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
