The Tau-Ken Altyn Refining Plant to Launch a New Workshop for Processing Industrial Waste
The Tau-Ken Altyn refining plant learned how to extract gold from their own production waste. The new workshop will be able to process up to 15 tons of solid industrial waste annually, including slags and heat treatment waste.
he products of the workshop are concentrates with a high content of gold and silver. The unique technological model required technical completion, at the same time, it was possible to maximize the use of equipment and reagents available at the enterprise.
Arnur Aidarkhanov, the Technical Director of Tau-Ken Altyn LLP:
“The main difficulty associated with the commissioning of the processing shop was the heterogeneity of waste, the difference in their physical and chemical features. In the course of R&D, we needed to study the issue comprehensively, while achieving maximum extraction of precious metals”.
The new workshop will process waste from current production, as well as those that have been stored since previous years. In the future, it is possible to provide services for the complex processing of man-made waste to other enterprises.
