Trade your Gold for Mining Equipment

We have special arrangements with an affiliate US mining equipment manufacturer, and any portion of the proceeds from refining your gold can be used for direct purchase of quality built washplants and any other gold recovery and heavy equipment you may need for project development.

Technical Consulting

Many advances are made every year in technology and better methods of mining techniques, recovery, and concentration. A substantial part of the services we offer is reviewing present operations and providing recommendations that can optimize production efficiency, reduce losses, and increase profitability through more effective processes.  Other services include site visits, soil testing and analysis, complete designs and business plans, procurement sourcing and oversight and even initial or long term project management; all of which shall yield the maximum return for your investment.


Integral with improvement is proper training in the application, use, and maintenance of new systems and technology.  We can provide comprehensive training and instruction for members of your supervisory staff, to enable them to carry out their tasks effectively, and ensure your entire work force adapts well to the changes and upgrades.

Business and Community Development

Our advisory and management services extend well beyond the conventions of mining technologies.  Many are aware that social licenses are just as important as the formal mineral rights that are granted, and an array of valuable advantages are typically gained as a result of foreign entities supporting the local communities.  In short we can instill appropriate and cost effective benefit programs, and are truly a full service vendor to concerned mining companies and their areas of operative influence.
