Aruma Resources (ASX:AAJ) produces Lithium Concentrate from metallurgy test work

Gained-troughed-platinum specialist Aruma Resources (ASX:AAJ) says early-stage testing at its Mt Deans Lithium project in Western Australia has delivered a lithium concentrate with a "grade of 3.1 times Li2O feed".

Aruma Resources also says recoveries of 80% lithium oxide into 25% of the mass were achieved.

Other metals, including tantalum and tin, were also separated and accumulated by flotation, which were then upgraded by simple gravity methods. 

Aruma Resources says it's now moving to carry out new test work on fresh outcropping pegmatite samples, which may lead to further improvements on the initial results with the lithium concentrate.
