In the gold cyaniding process, leaching agitation tank is applied to leach and carbon-absorb ore pulps whose fineness is -200 meshes and whose density is less than 45. Under similar circumstances, it is also applied to agitation and leaching in metallurgy, chemical and light industry.
leaching. Basically gold and silver leaching involves spraying a cyanide so- lution on the ore to dissolve the metal values, collecting the solution contain- ing the dissolved metals, and recovering the metal from the solution. By elimi- nating milling, leaching reduces capital cost and startup time for new operations.
The traditional gold leaching method is cyanidation, which carries serious security and environmental problems. More and more attention is paid to the research on non-cyanide process. A high-arsenic-and-sulphur refractory gold concentrate in Sichuan was taken as the object of study. After the roasting-oxidation pretreatment of the sample, potassium ferricyanide was adopted to carry on the process
On the other hand, gold attacked through ore porosity, like in heap leaching, exhibits slow dissolution kinetics. Figure 1 shows four different classes of gold, each one having a different leaching behaviour. One can see that gold can be totally liberated, accessible at the ore surface or through pores.
It is clear that the distribution of leachable gold in the calcine reached up to 93.84. Afterwards, the cyanidation of the mixture residue, the gold leaching ratio could increase substantially to 93.6. The improved process flowsheet of leaching gold from the calcine is recommended as presented in Figure 5. Based on the different predominant encapsulation phase of gold in different size fractions of the
Heap leaching of gold and silver ores is conducted at approximately 120 mines worldwide. Heap leaching is one of several alternative process methods for treating precious metal ores, and is selected primarily to take advantage of its low capital cost relative to other methods.
Gold is mainly extracted from its ores or concentrates by leaching with oxygenated cyanide solutions 1, 2 . Cyanide consumption during leaching, and the discharge of excess cyanide in wastewater, respectively constitute major economic 3, 4 and environmental 5 costs in the gold industry.
Oct 06, 2020 A cyanide leaching circuit usually consists of large agitated tanks for mixing mineral slurry with cyanide in order to extract gold. Typically, the slurry consists of 30-40 solids by weight with the solid particles being less than 100 microns 0.1mm in size. Air or oxygen is often bubbled through the slurry to improve the leaching reaction.
