Cyanidation is energy-intensive way to process gold, and produces a large amount of highly-contaminated tailings. Dundee’s technology uses an innovative approach, chlorination, to extract precious metals. Besides the benefits to the environment, the process will allow the exploitation of gold deposits that are not extractable using conventional methods. The primary benefits are shorter processing time, reduced emissions from avoided energy consumption for convention refining, increased mine productivity by reclaiming process waste and remediating waste ore – all of which increases the life expectancy of the mining operation.
