Toronto, Ontario - September 27, 2012 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks newswire) - Atlanta Gold Inc. (TSXV: ATG; OTCQX:ATLDF) ("Atlanta Gold" or "the Company") announces that it expects that significant economic and environmental benefits will be realized from using a pilot processing method which is currently being used by Knife River Corporation at the Gold Hill Mine located approximately 48 air km from the Atlanta Project. As previously announced on July 5th and August 12th, the Company processed a 107-tonbulk sample at the Knife River processing facility and expects to announce the assay results by the end of September.
Pit run material is crushed to a predetermined size and the finely crushed product is fed through a large efficient sluice box that uses water to float lighter rock to separate the gold, silver and heavy metals including gold bearing arsenic from the crushed material without using chemicals and with recycled water, causing no discharge. The gold particles (free gold) and the sulphide concentrates then require further processing to become a gold concentrate plus a sulphide concentrate containing a gold sulphide mix. The free gold will be sent to a refinery and the sulphide concentrate will be sent to autoclaves to recover the additional gold and silver tied-up in the sulphides. The initial crushing and sluicing is inexpensive enough to allow the Company to process even low-grade material through the recovery plant.
Ernie Simmons, President and CEO of the Company states: "This type of processing facility will allow the Company to advance the project reducing capital investment, reducing power consumption and other operating costs associated with a conventional mill. In addition, this is an environmentally sound method by using and recycling water, eliminating water discharge and by collecting and concentrating all heavy metals. Atlanta Gold has been evaluating and is proposing to use improved technologies to minimize the surface disturbance and reduce the projected environmental impact in Atlanta as the Company moves forward to production. A clean environment is a common goal"
