Proactive Investors reported that Montezuma Mining Company Ltd has appointed two consulting groups to carry out key sections of commercial studies for the Butcherbird Manganese Project in Western Australia.

Simulus Engineers will complete the initial study into the hydrometallurgical plant design. This work will assess the commercial and engineering parameters around the scale-up of the hydrometallurgical flowsheet.

Metal Bulletin will provide a study of the high purity manganese markets including price and volume assessments taking into account current trends and projected future trends.

This study will look at EMM, EMD and manganese sulphate for lithium-ion batteries.

In late 2017 Montezuma advised that test work on the hydrometallurgical processing of Butcherbird ores had exceeded expectations and achieved the required specification to produce high purity manganese products.

Last month the company announced the start of a scoping study into the production of high purity manganese using the innovative hydrometallurgical processing route it developed in conjunction with CSIRO.

The scoping study is expected to take up to six months to complete and if it delivers positive results, Montezuma will consider a decision to proceed to a preliminary feasibility study.
