Jul 05, 2015 Cyanide leaching of gold catalysts can remove less active gold. Gold thrifting is thereby enabled for the chosen system investigated. Cyanide leaching may be selective and may help in gold speciation studies. Cyanide leaching leads to a modification of gold oxidation state.
This article presents the results of comparative experiments on the activation chloride and activation carbonate-cyanide leaching of gold from the secondary mineral material of heaps of Aprelkovo mine. A cyanide scheme with a gradual increase in the cyanide concentration in the pregnant solution was adopted as a control scheme for percolation leaching.

Jul 03, 2015 The Cyanide Leaching Process has been the most widely used and most cost effective method of extracting gold from ore since the 1970s. Most open-pit gold mining operations around the world use a heap leaching to extract ores from these types of deposits.
However, during leaching free cyanide decreases and iron, mostly present as FeCN 6 4, can precipitate as FeOOHs thereby decreasing the concentration of iron in solution . It is reported that FeCN 6 3 can also facilitate gold leaching 34,35 but here the concentration of FeCN 6 3 was very low.
The consumption of cyanide during processing operations is a major economic cost in the extraction of gold from its ores, while the discharge of cyanide wastes may result in significant environmental pollution. Many factors influence the levels of consumption and discharge of cyanide, including ore mineralogy and lixiviant solution chemistry.
Experimental results show that not all the total copper in an ore affected cyanide leaching of gold, while cyaniding easily soluble copper turns out to be the decisive factor that interferes with gold cyanidation by causing decrease in gold cyanidation recovery and increase in cyanide consumption. When cyaniding easily soluble copper content ...
A synthetic liquor containing gold, copper, zinc and nickel was used to represent a typical gold-cyanide leach liquor. The free cyanide concentration was 150 ppm and the pH of the feed was maintained at 10.5. Metal loadings were determined by passing a large volume of solution through an adsorbent bed, in a column.
This paper reviews the basic chemistry of cyanide, methods by which cyanide can be analyzed, and aspects of cyanide behavior that are most relevant to environmental considerations at mineral processing operations associated with gold mines. The emphasis is on research results reported since 1999 and on data gathered for a series of U.S. Geological Survey studies that began in the late 1990s.
Sep 01, 2000 A large proportion of the gold processed in the 21 st century will be recovered from sulfide ores. Since the sulfide minerals are to some extent soluble in cyanide solutions, there will always be some sulfur species present in the leach solution.

A reduction in pH from 10.5 to 8 will reduce the cyanide ion concentration from 95 to 5.8. A 16-fold increase in cyanide usage would be required to maintain the leaching rate if aqueous hydrogen cyanide did not contribute. The dissolution of gold is an electrochemical process.
Thiourea is unusual in producing a cationic AuIcomplex, AuNH2CSNH22 and gold dissolution is slower. For treating simple auriferous oxide-silicate-carbonate ores, and many otfier materials, cyanide remains the preferred lixiviant. Most non-cyanide leaching systems appear to have little wide-spread practical application.

from the dissociation of the complex is used to leach gold from the ore. The stepwise dissociation of cyanide from copper-cyanide complexes can also be used to leach gold from a variety of oxide and sulphide ores. The copper cyanides fourth ligand readily dissociates at low cyanide concentrations for use in gold leaching.
leach considerably slower in cyanide Adams, 2000. As a result of cyanide soluble copper in the ore, cyanidation of goldcopper ores results in high cyanide consumptions and difficulty in process control. The gold leaching reaction in cyanide solution follows these electrochemical halfreactions
Precious metals such as gold can be extracted from a refractory ore using a conventional cyanide leaching step and with reduced cyanide consumption by pre-treating the ore prior to cyanide leaching. The refractory ore is pretreated by fine grinding and an initial leaching step which uses inexpensive limestone and lime to maintain the initial leach relatively alkaline.
The gold solution was prepared by mixing gold with a sodium cyanide solution to undergo a leaching process for 24 hours. The solution was then used for the adsorption experiment. The performance of the alkaline-based EFB-AC to separate gold from the cyanide leaching solution was further studied on the effect of contact time, pH and agitation rate.
