What is iCON?
iCON is a family of Mineral Processing Products specifically designed to recover fine gold. iCON was designed by the professional Engineers at Falcon Concentrators and uses the same patented technologies used at the largest mines in the world.
The heart of the iCON Gold Recovery family is the world renowned iCON i150 Concentrator.
iCON uses classification and enhanced gravity in its centrifugal concentrators to ensure that you are recovering the most gold possible.
iCON is supported by governments around the world due to its ability to recover gold without the use of mercury, cyanide and other toxic chemicals.
iCON was designed for the United Nations’ Global Mercury Project to bring professional techniques to small miners throughout the world.
iCON uses the same proven technology as the Falcon brand of professional mining products: it was designed by Falcon’s engineers and is now a product of iCON Gold Recovery Corp. Our History and Environmental Responsibility are discussed on our website.
Features that make the iCON Concentrator ideal for small scale applications include:

General Comments on Mineral Processing
Throughout history gold processing has been plagued with inefficiency and contamination. Millions of dollars of fine gold have been discarded in the tails or “washed down the creek” due to inadequate processing.
Other operations have long put the health of both workers, and our planet at risk with the use of mercury, cyanide and other dangerous chemicals.
iCON technology successfully addresses both issues, ensuring that the highest percentage of gold is recovered and no hazardous chemicals are needed.
The most important factor in mineral processing is classification; the relative size of the gold you are processing must be known. Mineral processing is expensive and time consuming.
Processing large material that is known to have no value costs both money and time. With classification, time, energy and money will not be wasted processing excess material that is known to have no value.
For example, if you know that your largest gold is .5mm then there is no reason to put 10mm material through your process. Also, the large feed will affect the efficiency on any process. The large material will hinder the recovery of the finer materials.
For example, one miner improved his recovery from 40% to 70% simply by screening his feed from 8mm to 2mm. No gold was lost, because his largest gold was around .5mm.
The iCON method will improve your process by screening your feed to the proper size.
This will reduce the volume of feed and increase the percentage of gold that you recover.
iCON Gold Recovery uses a 2 step process; classification and concentration.
Your feed will be screened to 2mm (or less based on your results) before processing in the concentrator. Any material larger than the screen will pass over the nugget trap. This will give the user confidence that they are collecting the BIG gold while minimizing the feed to the concentrator and maximizing its efficiency.
