Government And GGDMA Join Forces To Test Improved Recovery System For Increasing Efficiency And Productivity In The Mining Sector

The Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association (GGDMA) continues to explore technologies to increase mineral recovery while reducing mercury use for local small and medium scale miners. To this effect the GGDMA and the Ministry of Natural Resources have signed an agreement for the acquisition of mineral processing technology that can increase recovery and ultimately reduce the use of mercury. The “Riven Mineral Recovery System “will be pilot tested for the next 12 months in Guyana’s mining sector. This project is part of the GGDMA’s commitment to exploring and finding effective and feasible technology solutions to improve recovery and effectiveness which will ultimately lead to a reduction of the use of mercury in Small and Medium Scale (SMS) mining operations.
