Gekko’s Carbon Scout achieves commercial release

Following the collaboration agreement signed with Curtin University for the development and commercialisation of a cutting-edge carbon management technology, Gekko Systems is pleased to report that the units have now reached the commercial release stage. 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 ±0.5 grams of carbon per litre of pulp.

Gekko Systems’ Managing Director, Elizabeth Lewis-Gray 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 tailing dams.”

The machines have been trialled in several locations during the first half of the year, delivering conclusive and positive results on each occasion.
