Positioned for growth via its partnerships with advanced mining and electronic waste (E-waste) opportunities and utilizing its proprietary and patent pending extraction technologies Mineworx Technologies Ltd., Burnaby BC, plans on doubling the size of its current fabrication facility in Coquitlam, BC to almost 14,000 sq. ft.
Based on positive results with its joint venture partner EnviroLeach Technologies Ltd., Mineworx has also leased an additional 13,674 sq. ft. facility in Vancouver (Surrey). The firm has also begun the commencement of a 20 tonne per day E-Waste concentration plant to be assembled at its new Surrey facility.
“These combined facilities will quadruple the capacity of the company’s E-Waste fabrication and production capabilities to almost 28,000 square feet,” says Greg Pendura, CEO. “This expansion now enables Mineworx to move quickly upon the site acceptance of the Memphis, Tennessee E-Waste processing plant to immediately expedite our business model in this dynamic sector.”
To facilitate with the expansion and transition into a fully operational organization, Mineworx has hired Sarah Heath as the manager of human resources, health and safety. Heath brings multiple years of experience in these functions and will assist with the progression of the Mineworx/EnviroLeach JV as it moves into commercial production.
