After Week 6, the list is still filled with Power 5 programs.We have a newcomer to the misery as well: Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are coming off a 48-42 loss to Iowa State, which occurred two weeks after they got whupped by Texas Tech 41-17.Some of the other Power 5 teams on this list (Rutgers, UCLA, Oregon State) have been on for a while and are likely to spend the entire season in the “Bottom 10.”That is not a place you want to be.Here is the full ESPN “Bottom 10” after Week 6:UTEPSan Jose StateUConnRiceOklahoma StateTexas StateRutgersOregon StateNebraskaUCLAListen, this list updates weekly, so a couple of wins usually gets you off it. There’s time for some of these teams to turn it around.However, like we said, some seem like total lost causes at this point.
Technology provider GreenGold says it has been awarded a ReCYN™ design and install contract with PT Agincourt Resources to detoxify tailings and recover cyanide and copper at its Martabe gold-silver operation in Sumatra, Indonesia.Jakarta- and Perth-based GreenGold will deliver the project with preferred fabricators for specialist equipment packages, the company said.In a report published last year, Whittle Consulting called the ReCYN process “a world-leading approach” in cyanide recovery, metal recovery and tailings detoxification. “Based on an innovative resin-bead absorbent, ReCYN reduces cyanide consumption by 50%, capturing free cyanide from the plant tailings and recycling it back into the leach circuit while recovering metal complexes and making them available for sale,” Whittle said.Whittle also said adopting the technology could provide a $126.9 million upside to the project.GreenGold said it had received the contract following a record influx of enquires for the technology.GreenGold CEO, Malcolm Paterson, said of the Martabe contract: “We have come up with an elegant design to fit the space constrained site. We also will be recovering cyanide and copper which previously was destroyed or sent to tails, turning a cost into an economic benefit for the mine.“We are looking forward to delivering on this strategically important project, and continuing to build on our proven metallurgy and process capability within the precious/base metals sector globally.”The Martabe mine has a resource base of some 7.4 Moz of gold and 69 Moz of silver.
