Sustainable Mining
using an environmentally friendly Cyanid Substitute

The Changing Investment Climate for Mining

The mining Industry has many opportunities driven by the increasing demand for new and old metals and minerals needed within the zero emissions economy of this changing world. But with these opportunities comes responsibilities; public opinion is changing and the demand for cleaner and more sustainable practices is getting louder

Becoming an Intelligent Mining Company with waste reduction &
zero emissions

Mining companies must act on their carbon footprint and environmental impact in order to meet the targets set by the UN or National or International bodies. Failure to do so will expose them to the risk of fines or other sanctions imposed as a result, it is these risks, plus the negative publicity of being a “polluter” that is increasingly swaying investor decisions. Scythian is commiteed to minimising environmental risks and increasing productivity by becoming an “Intelligent Mining Company”, and by:

  • Developing a digital strategy & managing digital transformations

  • Automating Operations and digitizing assets

  • Establishing a Digital mine Nerve center

  • By monitoring all aspects of the mining operation to reduce waste, maximize metal recovery, and achieve zero emissions

Our Commitmets

Our Commitment

Following our Scythian Heritage of preserving our future, SMG is creating a

Green, self-funding Mining Growth Platform in Central Asia

Clean Mining

No cyanide as well as “Emissions Free Mining” using Certified Emission Reductions, EFECs, or 20MW solar & wind generation systems


>70% Au recovery from oxide zone, 47% in the transitional ore using intended gravity circuit-Knelson Concentrators


Our business strategies reflect our heritage of loving gold and nature, reaping the rewards of the earth’s riches, whilst giving back to the earth


Once the oxide ore is mined, we will switch to tank leaching using Clean Mining Technology solutions instead of cyanide


Two near-production Au assets, selected for low OpEx & CapEx costs, based on simple open cut mining & simple metallurgy


TAG and porphyry style deposits are our preferred exploration model
