Exploration Sample Analysis:

We had shipped a total of 1,895 samples (1,250 kg) to an Australian Laboratory for total heavy mineral (THM) analysis and received a total of 2,065 test results on the 12th of October 2022, then further VHM of composite samples were analyzed by another reputable Australian Laboratory. Based on the results received, we found average THM is around 8.5% across the whole site (4,000 Hectare) with a 30-meter depth, and average VHM is approximately 4.81%, the average Garnet is approximately 8.74% Magnetite is 1.79%. We expect that the last batch of VHM results will be received before Christmas this year.

After all spiral equipment arrived at our site in June 2022, it took two months for site construction and spiral installation under the supervision from an overseas expert.

The THM quality has been greatly improved with the shaking table integration. The company decided to order a magnetic separator in October 2022, and was delivered to the site in December 2022.  Under the MoU with the Institute of Mining, Mineralogy and Metallurgy (IMMM), BCSIR, Ministry of Science and Technology Bangladesh, our THM has been proceeded through an electromagnetic separation plant in IMMM.  Six products have been generated, Zircon, Rutile, Ilmenite, Garnet, Magnetite and Quartz (high percentage silica sands). All products were sent to Australia for further metallurgy analysis in December 2022. Based on the results, we will research further to find the most suitable mining plan for our project.
