Gunson Resources is fast-tracking an Australian silver, copper and cobalt joint venture with Terrace Mining. Gunson/Terrace aims to mine the Coburn heavy sands deposit in Western Australia, and will study the feasibility of producing copper, silver, and cobalt metal from shallow deposits at Mount Gunson in South Australia.
The deal with Terrace Mining will see Terrace spend $2.5 million on a bankable feasibility study for mining of the shallow open pittable MG14 and Windabout deposits excised from the joint venture Gunson has with Noranda Pacific, Proactive Investors reported.
A proposed flow sheet is currently being tested by Terrace that utilizes cyanide to leach copper and silver. Early tests show 90% copper recovery into solution.
