In-Situ Leaching (ISL), sorption and extraction cycles, thermal, as well as gas-chemical processes (sulfation, fluorination, chlorination, iodination, and sulfonation), catalytic processes, hydrolytic and electrochemical methods, etc.
The Emmet Harvest (“EH”) team has painstakingly developed, through its cumulative 85 years of experience in the commercialization of technology, practical, field-proven applied technologies, techniques and devices for the expert extraction and cost-efficient production of various metals and their compounds required today by mine owners and their customers. This very team enabled a country like Kazakhstan to become the world’s largest producer of uranium and a fraction of other producers’ costs. Our worldwide team is eager to enable our proven capabilities to be used in the production of materials—with the highest quality at the most economical cost.
In Kazakhstan, for example, there were various projects carried out with our direct participation to enable the extraction and production of products from tungsten, molybdenum, rhenium, gold, lithium, tin, nickel, cobalt, copper, lead, bismuth, manganese, magnesium, silicon, REE, scandium, zirconium, hafnium, titanium, aluminum, beryllium, tantalum, niobium, fluoride and fluorides, chlorine and chlorides, phosphorus and phosphates, and industrial diamonds. It should be noted that we had to rely on predominately poor refractory ores and industrial wastes as raw materials, for which various new disruptive technologies had to be developed.
The arsenal of our applied technologies include, but are not limited to, such advanced processes as an In-Situ Leaching (ISL), sorption and extraction cycles, thermal, as well as gas-chemical processes (sulfation, fluorination, chlorination, iodination, and sulfonation), catalytic processes, hydrolytic and electrochemical methods, etc. Thus, a truly new scientific and technological platform had to be created and maintained in order to allow the transition in the mining industry from mechanical processes that are expensive and dangerous to humans, as well as environment, to ones safe and efficient, based on safer hydro-chemical and chemical processes.
Our technological platform has dramatically illustrated its effectiveness in the uranium industry of Kazakhstan—becoming a bench mark through the world. During the last 10-12 years, the share of Kazakhstan in the global production of natural uranium increased from 1% to 42%! Presently, all of the Kazakh uranium today is mined in an economical and environmentally friendly way through our proprietary ISL, with Kazakhstan’s share in the world uranium mining, utilizing this method, equals about 80%. Our method also, among all known, has the best prospects for use in a gradual transformation into completely unmanned and robotic mining processes—saving time and money.
Our team is ready to facilitate the implementation of such scenarios in the United States and elsewhere, if desired, for the rapid mining and production of uranium or any other metals crucial for a given country and/or region. From our past experience in Kazakhstan over the last 20 years, this kind of scenario will require the involvement and coordinated work groups of highly qualified specialists and scientists in all cycles and stages of production – from geology and geophysics, hydrology and hydrogeology, drilling and well-construction, chemical technologies and production, to metallurgical stages, manufacturing and supply of equipment and machinery, closed water and chemical cycles, construction of mines and factories, environmental protection, digital solutions and informational technologies, marketing, logistics, applied research and development, conceptual and detailed design, training and re-training of specialists, project management and rationing of resources—all ensuring success for our clients.
As a result of our years of proven success, we are poised to assist in the long-term security of the United States and elsewhere, by bringing our vast amount of trade-secrets and practical know-how to bear that will enable the efficient and cost-effective production of a plethora of metals and their compounds.
