initial column heap leaching tests were conducted on the clayey gold ore to obtain baseline data for comparison with data obtained from agglomerated feeds. different amounts of cement were added to 50-lb charges of clayey gold ore crushed to a nominal 3/8-in. feed size, but the material was not agglomerated.
thiourea leaching. in order to compare gold dissolution from the ore with and without pretreatment for another lixiviant, the system of thiourea-ferric sulfate was chosen. figure 9 shows the results for gold leaching at sc nh2 2 0 of 0.15 m 11.4 g/l and fe 3 0 of 0.02 m 1.12 g/l and ph 2.

the type of ore being process ed. low grade ores are best processed by heap leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning of copper. any gold present in ore is simultaneously leached with the copper, and then recovered by activated carbon after solvent extraction of copper.
the effect of grinding chemistry on cyanide leaching of gold in the presence of pyrrhotite. cyanide gold leaching is very efficient when ceramic or high chromium media was used during the grinding of the ore. it can be expected that the leach behaviour would be different if leaching is preceded by pre-oxidation, as is often done for
gold cil carbon in leach process is an efficient design of extracting and recovering gold from its ore. by cyaniding and carbon leaching the gold ore slurry simultaneously, cil process lower the gold mining operation cost, and increase gold recovery rate to a ratio of 98%.
and the cnlite eco-friendly gold leaching reagent also has higher leaching efficiency and more efficient leaching rate compared to cyanide in gold mining plant. the biggest advantages of cnlite gold leaching reagent is its low toxicity compared to cyanide, which is good for environment and human. for leaching different kind of gold ore, the
eco-goldex o-series ; the o series it refers to ores is specially formulated and manufactured with the purpose of replacing the toxic sodium cyanide in gold/silver/pgm rock ore leaching. the o series can compete sodium cyanide easily in most rock ore processing including gold leaching rate similar or even better , agent consumption similar or slightly higher and leaching time similar or
gold is dissolved by the cyanide and then removed from the heap or columns. it is then extracted from the pregnant leach solution by adsorption on carbon or resins. this cost-effective, proven method of ore extraction provides maximum recovery for many gold ores, including low grade and some refractory ores.
heap leaching has emerged as the safest and most efficient ways to mine the lower grade gold that was uneconomical in the past. it is a flexible and continuously evolving extraction technology which gained popularity in the 1980s when gold prices rocketed from $35 to $800.
