Our experienced staff can provide general consulting on various mineral and metal projects, as well as desktop / conceptual studies, scoping studies, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies.
Research and Development
Research and development are fundamental phases for most mineral and metal projects. Whether you are meeting performance goals for your customers or implementing in-house cost cutting measures, understanding the minerals and their proper commercial applications are crucial. A well-defined research and development program provides the best information for a well-executed project.
The Mineral Lab
Our state of the art laboratories are designed to provide the fundamental testing and analysis of minerals including fillers and pigments, various metals, and hard materials. Key processing and product development measures allow for complete in-house project development. Mineral characterization, drill core testing, and final product application testing are all typical laboratory protocols. Typical ASTM standards and best practices are followed. We are glad to work with our clients to perform tests per their requested standards.
The Pilot Plant
Our pilot and production scale equipment is designed for flexibility and can function as complete systems for customizing any project. Thermal processing, toll processing, and toll manufacturing are all common processes executed on the pilot and production scale equipment.
Drilling & Land Exploration
Mineral Resources, a division of the Ginn Technology Group, is your innovative resource for drilling and land exploration and mining. Our services include the exploration, drilling and testing of valuable fall-line minerals such as kaolin clay, silica sand, heavy mineral sands, bauxite, limestone, mineral waste sites, and other subterranean materials. Mineral Resources has provided clients accurate and money saving exploration and testing innovations for many years.
Mineral resources and reserves are valuable natural resources to many land owners who are fortunate to own land and mineral rights. GMT is an independent group that can manage and enhance the value of the land and minerals. GMT has over 25 years of experience supporting and providing landowners with mineral sales, leasing, mining, and conservation options. GMT’s testing and evaluation services integrated with Mineral Resources’ drilling and exploration services offer a unique combination of valuable assistance to the landowner with long-term strategic decisions.
Mining and Mineral Development
Mineral Resources offers options for mine development as well as crude clay sales. Mine development and mineral extraction requires a range of activities / expertise including exploration and mine-prep drilling, crude quality testing and control, mine design, EPD permitting, and physical mining and hauling. Mineral Resources has experience and knowledge regarding all of these activities and services.
Process Engineering and Design
We have the expertise to determine the best solutions to develop state of the art systems to maximize your process and create the best products.
Extracting Value from Waste Streams
Managing mining and industrial waste/secondary streams present many financial and environmental challenges. Landfill diversion and creating value from the waste streams are key goals of most companies that strive for sustainability excellence. At GMT we evaluate the waste streams by implementing the triple R approach…Recover, Recycle, Reuse.
Waste streams vary in composition from organics such as polymers and cellulose to inorganic materials such as minerals and metals. Many waste streams are exothermic which incorporate energy as a potential product. We analyze and research all aspects of the waste stream to meet and understand corporate goals. GMT provides many solutions to our clients by:
(1) characterizing the waste stream, (2) identifying valuable waste stream components and (3) designing systems that maximize the value.
