Gold Recovery

Activated carbon reduces fines formation and increases yield.


A major use of activated carbon in mining is in gold recovery, where granular activated carbon (GAC) is used for adsorption of the gold-cyanide complex in carbon-in-pulp (CIP) and carbon-in-leach (CIL) systems, or in carbon-in-column (CIC) systems after a heap leach operation carbon. We offer a wide and dedicated product range including extruded and high-quality broken grades for gold recovery applications. These activated carbons combine superior hardness with adsorption/desorption kinetics and capacity, resulting in fewer fines and associated gold losses.
