A lawyer representing a gold mining company in Central America with strong opposicion from ecological and media groups contacted Expert to give a clear explanation of the project, inform of alternatives to cyanide, analysis of proposed flow sheet, similar projects around the world.A small precious metals refinery in Spain asked Expert to develop a new flow sheet for recovery and refining gold, silver, platinum and palladium. A new acid leaching method was developed less agressive, based on ion-exchange recovery.
