Proactive Investors: Magnetite Mines buoyed by peer review that confirms Razorback process plant design
Magnetite Mines Ltd (ASX:MGT) welcomes the completion of a peer review of the process plant for the Razorback Iron Ore Project in South Australia with outcomes confirming the feasibility of the Hatch-engineered flowsheet and plant design.
The company’s objective is to produce high-grade magnetite concentrate with grades above 67.5% iron, with the process flowsheet designed to process iron ores for minimum operating cost.
An independent technical team completed the assessment across four key areas – process flowsheet; equipment selection, including crushing, HPGR, milling, dewatering and filtration; materials handling aspects; and metallurgical results.
