Cyanco Signs Accord with Ascend Performance Materials to Construct Sodium Cyanide Plant

Cyanco, a supplier of sodium cyanide to the mining industry in Canada and the United States, has signed an accord with Ascend Performance Materials, a company that provides patented technologies for use in the manufacture of synthetic fiber, plastics and nylon, to build a plant at Alvin, a Texas site owned by Ascend. The new plant will manufacture 55,000 metric tons of sodium cyanide every year.

Both Cyanco and Ascend have entered into a long-term accord to enable Ascend to provide hydrogen cyanide, services and utilities for the proposed plant. Cyanco has applied for the necessary environmental clearances for the project and continued with the engineering requirements of the project. The proposed plant will manufacture solid sodium cyanide briquettes and will also have the provision to pack the product in ISO containers, hopper cars, one metric ton composite packaging and one metric ton boxes/bag.

Cyanco's President and CEO, John Burrows, stated that on completion of the Cyanco plant, it will produce over 125,000 metric tons of sodium cyanide every year. Cyanco will serve the demands of the mining industry by utilizing its terminal in Quebec and two plants in Nevada.
