VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 11, 2021 /CNW/ - Black Mammoth Metals Corporation (TSXV: BMM) (OTC: LQRCF) ("Black Mammoth" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has contracted Hazen Research, Inc. of Golden, Colorado ("Hazen") to begin gravity separation testing of a 111kg sample of material that Hazen has received from the Company's 100% owned Happy Cat gold property in Nevada. The sample was collected and shipped in December 2020 by Adam Knight, Professional Mining Engineer who is independent of the Company.
The objective of the testing at Hazen is to identify what gravity separation process may be optimal for further tests, including a larger pilot test. The testing is intended to further the Company's understanding of the gold grades and recovery rates as there may be an opportunity to conduct a bulk sampling operation at Happy Cat property. The initial gravity separation test has begun with the analysis and reporting expected to be completed by late January or February.
Hazen Research, Inc. was founded in 1961 and is a medium sized independent industrial research and development ("R&D") firm specializing in flowsheet and scaleup R&D from scoping experimental test work to demonstration-scale pilot plants for the mining industry and other industries.
The 111kg sample was taken from the near surface gold anomaly at Happy Cat property referred to in the Company's news release dated November 25, 2020. The gold anomaly occurs within a 600-metre diameter circular area where past exploration included RC drilling, trenching, auger drilling and sampling. Past metallurgical work using an iCON gravity concentrator and a Deister concentrating table suggested that the near surface anomaly is amenable to gravity separation. This past testing recovered visible particulate gold along with fine gold suggesting a nugget effect.
Adam Knight, PE and Independent Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 approved the technical information contained in this news release.
About Black Mammoth Metals Corporation:
Black Mammoth has 11,081,871 shares issued and outstanding, 11,556,871 fully diluted.
Along with the Company's 100% owned Happy Cat Gold Property, subject to underlying royalties (transaction subject to TSX-V approval), Black Mammoth has a 100% interest, subject to underlying royalties, in the Blanco Creek gold property in central Idaho which hosts three historic underground mines along 3550 meters (11,644 feet) of strike on the north-east trending regional Blanco Shear Zone. Exploration by two previous operators identified a geological target for the Blanco Creek property in the order of 1.7 to 2.48 million tons, grading 0.20 to 0.33 oz/ton Au (1.54 to 2.24 million tonnes, grading 6.85 to 11.31 g/tonne Au); see the Company's press release dated February 14th, 2017.
Black Mammoth cautions investors to note the potential quantity and grade of the geological target are conceptual in nature. A qualified person has not completed sufficient work to classify the geological target as mineral resources as defined by NI 43-101, and it is uncertain if future exploration will result in the target being delineated as mineral resources.
