Brossard, Quebec – TheNewswire – July 3rd, 2019 – Nippon Dragon Resources Inc. (“Nippon” or “NDR”) (TSX-V Symbol: NIP), is pleased to share information pertaining to Nippon’s exclusive and patented thermal fragmentation technology obtained from its South African distributor, MaXem, who recently attended an open-day presentation organised by the Mandela Mining Precinct in South Africa.

One of MaXem’s clients, Anglo Gold Ashanti presented the results of the work conducted with the thermal fragmentation technology at one of its underground operations in South Africa. Highlights of the presentation are as follows:

  • Over 200 holes were drilled and fragmented;

  • Several holes exceeded 30 metres in length

  • One of the objectives was to drill, fragment, clean and backfill a hole within a 25-hour period, objective achieved;

  • Over the 200 holes completed, productivity ranged from between 3 and 6 tonnes per hour;

Two other projects are currently under review by the Non-Explosive Rock Breaking Programme within the Mandela Mining Precinct, MaXem and other partners, one being the spallability classification of different rock types and the other, the employability of the thermal fragmentation technology within the platinum sector.

MaXem continues deploying its efforts to implement the thermal fragmentation technology throughout South Africa.
