Gather ACTUAL data on your cyanide levels onsite

Themain goal of the pilot program is to allow gold mine operators toevaluate the impact of our cyanide control solution at their own site and establish cost-saving results for their process. CyanoGuard’ssolution is less susceptible to interference, less prone to measurement errors andproduces results with lower variability when compared with traditional titration methods. There is no maintenance, calibration orcapital investment required. During the period of approximately four weeks, you will ultimately gain clarity on your cyanide usage and concentrations in your process. We will provide you with the product kit, remote onboarding and web training for your operators. Rest assured, you will get our dedicated support during the pilot project.

In the last 30 years, cyanidation of gold has been increasingly more difficult as a result of various key drivers such as declining ore grade, increasing complexity of treatment processes, rising pressure from investors and general public on reducing environmental impact of mining and rising cyanide cost. The common dilemma of most mine operators is to apply excess amounts of cyanide to ensure that all gold is properly dissolved. Yet on the other hand, this also means more cyanide cost, detoxification reagent cost, water consumption and environmental impact. In the late 1980s, efforts to introduce an online cyanide analyser were made but progress has been slow. Not only do most cyanide monitoring technologies today require extensive expertise to operate, they are often not real-time, and results can be highly unreliable.
