Figure 12 below shows Cyanide usage, and where available, the impact of the ReCYN™ process on cyanide purchase requirements. The redesigned phases allowed Prober to economically include higher CuCN/SXS material at end of mine life, thereby deferring high Cyanide usage ore until later in the mine life. This is a good indicator that the phases and schedule are working well together.
