Sodium cyanide (NaCN) is a toxic inorganic solid that has a strong affinity for metals. Pharmaceuticals, dyes & pigments, agrochemicals, and metal industries all utilise it as a raw ingredient. Because of its toxicity, it is also utilised as a pesticide and in analytical testing. The International Cyanide Management Code for the Manufacture, Transport, and Use of Cyanide in Gold Production, often known as the Cyanide Code, is a voluntary initiative aimed at assisting the worldwide gold mining sector. It also assists gold mining cyanide producers and transporters in developing cyanide management techniques and publicly demonstrating compliance with the Cyanide Code through an impartial and open procedure.
