BREAKING:Monarques Gold Confirms Pit Constrained Resource on its Mckenzie Break

  • The mineral resource estimate for McKenzie Break was prepared for two scenarios:
    • Scenario 1: A pit constrained Indicated resource of 48,133 ounces and Inferred resource of 14,897 ounces, and an underground Indicated resource of 53,448 ounces and Inferred resource of 49,130 ounces, for a total of 165,608 ounces of gold.
    • Scenario 2: An underground Indicated resource of 85,059 ounces and Inferred resource of 58,373 ounces, for a total of 143,432 ounces of gold.
  • Monarques Gold now has a combined measured and indicated resource of more than 3 million ounces of gold

Message: Directional solidification


As a follow up to your previous answer to Dufjam, I would like some clarification about “Directional solidification”. From what I understand about directional solidification, when the metal solidifies it pushes the impurities toward the metal that is still in a liquid state, therefore, when the metal is completely solidified, you end up with an ingot that has one side purer than the other side. I'm assuming that, in order to make solar grade wafers, the less pure side of the ingot has to be cut away first. The question is, if what is said above is correct, do you expect that the less pure part of the ingot could be sold as metallurgical grade silicon, in other words, in the Purevap process, would metallurgical grade silicon be a by-product of the solar grade silicon production precess ?




Thanks !
