NiWest Nickel Laterite Project - Key Process Patents Granted

NiWest Nickel Laterite Project


GME Resources (ASX: GME) is pleased to advise that its patent applications for acid regeneration and ore pelletisation to be utilised in the proposed heap leach flow sheet for its
100% owned NiWest Nickel Laterite Project (NiWest) have been granted.
The patent application process has taken the Company close to four years and provides important legal certainty about the utilisation of the Heap Leaching and Direct Solvent Extraction - Electrowinning process proposed in the NiWest Scoping Study, released on 11
December 2013.
The study confirmed the technical and potential economic viability for a development of this type (see ASX announcement dated 11 December 2013) which would produce 14,000 tonnes of nickel cathode and 540 tonnes of cobalt over a minimum 20 year mine life.
The unique acid regeneration process which has been developed by the Company for the NiWest Project is designed to reduce acid consumption and operating costs by allowing a significant proportion of the acid applied in the heap leach stage to be reused. Test work to date indicates that up to 30% of the consumed acid can be regenerated.
The pelletisation process is designed to stabilise the ore and commence the leaching cycle prior to the pellets being stacked on the heap. Both leach cycle and stabilisation of the heap is a critical aspect in any heap leaching operation.
Large scale metallurgical test work to be undertaken this year is expected to further refine these processes and in particular investigate ways to increase the percentage of acid that can be regenerated.
The Company is currently reviewing strategic alternatives to progress the next stage of detailed metallurgical test work and to restart the Feasibility Study. Further updates on these alternatives will be provided in due course.
