  Glycine Leaching Technology

Draslovka's proprietary Glycine Leaching Technology is the most environmentally sustainable and cost-effective way to produce precious metals and critical minerals yet. It utilizes Glycine, a non-toxic amino acid often used as a food additive or nutritional supplement in humans and animals.

What is Glycine?

Glycine is a common amino acid, a non-toxic chemical that is fully bio-degradable. It is used as a food additive for both humans and animals and has sugar-like appearance. Due to its widespread use across many applications, it is readily available worldwide.

Glycine is unique in its ability to selectively leach certain base and precious metals. It is not chemically consumed so it is recoverable and recyclable – providing a major cost advantage. 


What is Glycine?
Copper

Copper

GlyLeachTM significantly improves the economics of copper oxide production by replacing acid with a non-toxic, food-grade reagent, unlocking significant new production from previously unviable deposits.

    Economically process uneconomic high acid consuming copper oxides, including unviable carbonate hosted oxides

•    Reduce or eliminate sulfuric acid consumption

    Concurrent leaching of precious and other metals (e.g. cobalt)

    Recyclable reagent

    Supported by AI optimization tool

    Proprietary and patented technology


Nickel and Cobalt

GlyLeachTM for Nickel and Cobalt enables production from tailings, as well as lower cost, environmentally friendly production of higher purity metal from nickel and cobalt sulphide deposits

   Utilizes glycine, a non-toxic, fully bio-degradable and recyclable reagent

•    Highly selective leaching chemistry

    High-grade product

    No smelting required

    Recyclable reagent

    Lower carbon emissions

    Proprietary and patented technology



 


Nickel and Cobalt
Gold

Gold

GlyCatTM  enables an average 25% reduction in processing cost and ESG benefits by replacing a majority of cyanide with a non-toxic, food-grade reagent

    Utilizes glycine, a non-toxic food additive that is fully bio-degradable and recyclable.

•    Reduces cyanide consumption by certain ore types by 20-80%.

    Reduces or eliminates cyanide detoxification requirements

    Easily adapted to existing leaching circuits, essentially a drop-in additive.

    Supported by AI optimization tool

    Proprietary and patented technology
