The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching – An Introduction ...

Oct 20, 2014 · Liberation: Cyanide leaching will only be effective if the cyanide can come in contact with the gold particle. For this to happen, the ore should either be sufficiently porous for cyanide to reach the gold, or more usually the ore is crushed and ground to a size at which the surface of the gold is exposed – i.e. the gold is liberated.

Cyanide Gold Leaching

Many mining companies are unwilling to treat and/or impound their wastes in a responsible manner. Alternative leaching methods are available but may be more costly to implement. With gold mining the cost of processing with alternative leaching agents should not be an issue. I disagree that cyanide is the safest leaching agent.

Cyanide Gold Leaching with Copper Present ...

Me too was currently in a study how to maximize the recovery of gold in a gold-copper ore and tailing. I tested already using sulfuric acid leaching, ammonia bicarbonate leaching and ammonia sulfate leaching. Base from my own observation ammonia bicarbonate is good for a oxide ore or tailing and ammonium sulfate for sulfide one.

Hydrometallurgy

Hydrometallurgy is a method for obtaining metals from their ores. It is a technique within the field of extractive metallurgy involving the use of aqueous chemistry for the recovery of metals from ores, concentrates, and recycled or residual materials. Metal chemical processing techniques that complement hydrometallurgy are pyrometallurgy, vapour metallurgy and molten salt electrometallurgy.

Intensive cyanide Leach

Gold in steel scats is more significant than you might think this Remove the iron AFTER the intensive leach, when the gold has been dissolved. Circuit stability is extremely important and there are many variables we discovered that influence recovery and are not immediately obvious, so get out your buckets, stopwatch and start taking samples.
