It’s a case of disappointing results being trumped by findings much more positive. Equitas Resources TSXV:EQT planned to add a gravity plant to its Cajueiro gold project in central Brazil, hoping to increase the modest operation’s recovery. Another stage in the project’s incremental development was to follow—a carbon-in-leach plant for further improvement. But, the company announced August 18, metallurgical tests gave gravity a failing grade. Those studies did, however, find conventional CIL results even better than anticipated. That now puts Cajueiro on the fast track as Equitas skips Phase I, advancing straight to CIL.
