Leaching and Recovering Gold from Antimony Minerals Stibnite This mineral in an ore acts as a weak acid, combining with alkalis to form salts, of the order of M1/3SbS2 and M1/3SbS4 alkaline sulphantimonite and sulphantimonate, especially in the presence of iron sulphides, using high concentrations of lime or alkalis.
Leaching and recovery of gold from mildly refractory ore in glycine media was investigated. Temperature and pH have a substantial role in gold dissolution. 90% of gold extracted into the glycine solution after 24 h of leaching. 100% gold recovery from solution could be achieved by carbon adsorption within 4 h.
The glycine permanganate leaching system was applied to each ore. The total permanganate added to each was 3 kg reagent /tonne ore. The gold recovery is similar for ores A and D as that for baseline cyanidation as can be seen in Table 4. For ores B and C, which had higher amounts of sulfide sulfur than A and D, requires further optimisation ...
Refractory Gold Any ore that is not readily amenable to recovery by conventional cyanide leaching at a reasonable grind size can be considered refractory. The three primary factors that cause gold ores to be refractory are: Physical encapsulation Extremely fine particles are locked within an impervious, unreactive mineral.
Fine gold particles can be recovered in other concentration devices such as flotation and/or leaching. SAG mill circuit. Gold Recovery. Gold recovery comprises similar stages to the processing of most ores. First, the valuable minerals are separated from the gangue through concentration.
Cyanidation: It is one of the main methods of gold extracting process. 1 Contact finely ground ore with the solution containing cyanide. 2 Separate solid from the clear solution. 3 Recover gold from the solution with zinc powder by precipitation. Video of cyanide gold process production line.
