Over the span of 30 years, our dedicated team of geologists and metallurgists diligently researched a remarkable 3,121 million tons of slag piles.
Copper ore is considered economically viable when its copper content exceeds 30%, yet such high concentrations are seldom found in mines. In the southwestern USA region and Peru, copper ore with 2-5% copper content is abundant but not cost-effective to mine due to the expenses associated with chemical concentration processes.
Our groundbreaking dry concentration process, employing electrostatics, offers a game-changing solution by efficiently concentrating copper ore to over 30% without the need for water or chemicals. This environmentally friendly method revolutionizes the extraction of copper, making it a sustainable and economically viable option for mining operations.
Our extensive research has encompassed 1,432 million tons of tailings, and our strategic plan involves the recycling of these materials to efficiently recover high concentrations of precious metals. Recovering valuable metals from tailing stockpiles in abandoned mines can present complexities. Nonetheless, our innovative dry concentration process allows for specific steps to be taken, ensuring successful metal recovery.
Galena - Lead Ores
The deposit boasts abundant resources of lead, silver, and gold beds, prominently situated on the surface and within a network of veins showcasing robust mineralization potential. Based on prior assessments, it is estimated that around 300,000 metric tons of recoverable Mineral Resources lie within the expansive 600-hectare area.
Head Ore Stock Piles
Our comprehensive research has encompassed billions of tons of head ore stockpile from 18th-century abandoned mines in the Southwestern U.S. The recovery of valuable metals from such historical mine tailings poses its challenges, but we have identified several effective methods for extraction. Here are the essential steps that facilitate the recovery of precious metals from these head stockpiles.
A placer mine is a distinctive form of mining operation involving the extraction of minerals, such as gold, from sedimentary deposits or alluvial deposits that have been carried and deposited by water. The term "placer" originates from the Spanish word "placer," signifying "sandbank" or "gravel deposit.
The Gold Belt spans across the eastern United States, extending from Virginia to Alabama. It played a pivotal role during the early American gold rush and housed some of the nation's largest and most productive gold mines.
