ELKO, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 30, 2020 / Lithium Corporation (OTCQB:LTUM) ("LTUM" or "the Company"), a North American company focused on energy metals for the growing energy storage sector and high tech industries, is pleased to announce that work has been continuing on the Company's 25% owned subsidiary Summa, LLC (Summa's) Tonopah Tailings project. Preliminary sampling in the Fall of 2019 indicated that the work done previously by Summa and Tenneco adequately portrays the tenor and the extent of the mineralized tailings, however it does appear there is an opportunity to prove up a higher grade core zone that could be critical to start-up economics.
In the course of the recent analytical work done, geochemical characterization of the tailings was undertaken to determine the general nature of the tailings. Sampling indicates that while anomalous or somewhat elevated levels of base metals occur here, there are no significant deleterious or hazardous elements contained in the historic Belmont tailings.
Further analytical work has determined that the tailings are amenable to a dilute static cyanide leach, with significant amounts of precious metals reporting after short duration leaches. However due to the very fine particle size of the tailings it is envisioned that processing will necessarily entail agitated leaching. More work has yet to be done on this account to determine what the optimum leach duration would be. Summa is also exploring other avenues with respect to tailings processing that could possibly be considerably more environmentally benign.
