The press release is quoted as saying:
Mr. Richard Gowans, P. Eng., has been engaged to provide oversight, guidance and support for the next phase of metallurgical test work. The goal of the next round of metallurgical testing will be to build upon the successful results obtained by Hazen Research (see Press Release: August 12, 2010). The metallurgical testing program will provide sufficiently detailed information to identify an optimal flow sheet for inclusion in the prefeasibility study. Richard is currently the President and Principle Metallurgist for Micon International Limited, mineral industry consultants, will be working directly with Quest’s Vice-President of Operations.
Peter J. Cashin, Quest’s President & CEO, said:
Richard’s extensive resume, particularly in the important areas of mineral processing and hydrometallurgy, speaks for itself and we anticipate that he will be an important asset to Quest in optimizing the process flowsheet design for the ultimate B-Zone mine operation.”
