Traditional or small-scale mining and mining by large multinational corporations on a large scale has used methods such as amalgamation. In this one, the main input is the mercury, that today is part of the illegal mining.
The processes of flotation, cyanidation and activated carbon allow to reach LESS THAN 90%, deteriorate the grade gold and take a long time..
With the implementation of Nanolixiviation, a method of self-sustaining Gold Extraction, developed by Nanotecol, mining could become a highly profitable, clean, sustainable, environmentally friendly and nationally and internationally prestigious mining.
Nanotecol has been able to develop, through nanotechnology and biotechnology, a mining extraction process that reduces costs, increases production efficiency and improves the quality of gold, all without generating pollutants to the environment.
