BBX Minerals Limited is a mineral exploration and mineral processing technology company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.

They have completed initial test work using a surface bulk sample of mafic intrusive from the Ema project, which demonstrated the ability to extract and recover 5E precious metals from an unprocessed sample.

Follow up test work and pilot plant testing have also been conducted, with positive results showing a significant increase in reported precious metals following the bioleaching process.

The Company is now shipping 200 kg of material from four drill holes for further pilot plant testing and optimisation, with the expectation that the process will be fully optimised by Q3 2023.

Static bioleaching testing will also commence in Q2 2023.
