MetaLeach Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of AIM and TSX-V quoted Alexander Mining plc.  MetaLeach was formed  to enable the commercialisation of its proprietary hydrometallurgical mineral processing technologies. These technologies have the potential to revolutionise the extraction processes for many base metals deposits by reducing costs, and hence enhancing operating margins, at the mine site.  In addition, many deposits that hitherto have not had viable processing options may be treatable.

MetaLeach owns the intellectual property to hydrometallurgical technologies, of which AmmLeach® (patents pending) is the most important.  AmmLeach®is an environmentally friendly, cost effective processes for the extraction of base metals from amenable ore deposits  allowing the production of high value products at the mine site (i.e. metal powder or sheets). These technologies were created as a result of the Company’s work at its former copper project in Argentina and subsequent research and development.

The following metals are targets for the AmmLeach® process:

  • Copper and Copper/Cobalt oxide deposits;
  • Zinc oxides deposits (work underway);
  • Nickel laterite (saprolite) deposits;
  • Gold/Copper oxides and Silver/Zinc oxides (alkali leaching);
  • Molybdenum oxides – testing underway
  • A significant number of confidentiality and testwork agreements have been signed with multinational mining groups, as well as intermediate and junior companies.
