The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching An Introduction

Oct 20, 2014· Nature of Gold: The surface of a gold particle will typically be dissolved at a rate of around 0.2-0.5 µm of surface depth per hour in a cyanide leach. For large gold particles and nuggets, this is too slow to be fully dissolved in a typical processing plant. Much simpler and less expensive gravity methods are available to recover this gold.

Since the solid concentration is almost constant during the experiment (at 50%), the liquid and ore gold contents are almost perfectly symmetrical.

Fundamental kinetic models for gold ore cyanide leaching

Existing studies of gold ore cyanidation kinetics demonstrate significant diversity in estimated kinetic parameters. By taking into account the size distribution of gold grains in the ore it was made possible to explain this diversity and the apparent "homogeneous" behaviour of the heterogeneous particles.

Cyanide Leaching Chemistry & Gold Cyanidation

The reactions that take place during the dissolution of gold in cyanide solutions under normal conditions have been fairly definitely established. Most agree that the overall cyanide equation for leaching and cyanidation of gold is as follows: 4 Au + 8 NaCN + O2 + 2 H20 = 4 NaAu(CN)2 + 4 NaOH

A Kinetic and Thermodynamic Modeling Approach

The dissolution kinetics and equilibria of copper, iron and gold species in cyanide solutions are closely related to the concentration of free cyanide, [CN ], and pH. At low free cyanide, low cyanide-to-copper ratios, and high pH, the precipitation of copper as Cu(OH)2 [14] can occur [17]: 4Cu(CN)2 + O 2 + 4OH + 2H 2O !4Cu(OH)2(s) + 8CN (7)
