This technology is common in many countries around the world and is one of the widespread methods for ore beneficiation. It is characterized by efficiency and minimal negative impact on the environment.
The production cycle of RMG Gold with the heap leaching method complies with the international standards of mining activities. Increased production efficiency is ensured by highly qualified personnel, modern technologies, labor safety and environmental monitoring, the latest equipment and proper infrastructure.
Company’s Madneuli deposit belongs to the list of complex deposits in the world. Ore bodies here are presented in heterogeneous and various mineralogical forms that complicate the process of ore extraction.
Due to this, Madneuli mine has become the subject of numerous international studies and scientific papers. Considering these factors and in order to improve the efficiency of the company, the existing copper enrichment plant and mining technical base are being upgraded and re-equipped, which is the basis for sustainable business development in the long run.
RMG Auramine Bektakari deposit, is a modern underground mining project implemented with modern technologies and methods for extraction of gold-polymetallic ores, currently processed at RMG Copper’s pilot plant.
