Delta Mining and Exploration Commence Processing Mini-Bulk Sample From the Homestead Kimberliteadmin
Delta Mining & Exploration is pleased to announce that processing of the Homestead kimberlite 30 tonne mini-bulk surface sample collected by APEX Geoscience Limited (“APEX”) at Delta’s Grassrange District Properties in Montana is underway. The processing began on July 24, at the Saskatchewan Research Council’s (“SRC”), 1 tonne Dense Media Separation (“DMS”) plant in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
More specifically, kimberlite is passed through a primary jaw crusher, with -12mm material fed directly into the DMS. All material is subsequently reduced through secondary crushing. DMS concentrates are submitted for caustic fusion and the residues hand sorted to extract diamonds.
An APEX representative is onsite during the processing to ensure quality control/quality assurance (“QA/QC”) and proper chain of custody is maintained. The SRC also maintains a regimented QA/QC.
Delta’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Brett Rodli, cited that “the results should be in hand by the end of August and Delta will release them once received along with plans for future exploration.”
