Energizer Resources Announces Interim Metallurgy Recovery of 82% on Green Giant Vanadium Project, Madagascar

Energizer Resources Inc. (formerly Uranium Star Corp.) (TSX.V: EGZ) (OTCBB:ENZR) (FRANKFURT:YE5) (“Energizer” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce interim metallurgy and remaining final assay results from its 2010 drill program and provide a metallurgy update for its Green Giant Vanadium Project in Madagascar.

Metallurgical Test Program Achieves 82% Vanadium Extraction

The Company is pleased to announce that the ongoing metallurgical flow sheet development program has progressed well, with scoping test work nearing completion at three metallurgical laboratories (in Canada and Johannesburg). Of note, alkaline pressure leach testing at SGS Lakefield has determined that soda ash can be used to extract 82% vanadium into a leach solution low in contaminants. Ongoing work is aimed at optimizing reagent consumption and leach temperature and is expected to be completed in October 2010.

Julie Lee Harrs, President and COO, said, “We are very excited by these developments in metallurgical performance and are looking forward to reporting the remaining results shortly."

Highlights of the Remaining Assay Results

  • 0.875% V2O5 over 60 metres, including 0.939 % V2O5 over 21 metres (Hole M91a)
  • 0.846% V2O5 over 72.1 metres, including 0.912 % V2O5 over 42 metres (Hole M-89)
  • 0.688% V2O5 over 22.5 metres, including 0.823 % V2O5 over 7.5 metres; and 0.64% V2O5 over 43.5 metres, including 0.731 % V2O5 over 24 metres (Hole M-88)
  • 0.58% V2O5 over 97.5 metres, including 0.714 % V2O5 over 39 metres (Hole K-07)
  • 0.588% V2O5 over 58.5 metres, including 0.61% V2O5 over 40.5 metres (Hole K-05) 

A complete summary table of all of the assay results from the 2010 drill program follows at the end of this press release. With these assay results, the Company has now received all results for the 46 diamond drill holes (totalling 8,952 metres) completed during the 2010 drill program.

Updated NI 43-101 Resource Estimate Expected October 2010

Based on these results, the Company is confident that it has exceeded its exploration target to delineate additional mineral resources in the range of 25 to 30 million tonnes of V2O5, which will increase its previously reported indicated resource estimate of 21.74 million tonnes of V2O5 at a grade of 0.759% and inferred resource estimate of 4.15 million tonnes of V2O5 at a grade of 0.655%. An updated National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate is expected in October 2010.
