LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 24, 2012) - Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYP) is pleased to announce that following the recommendation of the technical committee, comprised of Typhoon-Aurizon Tandem members, Typhoon has granted SGS Canada Inc. a contract in order to proceed with a metallurgical study of the gold resources of the Fayolle Deposit.
Considering the results obtained to date on the Fayolle Project, Typhoon and Aurizon agree on the fact that this study will provide new information with regard to the gold recovery and will allow us to confirm if the mineralization is amenable to recovery by conventional processing methods.
The methods used to evaluate the gold recovery rate include:
-- Composite assaying
-- Grindability evaluation
-- Recovery by gravity
-- Recovery by leaching
-- Recovery by flotation
The work will be supervised by the technical committee of the Typhoon-Aurizon Tandem.
This stage of evaluation will be spread over a 12 to 16 week period and results from this study will be announced as soon as available.
The Typhoon-Aurizon Tandem is confident that the results obtained should propel the Fayolle Project towards another important phase of development.
