MPS signs Eurasian Agent (2017)

MPS is pleased to announce that it has secured Ms. Yanja Zagdaa of Sustainability East Asia LLC as an affiliate agent representing them in the Eurasian countries of Mongolia, Russian, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

MPS is expanding its international network in response to growing interest in glycine leaching technology. These four countries represent 14% of the world’s land mass, with very significant resource wealth in copper, gold and other metals. Glycine leaching offers a solution to various metallurgically challenging orebodies and is expected to find significant applications in this region.

Sustainability, a Perth based company, has built a reputation over 18 years in helping the Australian resources and industrial sectors with practical business solutions in the areas of environment and occupational health and safety. Glycine leaching is a safe and green technology and complements Sustainability’s focus on the environment and safety. Sustainability has a longstanding involvement in the Asia region and a permanent office in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Yanja Zagdaa is a metallurgist with over 25 years of experience in research, operations and project development. She has had extensive involvement with both of Mongolia’s mega copper projects (Oyu Tolgoi and Erdenet) as well as experience with Barrick Gold in Russia. She joined Sustainability in 2012 where she focusses on environmental projects as well as metallurgical consulting.
Yanja speaks Mongolian, English and Russian. She joins the MPS network of agents that now covers North and South America and South East Asia, as well as the head office in Australia.

In signing the agreement, Managing Director, Ivor Bryan, commented that the very significant interest demonstrated by large and mid-cap companies in recent times has encouraged MPS to consider a more scalable model to commercialise the technology globally. MPS has already undertaken test programs and studies on projects located in Indonesia, Armenia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Chile, Peru, Zambia, United States, and of course Australia. The most advanced applications of glycine leaching are copper and copper/gold ores, and Mongolia and surrounding countries offer an abundance of project opportunities.
