Symbol Mining Limited advised that following very encouraging metallurgical test work in the third quarter 2018, it has entered into a formal contract for the procurement, construction and commissioning of a density separation processing plant for the high-grade zinc and lead Macy Project in Nigeria. The plant is based on conventional jig technology. Mining at the Macy Project commenced in July 2018 and is currently mining ore above the resource grade of 18.3% Zn, confirming the world-class high-grade Macy resource. The plant will complement the current processing plant to capture additional tonnage from rejected lower grade (< 10% Zn) material and is expected to greatly enhance the economics and flexibility of the Macy Project.

During the third quarter 2018, a low-grade zinc sample (8.1% Zn) was sent to Independent Metallurgical Operations Pty Ltd in Perth, Western Australia to conduct process development metallurgical test work.
