CSIRO-ChemCentre Cyanide Chemistry Training Course

Cyanide FlyerThis 2 day training course will provide you with a detailed understanding of cyanide chemistry and hands-on practice on “State of the Art” analysis techniques for Free, WAD and Total cyanide. The training will alternate between short lectures and hands-on analysis and interpretation. A training manual will be provided covering the lecture material, references, analysis examples and worksheets.

What attendees have said about this course:

“Thanks so much for the very informative course that have been offered to us and it really broadened my knowledge in cyanide chemistry. The course was well structured both theoretically and practically however in a limited time frame. I really appreciate the practical side of it. I can now choose which methods are better to use than the others. Or what test works to apply to see if the methods we are using are still ok to use.”

- Roselyn Aisa,  Metallurgist Porgera Joint Venture, Barrick (Niugini) Ltd

“I thought it was very good and useful. Well done for putting it together. The course notes were also very good with the different sections that you supplied, i.e. having the presentation slides, the lab/practical worksheets and the reference material. The test work in the lab was valuable to get a practical feel for the different measurement methods and their strengths/weaknesses. Initially I was wondering whether it’s a good thing to spend such a big percentage of the time in the lab, but it has proven to be valuable.”

- Daniel van der Spuy, Director of Process IQ (supplier of Mintek Cyanoprobe)
