Golden Tag Resources (GOG) provided metallurgical test results from mineralization contained within the San Diego Project’s Fernandez Zone.

76 per cent of the silver (Ag) and 84 per cent of the lead (Pb) were recovered to a bulk concentrate containing 51 per cent Pb, 4700 g/t Ag, 3.11 per cent zinc (Zn), 5.27 per cent copper (Cu), and 2.23 g/t gold (Au).

Cu and Au recoveries within the bulk concentrate had significant improvements over previous test work.

84 per cent of the zinc was recovered to a concentrate grading 47 per cent zinc.

Golden Tag’s President and CEO, Greg McKenzie, commented that this was the first ever metallurgical test from within the Fernandez Zone, and the results indicate conventional flotation techniques could be utilized to produce a commercial saleable concentrate from a sample taken from the Fernandez Zone, in particular within the Endoskarn mineralization.

“When we compare these results with previous test work performed on other zones at San Diego, we are encouraged by the improvements within the bulk Pb concentrate, in particular the Ag concentrate grade as well as higher recoveries of Au and Cu.

Typical reagent regimes and grind size (P80 109 µm) were used in the testing. We are confident that additional test work and applied optimization could result in additional improvements in recoveries and concentrate grades. Additional metallurgical test work is being planned to be performed in 2023.”

The company is continuing with further metallurgical test work.

The San Diego Project is located in Durango, Mexico.

Golden Tag Resources is a Toronto-based mineral resource exploration company.

Golden Tag (GOG) is up 3.13 per cent, trading at $0.16 per share as of 11:55 am ET.
