Milestone 56% Scandium Phosphate Recovery in First Phase Metallurgical Testing at the HAT Deposit:
Doubleview has reported the metallurgical process and significance of achieving 56% scandium (“Sc”) recovery to a scandium phosphate precipitate, in the first attempt of sequential purification of HAT deposit flotation tailings in early 2023. The HAT Copper-Gold-Scandium-Cobalt deposit is located in the Golden Triangle region of the Atlin Mining District in British Columbia.
Initial independent laboratory tests completed by Coffey, Tetra Tech were designed to demonstrate the validity of the underlying process chemistry. Achieving 56% Sc recovery shows that primarily, the response to the treatment program was predictable and as anticipated.
Expectations are that scandium recoveries in the range of 80% to 90% will ultimately be achievable with further process development and optimisation. Production of a phosphate lends itself to the solution purification scheme currently under test. Once recovered, scandium can be converted to other forms. Alternative treatment strategies are also being considered.
EUR ING Andrew Carter B.Sc. CEng. MIMMM, MSAIMM SME of Coffey, Tetra Tech noted “Even at moderate recoveries, the HAT deposit has the potential to meet international demand for scandium for the foreseeable future. As scandium is a by-product of a waste stream, recovery is not the fundamental driver, cost is. If it can be demonstrated that scandium can be recovered at an acceptable cost, then scandium has the potential to add significant value to the HAT deposit. A techno-economic evaluation for the production of scandium as a by-product of HAT copper-gold production will be evaluated on conclusion of the test work phase.”
Mr. Carter also noted that “Reported recovery rates for other projects, either in planning or under development, are 76.2% at the Flemington Project on the low end, and 88.0% at the Syerston Project on the upper end. This positions the potential for Doubleview’s HAT deposit favourably as it is targeting an 80-90% recovery rate, however it is noted that other scandium projects currently under consideration are treating laterites.
Why is scandium a critical mineral?
Scandium is the most effective known microalloying element that can strengthen aluminium, while also offering improved flexibility, resistance to heat and corrosion, and lighter weight.
What are the critical minerals in BC?
Many of the minerals on Canada’s critical minerals list are found or produced in British Columbia, including aluminum, antimony, bismuth, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, germanium, indium, lead, molybdenum, niobium, silver, tantalum, tungsten, and zinc.
Note: There is no Scandium deposit in the history of British Columbia
What are 3 important uses of scandium?
An aluminium-scandium alloy has been used in Russian MIG fighter planes, high-end bicycle frames and baseball bats. Scandium iodide is added to mercury vapour lamps to produce a highly efficient light source resembling sunlight.
What are the critical minerals in geology?
Critical minerals such as copper, lithium, nickel, cobalt and rare earth elements are essential components in many of today’s rapidly growing clean energy technologies – from wind turbines and electricity networks to electric vehicles.
What are 3 important minerals in Canada?
Canada’s top five mineral products by value for 2021 were gold, coal, iron ore concentrates, potash, and copper. Their combined value was $37.5 billion, accounting for two thirds of the total value of mineral production.
Minerals and the economy
What are 3 important minerals mined in Canada?
Canada is one of the top producers of zinc, iron ore and copper. Approximately 30 mining operations in Canada are sources for copper, a critical mineral needed for clean technologies. Base metals contributed more than $9.1 billion to Canada’s GDP in 2022.
