This is important, as even where ASM miners may be leased access to cyanidation facilities of some officially permitted large-scale mines, many are frequently reluctant to use cyanidation as they are unable to observe what happens inside the facility of that large-scale mine and therefore do not trust that they will recover the full yield of their gold
