Fight for Lucid Waters and Lush Mountains in New Times

--Documentary of Guangxi Senhe High Technology Co.,Ltd.'s Development [Repost from China Gold Daily]




In southwest China, lies a city--Nanning, which was called Yongzhou in ancient times, with evergreen seasons and high-quality environment and wins a reputation as "green city".


Located in Nanning, Guangxi Senhe High Technology CO., LTD.(hereinafter referred to as Senhe High-Tech) has a similar graceful spirit with the city, regards the promotion and application of environment-friendly gold metallurgy agent as its mission and contribute its efforts to building a beautiful China.

In recent years, as adjustment of national environmental protection policies and reduction of quality mine resources, Chinese gold mine enterprises face growing environmental protection and operation pressures. How to effectively extract gold resources and ensure a friendly environment at the same time becomes a must-to-consider question of the industry's healthy development.


Against this backdrop, environment-friendly gold dressing agent gradually becomes accepted by major gold mine enterprises. Then, Jinchan® environment-friendly gold dressing agent developed by Senhe High-Tech becomes a common choice for the public. Jinchan® environment-friendly gold dressing agent is the first high-tech product in the world that completely takes the place of sodium cyanide in the use of gold metallurgy. It is the patent product of "gold metallurgy" and also the most mature and widely-applied environment-friendly gold metallurgy agent.


This year marks the 40th anniversary of Reform and Opening up and the 60th anniversary of establishment of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Over these years, people of all ethnic groups in Guangxi build a beautiful and prosperous Guangxi, with the ecological civilization specially enhanced, and open up a road of green development with Guangxi characteristics, high-quality industry, well-off citizens, beautiful environment and happy people.

Senhe High-Tech is originated from a high technology enterprise in Nanning. It contributes to building the gold brand of Guangxi's lucid water and lush mountains through its "green mission" and strives for the green development of gold industry.


A new blood emerged from Guangxi


Established in 2011, Senhe High-Tech is a new blood in the industry. However, for only a few years, the young company has received good reputation and acceptance from both inside and outside the gold industry. By far, customers of Senhe High-Tech include domestic major gold enterprises like China National Gold Mine Group, Shandong Gold Group, Zijin Mining Group, Zhaoyuan Gold Group and Lingbao Gold and its products have been exported to Southeast Asia, Africa, America, continental Asia and continental Europe and other foreign mine areas.


In the past, Guangxi Tianlin Gaolong Gold Mining Industry Co.,Ltd. of China National Gold Mine Group used sodium cyanide to extract gold. Faced with pressures on environmental protection, it began to apply Jinchan® environment-friendly gold dressing agent since 2015 and has obtained good economic benefits and environment benefits. Xiao Guosen, the former general manager of the company, spoke highly of Senhe High-tech, "They did very well."


Zhang Yongtao, deputy director of China Gold Association, also appreciated Jinchan agent, he stated: "Compared with the pure sodium cyanide, the Jinchan product's effect is good and contributes to environmental protection, especially the later period in dressing process."


Que Shandong, president of Senhe High-Tech, told the reporter, there are 6 important issues that should be enlisted into the history of Senhe High-Tech:


In April 2011, Jinchan® environment-friendly gold dressing agent came to its appearance officially; In August 2012, the company obtains the patent grant of Jinchan environment-friendly gold dressing agent; In November 2012, Mingyang production base covering 100 Mu went into operation; In August 2013, the company was awarded National High Technology Enterprise; In August 2015, the company went to new OTC market, the stock code is 833291; In September 2017, the company finished A-round financing at RMB 450 million valuation.


The historical development of Senhe High-Tech is engraved into these records.


Due to the solid work, over 7 years, Senhe High-Tech grows from a small company. It not only obtained favor of capital market, but also wins vigorous support and acceptance of government. Its achievement includes certificate of scientific and technological achievements, First Prize of Nanning Technology Innovation Award, Technology Innovation Fund for Nanning Middle and Small Technological Enterprise, 2014 Investment Prize for Major Industrial Technology Reform Projects, Nanning Scientific Research and Technological Development Plan, Guangxi Scientific Research and Technological Development Plan, 2015 Quality Industry Award and Listing Award of Nanning Economic Development Zone, 2017 Special Fund for Industry and Information Development in Autonomous Region, and Nanning Technology Enterprise Certification Center. It has been rewarded as Excellent Service Provider in Chinese Gold Industry for two successive years(2016-2018).


These achievements mainly rely on an excellent team fostered by Senhe High-Tech.


Que Shandong stated that Senhe High-Tech maintains people first, attaches great importance at staff cultivation and advocates team work. "Employees are the most significant assets to enterprise's development. Our company focuses on each employ's development and career plan and builds up highly efficient and quality teams."


By far, the company has completed the construction of production base at the first session, established R&D center with strong technological strength and workshop covering 20,000 square meters with perfect production and restoration functions, and appointed a dozen of senior developers. It conducts close cooperation with universities at home and abroad to carry out technological research on major scientific and research projects and reserves solid strength for upgrading and R&D of technology.

A new star is rising vigorously!


Lighten the future of gold mining industry with green technology


In August1, 2016, the new National Dangerous Waste List stipulates that "the cyanided tailings generated during gold dressing process with cyanide" are dangerous waste. Environmental Protection Tax Law of the People's Republic of China, executed from January 1, 2018, stipulates that environmental protection tax shall be collected on dangerous waste at 1,000 Yuan/ton. Suddenly, the gold enterprises applying cyanide face the watershed of life and death.


Gold metallurgy process with cyanide has a long history of over 100 years and dominates the global gold industry due to its simple process and high recovery rate of gold. The majority of domestic gold mining enterprises and smelting enterprises depended on the use of cyanide. According to statistics, over 85% of Chinese finished gold production enterprises adopt gold dressing process with cyanide, which generates about 100 million tons of cyanide residue annually in China.


Technical Specification of Cyanide Residue Pollution Control in Gold Industry issued in March22, 2018 gave a chance of breath to gold enterprises. To develop a non-cyanide or low cyanide process turns to be a major trend of the industry and creating an agent to replace sodium cyanide is one of the important choices.


"I have worked in the gold mining industry for many years and I understand the danger in purchasing, transporting, managing and using sodium cyanide and the harm of sodium cyanide to environment." Que Shandong comprehends clearly the operation situation of the industry, that's why he coordinates with several senior experts in the industry to develop the innovative environment-friendly gold dressing agent to replace poisonous sodium cyanide.


At that year, Que Shandong bore idealism and walked out a totally different path. However, the reality could hardly live up to the ideal. At first, the R&D process of Que Shandong and his counterparts went through countless hardships.


In 2006, they built up a relatively complete laboratory on a leased place, purchased various chemical materials and experimental facilities and began to develop and test low-poisonous and environment-friendly gold dressing agent. After repeated tests and improvements for a long time, they finally worked out the environment-friendly dressing agent at initial stage. They were excited and delivered the research findings to some private mines in Guangxi for trials, and kept improving the product parameters according to feedbacks.


During this period, they often communicated and discussed with their counterparts in Guangxi Metallurgical Institute and Beijing Guohuan Tsinghua Environment Institute and followed up with information of relevant sectors at home and abroad. At later period, they conducted trial production and provided for users for trials.


Constant repetition and failures did not hit their resolution. After practical production and technological improvement for 3-4 years, they finally submitted application of patent for invention to National Intellectual Property Administrationin November22,2010 .


"Our environment-friendly gold dressing agent has filled up the gap in environment-friendly gold metallurgy sector at home and abroad. For 7-year market development, our product has by far stimulated certain reputation and fame in gold production sector, with broad market both at home and abroad." Speaking of present achievement, Que Shandong is pretty proud.


As far as the reporter knows, Jinchan® environment-friendly gold dressing agent can directly replace sodium cyanide in the production process of gold oxidized ore, original mine, sulfuric acid residue, gold powder and anode slime without modifying the original process and facility of "cyanide metallurgy". The leaching rate of gold is close to that of sodium cyanide and Jinchan's stability is higher than that of traditional environment-friendly gold leaching agent such as thiourea and lime sulphur. These advantages are effective solution on present gold enterprises' mission as "lucid water and lush mountains and assets are both important".


Meanwhile, another advantage of Jinchan environment-friendly gold dressing agent lies in the certification conducted by testing center of Shanghai Chemical Institute and Guangzhou Analysis and Testing Center, which has certified that Jinchan belongs to ordinary good. As a result, the dangerous elements in gold dressing process will be reduced greatly and the product will become the "anchor of stability" of gold safety production.


The future is waiting for them


For a period of time, the gold mining industry caused huge waste and damage to resources and the environment pollution in mines grew seriously due to extensive exploitation pattern. Employment of sodium cyanide in gold metallurgy process and cyanide residues discharged test the wisdom and ecological responsibility of people work in this industry.


The General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized at National Ecological and Environmental Protection Conference that the nation shall integrate the economic and social development with ecological civilization development, fully make use the solid material basis stimulated by reform and opening up for 40 years, strengthen to push forward ecological civilization construction, resolve ecological and environmental problems, resolutely carry out pollution control battle and boost national ecological civilization construction.


Both the nation's resolution to strive for ecological civilization and the future development of the industry requires gold mining industry to select better gold metallurgy process.


People inside the industry hold that new times demand quality development. We should take initiatives to transform the "risks" into "opportunities", carry on process innovation, realize low cyanide, few cyanide and even non-cyanide through improvement on gold metallurgy process and completely remove gold industry's reliance on cyanide process.


While Senhe High-Tech's Jinchan® environment-friendly gold dressing agent conforms to the requirement of new times. Que Shandong maintains that the wide application of environmental protection products shall conform to the major trend as "clean production with stricter environmental protection" in China and World\s industrial sectors.


This year marks the 60th anniversary of establishment of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Over 60 years, Guangxi has broken through the constraint of rigid ideas and obstacles of old systems, composed a chapter of new times and converged new driver of development.


As a high technology enterprise emerging from Guangxi, Senhe High-Tech inherits the perseverance and bears a big goal: To become the largest global high technology enterprise specialized in R&D, production and sales of environment-friendly gold dressing agent.


To achieve the goal, Senhe High-Tech will keep investing in R&D, reserve new technology, realize upgrading of products, improve products property, enrich products variety, better satisfy customers demand, quickly occupy the market at home and abroad, and achieve the company's rapid growth and grand goal.

The goal signifies Senhe High-Tech's strength.


According to Que Shandong, as a major scientific technology investment project in Guangxi province, the company invests 230 million Yuan in production project of Jinchan gold dressing agent covering 100 Mu with 10 tons annual output in Guangxi Mingyang industrial region. So far, the company has successfully completed the construction of production base at second session. "We will remain true to our original aspiration and provide assistance in achieving gold production enterprises' healthy and sustainable development with quality products and services and contribute to Guangxi's economic development." Que Shandong said.


The immense sea allows fish to leap at liberty, the vast sky lets birds fly freely. The future is waiting for rapid development of Senhe High-tech.
