About i-minerals inc.
i-minerals holds ten minerals leases in northwestern Idaho that hosts Kelly's Basin feldspar-quartz deposit that is the subject of an ongoing feasibility study. High pure quartz (>99.95% SiO2) can be produced through a standard flotation process. Preliminary exploration work on occurrences of primary clay deposits has identified variable concentrations of kaolinite, halloysite, quartz and feldspar. The Company commissioned SRK to complete an initial assessment of the primary clay deposits that comprise the Bovill Kaolin Deposits through a Preliminary Economic Assessment (the "PEA") which is based upon limited, widely spaced drilling over large areas. While additional assessment work is required to fully assess the economic viability of the Bovill Kaolin Deposits, the PEA demonstrated robust economic metrics and indicated the Bovill Kaolin Deposits may represent the largest deposit of halloysite in North America. Halloysite is a unique tubular shaped aluminosilicate mineral, often referred to as a halloysite nanotube (HNT), which is being increasingly used in nanotechnology applications.
