Diversified resource and technology company MGX Minerals Inc. (CSE: XMG) (FKT: 1MG) (OTCQB: MGXMF) this morning announced that the company has decided to proceed with its partnership with Highbury Energy, Inc. The two companies intend to develop a detailed thermochemical gasification process to extract metals such as nickel, vanadium, cobalt, and hydrogen from petroleum coke ("Petcoke"). Additionally, the company received initial vanadium nickel cobalt assay results. The samples were obtained from Alberta oil sands and refinery sales stockpile, which showed Vanadium 421 parts per million (“ppm), Cobalt 4.8 ppm and Nickel 76.8 ppm; and Vanadium 458 ppm, Cobalt 1.3 ppm and Nickel 53.4 ppm, respectively. Further analysis is underway of concentrate post-gasification ash samples with ash amounting to 3% of oil sands Petcoke by weight and less than 1% of the refinery Petcoke sample. Highbury is currently carrying out a phase 2 study which will include analyses of potential site locations, inclusion of pilot scale gasification, advanced metals extraction process design and initial plant design parameters.
