This carbon is designed to achieve high gold loadings and release them easily. It can be used for carbon in pulp process (CIP), carbon in leach process (CIL). GRC has exceptional abrasion resistance and reduced tendency to plug retention screens in adsorbtion tanks. Platelets can end up oriented in the fluid in such a manner that they pass through retention screens resulting in a loss of gold containing carbon. In order to hava a product that has less tendency to plug screens with platelets, GRC is processed through a wedge wire screen and dedusted. Its higher adsorption rate allows less gold losses and more profits whilst its easy recovery leads to lower soluble gold losses.
