- Tri-Star Resources said the purity of antimony and gold being produced at a processing facility in Oman had risen to 99.54% and 5%, respectively.

The project is owned by Strategic & Precious Metals Processing, which Tri-Star has a 40% interest.

Chief executive Adrian Collins said reaching the purity levels was a major step in the project's development.

'Notably, at this concentration level, which is edging closer to our near-term target 99.65%, antimony can be sold into the acid battery market,' he said.

'Additionally, SPMP is now producing saleable quantities of gold dore, the purity of which also continues to improve.'
