Thanks JLB & pelm69 for the links to the interviews.  In the interview with Yves Noel, he mentions that Orbite process is also considered/tested for various applications and that they are in dicsussion with several Canadian and worldwide companies, even for nickel and copper, to have better extraction rates, word-to-word translation "would allow producing a larger quantity of material at lower costs".

 

JLB actually, well found. I do not know if you've seen but I fell over was rummaging on the site Graffici.ca. Yves untrevue with a Christmas Radio Canada, in which he already knew that on November 30 the recovery of hydrochloric acid was already 99.75% that this acid is also used for the iron and make steel titanne innoxydable. He also mentions having made test of other minerals and ends with Bape.
