RESTORING YESTERDAY'S PROJECTS WITH TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY
Welcome to Heritage Minerals
Heritage Minerals is a mining company that specialises in processing gold tailings
at abandoned mines. It uses proprietary technology to recover metals and clean up contaminated areas economically.
Mt. Morgan is located in Queensland, Australia and was the largest gold mine in the world at its peak in the early 1900s. Over its lifespan, the mine yielded approximately 262 metric tons of gold, 37 metric tons of silver and 387,000 metric tons of copper.
As with many older mining projects, the legacy of Mt. Morgan is a large hole in the ground, waste and tailings stockpiles that produce contaminated water and a town with high unemployment. Today, Mt. Morgan is a tourist attraction demonstrating the scale of environmental damage unwittingly caused by the old mining companies. This sole benefit must be weighed against the high ongoing cost to the government in treating the contaminated water discharging to the Dee River.
CHANGING A LIABILITY TO AN OPPORTUNITY
Heritage Minerals has a unique approach to solving the economic barriers to treating low-grade tailings. A combination of the worlds best technology and many years of operational experience can turn around projects that are otherwise not feasible.
Heritage Minerals designs and implements innovative solutions for technically tricky projects. They are also a environmentally and socially responsible problem solver.
