Clean Urban Mining

We provide a variety of solutions for e-waste management and recycling. Our extraction methods remove and recover valuable materials such as gold and copper from e-waste.

Clean Mining

Developed for more than a decade by Australia’s national science agency, our solution replaces toxic cyanide and mercury with a non-toxic gold recovery agent, benefiting both human health and the health of the environment

Oil & Gas

This solution is still in development.

Certain variations of our polysulfide are being evaluated in oil and gas spill cleanup. They are porous and hydrophobic, and therefore promising tools in oil spill remediation. Our material has many potential advantages, including faster uptake, lower costs, scalability, and reusability.

Safer and less Hazardous

How it works

Our Solution

Our main factors

Clean Mining uses a non-toxic, non-flammable and water-soluble solution that removes cyanide as the primary means of leaching gold in medium to large-scale mining operations. The gold recovery reagent’s success rate in leaching gold from certain ores—e.g. carbonaceous—is 50% more compared to cyanide.

Clean gold processing

Ore collected from gold mines → Gold dissolved using non-toxic reagent → Gold is recovered from the ore using polymer →

1. Ore is cleaned and recovered from extraction → Cleaned ore is buried back into the earth

2. Extracted gold is further refined for smelting → Molten gold is poured into moulds producing bars of bullion
Any leftover reagent is recycled and reused

A better and more sustainable future for all

The UN’s National Sustainable Development
Goals for 2030

What are the goals?

Our technology solution helps the resources and energy sector to back several key goals in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs, otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

These 17 goals are interconnected and include areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace, and justice, among other priorities.

The ethical decision

Stamped with our approval

Clean Gold Certified™

When you buy gold, it’s more than a thoughtful gift or investment, it’s an ethical decision you make.
Clean Mining has established a Clean Gold trademark – a ‘leaf’ logo that appears on all gold produced via Clean Mining technology. The Clean Gold Certification guarantees that the gold is cyanide and mercury-free, making it the easy, ethical choice. Learn how Clean Gold™ stands above other gold options.
