrhotite and pyrite; the deliberate
recovery of these by flotation will improve overall nickel recovery.
Test work grades better than Resource grades
The results of the Flotation Test work also demonstrate better grades
than the grades of the existing 43-101 Resource at K1-1. The current
K1-1 resource is an economic Whittle Pit inferred resource of 53.6
million tonnes at 0.38% Cu and 0.10% Ni. The in pit Mini Bulk Sample
contained 0.52% Cu, 0.11% Ni, 0.068% Ni(S), 0.31 g/t PGM (Pt+Pd+Au),
and 2.6 g/t Ag, the outside pit Mini Bulk Sample contained 0.46% Cu,
0.092% Ni, 0.058% Ni(S), 0.60 g/t PGM, and 2.0 g/t Ag.
Test work sample selection and preparation, processes
Representative samples for K1-1 ore, in pit and outside the pit, were
determined by P & E Mining Consultants Inc., the designers of the
economic Whittle Pit in place at K1-1. The identified core intercepts
were identified in the field and the core was quarter sawn, bagged
and tagged under the supervision of Dr. Howard Lahti P.Geo. The two
mini-bulk samples were securely transported to the facilities of SGS
Minerals Services in Lakefield, Ontario. The test work completed by
SGS consisted of sample preparation, mineralogy characterization and
flotation testing. A total of twenty flotation tests and two locked
cycle tests were performed on the two Mini Bulk Samples.
