Sovereign Metals delivers 30 t of ore from Malawi graphite project

P&C, based in Cape Town, South Africa, is a leading engineering consultant in the mining sector.

The material is representative of ore expected to be mined in the first ten years of production and will be used for advanced bulk laboratory scale test work to optimise technical elements of the previously announced Kasiya Pre-feasibility Study (PFS). These areas include larger-scale pumping, tailings characteristics, and dewatering.

Managing Director Frank Eagar commented: “I must commend our geology and logistics teams who, in a very short space of time, successfully extracted and delivered this large representative sample from Kasiya to Paterson & Cooke. This represents a significant step in our ongoing project delivery. Importantly, it also demonstrates the effectiveness of the day-to-day technical involvement of our strategic investor, Rio Tinto, in assisting Sovereign with the Kasiya Project optimisation and bringing this tier one project closer to development.”
