RENO, Nev., March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Itronics Inc. (OTC:ITRO), an emerging "Cleantech Materials" growth Company that manufactures GOLD'n GRO Multi-Nutrient Fertilizers and produces silver, gold, zinc, and critical minerals recovered from industrial and mining waste, announced today that it has formed the Itronics Advisory Board to provide technical and business advice to the Itronics Board and senior management. Leonard Harris will be Chair of the Advisory Board.
Mr. Harris is a highly respected Metallurgical Engineer who has worked in Australia, South America, Canada, South Africa, Indonesia, Ghana, China, Japan, Russia, and the United States. His expertise includes operations, design and engineering, senior management, consulting, and he has served as Director of various mining companies. His background covers precious metals, base metals, coal, and environmental issues.

Rock Kleen removes cyanide and blasting nitrates, cleaning the rock for industrial mineral use while recovering gold, silver, base metals, ferrous metals, and mineral nutrients. The ICMC is the future home of the planned Itronics GOLD'n GRO Multi-Nutrient Fertilizer manufacturing plant, the Printed Circuit Board Refinery, and the Rock Kleen demonstration plant.
