Jun 22, 2020 Reason 3 There are cyanide-consuming minerals such as copper and zinc in gold ore. Some gold ores are accompanied by copper and zinc minerals, such as malachite, azurite, pyrocopper and sphalerite (especially oxidized sphalerite), etc., which have high solubility in cyanide solution. While leaching gold, they will “compete” with gold for.
The application of ammonium thiosulfate for the treatment of copper-gold ores has been investigated. Leaching studies were conducted with copper minerals, copper minerals with gold addition to solution and copper-gold samples of different copper and gold grades. The behaviour of thiosulfate, tetrathionate and sulfate in solution was studied using ion chromatography. The copper sulfide.
Leaching Stubborn Oxidized Gold Ores That Contain Copper
Ammonium thiosulfate is a noncyanide lixiviant for gold leaching. However, the major problem with this leaching method has been the high consumption of reagents. To leach a mild refractory copper bearing gold ore, the authors used abination of 0.3M NH 4 2 S 2.
Oct 20, 2014 The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching – An Introduction. Leaching gold with a cyanide solution remains the most widely used hydrometallurgical process for the extraction of gold from ores and concentrates. Despite the difficulties and hazards of working with cyanide, no other process has yet been proven to be an economic viable alternative.
Ammoniacal Thiosulphate Leaching Of A Copper
Mar 15, 2019 The cyanidation method uses an aqueous solution of an alkali metal cyanide as a solvent to leach gold, and then extracts gold from pregnant solution by using a zinc powder replacement device, carbon in pulp, or carbon in leaching method. Cyanide is an essential gold recovery chemical for cyanidation. Commonly used cyanide agents are NaCN, KCN.
Nov 01, 2001 Thiosulfate offers a nontoxic alternative to cyanide for processing gold ores. The mechanism of leaching gold using ammoniacal thiosulfate solution is driven by the Cu(II)-Cu(I) redox couple and is complicated by competing ligands such as NH 3 and S 2 O 3 2−.It is shown that an understanding of the copper speciation and sulfur speciation is required to optimize this system.
[pdf] Gold Leaching By Copper(ii) In Ammoniacal
Jan 21, 2016 This article is devoted to the leaching of gold from copper-bearing oxidized stubborn gold ores in the Tarror deposit. The high copper content of the ores makes it difficult to extract gold from them by direct cyanidation. An analysis of the literature data indicated that ammoniacal leaching might be one solution to this problem. It is shown that the use of ammonia compounds in the.
Jun 07, 2018 Thiosulphate is a effective lixiviant of preg-robbing and high-copper ores than cyanide because ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching is.
An Electrochemical Study Of The Copper Gold Cyanide
Jul 18, 2013 Thiosulphate is an attractive alternative reagent to cyanide for processing gold ores. It is relatively cheap and non-toxic, forms relatively strong gold and silver complexes, and readily leaches gold ores in ammoniacal solutions, catalysed by Cu(II). It is particularly suited to carbonaceous ores where the recovery of gold by cyanide is poor.
Key words Ammoniacal thiosulfate leaching, ion flotation, electrolysis. 1. Introduction Gold dissolution by ammoniacal thiosulfate solutions is an alternative process that can handle complicated refractory ores . It is important to mention that thiosulfate ion by itself cannot dissolve gold as fast as cyanide does so aqueous ammonia and.
The Leaching And Adsorption Behaviour Of Gold Ores
Copper Mining Cyanide Gold Leaching. Cyanide Leaching Of Gold From A Synthetic Copper Bearing Ore Containing Djurleite And Bornite. They Observed That The Extraction Of Gold Improved With Increasing DO2 Concentration From 8 Mg L To 20 Mg L. Cu2++4NH 3→Cu(NH3)4 2+ (6) It Can Be Inferred From These Earlier Studies That The Chemistry Of Ammoniacal Cyanide Leaching Is Rather.
Sep 11, 2019 Alkaline sulfur-containing lixiviants, including thiosulfate, polysulfides, and alkaline sulfide solutions, stand out as a promising class of alternatives to cyanide because of their low toxicity, high efficiency, and strong adaptability. In this paper, we summarized the research progress and remaining challenges in gold extraction using these noncyanide reagents.
The Metallurgy Of Cyanide Gold Leaching – An Introduction
In this study, ammoniacal cyanide leaching of gold for the treatment of a copper-rich refractory gold ore was investigated. Ammonia leaching as a pretreatment process ahead of cyanidation was also.
Review Gold leaching by copper(II) in ammoniacal thiosulphate solutions in the presence of additives. Part I A review of the effect of hard–soft and Lewis acid-base properties and interactions of ions.
Thiosulphate As An Alternative To Cyanide For Gold
Gold and copper often occur together in ores, an occurrence which creates processing difficulties since cyanide leach solutions are not selective for gold. Copper contamination can result in serious problems throughout the conventional carbon-inpulp process, often making the operation uneconomic. This thesis describes electrochemical studies of two ways of dealing with copper contamination.

Lurgical gold extraction routes utilize a leaching step to produce a gold-bearing solution as an intermediate product while the recycling of secondary gold from electronic and precious metal scrap is based on the selective and fast dissolu-tion of the precious metal. Therefore, A Method for Leaching or Dissolving Gold from Ores or Precious.
Gold and copper often occur together in ores, an occurence which creates processing difficulties since cyanide solutions are not selective for gold. Although it has been shown that ammoniacal cyanide solutions can leach gold selectively, little practical use has been made of this finding since the mechanism is not yet understood and strategies for optimisation have not been fully developed.
