The precious metal refining industry uses well established processes for extracting almost all of the PGMs present in mining ores. However, even these processes leave residual concentrations of PGMs in their end-of-line barrens streams.
PhosphonicS works hand-in-hand with mining refining operations to selectively recover low concentrations of precious metals from the end-of-line barrens streams at the precious metal refinery. The effective recovery precious metals present in waste streams improves the returns from manufacturing at the same time as reducing the environmental impact.
From laboratory testing to uncover the best silica product to the detailed engineering design and development of a permanent installation, a cost-effective solution is achieved.
