A veteran of the Chemours mining chemical business acquired last year by Czech Republic’s Draslovka for US$521 million is excited about the potential near-term impact of Australian glycine leaching technology on global copper, cobalt and nickel production. “It’s really a game changer in those spaces,” he told InvestMETS.
“There are no innovative new leaching technologies out there that are environmentally friendly and cost effective,” said Jimmy Stockbridge, Draslovka’s global business director for its expanding mining solutions business.
“The options tend to be not one, or both. The thing about the glycine is it meets both criteria.”
