On condition that 100% of the graphite focus produced from the Uatnan Mining Venture is destined for the battery market, preserving flake sizes is now not thought-about within the processing route. Given this consideration, the flowsheet was simplified by decreasing the variety of each sharpening and cleaner flotation phases from 4 to 2. This modification minimizes the variety of grinding mills and flotation cells required, decreasing each the capital and working prices for the Uatnan Mining Venture.

The flowsheet consists of a mineral sizer to cut back the dimensions of the run of mine (“ROM”) mineral earlier than it’s fed to a SAG mill for major grinding. The bottom mineral then undergoes rougher flotation, after which the reground and scavenged focus is mixed with the rougher focus for additional processing. The focus then undergoes two extra phases of regrinding, first in a ball mill forward of the primary cleansing step, then a second regrind in a tower mill forward of secondary cleansing. The ensuing focus undergoes a closing deliming stage to take away low-grade minus 20-micron particles to maximise the ultimate focus grade. The concentrator tailings are filtered and delivered to the tailings storage facility. The focus is filtered and dried earlier than being trucked 285 km to Baie-Comeau for transport to market.
