Gold and silver mines are often located in pristine environments that are highly susceptible to pollution by mining and metals recovery activities. While biotechnologies have been developed for freeing precious metals from refractory ores, cyanidation is still the process of choice for extracting gold and silver values.

Cyanide Leaching Chemistry & Gold Cyanidation

06-02-2015 · Cyanide Leaching Chemistry. In a relatively simple system of this type the gold dissolves readily. The only requirements are that the gold be free and clean, that the cyanide solution contain no impurities that might inhibit the reaction, and that an adequate supply of oxygen be present in the solution throughout the reaction period.

Gold and Silver Leaching by Cyanidation

18-04-2016 · Introduction to Gold and Silver Leaching. The cyanide leaching process is the most important method ever developed for extracting gold from its ores. The early development of the process is attributed to a Scotchman, John Stewart Mac Arthur, in collaboration with the Forrest brothers. The method was introduced into South Africa in 1890.

Answers. In the cyanide process for extraction of gold and silver from ores, the cyanide solution acts as a: (A) Reducing agent to reduce the gold and silver compounds in the ores into metallic states. (B) Leaching agent to bring the gold and silver into the solution as cyanide complexes and thus separate these metals from the ores.

[PDF] THE INFLUENCE OF PRE-AERATION ON CYANIDE

The leaching behaviour of a sulphide gold-silver ore was investigated in terms of a relationship between gold and silver extractions and cyanide consumption. Ninity five Au % and 88.0% Ag extractions were obtained under the determined conditions of 24 h leaching duration, -74 µm particle size, 40% solids ratio, 4 g/dm 3 NaCN concentration, and 450 rpm stirring speed with

The silver ore is crushed, concentrated and then leached with sodium cyanide $\left( {{\text{NaCN}}} \right)$ solution. The roasted ore of silver is leached using a solution of sodium cyanide. We know that the process in which the valuable metals are converted to their soluble salts and the impurities remain insoluble is known as leaching.

New Alternative To Cyanidation: Biocatalyzed Bisulfide ...

This paper describes progress in development of an alternative to cyanidation, bisulfide leaching, for extracting gold, silver from refractory ores and concentrates. While bisulfide leaching can be implemented abiolically, significant benefits accrue from its practice as a bioprocess integrating precious-metals liberation and extraction steps.
