Alkaline cyanide leaching of refractory gold flotation

Aug 01, 2018 Alkaline cyanide leaching is a conventional hydrometallurgical technique that involves selective leaching of gold (Au) from host ores using cyanide, a universal gold ligand, in a stepwise oxidative and complexation manner (Eq. ) (Deschênes, 2016; Menne, 1991; Nicol et al., 1987a).

Cyanide Leaching Of Gold Mine Engineer.Com

Most cyanide leaching is carried out at a alkaline pH of between 10 and 11, depending upon lab testing of individual ores and the optimum leaching/chemical use rates. The cyanide solution strength is also important in leaching gold, with the typical range of solution being in the 0.02% -0.05% NaCN.

What is Gold Cyanidation? (with picture)

Gold cyanidation, also called cyanide leaching, is a process used to extract gold from raw ore taken from the ground. It uses cyanide to dissolve the gold within the rock, which, itself, is not soluble in cyanide. The gold is then drawn out in a liquid form that can be treated to remove the cyanide.
