Pro-Or operates an industrial prototype plant for the recovery of Platinum Group Elements (Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium or PGMs). The plant is located near Quebec City in St-Augustin-de-Desmaures. Its patented process yields more than 97% recoveries of PGMs, and is not only much less capital extensive but also operates much more rapidly than conventional plants thus dramatically lowering the amount of time that its customers capital is tied up as work-in-process inventory. Pro-Or's mission is to sustainably recover precious metals by the recycling of end-of-life PGM containing components while meeting global "green" standards for the automobile industry.
Pro-Or also holds the mineral rights to six mining properties and has focused its exploration activities on the Menarik property in the James Bay area, in the Province of Quebec, the site of a major chromite deposit with occurrences of gold, nickel, copper and platinum group metals (PGMs). The operation of Pro-Or's patented and proprietary processes to such deposits may lead to a breakthrough in low cost primary mining metallurgy in the near future.
