  • Silver

    Silver is unpredictable in the way it behaves. The multiple forms of silver make cyanide leaching more complex than gold leaching. Intricate leaching chemistry kinetics to liberate silver from unwanted material must be specifically tailored to each new ore deposit.

    The bubbles float to the top, and the gold is skimmed off. Cyanidation also involves using chemicals to separate the gold from its contaminants. In this process, the ground ore is placed in a tank containing a weak solution of cyanide. but it also may represent the precipitation of gold (and some silver) on gold nuclei. An argument in favor

  • Cyanidation of gold ores containing copper, silver, lead

    Jul 01, 20101. Introduction 1.1. General. Early studies on the dissolution of gold in cyanide solution in the presence of sulfide minerals have shown that heavy metal components, such as Cu, Fe and Zn, significantly increase the consumption of both cyanide and oxygen (Habashi, 1967, Dai and Jeffrey, 2006).In addition, the sulfide component has been shown to have a strong impact on the gold

    Cyanidation is the primary means of recovery of fine gold and silver. In this process, solutions of sodium or potassium cyanide are brought into contact with an ore, which may or may not have required extensive preparation prior to leaching. Gold and silver are dissolved by cyanide in solutions of high pH in the presence of oxygen. There are three
