A Preliminary Mineralogical and Metallurgical Study on a 39.8 kg sample of drill core from the Good Hope Niobium Project, 45 kilometres northwest of the town of Marathon, Ontario. The Study, carried out by Process Mineralogical Consulting Ltd. (“PMC”), of Maple Ridge, B.C., was conducted to determine if the niobium-bearing carbonatites from the Good Hope Niobium Project were amenable to concentration by gravity and flotation methods. These are conventional methods used for Niobium recovery. The sample used for PMC’s study came from a representative sample as chosen by PMC from drill hole PGH-18-10A from Plato’s previous drill program (See Press Release dated September 19, 2018).
The initial preliminary mineralogical and metallurgical study yielded encouraging results.
