CYANIDE DESTRUCTION - SGS

Most gold plants around the world are required by law to destroy cyanide and metal cyanide complexes in their tailings prior to discharge from the metallurgical site into the natural environment. Many plants destroy the cyanide in a contained area within the metallurgical site, so as to minimize the exposure of wildlife, particularly birds, to these toxic solutions.
