  • Characterization of refractory behaviour of complex gold

    Diagnostic leaching procedure is achieved by selective leaching/destruction of minerals at stages followed by a cyanide leach step to recover gold available/liberated after each stage[1920]. A set of guidelines for the design of a diagnostic leaching experiment were demonstrated by LORENZEN[21]. The procedure can be tailored to the mineralogical composition of the ore examined (Table 1

  • Gold Metallurgy and Leaching Process

    Leaching, often gold, is the process of extracting a soluble constituent from a solid by means of a solvent. In extractive metallurgy, of gold, it is the process of dissolving a certain mineral (or minerals) from an ore or a concentrate, or dissolving certain constituents from materials such as a calcines, mattes, scrap alloys, anodic slimes, etc., to achieve either one or two purposes

    With ores of higher gold content (greater than 20 grams of gold per tonne of ore), cyanidation is accomplished by vat leaching, which involves holding a slurry of ore and solvent in large tanks equipped with agitators. For extracting gold from low grade ores, heap leaching is practiced; huge heaps are sprayed with a dilute solution of sodium cyanide, and this percolates down through the piled
