Cyanide Leaching Of Gold - Mine Engineer.Com

Most cyanide leaching is carried out at a alkaline pH of between 10 and 11, depending upon lab testing of individual ores and the optimum leaching/chemical use rates. The cyanide solution strength is also important in leaching gold, with the typical range of solution being in the 0.02% -0.05% NaCN. The gold particle size has a tremendous effect on the time required for dissolution in a cyanide ...

THIOSULPHATE LEACHING – AN ALTERNATIVE TO CYANIDATION

Like cyanide, thiosulphate leaching is an alkaline process (usually operated in the pH 8 to 10 range) so there are no concerns with corrosion and materials used in construction, and the process can be applied to heaps and dumps, or to stirred tanks. The thiosulphate process offers advantages over cyanide leaching in the following situations: • Thiosulphate leaching yields similar gold ...

Conventionally, gold ores are treated with dilute alkaline cyanide solution in the presence of oxygen to solubilize the gold. The dissolved gold is then precipitated by zinc dust treatment. This is the well-known McArthur–Forrest–Merrill Crowe process . Cyanidation is, undoubtedly, still the most important and widespread of the various hydrometallurgical technologies used in the extraction ...

Cyanide Leaching Chemistry Gold Cyanidation

The reactions that take place during the dissolution of gold in cyanide solutions under normal conditions have been fairly definitely established. Most agree that the overall cyanide equation for leaching and cyanidation of gold is as follows: 4 Au + 8 NaCN + O2 + 2 H20 = 4 NaAu(CN)2 + 4 NaOH

What is Gold Cyanidation? (with picture) - wiseGEEK

19/01/2021  Gold cyanidation, also called cyanide leaching, is a process used to extract gold from raw ore taken from the ground. It uses cyanide to dissolve the gold within the rock, which, itself, is not soluble in cyanide. The gold is then drawn out in a liquid form that can be treated to remove the cyanide. Almost 90% of all gold extracted commercially is done so by cyanidation. The process has been ...

4 Reasons and Solutions of Poor Gold Leaching Effect

That is, before the leaching of slurry, oxygen is filled in an alkaline medium while stirring, so that these minerals have enough time to be oxidized and hydrolyzed, so that they can be converted into ferric hydroxide which can't be dissolved by cyanide. And then add cyanide to effectively dissolve the gold. Reason#2: There are minerals such as carbon or graphite in gold ore. Some gold ores ...
