AfriTin Mining, an African tech-metals mining company with a portfolio of mining and exploration assets in Namibia in tin, lithium and tantalum, with its flagship asset, the Uis Tin Mine in Namibia, has provided an update on its by-product and metallurgical process development programme.
Anthony Viljoen (CEO) Commented:
“The metallurgical test work results confirm the production potential of separate saleable lithium and tantalum concentrates. Implementation of these by-product streams could substantially transform the overall economics and unit cost of production for the current Phase 1 facility.
“More importantly, it provides an outstanding platform for the future large-scale Phase 2 facility with a planned production capacity of more than 8 times the current facility. By implementing the pilot phase development of these separate elements, the Company aims to take advantage of the burgeoning technology metals market by fast tracking the by-product streams into production.
We are encouraged by the rapid progress on our metallurgical test work programme in support of our goal of becoming a major player in the tech-metal mining sector.”
