gold extraction using cyanide leaching

Leaching and recovery of gold from ore in cyanide-free ...

2020-11-1  1. Introduction. Currently, cyanide is the predominant lixiviant used to extract gold due to its strong complexation with gold and the technical simplicity of the leaching process (Avraamides, 1982, Habashi, 1987, Marsden and House, 2006).However, the use of cyanide can bring challenges in terms of environmental, health and safety aspects (Aylmore, 2005, Laitos, 2012).

Cyanide hazards to plants and animals from gold mining

Cyanide extraction of gold through milling of high-grade ores and heap leaching of low-grade ores requires cycling of millions of liters of alkaline water containing high concentrations of potentially toxic sodium cyanide (NaCN), free cyanide, and metal-cyanide complexes. Some milling operations result in tailings ponds of 150 ha and larger.

Extraction of gold using cyanide - Home » NZQA

2015-8-24  Extraction of gold using cyanide Gold is found in very low concentrations in the ore from which it is mined. To collect the gold from the ore it needs to be separated from the other minerals in the ore. To do this the gold needs to be made into a soluble form so that it can be separated from the other minerals as gold is insoluble.
