KELL PROCESS

I see that PGL and the ZIM govt have entered into a MOU to erect these benefication plnts for pgm 's - all at a lower cost and presumably with a margin - so 5 years or so later this

project - which will also run in SA at Sedibelo - looks like a value add of note - not just to the industry lifecycle and profit wise- but of course to the country - and PGL... ( I know .. water and bridges!

but it is perhaps the end of the beginning..)

Yup. Kell process could be a game changer in pgm field if it can be implemented successfully at scale. Not only a fraction of the cost of smelting, but could also increase yield of other metals like cobalt that get lost in the very high temperature platinum smelting process.
