MIRARCO receives grant from MICA network to support tailings bioleaching. MIRARCO's project will focus on one of three bioleaching processes to extract battery metals, Nickel and and Cobalt, from pyrrhotite tailings. The funding received will be used to support the recruitment of personnel, infrastructure developments, and piloting of the BacTech process using pyrrhotite tailings from Vale.
MIRARCO’s Natural Heat Exchange Engineering Technology (NHEET) project aims to leverage previous collaborative research between MIRARCO and Vale on the natural heat exchange system at Vale’s Creighton Mine to determine how the benefits of this system can be replicated at other mine sites.
