Pilot Plant:

Nueva Innovations has developed its own technology to extract industrial minerals and precious metals in bulk, out of beach sands, glacial tills and gravel deposits.

The process involves a combination of magnetic technology (super magnets) to extract magnetic susceptible minerals AND gravity separation techniques (concentrating spirals) to extract the non-magnetics and precious metals.

Although our pilot plant shown above is the mobile version of our technology, it is mainly used to evaluate properties and can be scaled up to a much larger plant-sized footprint.


  • Magnetite
  • Ilmenite
  • Garnet
  • Zircon
  • Vanadium
  • Fine Gold
  • Platinum
  • Micro Diamonds
  • Neodymium
  • Cerium
  • Lanthanum
  • Cobalt

Super Concentrate:
At the end of the process is a resulting concentrate that is like no other. Only the very lights (blondes) and the very heavies that are non-magnetic remain.

Equipment like Kelsey Jigs and Gemini Tables are then used to pull out the rare earths, gold and other precious metals.
