With gold prices on the rise, maximizing recovery and increasing revenue is crucial for your operation. Many mine sites are unaware of exactly how much gold is being lost every year by discarding or selling their carbon fines. It is not uncommon for an operation to have stockpiled hundreds, or even thousands, of ounces of gold locked in carbon fines.
Shipping this valuable resource to a smelter is often very difficult, as it may contain high levels of mercury and other unwanted contaminants. In addition, shipping and smelting charges are incurred, allowing you to recovery only a portion of the gold value at a high cost.
The consequences of sending carbon fines to tails are obvious; millions of dollars in gold value could be lost forever. KCA has now developed an on-site solution to your carbon fines problem, allowing you to process your stockpiled material and recover 98+% of your gold.
The KCA Carbon Converter economically processes all types of "trash" carbon, giving you a concentrated gold ash product that you can leach or smelt directly for near 100% recovery. This semi-continuous unit requires little maintenance and offers a very fast payback.
