LDM has developed an ore concentration technology that does not use water or chemicals.
Heap Leach or CIL or Maybe Both Typically gold mines consist of either a heap leach (HL) operation or a CIL type plant. There are a few projects that operate (or are considering) concurrent heap leach and CIL operations. Ultimately the mineral resource distribution determines if it makes economic sense to have both. This blog discusses this concept based on past experience. A CIL operation has higher capital and operating costs than a heap leach. However that higher cost is offset by achievin
It’s common to see mining conferences present their moderated panels discussing “disruption” and Mining 2.0. The mining industry is always looking for new technologies to improve the way it operates. Disruptive technologies however require making big changes, not tweaks. True disruption is more than just automating haulage equipment or having new ways to visualize ore bodies in 3D. Insitu leaching is a game changing technology that will eventually make a big difference. Read a previous blo

by Karen Chovan [https://www.linkedin.com/in/envirointegration], CEO & Founder of Enviro Integration Strategies Inc. The failures and severe consequences of Mount Polley, Samarco, and then Brumadinho, shook our industry, and awoke a much stronger interest in our waste management practices from investors, insurers and society alike. In my opinion, the best “kick in the pants” we needed. In an industry so focused and proud of its safety practices and performance, an industry preaching the Plan D
Our company, LDM LLC, was founded by inventors interested in the creation of a better planet for all of us. Two of our founders and our mining consultant have been involved with the mining industry for more than twenty years.
Over the past few decades, we have seen some major advancements that present enormous potential for uncharted performance Mineral processing can be very siloed with the flow of information which feeds every process, procedure and system for continuity.
