Cyanide- and Mercury-free Alternative Reagents Hinder Market Growth

The sodium cyanide market for mining industry is expected to progress at a modest CAGR of ~4% throughout the assessment period, as the upfront cost of installing the infrastructure of a processing plant that uses cyanide typically requires several million dollars. Environmental and safety concerns have always been barriers to market growth. Moreover, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) has newly introduced a cyanide- and mercury-free alternative reagent known as thiosulfate, which is contributing toward a cost-effective and environment-friendly gold recovery process. Hence, companies in the sodium cyanide market for mining industry should increase their involvement with the ICMI to support safe and efficient use of cyanide.
