MINING: THE CHALLENGE
The gold extraction industry faces perennial challenges even in times when gold prices are high. Mines must strive to process ore of diminishing quality, and control operating costs at levels that maximize the return on investment. The need to maintain environmental responsibility adds to the challenge. Selecting a provider of high quality activated carbons is vital to the bottom line. Almost half of all Adsorption-Desorption-Recovery (ADR) plants worldwide use Jacobi’s activated carbons GoldSorb™ and PicaGold™.
Furthermore, at Jacobi we understand that technical support beyond the sale of the carbon is of critical value to the mining industry. Our Carbon Management Program helps customers to understand how activated carbon behaviour affects circuit performance and ultimately gold recovery levels, and includes services such as audits of carbon circuits, analytical testing of carbon samples, and on-site troubleshooting of carbon adsorption systems.
