The Itronics Story
Itronics, which was named one of the first International Green Heroes by an independent international environmental group that recognizes top environmental achievements worldwide, is a cleantech company that utilizes science and engineering to create and commercialize recycling, mineral, and nutrient technologies. The Company’s annual sales are approximately $3 million and are expected to grow significantly in coming years.
Itronics created and operates a vertically integrated silver-bearing photoliquid recycling business that manufactures specialty chelated liquid fertilizers sold under the Company’s GOLD’n GRO brand, pure silver bullion, and silver-bearing glass. This means that Itronics takes one of the most toxic liquid wastes produced in the U.S., and turns it virtually 100 percent into useable products, including award-winning GOLD’n GRO chelated liquid fertlizers that are, in turn, very beneficial for the environment. Itronics is the only company in the world to have accomplished this achievement.
Itronics has acquired a 6,000 acre Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) mineral exploration property named the Fulstone Project in the prolific Yerington Copper Mining District in northwestern Nevada. Itronics is evaluating mineral production, processing, and manufacturing opportunities for the Fulstone Project and for Itronics’ technologies that may emerge in the district. Its founder and President, Dr. John Whitney, earned a Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University with a Doctorate in Mineral Economics and has served as a consultant to the U.S. government and to Congress on mineral development issues.
Itronics maintains an on-going technology application research and development program with a focus on sustainability whose objective is to create new projects that can be expanded to commercial scale.
Itronics’ headquarters, operations, and research facilities are located in Reno, Nevada. Itronics Iron Oxide Copper Gold Fulstone Project is located northwest of Yerington, Nevada in the Yerington Mining District.
