Cyanide Leaching Of Gold Mine

Once the gold has been dissolved in the cyanide, and the ore body has been reasonably depleted of its gold, there are two main processes for recovering the gold from the pregnant cyanide solution. One is the Merrill Crowe zinc precipitation process and the other is the adsorption of the gold onto activated carbon. The oldest method, Merrill Crowe, involves first removing the oxygen from the

The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching An Introduction

20/10/2014· Nature of Gold: The surface of a gold particle will typically be dissolved at a rate of around 0.2 0.5 µm of surface depth per hour in a cyanide leach. For large gold particles and nuggets, this is too slow to be fully dissolved in a typical processing plant. Much simpler and less expensive gravity methods are available to recover this gold.

Gold Cyanidation

Cyanide can be used to extract gold, either in a controlled mill environment, or more crudely on rock piles in the open. Cyanide vat leaching mixes finely crushed ore with a cyanide salt in water. The cyanide binds to the gold ions, and makes them soluble in water, thereby allowing separation from the rock. This process usually takes place inside a mill or other mining facility.
