Tinka metallurgical tests from Ayawilca result in high zinc recovery and a marketable zinc concentrate

Tinka Resources Limited (TSX-V: TK) is pleased to announce it has completed initial metallurgical flotation tests of zinc sulphide samples from the Ayawilca project, Peru. The test work proves the zinc sulphide mineralization from West Ayawilca is amenable to industry standard flotation processing. Zinc recoveries of 98% were produced in first pass (rougher) flotation tests from two typical grade composites. A zinc concentrate grade of 52% Zn was achieved in second pass (cleaner) flotation. Indium recoveries were similar to the zinc. read more
