6th Wave Innovations Launches IXOS, a Game-Changing, Gold-Attracting Nanotechnology for the Mining Industry

6th Wave Innovations Corp. has announced the launch of its game-changing IXOS™ nanotechnology bead for the gold mining industry. The company estimates that its molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) ion exchange resin can increase gold mining profits by about $100 per ounce in processing savings and extra gold recovered in direct comparison to activated carbon, the most widely used extraction medium today. Widespread adoption of IXOS could potentially add billions of dollars in profits to an industry that produces about 90M ounces of gold each year. Each patent-pending IXOS bead is imprinted at the molecular level to attract gold and ignore the other elements leached off in mining operations. Unlike conventional ion exchange resins, the IXOS resin has a long life (>50 loading/unloading cycles), and high capacity (~30g/kg) and selectivity for gold (>95%). Moreover, the capacity and selectivity does not degrade with successive cycles. The unloading (“elution”) process is simple, straightforward and inexpensive when compared to activated carbon. The beads require no activation step for re-use. The resin is supplied ready-to-use, with a range of particle sizes available to accommodate heap leach and resin-in-leach/pulp circuits. IXOS has consistently and thoroughly outperformed activated carbon and conventional ion-exchange resins in laboratory and field trials conducted over the past three years. These trials were done in partnership with some of the gold mining companies under a wide variety of conditions, including high grade, low grade, and refractory (“preg-robbing”) ores. In the trials, IXOS also demonstrated a variety of advantages to activated carbon, including capacity, selectivity, elution time and temperature, adsorption efficiency, durability, and re-use. These advantages directly translate to lower costs and more gold recovered. Use of IXOS also requires fewer chemicals, reduces waste, has no toxic emissions, and uses less power — making it a “greener” technology.
