Upon closing of the Subsidiary financing (see news release dated May 11,2022) CuMo has started work on the ore sorting studies that form part of the overall metallurgical analysis required for a pre-feasibility study. The work will be focused on optimizing ore sorting techniques to determine the optimal percentages of mined material that could be sent to the mill for processing. In the current 43-101 Independent Preliminary Economic Analysis (SRK, June 2020) approximately 72% of the material mined is designed to be sent for processing in a 150,000 ton per day mill. The purpose of the ore sorting study is to optimize and reduce this amount of material processed and reduce the size of the mill and corresponding Capex, while maintaining the metal production. Initial work will focus on visually analyzing all holes drilled to date to determine the percentages of material that could be processed. This will be followed by physical scanning using combinations of various techniques for bulk and particle sorting to confirm those percentages by actual grades. Previous preliminary work has shown that ore sorting is a workable process at CuMo (see news release January 24, 2017). The overall aim of the program is to reduce the mill size and thus the capital cost of the processing component.
With the significant increase the metal prices third party interest in both of Multi-Metal projects, Cumo and Bleiberg, has increased and discussions are on going in regard to potential financings and joint ventures.
