THE SOLUTION TO TRANSFORMING NATURAL RESOURCES
Argo has found a way to grasp and integrate the challenges that the mining, remediation and e-waste sectors face by testing and building our evolving technology
This is an opportunity to go on a transformational journey, bolster collaboration, partnership and meaningful dialogues with Governments, civil society, communities and investors.
Human societies flourished as we made use of natural resources for energy, metals, and minerals. Along the way, societies and investors realised that once-acceptable human and environmental consequences were no longer acceptable.
SOCIETY HAS EVOLVED
IT’S TIME TO RETHINK THE PROCESSES IN OUR INDUSTRY
There is progress, in the form of a discovery by the University of Leicester.
A special set of nontoxic ionic liquids, called deep eutectic solvents, have a track record of replacing water and toxic chemicals in a wide range of industries – from pharmaceuticals to paints to turbine blades.
These liquids have been demonstrated for the recovery of metals in many types of minerals.
MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE
We have found a way to dissolve platinum group metals without roasting ores and releasing sulfuric acid and arsenic.
We can dissolve gold without the use of cyanide and water. Imagine the possibility – and the value – of cyanide-free gold.
Countries that have valuable metals resources will welcome nontoxic recovery and less intrusive mine and waste dam design.
20 years of work and thousands of experiments are the scientific foundation for rethinking industry processes.
Through the power of collaboration we are initiating change.
