In this AMIRA project (P479A) a rigorous comparative evaluation of all available methods for cyanide analysis has been carried out.

Methods recommended were those that proved reasonably robust and had a data-output with validity across a wide range of different matrices, and these were recommended as best practice.

A series of conceptual models of how cyanide behaves in tailings structures is also presented.
