AGR Solid to Solution

AGR’s Solid to Solution (STS)  delivers solid sodium cyanide in bulk form (up to 20 metric tonnes) to mine operations by isotainer, which enables secure road, rail and international transportation.

As part of the delivery process, on arriving at a mine site the product is dissolved by pumping water into the isotainer to create a ready-to-use solution, which is then transferred to customer receival and storage facilities.
