Activated carbon plays an important role in mining applications.

Carbon Activated manufactures high quality activated carbon for gold extraction.

Particularly in gold recovery, activated carbon is the key element in CIC, CIL and CIP processes.

As a major manufacturer of activated carbon specialized for the gold mining industry and precious metals recovery, we service some of the world’s largest mining companies.

Mining operations must keep output high despite ever-diminishing supplies of high-quality ore; plants must control operating costs while maintaining environmental responsibility. Profitability can be crucially affected by rates of recovery, plant performance and reliable supply lines.

High-quality activated carbon is vital to the gold extraction operation. Using activated carbon of optimal hardness minimizes fines and recovers more gold.

By maximizing the efficiency of your gold recovery process, Carbon Activated products and services help maintain your bottom line.

Use the best carbon for the best recovery.

The critical test for activated carbon is how well it keeps its properties after months of use and reuse. By using the most durable coconut feedstock, to withstand the rigorous carbonization and activation process, we can consistently manufacture high quality activated carbon for gold extraction.

We manufacture products that are used extensively in Carbon in Column (CIC), Carbon in Pulp (CIP) and Carbon in Leach (CIL) applications.

Our facilities in Sri Lanka and India specialize in producing carbon for the recovery of precious metals using the most effective horizontal rotary kiln activation techniques. Our activated carbon is made from high-quality coconut shells of exceptional carbonaceous hardness. The carbonization and activation process imbues it with properties for longevity during the continuous regeneration of gold recovery circuits. A low rate of attrition during the adsorption circuit is crucial to the gold recovery rate.

Our Gold Standard for carbon

Carbon Activated Corporation’s products meet and surpass gold recovery industry standards. Our modern manufacturing plants provide high-quality activated carbon products for immediate delivery around the world.
