Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 26, 2022) – Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE: GEMS) (OTC Pink: TLOOF) (FSE: B2I0) (the “Company” or “Infinity Stone“) is pleased to announce that it has successfully upgraded a sample of graphite from its Rockstone Graphite Property to 96.1% Cg.
- Infinity Stone successfully upgrades Rockstone graphite flotation concentrate to 96.1% Cg through combined pressurized alkaline leach (PAL) and atmospheric acid leach (AL) process.
- Infinity Stone is carrying out further testing at SGS Lakefield with the intent of further upgrading these results to battery grade.
Metallurgical Testing Results
A flotation test of one sample of graphitic material from the Rockstone Graphite Property was completed in 2021 by SGS Canada Ltd of Lakefield, Ontario. This previous flotation test successfully upgraded the sample to ~80% Cg (graphitic carbon) which was short of the 95% Cg purity goal. A subsequent testing procedure has now been completed with the goal of upgrading this flotation concentrate to at least the 95% Cg purity goal.
The scope of the current test program included chemical head characterization and two pressurized alkaline leaches (PAL) with atmospheric acid leaching (AL).
Through this two-stage process, the original graphite flotation concentrate was successfully upgraded from approximately 80% Cg purity to an average of 95% Cg purity, with a maximum purity of 96.1% Cg, with an overall mass loss of approximately 20%.
About The Rockstone Project
Rockstone Graphite Project is located 45 km west of the seaway port at the City of Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada. The Project has excellent access by logging haul roads that connect to paved/gravel roads with nearby railways and a shipping port. Based upon the reprocessed Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) survey completed by Sabina Silver Corporation in 2007, there are 18 drill-ready electromagnetic targets. Greencastle’s drilling in 2012 consisted of 4 diamond drillholes (916 metres). Diamond drill hole GC-12-01 intersected a 24 metre interval averaging 0.82% zinc and 0.15% copper within a graphitic argillite unit. Analysis of the pulps for the 24 metres returned a value of 25% Cg (graphitic carbon) using a LECO analytical procedure. Rockstone graphite morphology appears to be highly-ordered hexagonal graphite crystallites and crystallite agglomerates, likely formed by hydrothermal activity at a formation temperature of 702C.
