In a method for leaching gold from copper sulfides, the sulfide ores are first subjected to leaching of copper, thereby producing a leaching residue having 7.9% or less of the copper content. This leaching residue is mixed with a leach liquor, which contains the chloride ion and ferric ion and has 1.9 or less of pH.
Gold Leaching Process. Many opportunities exist throughout the world for small cyanide plants, possibly using a Gold Leaching Process, both for production and pilot operations, especially in areas not easily accessible, and where labor and local costs are on a level for profitable operation. Ores not fully amenable to treatment by amalgamation ...
The gold content in the placer gold mine is extremely low, and it is known as the gold panning by beneficiate the placer gold through various energy efficient placer gold equipment. Among various gold extraction methods, the gravity separator method is energy saving, efficient, environmentally friendly, and is suitable for placer gold ore process.
Energy and Environmental Profile of the U.S. Department of Energy leaching, and agitation leaching. Heap leaching and vat leaching account for most gold and silver recovery. These leaching methods are discussed in detail below. 18.104.22.168 Cyanidation Heap Leaching
Cyanidation gold extraction processis a method in which gold is extracted from gold bearing ores using aqueous solution of cyanide as solvent, and then gold is extracted from gold bearing leaching solution. It includes cyanide leaching process and deposition gold extraction process. First, gold in the gold bearing ore reacts with cyanide to form a complex into the solution, and then the gold is removed from the solution to metal by a displacement reaction using reactive metal such as zinc. The reaction equation is: 4Au+8NaCN+2H2O+O2=4Na Au 2 +4NaOH 2 Na Au 2 +Zn=2Au+Na2 Zn 4

The specific steps of cyanidation gold extraction process mainly include: ore39;s preparation stage, leaching stage and metal recovery stage. The preparation stage of ore is an essential process for gold extraction, which is mainly by crushing and grinding the ore to reduce the particle size of the ore. It can ensured that gold is present in the cyanide aqueous solution in the most economical form of recovery, thereby increasing the gold recovery rate. In addition to the crushing and grinding process, gold ore containing sulphide or carbonaceous minerals requires additional treatment prior to recycling. This is because cyanide leaches out sulfide firstly rather than metal, which will cause the consumption of cyanide. To counteract this effect, these ores can first through the flotation process to limit the interaction with cyanide during the leaching process. In addition, it is also possible to change the leaching process by adding activated carbon to preferentially adsorb gold. The c...
The recovery rate of cyanidation gold extraction process is very high. And gold can be produced on the spot, which can avoid the various drawbacks of long distance transportation of gold concentrate, thus conducive to improving the economic benefits of enterprises. 1. The gold extraction process flow lasts long, and the extraction speed is slow. 2. As a highly toxic material, cyanide poses a serious threat to the ecological environment and animal life. Therefore, the slurry waste discharge should be strictly controlled when cyanide is used for gold extraction. In order to avoid the environmental damage caused by cyanide, many mine owners begin to use new low toxic or low toxic leaching agentsfor gold extraction, which can not only replace sodium cyanide without changing the original equipment and cyanidation process, but also can achieve 100% environmental protection.
There is a 270tpd gold and silver cyanidation plant in Japan, in which the metal minerals mainly include native gold, silver, and pyrite. Gangue minerals mainly composed of quartz and calcite. Gold exists mainly in free state in ore. The ore contains 5.0g/t of gold and 20g/t of silver. The plant completely adopts the all sliming cyanidation method, the final gold recovery rate is 97.6%, and the silver recovery rate is 89%. The tailings contain 0.12 g/t of gold and 2.4 g/t of silver.
