How we recover gold

We carry out pyrometallurgical processes in our facilities in Castelluccio (province of Arezzo) and Valenza (province of Alessandria). This technology is complex and constantly evolving: it is the result of large investments, such as the new foundry 4.0*, opened in 2021, as well as experience and research. We work alongside technology partners that lead us to potential innovations and improved production efficiency, with the objective of using as few resources as possible in our processes.
