Precision Periodic Announces the Successful Extraction of 80% Total Rare Earths in a Five Minute, Single Pass from Phosphate Mine Waste


Summary: Precision Periodic announces the successful results of rare earth extraction projects for Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute. Using their proprietary reusable Thor REE Nano-filter they captured 80% of the total rare earths in a five minute single pass-through including the radioactive elements. The filter can be reused for thousands of cycles and is highly scalable for all size applications.


Orlando, Florida July 29, 2019 -- Precision Periodic announces the successful results of projects for Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute capturing, extracting and separating Rare Earth Elements (REE) out of both phosphoric acid and the resulting waste using the reusable Thor nano-filtration system. The filter captured 40-60% of the rare earth elements and radioactive elements in a five minute single pass-through from wet process phosphoric acid and 80% of the rare earth elements in a five minute single pass-through from sulfuric acid leached waste.


“The successful test projects proved that the Thor nano-filtration technology could be a game-changer for US production of its own rare earth elements supply,” says Brian J Andrew, CEO of Precision Periodic. He continues, “The phosphoric acid contains 150 ppm of total rare earths. Based on our extraction capabilities, we could extract 75 grams of total rare earths out of every 1,000 liters of phosphoric acid from a phosphate mine. This equates to one Florida phosphate mine being able to produce 230 metric tons of total rare earths per year which would supply an estimated 25% of the annual US Military needs.”


Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute provided two different source liquids for the test projects. The first was the wet process phosphoric acid which contained radioactive elements and the second being a sulfuric acid leach liquid of the sludge waste. The Thor nano-filtration system captured 45-55% of the radioactive elements which exceeded the goal to establish the waste as viable for other uses.


Unlike other REE filters, heavy metals are not an issue for Precision Periodic. Along with their REE filter, Precision Periodic also has another version that can filter out the heavy metals.


There is no limitation on throughput through the filter and it can be designed around any application. The largest filter built to date handles 9,000 gallons an hour. This size filter will hold from .5 to 1.2 kilograms of rare earth elements, precious metals, or heavy metals. The filter can be used for thousands of cycles before reconditioning or replacement is needed.


Precision Periodic partners with companies to provide their filtering capabilities for extraction and refining of both rare earth elements and precious metals. The REE filter is currently available for partnership projects.

Mining Filtration System Extracts and Refines Multiple Metals & Eliminates the Need for Cyanide and Carbon - Live Demonstration


Precision Periodic, a UCF Business Incubator Company, announces a live demonstration of their Mining Filtration System that extracts and refines multiple metals in one process and eliminates the need to use cyanide and carbon. Alluvial Miners can now extract to 20,000 mesh and tailing owners can process stockpiled tailings to capture valuable metals previously unattainable.


Orlando, FL, October 31, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Using a proprietary process developed by students from University of Central Florida, Precision Periodic Mining Filtration System extracts and refines, in one process, multiple precious and platinum group metals from industry standard leached ore eliminating the issues of specificity and contamination. The entire process from filtration to the collection and separation of multiple metals is completed in under 90 minutes and the post process refined results for gold and silver are 18k Au and 95% Ag.


The company will be demonstrating the process live on November 29th from 10 am to 2 pm at the University of Central Florida Incubator Center at 3259 Progress Dr. Orlando, Florida USA 32826. Invited to join this event are mining industry professionals such as mining company employees, refiners, equipment providers, consultants, and media.


“Our Mining Filtration System not only increases revenues but also significantly reduces cost. There are four major advancements that our mining filtration system provides and each alone provides huge benefits. These are:

  1. Extracts multiple metals in one process
  2. Post process metals are refined, gold is 18k or better and silver 95%
  3. Time to process from leached ore to refined is 75 minutes for one metal and 15 minutes for each additional
  4. Can replace cyanide leaching with much safer chlorination leaching and eliminate carbon altogether,”
    says Brian J Andrew Chief Operating Officer of Precision Periodic. He continues, “The advancements are so significant that we truly believe the industry experts will have to see it to believe it which is why we are announcing our capabilities along with an event to come see it for yourself.”


For the demonstration Precision Periodic will extract gold and silver from chlorinated leached ore that contains multiple metals such as copper, iron, and nickel. This will be done in a true lab environment. Attendees will see first-hand the complete process from chlorinated leached ore to the end process result of 18k Au and 95% Ag. Precision Periodic’s Mining Filtration System can extract 95-99% of all metal content.


Chemical and non-chemical mining operations having alluvial and/or complex ores can benefit from increased yield through Precision Periodic Mining Filtration System that can recover gold and silver to 20,000 mesh. For those who have stockpiled their concentrates or tailings, the Precision Periodic Mining Filtration System presents a unique opportunity to get more value out of what they have already mined.


To request an invitation to the live demonstration event please go to: https://precisionperiodic.com/demonstration. Due to the nature of performing the process in a laboratory environment, participation is limited.


About Precision Periodic:
Precision Periodic, a UCF Business Incubator Company, developed a proprietary Mining Filtration System that extracts and refines multiple metals in one process and eliminates the need to use cyanide and carbon. All miners can now safely leach using industry standard chlorination to extract to 20,000 mesh plus extract all the valuable metals at one time. Tailing owners can process stockpiles to extract all valuable metals previously unattainable.
