MASSACHUSETTS – HABER INC. has successfully completed its pilot tests of the Aladdin technology. The company has been testing a prototype machine on ores and e-scrap at its plant.

The Aladdin machine, designed to use Haber’s unique, non-toxic extraction and recovery processes with maximum efficiency, was tested on increasingly larger batch runs of precious metal ores of up to 90 kg per run. Over the range of test runs, processing time averaged 3.5 hours and test results indicated extraction and recovery efficiencies in excess of 98%. In addition, e-scrap tests have been successfully completed, yielding 99% gold extraction efficiencies with run times of approximately 4.5 hours.

In addition to previous shipments from Bolivian, Ghanaian and Suriname sources, Haber will now be receiving high-grade ore from the southwest United States. Processing this material will help the company generate revenues from the process. Initial testing of this new ore supply has yielded precious metals assays in the multiple ounces per ton range. The next steps are to run a number of tonnes of this ore through the Aladdin machine and thereby determine the processing economics and revenue potential of ore. If testing proves successful, multiple-tonne loads will then be received weekly. The arrangement with the supplier is to share equally in profits generated by the recovered precious metals. The initial shipment is expected in late March.
