Silver Sun Resource Corp. ("Silver Sun" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has contracted SGS de Mexico S.A. de C.V to carry out metallurgical test-work on the mineralized stockpiles from the Company's Zacatecas properties.
The test program will consist of a Cyanide Leach Bottle-Roll Test to generate kinetic gold/silver extraction curves and to determine Sodium Cyanide and Lime consumptions. Further, two Flotation Tests will be performed on each sample to identify Primary Flotation, Scavenger Flotation and two cleaning stages. All concentrates will be analyzed for Au, Ag, Pb, Zn, Cu and Fe.
Results from the Metallurgical Test Program are expected to be available to the Company in approximately 8 weeks.
"This is the next critical step in our Company's goal towards production of our Zacatecas project", states Silver Sun's President, Mark McLeary. "Together with the property survey and average ore grades, the Company will have a measurable idea as to the value of its stockpile".
