【Itronics starts up centrifuge】

Reno, Nevada-based Itronics Inc., a producer of Gold’n Gro zinc fertilizers and silver products,

has reported that it has successfully completed startup testing of the centrifuge that will be used in its hydrometallurgical operations to perform liquid solids separations.

“This technology is a revolutionary breakthrough in the development of the company’s hydromet processes and is expected to significantly lower operating costs,

which is very important,” John Whitney, Itronics president, says.

“The centrifuge technology will be used for the FeLix (iron), SuLix (sulfur) and ZinLix (zinc) leaching processes and will be tested for use in KAM-Thio silver/gold mine applications.”
