Nippon Dragon Resources Inc. Provides Test Results of 2 Thermal Fragmentation Trials in Australia

Nippon Dragon Resources Inc. provided summary information regarding its Thermal Fragmentation activities in Australia with its distributor SAFESCAPE. Thermal fragmentation activities in Australia has consisted of two trials, one of which was conducted at narrow gold vein mine located in Victoria in order to evaluate several key points of the equipment and process, including but not limited to its efficiency and versatility. Three holes were made, two in waste rock and one in a gold bearing quartz reef. The equipment performed well in horizontal, downhole and uphole configurations. In the uphole configuration adjustments were required to account for the rapid rate of fragmentation of the material. Further metallurgical testwork on the ore mined generated a lot of interest. It was discovered that a significant portion of the coarse grained gold separated from the quartz during mining, additionally, while the thermal material is much smaller than blasted material they found that it also contained inclusions and micro fractures on a microscopic scale which resulted in significant improvements in comminution costs when compared to blasted and crushed material of the same genesis. The second trial was conducted at a narrow vein gold mine in Western Australia and was the first step to engage with the WA Department of Mining and Petroleum to obtain approval to employ the thermal fragmentation mining process for a trial in Western Australia. The equipment performed well and fragmentation of the orebody was very good. A trial in a portion of the orebody that consisted mainly of sulfide minerals resulted in very fast fragmentation however minor SO2 was generated, a situation that is avoidable by the installation of a standard scrubber unit to capture the exhaust and send it to a return airway. In future, all new thermal fragmentation extraction work in sulfide ore bodies will include a scrubber as part of a complete system.
