Solution on Cyanide treatment for Gold Mines and Industry.
Stopping pollution from Cyanide used within Gold Mines.
Mining Gold has the added issue that you need Cyanide to separate the Gold from the rock. A process called “Cyanide Leaching” or Cyanidation has been the main gold extraction technology since the 1970s. Cyanide, (NaCN) in the form of a dilute sodium cyanide solution, is used to dissolve and separate gold from ore. This process was first used in large scale commercial mining from as early as 1889. Surface discharge of excess mine dewatering water and other waters to main waterways may contain excess quantities of arsenic, total dissolved solids, boron, copper, fluoride, and zinc.
The issue with this is what does the Gold mine do with the Cyanide once processed?
Unfortunately, the cyanide is often pumped into a local lake to dilute or into a local river with the inevitable consequences of people further down the valley being effected. You only need a small amount of cyanide in water to cause huge problems.
GWT is a specialist in many forms of water, effluent and sewage treatment systems for Industry. Our expertise in the use of bacteria to break down both solid waste as well as polluted fluids also is encompassed with our ability to break down cyanide. Providing Gold mines a Cyanide treatment is important to local people and to the local eco system. We have two ways of doing this using different technologies. Both are dangerous but both are effective. Should you need help in neutralising Cyanide the please call us today.
We are now working on new ways to treat cyanide through the use of natural plants in special environments which will break down the cyanide.
