Pilot testing the recovery of gold from mine tailings using a novel clean technology

AJ Min Inc. is developing a novel technology to recover gold from tailings material. The technology requires little energy, little to no reagents, and little to no additional water. Past testwork has indicated that this technology can recover significant amounts of gold from some tailings material, and that the recovered gold can be upgraded. This project will build on previous testwork to assemble and test a pilot unit to evaluate if the recovered gold can be upgraded sufficiently to be commercially viable. In addition, empirical models will be developed from the testwork to describe the performance and capabilities of the technology.
