Mining

The best known application for activated carbons in the mining sector is for the extraction and recovery of gold (Au), although it is also used for some other precious metals.

In the gold industry, there are three main methods for extraction of the metal, all of which use granular activated carbons in the recovery of gold from cyanide leachate solutions:
– Carbon-in-Pulp (CIP)
– Carbon-in-Leach (CIL), includes ‘Heap Leach’
– Carbon-in-Column (CIL)
