studies of extracting gold from ore

Gold Extraction - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The effect of pH value on gold extraction for various ore types is shown in Figure 28.4. Greatly increasing pH value has a beneficial effect on gold extraction for both oxide and sulfide ores and stabilizes ∼pH 9.5–10.0, whereas for some carbonaceous ores, pH value has no apparent effect. However, the outcome will vary depending on the nature of the gold and background mineral matrix ...

Leaching and recovery of gold from ore in cyanide-free ...

01/11/2020  With cyanide concentration of 0.75 g/L only 80% gold extraction was achieved, which was attributed to gold telluride minerals in the ore, which lead to categorize the studied gold ore as a mildly refractory. This is actually lower than the gold extraction with cyanide-free glycine leaching (90%). These findings, together with the low price, high recyclability and non-toxicity of glycine ...

The Chlorination of Gold Ores.

The Chlorination of Gold Ores. By Mr. Donald Clark, M.M.E., B.C.E. The ideal method for extracting fine gold would be to dis-solve out the gold with some solvent which would not attack other minerals present. The solvents known 6o years ago were chlorine, bromine, and cyanide of potassium. Yet in spite of this knowledge it was only comparatively recently that such solvents were successfully ...

STUDIES IN THE PROCESSING OF A CARBONACEOUS GOLD ORE

part is devoted to a detailed mineralogical study of Prestea carbonaceous gold ore. The results showed that the refractoriness of the ore is due to the presence of active carbon and sulphide minerals which comprise mainly pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, tetrahedrite, and sphalerite. The native gold is alloyed predominantly with silver and occurs in various forms and sizes ranging from ...

Extraction of Gold from a Low-Grade Double Refractory

The gold extraction of this ore by all-sliming cyanidation was only 11.75%. Hence, a pretreatment was necessary. In this paper, a flotation-preoxidation-cyanide leaching process was developed. The concentrate from the flotation procedure was processed using different preoxidation methods. A concentrate containing 34.08g/t of gold with the gold recovery ratio of 81.20% was obtained by

Extraction of Gold

The ore is reduced to a fine state of division and amalgamated simultaneously in a stamp-mill, the solid gold-amalgam separated from the liquid mercury by filtration through leather under pressure, and the mercury distilled. Complete extraction of the gold by amalgamation is impossible, a part remaining in the mud of the stamp- mills. Concentration is effected by washing, and the " concentrates " are

Extraction of gold using cyanide

Extraction of gold using cyanide Gold is found in very low concentrations in the ore from which it is mined. To collect the gold from the ore it needs to be separated from the other minerals in the ore. To do this the gold needs to be made into a soluble form so that it can be separated from the other minerals as gold is insoluble. To make gold soluble sodium cyanide (NaCN) is added and the ...
