Miami, FL – July 6, 2020 (EmergingGrowth.com NewsWire) — EmergingGrowth.com, a leading independent small cap media portal with an extensive history of providing unparalleled content for the Emerging Growth markets and companies, reports on Bactech Environmental Corp. (OTC Pink: BCCEF), (CSE: BAC).
In the past week a tailings breach was reported in the same area of Ecuador that BacTech Environmental Corporation (OTC:BCCEF, CSE:BAC) plans to build a bioleach processing plant. Some 50 tonnes of toxic mine tailings were released into the local river.
BacTech can alleviate the issues related to the release of toxic materials into the local water supplies. Bioleaching, in addition to its use for processing high arsenic concentrates, can also be used effectively in cleaning up toxic mining legacies, or tailings as they are called. BacTech’s plans call for the construction of a bioleach processing plant in 2021 in the area referenced in the article. One of the possible feeds for the plant could be material that is extracted from mine tailings that not only contain toxic elements, but also gold and silver. Ponce Enriquez, a mining town in southern Ecuador has been chosen as the site for the first bioleach plant and coincidentally the same place of the tailings breach in the attached article.
Events as depicted in the Ecuador story are not rare, in fact they are increasing in number. Every major gold mining company such as Barrick Gold (NYSE:GOLD), Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM). Kinross (NYSE:K) and Yamana (NYSE:AUY) have to deal with the long-term outlook for tailings after they have depleted the mines and moved to a new challenge. The use of bioleaching to reprocess the tailings and remove sulphides that produce acid rock drainage or elemental arsenic that is naturally in the rock, would allow for reduced levels of anxiety for future generations.

BacTech is promoting the use of its proprietary bioleach processing technology to treat historic arsenopyrite concentrates and tailings produced in the Ponce Enriquez area of Southern Ecuador.
BacTech has agreed to participate with a group looking to reprocess the Arsenic Stockpile in Snow Lake, Manitoba as a technology partner.
