Newera Resources (ASX: NRU) has received results of coal washability tests from bulk samples conducted on its Shanagan East Project in Mongolia.

Detailed washability tests under a coal quality and test work plan supervised by Sedgman Limited (ASX:SDM) demonstrated the coal to be washable through a standard and common coal handling and processing plant

Coal quality analysis confirms previous results indicating a semi-anthracite, low-volatile, low moisture bituminous coal, with high calorific and ash values.

Shanagan coal could be mined to produce a lower energy product without washing, and if used for power generation would be considered a ‘clean coal’, with minimal flue gas and hence pollutants generated.

High ash deformation temperatures of over 1400°C allow high temperature boiler operations, delivering greater efficiency and lower capital cost in future power plant construction.

Sulphur and nitrogen levels were normal, whilst a high hardgrove grindability index of over 100 lowers power station pulverising requirements.

The range of potential uses for both as-mined and washed coal allows flexibility in resource development, as the products will be suitable for multiple potential customers.
