SODIUM CYANIDE NaCN
Sodium cyanide has been used in the extraction of gold from ore for over a century. Today it is still considered the most efficient extraction method – with sodium cyanide used in the leaching process in most gold mining operations.
Solid sodium cyanide is produced to form a white crystalline briquette or ‘cyanoid’. These briquettes are highly soluble and can be delivered to customers using Sparge system, or in flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs).
Liquid sodium cyanide is delivered to mine sites via purpose-built isotanks that are suitable for road or rail transport.
