  • Ecosphere Mining will also use its patented environmental solutions and technologies to treat contaminated water from acid-mine drainage, abandoned water-filled pits, leachate pits, tailing ponds and high priority abandoned mining sites.

  • Site Description
    The Richardson Flat Tailings site covers about 160 acres in a small valley 1½ miles northeast of Park City, Utah. The site consists of a tailings dam and impoundment that were used to capture and hold mill tailings from the Ontario Mine near Park City. Hazardous substances at the site include heavy metals such as arsenic cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, silver, and zinc.
    Historic aerial photos show that a tailings pile existed as early as 1953. The most recent tailings disposal in the area occurred from 1975 to 1981, when the site owner, United Park City Mines (UPCM), leased it's mining operations to Noranda Mining and Park City Ventures.
    The site is located next to Silver Creek, which is classified by the state of Utah as a cold-water fishery. In 1989, EPA and State of Utah officials observed mine tailings at the site sinking into an on-site diversion ditch and Silver Creek. Surface water coming from a diversion ditch surrounding the site is contaminated with heavy metals. This ditch empties into wetlands below the tailings dam and flows into Silver Creek. Groundwater below the site is also contaminated with heavy metals.
    The primary concerns are the site's effect on surface water and groundwater quality in the area, and the potential for people or wildlife to come into direct contact with the tailings or contaminated soils.
    Cleanup activities at the site are being conducted by UPCM, in cooperation with the Upper Silver Creek Watershed Group. The Upper Silver Creek Watershed Group is comprised of federal, state, and local agencies, local elected officials, and community representatives who have been working together since 1999 to address environmental contamination in the watershed left behind from historical mining activities.

  • Think about it a second. How did the design of the Ozonix Ore Recovery Equipment (ORE) come about? Ecosphere needed to be working with someone with industry experience to come up with a feasible design that incorporates the Ozonix technology so that they could fabricate their demonstration model. They are not mining experts themselves. So, speculate on who it might be. Their business plan is to partner with leaders in the industries within which they want to monetize the licensing of their technologies. There are other mining companies in and around their office in Utah so it could be any one of them. However, the only other speculation is the article last fall, Greener Technologies Making Mining Cleaner, More Efficient in Environmental Leader which mentions Rio Tinto and Barrick Gold as adopters of green technologies, as well as, mentions Ecosphere Mining, LLC and its Ozonix technology as a new company offering a green technology solution for water management. It is a speculation that either of these two firms may have pilot programs going on with Ozonix equipment, but that is all we have without real announcements from Ecosphere on happenings within that subsidiary. So we speculate until we hear more.

  • Good video interview for you to Google. Rio Tinto has their focus on water management.

  • Time to knock on their door...
    George Chapas, Director of New Business Development for Ecosphere Technologies, stated, "Brasil Clean Energy is one of our newest Ozonix(R) technology licensing partners, and we have been cultivating and working closely with them for over a year on the feasibility of introducing our patented Ozonix(R) technology into the Food and Beverage industry in Brazil."

    Chapas continued, "This agreement marks the beginning of our expansion outside of the oil and gas market and demonstrates continued demand for a cost-effective, patented and proven solution for replacing chemical biocides and managing the large volumes of water required for a wide variety of industrial processes. We expect that several international companies will soon recognize the benefits of Ecosphere's patented Ozonix(R) technology for the Food and Beverage industry, resulting in additional Ozonix(R) licenses that are currently available for numerous other countries and regions around the world."

  • Meter keeps spinning, Ozonix keeps cleaning. New deals include manufacturing and residual royalties that are volume based agreements so we are at the start of a good thing in my opinion.

  • Post on July 10 - Cleaning water on-site.
    Let the volume based royalties begin along with further equipment orders from Fidelity National Environmental Solutions. Ecosphere still owns 31% of FNES

  • Not sure why it is not listed in Yahoo ESPH News.. Pretty exciting since Ecosphere Food & Beverage, LLC is a 100% owned subsidiary of Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. That is what is exciting about these new subsidiaries to me, as well as, diversifying the use of the Ozonix technology into another industry is huge and the Food & Beverage sector was not what I was expecting from them at this point. Surprise to me.

    Ecosphere Technologies Announces Completion of Ozonix(R) Ore Recovery Equipment (ORE) for Ecosphere Mining, LLC.

    Ecosphere Also Completes Mobile Operations Vehicle (MOV) to Support Field Operations

    STUART, Fla., Dec. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPH), a water engineering, technology licensing and innovative U.S. manufacturing company, today announced completion of its first Ozonix® Ore Recovery Equipment (ORE) system for Ecosphere Mining, LLC., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and a new Mobile Operations Vehicle (MOV) that is designed to remain on location for extended periods of time when Ecosphere is demonstrating its Ozonix® ORE system for customers around the United States. The new Ecosphere Ozonix® ORE system and MOV will be on-display at Ecosphere's Annual Shareholders Meeting in Orlando, FL at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek Convention Center on Friday, December 13, 2013.

    The Ecosphere MOV will be used to transport Ecosphere's Ozonix® ORE system as well as a wide variety of Ecosphere's mobile Ozonix® water treatment systems across a broad range of industries that Ecosphere licenses its patented technologies to, including but not limited to Agriculture, Food & Beverage, Industrial, Marine, Mining and Municipal wastewater treatment. In the hard rock mining industry, Ecosphere's patented Ozonix® technology, combined with the new Ecosphere Ozonix ORE system, will be used to pre-treat mining ores to remove sulfur and irons and to increase ore recovery rates, while also reducing the extensive amount of toxic chemicals associated with conventional mining leaching operations.

    "Hope Is Not A Strategy" is a great book that all the Ecosphere Board of Directors should read. They should not sit back and hope to be asked to license their technologies... The problem does not look to be lacking in the marketing area. It does not look to me to be lacking in the research/development area. They need aggressive sales and business development executives with specific experience in the vertical licensing areas they are targeting. Hopefully they are moving in that direction. Shareholder value and market capitalization will only grow with further partnerships for all of the new LLCs that they have created. When that starts happening this little water treatment & solar technology company may make a big splash!

  • Hopefully we license the heck out of the Ozonix process. We are a Bloomberg New Energy Pioneer award winner...
    The annual water-treatment market for hard-rock mining is forecast to grow 85 percent to $17 billion by 2019 to meet the demands of gold, iron, copper and nickel explorers, Bluefield Research said.
    Heightened competition in a fragmented sector has water providers and treatment specialists including GE Water, Suez Environnement, Veolia Environnement SA and Pentair Plc jockeying for market share, Boston-based Bluefield said in a report.

    Those non-core devices should provide further diversification of licensing possibilities. They have actual demonstration models for potential partners to see. Without actual equipment all they had to show was Photoshop concept drawings. They set up new LLCs and hired a outside licensing firm, as well as, an investment banking firm. Now they just need to make the deals to increase shareholder value. That is why I believe we are at the starting line for this start up company. Another speculation would be that FNES either finally focuses on growing the Ozonix oil and gas market globally or they broker a deal to sell or spin off their ownership in that division to a real player in the global oil and gas services market. Lots of possibilities out there and outsourced firms helping to develop the monetization plans for the technologies. This seems like the starting point to me for increased shareholder value. Just my opinion of course.

    If injection wells are banned or highly regulated due to causing earthquakes that would make water recycling the mainstream process for frack water management. Earthquakes may finally scare energy companies and regulators to do this fracking in a more responsible manner. ESPH could see widespread licensing of its process through Fidelity National Environmental Solutions as a result.

  • Licensing of the Ozonix and Ecos Powercube around the corner and that will be a catalyst for a bottle rocket move. In my opinion.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Fidelity National Environmental Solutions (Ecosphere Technologies - Global Ozonix - Energy Industry Partner) is a component of this new tracking stock Fidelity National Financial Ventures (FNFV).
