leaching, figure the extraction. This is substantially the method of testing a gold ore for treatment with a cyanide solution. This is the method that was used in this case for testing the possibility of leaching the copper tailings. The ore used,was a low grade copper tailing. The are is highly si1icous, which fact is favorable to

Cyanide, in the form of a very dilute sodium cyanide solution, is used to dissolve and separate gold from ore. Cyanide leaching is considered to be a much safer alternative to extraction with liquid mercury, which was previously the
Introduction Cyanide is the wide-spread leaching reagent for the recovery of precious metals, as it is cheap, well established and efficient for gold extraction. Considerable attention has been given to alternative leachants since the beginning of the 1980& 39;s.
1. Introduction. Cyanide has been used for gold extraction for over 100 years and is the default lixiviant in the gold industry. It is cheap and effective for gold dissolution, producing a highly stable gold-cyanide complex which is easily recovered from solution by adsorption onto activated carbon.
A Look at Chemical Degradation vs. Biodegradation of Cyanide and Metal-Complexed Cyanides Found in Industrial Wastewater Generated by the Mining Industry Jason E. Carroll Abstract The mining industry has been using cyanide in their metal recovery processes for over 100 years.
A method for extraction a metal from a mineral ore including a refractory ore contained in a metal. The method includes concentration of refractory ore followed by micronization of the concentrate until gold is liberated by the extraction solution and mixing of micronized concentrate with concentration rejects or by-products to facilitate recovery of the treatment solution.
The grade of gold ore is 3 ppm. Also, cyanide leaching is used to process gold in the Aghdareh mine . The main problem in extraction is achieving an acceptable separation of Au from its ore. Thus, the effects of the main controllable parameters affecting gold recovery are evaluated, discussed and optimized.
