GREENVILLE – Modern Mining Technology, which focuses on the recovery of gold, precious metals and other valuable materials from so-called “e-waste,” plans to go public.

The company announced plans for an offering of 2 million shares on Tuesday. A statement has been filed with the SEC.

“Modern Mining intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for research and development expenses, marketing expenditures, capital expenditures, working capital, and general corporate purposes,” the company said.

If the IPO proceeds, shares will be listed on the NYSE American exchange under the symbol “MDRN.”

The company operates a refinery in Raleigh which Modern Mining says is “already tested and operational, fully permitted” with a capacity of 1,400 tons of “concentrate” per year.
