GOLD WITHOUT CYANIDE
An innovative process
CleanMining is an Australian company that aims to transform gold mining around the world through the use of more environmentally responsible technologies. CleanMining has launched a gold processing technology without toxic elements that replaces the use of cyanide and mercury with a benign, reusable, non-toxic, non-flammable and water soluble inorganic compound.
ENNSIGHT accompanies the development from the business plan, advice on mining operations and modular processing to the sale of the ingot with a clean traceable non-toxic seal patented by CleanMining.
The technology was developed by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) over a 10-year period.
Non-toxic solution, which completely replaces the use of cyanide or mercury.
Applicable to a wide range of ores already tested with results comparable to cyanide extraction.
The ideal solution to completely eliminate hazardous and contaminated waste.
The only genuine solution to replace mercury in artisanal and small-scale gold mining.
Example of the process applied in small-scale mining
CleanGold™ is a new global accreditation program for Gold produced with the highest standards of social, environmental and economic sustainability.
Certification is only awarded for Gold produced with CleanMining's innovative extraction technology.
Miners, jewelers, manufacturers and other consumers who have CleanGold™ certification can sell the premium product in the market obtaining greater prestige and a price differential for its origin.
CleanGold™ has, in the short to medium term, the potential to generate higher prices from responsible and informed consumers who seek jewelry and products with a social license, sustainability credentials and traceability on the origin of Gold.
