CyanoGuard set for South America cyanide monitoring pilots

CyanoGuard says it is rapidly expanding its customer base in the Americas following widespread customer success with its ground-breaking cyanide monitoring solution.

With active or upcoming pilots in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru – some of the leading gold-producing countries, CyanoGuard is closing in on its mission to minimise cyanide consumption and operational costs and improve precious metal recoveries for gold mines, it said.

Andres Pereira, Senior Engineer from NALCO Water, which is overseeing the implementation and daily usage of the CyanoGuard cyanide monitoring solution at a gold mining operation in the Antioquia region of Colombia, said: “The protocol, the procedure, and the equipment are everything we expected. We are so happy with CyanoGuard’s technology since it will make our lives easier. It also minimises our exposure to chemicals which is also very valuable to us.”

Margarita Zvezda, Head of Sales at CyanoGuard, added: “We are very excited to learn that senior industry experts like Andres recognise the substantial value our solutions add to their application in gold mining. Our goal is to support more miners in the Americas in their efforts to optimise production processes, minimise costs and carry out responsible business practices.

“We are pleased to see that gold miners in the region are enthusiastic about introducing innovative technologies to improve their performance. We believe that this factor will be largely decisive in determining the future competitive positions of players in the gold market.”

This news comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of the company, including expanded concentration ranges now available to cover the entire spectrum from 0.1 to 4,000 parts per million of free cyanide; and successful CE-Certification of the latest CyanoSmart Cyanide analyser.
