Welcome To The BacTech Mining HUB On AGORACOM
Responsible Mining through Green Technology
Put simply, some metals are easy to separate from rock and some aren't. BacTech uses naturally occurring bacteria (bioleaching) to help separate metal from the tougher rock. Our technology provides a suitable environment for the bacteria within the plant, creating a 'garden of eden' for them to live in. The separation technology achieves in 6 days what would normally take 20 years to occur in nature. That's 500,000 times faster. And they work all day and demand very little. Now that's a work force! Best of all, the tailings created are benign and no environmental damage occurs.
We are one of 2 companies worldwide who have commercally proven, bioleaching technology. BacTech has just signed a major deal with Yamana Gold, involving the purchase of two of their refractory gold deposits. Our team is continually searching for viable deposits that would benefit from our technology.
