The Genesis System
The Genesis Gold Extraction System accelerates the rate of dissolution of gold to nearly an immediate rate, therefore reducing the standard time of extraction from an average of 40-120 days to a mere 24 hours while causing less damage to the environment than more commonly used methods…
–Reduced Water Requirements
The closed system eliminates the risk for spillages and considerably reduces the need for water, making Genesis particularly viable for arid sites
At the heart of the Genesis System is a module that makes the system versatile in its relationship with installation, construction, and repositioning
Lowering Environmental Impact While Raising Profitability
The Genesis Gold Extraction System
In November 2021, Star Alliance Mining International signed a Binding Letter of Intent to acquire a 51% stake in Starving Lion Advertising, SA, the Company that owns the Genesis Gold Extraction Process.
The Genesis system is a revolutionary process that extracts gold from oxidized ore in an environmentally safe and green manner. The system speeds are up to 400 times quicker than conventional leaching methods and the system extracts up to 98% of the gold from the Oxide ore in a 24 hour period.
At the heart of the Genesis System is a module that makes the system versatile in its relationship with installation, construction, and repositioning. In addition to numerous international collaborations, Genesis provides a practical and economical solution that is effective, feasible, and reliable; characteristics that this industry has always required.
UNDERSTANDING “HEAP LEECHING”
It is important to understand Heap Leaching to really recognize the incredible benefits of our genesis process.
Heap leaching is an industrial mining process used to extract precious metals, copper, uranium, and other compounds from ore using a series of chemical reactions that absorb specific minerals and re-separate them after their division from other earth materials.
Lixiviants are chemical solutions used in leach mining to enhance the dissolution of metals in ores. Sulphuric acid and cyanide salts are the most common demonstrated lixiviants used in heap or vat (tank) leaching processes applied under atmospheric conditions.
Heap Leaching is not good for the environment because the low pH of ISL mining wastewater can result in acidification of the surrounding environment. Release of toxic heap leaching fluids into the environment can affect the health of both the surrounding ecosystem and human population.
The primary differences between the two systems is speed and the fact that Our Genesis System is enronmentally safe.
In Heap Leeching, the mined ore is usually crushed into small chunks and heaped on an impermeable plastic or clay lined leach pad.
It is then irrigated with a leach solution to dissolve the valuable metals, irrigating the ore for an extended period of time (weeks, months, or years) with a chemical solution to dissolve the sought-after metals, and collecting the leachant (“pregnant solution”) as it percolates out from the base of the heap.
Heap leaching is the preferred method for miners worldwide, due to the fact that capital investment needs and, more importantly, the cost of production is considerably lower in comparison with other conventional methods of ore extraction such as “carbon in leach” (CIL). Heap leaching only works with oxidized minerals where gold is found molecularly free.
Heap leaching is performed in different configurations, each with certain advantages and disadvantages. Gold and silver are leached with a diluted alkaline solution of sodium cyanide. The recovery is dependent on the type of ore being processed. It is important to base the design of a heap leach on the results of a comprehensive program of laboratory testing. A heap leach can be operated in all climate types with proper design and water balance considerations. The mining, ore preparation. and stacking methods will vary. Where run-of-mine ore is to be leached, it may be blasted heavily as fine crushed ore that is high in clays may be mined with minimal stockpiles. The environmental requirements for reclamation and closure vary widely and should be considered during the design phase of the heap. In operations, there are some common problems that can often be prevented. Operating costs are less sensitive to the size of the operation than capital costs.
HOW THE GENESIS SYSTEM WORKS
The Genesis system accelerates the rate of dissolution of gold to nearly an immediate rate, therefore reducing the standard time of extraction from an average of 40-120 days to a mere 24 hours. Consequently, the costs of production are dramatically reduced, the process is also capable of processing in its modular size any amount of material and can be easily scaled.
Beyond the economic advantages, it also provides immediate technical solutions to difficulties caused by fine materials and resolves the need to agglomerate. The speed of extraction of gold is up to 400 times faster than a conventional heap leaching.
At the heart of the Genesis System is a module that makes the system versatile in its relationship with installation, construction, and repositioning. The system’s conception, design, and structural
development is the innovative solution executed by the inventor who has been engaged in the exploration and successful production of their own mines for over 25 years. In addition to numerous international collaborations, Genesis provides a practical and economical solution that is effective, feasible, and reliable; characteristics that this industry has always required.
A single 14-meter module is able to process between 300 and 350 tons per day at a relative density of 1.53. The area needed to operate a complete module is merely 2, 500 square meters which include the absorption plant, a convenient reduction as compared to Heap leaching.
- Lower capital investment needs in comparison to the standard processes available in the industry. (Approximately 1M USD for implementing the Genesis module for processing 300 t/d).
*Excluding machinery costs
