(businesspress24) - FYI advanced drilling program

FYI Resources Limited (the Company or FYI) is pleased to announce the commencement of an advanced drilling program at its Cadoux kaolin project designed to provide additional project information to the Companys high purity alumina (HPA) process design testwork.

CSA Global were appointed (see ASX release 28.3.2018) to design the drill program for the Cadoux kaolin project to augment the on-going metallurgical test work and to benefit the broader pre-feasibility study (PFS).

The program is planned for 1,200m of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling and will also include both extension and in-fill drilling on the existing resource. Additional supporting technical programs will also be conducted concurrently to the drilling.

Located approximately 220kms northeast of Perth, the 100% owned Cadoux kaolin project is the foundation of the Companys HPA strategy and was selected for its superior kaolin quality and characteristics. FYI is currently undertaking testwork for its suitability for HPA processing and refining. Testwork to date has been very positive (achieving targeted 99.99% grade and 97.1% mass recovery of Al2O3 / HPA) which has encouraged FYI to commence a PFS. The PFS is expected to be completed in June 2018.

The RC drill program is designed to accomplish the following:

- Deliver supplementary sample material for advanced metallurgical test work and process design for HPA;
- Provide additional laboratory analysis information on the deposit;
- Further define the extent of the kaolin resource;
- Allow for an upgrade of the current resource; and
- Provide additional quality assurance and control measures (QA/QC) for the deposit _ FYI _advanced drilling programv2prcom.001.jpeg

Company statement
Remarking on the proposed drilling program, Mr Roland Hill, FYI Managing Director, said This drilling program is significant to our overall HPA strategy in that it will provide us with a number of key points of project information but will more importantly improve our knowledge to assist with determining future developments. The benefit we will gain from the program is substantial given what is planned for further advanced metallurgical testwork, in contributing to the overall quality of the resource, and, to our understanding of the feedstock potential of the Cadoux deposit.
