Customer Advantages

AGR supplies high quality Solid Sodium Cyanide in briquette form both nationally and globally.

Freight advantages

Receiving Solid Sodium Cyanide in bulk form provides an economical transport solution and can enhance the long-haul supply chain model.

Employee safety

Receiving Solid Sodium Cyanide in briquette form ensures mine site personnel are not exposed to cyanide dust.

Efficient transport and storage solutions

IBCs (boxes) used to transport Solid Sodium Cyanide can be disposed of upon receival, ensuring a one-way supply chain to help reduce freight costs.

Intermediate Bulk Containers

Solid Sodium Cyanide briquettes are packed in one-tonne IBCs for storage and transport.

Each IBC consists of a waterproof polyethylene bag that has been heat-sealed to provide a moisture barrier. This is enclosed in a woven polypropylene bag that is encased in a custom-designed, strong wooden box on a pallet base to provide further protection during storage and transit.

Our proven IBC packaging system complies with the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code and the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods. Testing, including stack tests and bottom lift tests, ensures IBCs meet United Nations recommendations for the transportation of dangerous goods.

For the export market, IBCs are packed and transported in 20-foot sea containers. Prior to leaving our production facilities, each sea container is identified with a security seal and unique identity number for tracking purposes and to prevent tampering during transit.

Reliable, secure supply

We continually communicate with customers and supply chain stakeholders to ensure the reliable and secure supply of our products, and work closely with each customer to develop specific transport management plans.

Our transport partners must be signatories to the International Cyanide Management Institute Code and we take measures to control risk, including using escort vehicles to accompany trucks transporting Solid Sodium Cyanide, and satellite tracking.

We work with our international customers and transporters to prepare and update transport management plans and provide other support, such as risk identification, assessment and management to establish control practices to facilitate safe transport. We regularly monitor and audit these controls, and support key stakeholders with training.

International road transport configuration varies subject to the regulations of each country. We welcome discussions about local requirements for specific regions, so feel free to get in touch.

Audit and compliance

We audit existing storage facilities and provide advice on mine site storage options that comply with country-specific requirements.

We also assist to develop risk assessments and operating procedures to ensure the safety of site personnel.
