Share Price of gold explorer De Grey Mining Ltd [ASX:DEG] are up today after releasing the results of their metallurgical tests at Falcon and Crow zones.

High gold recoveries at Falcon and Crow
De Grey announced high gold recoveries at Falcon and Crow zones today. The news comes after announcing similar results at Brolga and Aquila too.
At Falcon they hit an average metallurgical recovery of 94.2% on five separate composites of mineralisation (two oxide and three primary). Average head grade composites were 1.4 grams per tonne of gold and went from 0.9 g/t Au to 2.1 g/t Au. The overall average tail grade was less than 0.1 g/t of gold.
At Crow, average metallurgical recovery was 96.8% from five separate composites of primary mineralisation. Average head grade of composites was 2.0 g/t gold, and these went from 1.3 g/t Au to 3.8 g/t Au. Overall average tail grade was less than 0.1 g/t Au.
Glenn Jardine, De Grey’s Managing Director, said of the results:
‘The new metallurgical testwork from the Falcon and Crow deposits at Hemi continues to demonstrate encouraging gold recoveries. […] The consistently low tail grades achieved in testwork at Hemi will be carried through into project studies and evaluations.
‘Metallurgical testwork continues to provide confidence in the multiple pathways available to achieve high gold recoveries from Hemi and the regional deposits across the Mallina gold project.’
