BENEFITS TO THE GOLD MINING SECTOR
The gold mining sector is currently dominated by cyanide as the leading gold extraction agent. It is an effective and low-cost reagent, but it is a toxic chemical that creates significant environmental risk for mine operators and local communities. It is increasingly opposed by many communities, NGO’s, governments, agencies and investors. EnviroLeach’s chemistry formulations recover gold from gravity and floatation concentrates with similar effectiveness and costs to cyanide.
EnviroLeach’s commercial strategy for the mining sector is based on a licensing and royalty model. EnviroLeach has little or no competition in the mining sector for economic, eco-friendly alternatives to cyanidation or smelting of gold concentrates. Our technical advantages and early mover status in this market positions us to become a dominant player. The EnviroLeach process offers the following benefits:
