Golden Predator Mining Corp.

Testing at Golden Predator's 3 Aces project in the Yukon has demonstrated that the proprietary EnviroLeach technology can extract more than 90% of the gold from sulfide concentrates.

Golden Predator Mining Corp. has been testing EnviroLeach Technologies Inc.'s non-cyanide and environmentally friendly way to recover gold from concentrates produced from gravity separation at its 3 Aces project in eastern Yukon.

The EnviroLeach process, which uses five ingredients that are FDA approved for human consumption to dissolve and a diamond-based electrochemical process to ultimately recover gold and other metals, has recovered 93.2% of the gold in a two-metric-ton sulfide concentrate sample from 3 Aces.

Following the successful EnviroLeach tests at 3 Aces, Golden Predator, EnviroLeach Technologies and enCore Energy Corp. entered into an agreement to form Group 11 Technologies Inc., to test additional applications for the EnviroLeach process, including the potential for in-situ extraction of gold and other metals.

Further detail on Group 11 Technologies can be read at Drilling gold wells with EnviroLeach tech – in the March 3 edition of Metal Tech News.
