SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSX: SIL.TO; NYSE American: SILV) has announced metallurgical test results with increased precious metal recoveries and enhanced process design changes for the ongoing Feasibility Study (FS) at the Las Chispas Property in Sonora, Mexico. Results following nine months of metallurgical test work on all veins shows "an increase of recoveries to 96.1% gold ("Au") and 93.9% silver ("Ag"), or 95.0% silver equivalent ("AgEq"); based on a ratio of 75 (Ag): 1(Au), with average metallurgical recoveries of 95% Au and 90% Ag. SilverCrest COO Pierre Beaudoin, commented:
"We are pleased that the 95% AgEq precious metal recoveries reported in our comprehensive test work has allowed us to address one of the optimization opportunities outlined in the PEA [Preliminary Economic Assessment]. This effort has contributed to the further de-risking of the conceptual operational profile of Las Chispas. The metallurgical samples represented over 1.4 tonnes of mineralized material from surface to depth with applied knowledge on geo-metallurgy with respect to low to high grades, structural domains, geochemistry and oxide to sulfide mineralization. With these results and design in-hand, we have initiated the Basic Engineering for the process plant. Details of this metallurgical work and process design will be included in the FS now anticipated in the summer of 2020."
At press time, SilverCrest stock is up about 1.3 percent.
