Gekko Systems (Gekko) is pleased to announce that, it has executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Clean Earth Technologies (CET).
Gekko is a world technical leader in processing and low-energy mining solutions. Founded in Australia in 1996, Gekko has offices in Johannesburg, Vancouver, Ballarat and Perth to service mining companies globally. Gekko has expertise in the design, engineering, selection, development, manufacturing, assembly and deployment of modular mineral processing equipment for the processing of mineral ores in gravity separation, leaching and comminution in mining operations.
CET was founded in Singapore in 2019, and has developed a Clean Mining solution which focuses on eliminating the use of cyanide, mercury and other toxic practices in the gold recovery process.This solution naturally complements Gekko’s innovative solutions and strategy.
The MOU will see both parties enter into a working relationship in the interests of identifying and pursuing appropriate project opportunities that can combine CET’s safer, more environmentally responsible technologies and reagents seeking to make gold processing that is cyanide and acid-free utilizing Gekko’s Inline Leach Reactor (ILR) and associated modular mineral processing equipment.
Gekko’s CEO, Andrew Edmondston is excited to collaborate with CET, “I am looking forward to collaborating with Clean Earth Technologies. Their new reagents in combination with Gekko’s world leading intensive leaching technologies (ILR) allows for mineral processing to become more environmentally friendly, while still achieving high recovery.”
CET’s Founder and CEO Kevin Fell echoes the same sentiments, saying, “We are very excited to sign this MOU with Gekko. As a world leader in innovative mining solutions, Gekko’s mission to transform the mining industry and the environment aligns with our passion to come up with innovative technology that supports a clean, circular economy. As a young company, Gekko’s willingness to partner with us to seek out new opportunities validates the work we have done in the past three years.”
