Sodium Cyanide Import procedures

As a Sodium Cyanide supplier, we assist our clients to comply with export laws from China.

Our End Users and importers are required to provide their "Import permit license" and "End-user Certificate" declaring the specific application. Depending on the jurisdiction the "Import permit license" is usually issued by the ministry of mines, while the miner or importer must provide the “End-user Certificate”.

The licensing process requires 30 days before we can commence the first shipments.

Sodium Cyanide Quality – Chinese Sodium Cyanide Vs. Korean Vs. Australian and other sources

Sodium cyanide itself is a commodity; the molecule is a fungible commodity. Our Sodium Cyanide is EXACTLY as our competitors, whether Korean, Australian, or others.

Whether it is packaged in blue, white, black, or red drums, the quality is identical!

Our End Users

Our sodium cyanide is used for:

-Leaching (tank leaching and heap leaching) ore flotation of base metals (e.g. copper, lead, zinc) and

-In the electroplating and metal (case) hardening industries

Product application

Synonyms:           Glacial acetic acid; Acetic acid solution; acetic acid 50%;  acetic acid, of a concentration of more than 10 per cent, by weight, of acetic acid; Acetic Acid Glacial BP; Natural Acetic Acid; Acetic acid (36%); Acetic acid, food grade; Acetic Acid Glacial; GAA; Acetic Acid, Glacial 

It is a colourless liquid that when undiluted is also called glacial acetic acid. It has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell.

Acetic acid uses:  
Additive in industrial explosives in Mining.

Other uses include use of acetic acid in the production of vinyl acetate monomer,  acetic anhydride and ester production. 


Chemical gassing agents -In the case of emulsion explosives, using Acetic acid can accelerate the gassing process. The chemically gassed emulsions may take 40 – 50 minutes for completion of gassing within the blast holes, particularly when the emulsion is colder.

In cases where acetic acid is used, it is added to the emulsion prior to gassing, the desired amount of acid is mixed in the emulsion, before adding the gasser.

A gassing solution comprising sodium nitrite in water together with the selected enol compound and acetic acid is introduced into the emulsion explosive at the blast hole by entraining the gassing solution into a stream of the emulsion explosive using pumps.

The solution pH is an important parameter in the gassing of emulsion explosives due to the high cost associated with acid addition therefore a pH value should preferably be maintained at 4.1 or below.

4.Environmental impact


-       Acetic acid biodegrades readily under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions.

 -        Acetic acid does not absorb light with wavelengths >290 nm(4), and is not expected to be susceptible to direct photolysis by sunlight(SRC).

-        Incase of spillage neutralize spill with soda ash or lime.
