Due to the toxic nature of sodium cyanide and strict regulations surrounding its storage and transportation, Cyanco was looking for a logistics partner with significant experience in hazardous materials.
Suttons’ technical department worked closely with Cyanco’s technical team to update an existing tank container solution which features a sparger system designed to dissolve solid sodium cyanide briquettes into a liquid sodium cyanide solution, used at multiple gold mining sites across the world.
George Easterling, Cyanco’s supply chain director, said:
“We have a strong working relationship with Suttons and are highly impressed by their flexible and innovative approach. “
We are committed to safety of not just employees and customers, but the environment as well.
“We maintain strict controls that manage risk and are pleased to have a responsible and solution driven partner in Suttons to work with us to continuously develop our processes and procedures.”
Steve Lonsdale, business unit director, Suttons Americas, said:
“This is another important contract win for Suttons.
“The client was looking for a company with world class safety, security and compliance credentials, plus a proven track record in managing technically challenging solutions on their behalf.
“Suttons had the right blend of knowledge, experience and infrastructure to meet their specific brief.”
