Sulfide Ore Processing

Processing Sulfide Ores


Historically, miners have shipped their sulfide concentrates to overseas smelters that have little to no regulations or emissions controls.  However, with the implementation of the Mercury Export Ban of 2008 and the high costs of installing equipment to prepare sulfide ores for cyanide leaching, many companies are searching for alternative forms of processing their sulfide ores.

sulfide-ore-2Instead of relying on autoclaves or roasting to prepare a sulfide ore for traditional leaching, our vibratory grinder on our circuit allows our leach to make contact with the precious metal encapsulated in the sulfide so leaching can occur. With the aggressive nature of our leach allowing us to process most ores in an hour, our process allows us to contain the amount of sulfur that is released into our solution and capture it in our filter presses instead of releasing hazardous gasses into the earth’s atmosphere.
