Delivering an economically viable processing method for the Panton Sill deposit
Research delivers a breakthrough in extracting gold and platinum group elements from the Panton Sill.
MRIWA project M0458 could allow commercial development of the Panton Sill platinum deposit in Western Australia’s Kimberley region.
Despite the value of metals within this resource, their distribution across a series of thin layers make extraction un-economic using conventional approaches. The greater processing efficiency delivered by this research could help make mining viable, bringing jobs and revenue to the state and regions.
The technical report summarising the findings of research project M0458 can be found here.
