Lime-Assisted Cyanide Leaching of Refractory Gold Ores ...

The leach experiments were performed using cyanide leaching solutions at pH = 10–11. The results show that the presence of lime greatly increased gold leaching rates. Column leaching experiments show that there was 35.2 % of gold leached without the addition of lime. When 4 % lime was added to gold ores, Au extraction reached 50.56 %. Lime ...

US4559209A - Leaching refractory gold ores - Google Patents

A method is disclosed for leaching a gold ore which is refractory due to the presence of sulphide minerals of arsenic and antimony. The ground ore is leached with cyanide in a pipe reactor at a pressure of between 5 and 8 MPa. The terminal pH value of the pulp is controlled to be 10 or less than 10.

ALTA Gold 2012 E-Doc - Albion Process

Refractory gold ores are those that do not yield high gold recoveries in conventional cyanide-leaching circuits, even when the ore is finely ground. The cause of low gold recoveries can be either through the presence of naturally occurring ‘preg robbing’ carbonaceous materials or gold physically ‘locked’ in sulphide minerals. The ...

Pretreatment Process on Refractory Gold Ores with As

It can dramatically improve gold cyanide leaching rate. Roasting has advantages of mature and reliable technology, simple operation, adaptability, etc.But it is easy to form secondary wrapping to reduce leaching rate of gold in the roasting process, and at the same time produces gases of SO 2 and As 2 O 3 polluting environment seriously. In ores with a high sulphide content this treatment ...

Ultrasound-intensified Leaching of Gold from a Refractory Ore

Cyanide leaching has been applied to separate gold from ore for over 120 years. Gold ores can be classified as free milling, complex, or refractory based on gold recovery achievable by direct cyanidation.1) High gold recoveries from free-milling gold can easily be obtained by conven-tional cyanide leaching.2) Refractory gold ores have the low

The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching – An Introduction ...

Oct 20, 2014  Liberation: Cyanide leaching will only be effective if the cyanide can come in contact with the gold particle. For this to happen, the ore should either be sufficiently porous for cyanide to reach the gold, or more usually the ore is crushed and ground to a size at which the surface of the gold is exposed – i.e. the gold is liberated.

COMPARISON OF CYANIDE AND THIOSULPHATE

Before leaching the gold, ore must be crushed and grinded into small particles, usually particle size varies between 30 and 180 μm. Free milling ores are ready for leaching after crushing and grinding whereas refractory ores need pretreatment. It is important to pretreat a refractory ore before leaching to achieve better gold extraction.

4 Reasons and Solutions of Poor Gold Leaching Effect

Jun 22, 2020  If the gold ore is still difficult to be successfully leached after being finely ground, the gold ore is called refractory gold. Generally, the grade of Au in the tailings is greater than 0.5g/t. The gold in this type of ore, either physically wrapped or chemically combined, cannot be in contact with the cyanide solution, so it is difficult to ...

Apr 01, 2019  The mineralogy of gold ore deposits ranges from free-milling, metal oxide ores, to sulphides. The sulphide ores tend to be refractory to leaching when employing a normal cyanidation process. Recoveries of gold, when employing a normal cyanidation process in the treatment of sulphide ores, tend to be less than 80%.
