This 5% ore is treated with cyanide in Gekko's proprietary highperformance InLine Leach Reactor (ILR) for superior gold recovery. The ILR reduces the consumption and environmental impact of whole ore cyanidation. The gold is then recovered using the GRex column and the goldbearing solution sent to electrowinning for final extraction.
