Within our concessions have abundant tailings (2% Hg and 10 oz Ag/TM), waste from the extraction of mercury from cinnabar, they have potential silver content. What would be the ideal method to benefit them?

We have experience in the removal/recovery of mercury on site at a fairly large scale. Once the mercury is removed the silver could be recovered via traditional methods. We have some discussion on our mercury process technologies at

The raw materials are sandstones with contents of cinnabar, which are the result of the processes of recovery of Hg retorts used by the Spaniards for the 1700. Silver is found as native. So the idea is to recover both elements.
