Gold Dore Processing

Gold is produced at some mines as part of the process of mining and refining other metals, such as copper. At those operations, gold is refined to an acceptable purity as part of the copper production process. At most gold mines, the gold "dore" is sent to a refinery for further processing

The most common means of recovering gold is the Cyanidation process.
Cyanidation involves the leaching of ore in a strictly controlled alkaline cyanide leach
solution, after which the gold is then re-dissolved and subsequently smelted into doré bars that are shipped to the refineries.
The doré bars are further refined to become as close to pure gold as possible, in the form of gold
bullion bars. They are then given 'good delivery status', the international standard for quality,
providing assurance that they contain the quantity and purity of gold that has been stamped on them


Spices processing

Commercial Production of packaged spices goes through three main stages end up with storage. The process is very simple which starts from the procurement of whole spices sent to the grinding process where mixing is also carried out. Mixed spices are stored in tanks or large sized tumblers from where it is shifted to the packaging machines to be converted into desired packet sizes

What makes it a lucrative business for an entrepreneur is a high probability of generating
increasing profits by maintaining quality and competitive price as the product has vital standing

COIMBATORE: The State government is taking steps to ensure that industrial development is not affected by the global economic slowdown, Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin said here on Sunday.
Inaugurating the State-level convention of Small and Micro Industries (STICON 2010) organised by the Tamil Nadu Small and Tiny Industries' Association (TANSTIA) and the Coimbatore District Small Industries' Association (CODISSIA), he said the gvernment continued to provide benefits for industrial development. It was also taking steps to manage the power shortage, and had ensured peaceful industrial relations.
The State Government's budgetary allocation for the micro, small and medium-scale enterprises (MSMEs) during the last four years was Rs. 282.79 crore and for 2010-2011, it was Rs. 98.26 crore. Subsidies given to these industries during the last four years under different schemes were Rs. 83.73 crore.
In 2010-2011, it was Rs. 56.14 crore.
The State gvernment announced the MSME Policy in 2008. Till 2006, the State had 78 estates and by 2011 it would increase to 108, providing employment to 2.24 lakh people.

There were 6,774 units in these estates. The units produced goods worth Rs. 11,433 crore for the domestic market and exports were to the tune of Rs. 3,112 crore. Revenue to the State gvernment from the units in the estates was Rs. 1,80 crore.

In the Industrial Policy announced in 2007, the State gvernment said 20 per cent land would be earmarked for MSMEs in the new SIPCOT Industrial estates.

The benefits would start reaching the industries soon.
The gvernment would study the demand for uninsterrupted power supply to the MSMEs and also whether they would be affected by the power tariff hike.
minister for Rural Industries Pongalur N. Palanisamy said entrepreneurs were interested in starting business in the State because of availability of skilled workers, educated youth and infrastructure.

Points to Ponder

The payments due to the MSMEs, for the supplies effected by them to the automobile industry alone, is claimed to be around Rs 2,000 crore-Rs 3,000 crore
MSMEs consumed about 30-35 per cent of the key raw materials such as copper, zinc, aluminium and steel.
The price of copper zoomed from $6000/tonne to $9100/tonne within a period of a month in July-Aug 2008 in the international market and taking cue from it, domestic producers also hiked the rates, which left the consuming industries at a huge cost disadvantage as the domestic industries could not absorb the increase in prices
70-80 per cent of the components needed by the major industries were supplied by the micro and small enterprises
