About Group 11 Technologies Inc.
Effective August 28, 2020, Group 11 finalized all necessary Organizational, Shareholder, and Licensing documentation with its founding partners to commence formal operations. Group 11's initial steps will include the acquisition and subsequent testing of already identified gold projects that demonstrate specific qualities lending themselves to Group 11's environmentally superior processes. Group 11 is committed to providing commercially viable, sustainable alternatives to conventional mining for the extraction and processing of precious metals.
Group 11 was founded and is owned by enCore Energy Corp. ("enCore") (TSXV:EU; OTCQB:ENCUF) with 40% of the common stock, EnviroLeach with 40% of the common stock and Golden Predator Mining Corp. ("Golden Predator") (TSXV: GPY; OTCQB: NTGSF) with 20% of the common stock. enCore has contributed $750,000 in initial funding and will provide in-situ extraction expertise; EnviroLeach has contributed a license for Group 11 to use its environmentally friendly metal recovery process and will provide chemical and metallurgical expertise; and Golden Predator will contribute mobile processing equipment and expertise in utilizing EnviroLeach's environmentally friendly solution for recovery of gold from sulphide concentrates. Group 11, a private company, will finance all ongoing research and development expenditures for in-situ and secondary recovery applications.
Duane Nelson, President, and CEO of EnviroLeach commented: "We are very excited to be a part of this important and disruptive new mining initiative. The in-situ recovery of gold using the EnviroLeach/Group 11 combined processes, has the potential to change how the world mines gold. This technology provides a relatively non-invasive, low CAPEX/OPEX alternative to conventional gold mining. This has the potential to unlock the value of thousands of smaller gold deposits, and those in sensitive environments. The combined talented teams of scientists, metallurgists, and executives all have the necessary experience, expertise, and resources to drive this forward. We anticipate the significant ownership of Group 11 and the resulting royalties will help drive value to our company."
