Toronto, Ontario. – September 9, 2020 – Roscan Gold Corporation (“Roscan” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: ROS; FSE:2OJ; OTC:RCGCF) is pleased to report on bottle roll test work recently completed on crushed rejects of diamond drill samples from the Mankouke South Target. Test work has been completed at ALS Laboratory in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in August 2020 and recorded an overall metallurgical recovery of 90% from 139 samples (Table 1).
The preliminary test work (bottle roll) in 2020 was focused on defining the cyanide recoveries that are expected from the Mankouke South project material. Additional work is still required for the metallurgical process at Mankouke South, but no significant metallurgical issues related to gold recovery have been identified from the work to date.
Nana Sangmuah, President and CEO, stated, “Preliminary metallurgical testing shows high recoveries of up to 96.5% in the Mankouke South Target. Further metallurgical test work will be completed in 2021 to determine the variation in gold recoveries between the oxide, transition zones and fresh rock.
We are very excited and encouraged about these initial results, which clearly indicate the potential to recover the gold in a conventional manner.”
