Mining Products and Solutions

Current mining processes are incapable of completely removing all desired minerals from ore deposits. 

Most mines create artificial ponds and waste stacks to store leftover solid waste after minerals are extracted. These ponds and waste stacks contain billions of dollars of valuable minerals, but at levels too low to be removed with existing mining technology.

Periodic Products’ Chelok Polymer Technology now allows these valuable metals to be recovered. Our Chelok® metal-binding polymers can be used to both increase yields of existing extraction processes and recover low-concentration minerals from tailing ponds and waste storage.
