Goldcarb 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 to minimize the loss of gold in the circuit particularly due to breakdown of carbon particles, Gold carbons with micropores, intrinsic hardness and excellent attrition resistance manufactured to have very low platelet and soft particle content and superior adsorption kinetics with very high gold adsorption rates and capacities.
