Precious metals

Some slag dumps, such as those generated by the nickel smelters and lead smelters, still contain trace quantities of precious metals; these being gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Whenever, it would pay to do so, AMRT’s melt reduction process, as described for recovering the appropriate base metal above, can be, and has been, adjusted slightly so as to amplify the recovery of any or all of the said precious metals and divert them into an appropriate refinery route.

Examples of materials that have been produced by or processed in AMRT’s melt reduction furnaces are:

Copper

Cobalt

Nickel

Tin

Zinc and lead oxide and sulphides

Ferrochromium

Ferromanganese

Ferrotitanium

Precious metal-bearing wastes
