European Electric Metals Commences Underground Sampling for Metallurgical Tests

March 28, 2019

  • EVX geologists onsite and collecting samples
  • samples to be shipped to a testing facility within 15 days


European Electric Metals Inc. (TSX-V:EVX) (OTC PINK:EVXXF) ("EVX" or "Company") is pleased to report that the Company’s geologists are on site collecting samples from the Skroska cobalt-nickel laterite mine.

The samples will be taken from several sampling points that were previously sampled during the Company’s Phase 1 underground sampling program (see news release dated January 28, 2019 on the Company’s website) and expected to be completed within the week. Of the samples collected, 30 kgs will be sent to a R&D laboratory of a company operating a High Pressure Acid Leach (HPAL) plant in the next 15 days. The laboratory will test for the amenability of the Skroska nickel-laterite to HPAL. HPAL is a commercially proven process for recovery of cobalt and nickel from nickel laterite.

EVX Chief Executive Officer and Director, Fred Tejada, states, “Initial work underground by EVX generated impressive nickel and cobalt assay results and the metallurgical testing now represents the next step in advancing the project. Our team is onsite and working underground on this sampling program and we look forward to the results of this testing.”

The Company also wishes to announce that George Gorzynski has resigned as a Director while remaining as an Advisor. The Company thanks Mr. Gorzynski for his invaluable services during the last twelve years and is pleased that he will continue his role as an Advisor as we work to advance Skroska.

Jose Mario Castelo Branco, EuroGeol, a Qualified Person under the meaning of Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and Chief Geologist of the Company, is responsible for the technical content of this news release.
