Metals Recovery

Calgon Carbon's technologies for metal recovery are the most flexible, robust and accepted in the industry.

Our innovative products are recognized around the world as the most efficient in the recovery of gold, precious, rare earth and base metals, uranium, copper, nickel and zinc from ore, waste and reclaim streams.

For decades, the mining industry has relied on Calgon Carbon’s granular activated carbon (GAC) to recover gold and other precious metals, and on its continuous ion exchange technology to recover precious, rare earth and base metals from ore, waste and reclaimed streams.

Calgon Carbon’s high-quality GACs are proven to maximize recovery efficiencies by reducing gold loss and minimizing carbon consumption when used for Carbon-in-Leach (CIL), Carbon-in-Pulp (CIP) and Carbon-in-Column (CIC) gold extraction techniques.

When employed for metals recovery in leach and waste streams, our continuous ion exchange systems provide continuous, consistent and high-purity concentrated product. Our engineered systems minimize waste and the use of chemicals and resin. They are regarded as the most flexible and robust in the industry.

Calgon Carbon’s expertise and capabilities provide economical and efficient solutions for a wide variety of metals recovery applications.
