FYI Resources (FYI) has reported quality results from its extended high purity alumina (HPA) pilot plant trial.

Results from the second week of extended HPA pilot plant operations saw an average purity of 99.9978 per cent achieved during a week-long campaign undertaken in collaboration with Alcoa of Australia.

Operating from December 7 to 14, the joint development trial generated product, with samples from all stages of the process then sent to EAG Laboratories in New York for analysis.

High level glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS) was used to provide independent, high accuracy confirmation of the HPA grades.

In line with previous trial outcomes, the week two results showed continued high-quality grades being achieved across the samples, ranging in purity from 99.9983 per cent purity to 99.9973 per cent.

FYI Managing Director Roland Hill said the results were very pleasing as the company continues to trial different variations of operating conditions.

“It is a joint objective for the continual improvement and optimising of the HPA flowsheet by incorporating learnings from previous pilot plant trials and integrating them into the process design,” said Mr Hill.

“The latest test results demonstrate the progressive advances in the process flowsheet that the joint development is achieving as well as incremental improvement in the overall project value.”

The pilot plant program aims to support the joint HPA development project between FYI and Alcoa for the commercialisation of FYI’s product.   

A third extended pilot plant trial is scheduled to commerce on January 17.

FYI Resources last traded at 40 cents on January 7.
