“The Carbon Scout is a safe, user friendly and effective means of obtaining regular and accurate measurement data from the CIL circuit.” – Chris Hitchen Evolution Mining | Optimisation Superintendent


Features Carbon Scout

The Carbon Scout is a self-contained, ground-level sampling system that measures the carbon concentration in CIL and carbon-in-pulp circuits to an accuracy of ±0.5 grams of carbon per litre of pulp. The unit also provides other operating data important to the leaching process including slurry density, pH, Dissolved oxygen (DO) and most recently the measurement of gold loading on carbon. Data profiles are provided from every leach tank, every hour.

The Carbon Scout was developed in conjunction with Dr Teresa McGrath MAusIMM and Adjunct Professor Bill Staunton FAusIMM from Curtin University. Gekko Systems has licensed the technology from Curtin and is responsible for manufacturing, sales, ongoing development/capability, and aftermarket support of the Carbon Scout.
