Traditionally, gold was extracted using a highly pollutive and hazardous method using Mercury. Haycarb was a pioneering supplier of Activated Carbon to extraction of gold from ore when the new CIP, CIL methods were developed in the 1970s. The masterful production of technically superior Activated Carbons for gold extraction over 5 decades has made us a dominant and preferred supplier in the industry.
Today’s gold mining operations optimize efficiency and output using superior Haycarb Gold recovery Carbon. Our high-density Carbons with particle-to-particle consistency in activity and shape is an ideal solution for applications in CIL (carbon-in-leach), CIP (Carbon-in-pulp) and CIC (carbon-in-column) processes. In minimizing the loss of Gold in the circuit particularly due to breakdown of Carbon particles, Haycarb provides predominantly microporous coconut shell based Activated Carbons with intrinsic hardness and excellent attrition resistance manufactured to have very low platelet and soft particle content. Our Carbons have superior adsorption kinetics with very high gold adsorption rates and capacities.
Operating through the head office based in Sri Lanka and subsidiaries in strategic locations, Haycarb is an established long-term supplier to large Gold mining companies across the globe.
