The study of electrochemistry and hydrometallurgy are both important in the extraction and recovery of valuable metals from their ores. This laboratory has the capabilities to develop novel electrochemical-based techniques for the processing of not only primary ores but also secondary sources like tailings, acid mine drainage and electronic wastes for a sustainable future.
Research activities conducted in the GeoChemistry Laboratory are related to our flagship research on transformative technologies. By developing novel electrochemical-based techniques for the extraction and recovery of precious and critical metals from low-grade materials and waste streams, we seek to transform how the resources industry and society manage our finite resources for the benefit of all.
