The cyanidation plant is meant to encourage mining safely and efficiently, whilst not compromising on but rather enhancing recovery. For this reason, it was developed as a more environmentally conscious and better way of using cyanidation as a gold extraction process: the TriTank.
The small and medium scale cyanidation plant takes on a triangular single tank design as opposed to the out-dated multiple circular design, with multiple benefits including enhanced metallurgical performance, smaller land footprint, less construction materials and relocation possible reducing “mine-to-process” transport costs.
With wide range of applications, it can be setup for Carbon-In-Pulp (CIP), Carbon-In-Leach (CIL), or Carousel operation. The Tritank is not a cyanidation tank, it is a cyanidation system. With six reaction compartments or sectors condensed into one conventional tank, not only is the footprint smaller, but a whole host of advantages accrue to the user’s benefit.
