The latest X-Ray Diffraction analysis conducted by IronRidge Resources Ltd (LON:IRR) on metallurgical composites has reaffirmed the dominance of spodumene as the main ore in the Ewoyaa project in Ghana.

That in turn provides confidence in the likelihood of a simple process flow-sheet design and good customer acceptance.

In addition, the analysis showed very low level to trace amounts of undesirable petalite, eucryptite, lepidolite and amblygonite.

"We are delighted that the XRD results for ten of our metallurgical composites continue to confirm spodumene as the dominant lithium mineral phase, with little to no contamination and consistency across all samples tested,” said Len Kolff, chief operating officer of IronRidge.

"This re-confirms results from the initial metallurgical test-work and provides further confidence in favourable spodumene consistency across the deposit footprint. All results to date point towards a simplified process flow-sheet design with remarkable mineralogical consistency in all ten metallurgical composites analysed."
