Oxygen in Gold Mining


It is not an easy task to supply critical gasses such as oxygen to remote mining sites. Costs can be overwhelming if there is a break in oxygen supply and mine production has to be stopped. Having a way to produce oxygen on-site using an oxygen generator or cylinder filling plant (CFP) eliminates this sort of downtime and saves a considerable amount of money. A fully automated gas generating system will pay for itself within a few months.

 Dissolved oxygen slows the leaching rate and thus our oxygen systems improve gold recovery during cyanidation. Higher gold yields are a result of this improved efficiency.

Foxolution’s oxygen generating systems are custom designed to meet your specific mining application. Our oxygen systems are completely containerized or skid-mounted – developed to ensure easy transportation and placement. Maintenance can be done on-site.

Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) is a process used to separate oxygen from the surrounding air – our oxygen generators use this PSA process to generate oxygen on-site – a perfect solution to the gold mining industry’s needs.
