Sodium Cyanide Plant
The Sodium Cyanide plant, located at CSBP Limited’s chemical and fertiliser complex in Kwinana, is a joint venture between Coogee (25% shareholding) and CSBP – a subsidiary of Wesfarmers (75% shareholding). The plant is managed by Australian Gold Reagents Pty Ltd (AGR), and has won a number of engineering excellence awards for its innovative design, and emphasis on safety and efficiency.
Commissioned in 1988, the plant was the first of its kind in Australia. It was established to service the growing gold mining industry in Western Australia, where Sodium Cyanide is used for the extraction of gold. Since this time, the plant has been upgraded and is now capable of producing up to 78,000 tonnes of liquid Sodium Cyanide per annum.
