Draslovka, a Czech Republic-based family owned global business, will acquire MPS and will build on its market position as a leading global mining solutions provider to the gold and silver mining industries and enable the further development of environmentally sustainable solutions for the extraction of ‘energy metals’ including copper, nickel and cobalt that is underpinning the pursuit of electromobility and digitalisation globally.
Ivor Bryan, Managing Director of Mining and Process Solutions commented: “The acquisition of MPS by Draslovka is the culmination of a 12 month exercise to identify and secure a major partner that can provide a global network to commercialise our glycine leaching technology developed in partnership with Curtin University. The international expansion by Draslovka into the mining industry in North America, Southern Africa, as well as their existing business in Europe and our presence in Australia, provides truly global routes and support for our market ready solutions to be made available to mining clients. We are excited by the opportunity this provides to continue our passion to further develop and implement our pipeline of innovative solutions that offer economic and ESG benefits to the mining industry.”
