Bottle Roll Testing for Cyanidation of Gold Ores: Problems

Cyanide leaching of gold is a very common methodology for evaluation of low grade gold ores. Despite risks associated with cyanide, the method proved to be highly effective provided that necessary precautions are taken. Gold cyanidation in field scale is mainly conducted through heap leaching and tank leaching methods.

Gold CIP, CIL System, Heap Leaching, Cyanidation Process

The gold mine pool leaching process has strict requirements on the dosage of cyanide solution; too much is of a waste and too little can't guarantee the leaching effect. When using CNFREE eco-friendly gold leaching reagent, the requirements can be appropriately relaxed in terms of dosage,and the same leaching effect of cyanide can be obtained, which saves cost and reduces environmental pollution.

How Cyanide Leaching is Used in Gold Mining

Jul 03, 2015The Cyanide Leaching Process has been the most widely used and most cost effective method of extracting gold from ore since the 1970's. Most open-pit gold mining operations around the world use a heap leaching to extract ores from these types of deposits.

Environmental Concerns Because cyanide is the lixiviant used in heap leaching of precious metals, there is concern over the potential for release of toxic cyanides into the environment. Because an alkaline pH is1 maintained in the solution, most of the cyanide is present as free cyanide, as required in the leaching reaction.

Gold Cyanidation

Cyanide can be used to extract gold, either in a controlled mill environment, or more crudely on rock piles in the open. Cyanide vat leaching mixes finely crushed ore with a cyanide salt in water. The cyanide binds to the gold ions, and makes them soluble in water, thereby allowing separation from the rock.
