PRESS RELEASE: This follows the collaboration agreement signed with Curtin University in Western Australia last year for the development and commercialisation of the cutting-edge automated carbon management technology.
Gekko stated that the all new Carbon Scout promises to quickly become critical for gold process plant optimisation and for minimising soluble gold losses on tails.
The self-contained device collects slurry samples from carbon-in-pulp and carbon-in-leach tanks to determine the distribution of the activated carbon in the pulp for each tank, to an accuracy of ±0.5g of carbon per litre of pulp.
Elizabeth Lewis-Gray, managing director of Gekko Systems, said: “We are excited to be offering gold mine operators a real solution to minimise their soluble gold losses. At Gekko we strongly believe that the new Carbon Scout technology can make the difference between storing gold in the bank, rather than in tailings dams.”
The machines have been trialled in several locations during the first half of the year, delivering conclusive and positive results on each occasion.
