Phosphoric Acid, Phosphates & Fertilizers Experts


Arafura Resources Limited is pleased to advise that vision of the Phase 3 bulk pre-leach pilot plant has been uploaded to its YouTube channel.

The bulk pre-leach pilot plant was the third phase of Arafura’s final piloting of the Nolans process flow sheet (see ARU ASX announcement 25 July 2017), and follows from the successful operation of the Phase 1 beneficiation and Phase 2 phosphate extraction pilot plants in December 2016 and March 2017, respectively. The Phase 3 pilot plant ran over five days in July and produced around 2 tonnes of Neodymium-Praseodymium (NdPr)-rich
pre-leach residue as feed to the upcoming Phase 4 acid bake pilot. NdPr is the key rare earth raw material input into permanent magnets that find widespread application in the automotive, clean energy, portable electronics and healthcare sectors.
