Barrick Gold Granny Smith Mine has used Polyeuro 1050H, a protective coating from Australian Urethane Systems to provide long-term protection of steel tanks against chemical and abrasion attack.
POLYEURO 1050H was used in the refurbishment of carbon in leach gold process tanks.It provided superior bond to the substrate and a seamless elastomeric coating to the tank walls, floor and baffles with minimum downtime.
Four years later, the coating has been inspected. Integrity of the coating has been maintained, demonstrating the resistance to chemicals and wear forces typically encountered in the Carbon in Leach process.
The tank can be put back into service, giving the client many more years of trouble-free service.
