Cyanide Recovery Mining SGS
The new Hannah process for cyanide recovery was developed by SGS. The process uses strong resin technology to extract free cyanide radicals, as well as metal cyanide complexes, from gold tailings. Acidification, Volatilization, Reneutralization (AVR) AVR was the first process used to recover cyanide from gold tailings and, more recently, pulps. The process has been in use for over 50 years.
