Metallurgy

Metallurgy - Metallurgy - Leaching: Oxides are leached with a sulfuric acid or sodium carbonate solvent, while sulfates can be leached with water or sulfuric acid. Ammonium hydroxide is used for native ores, carbonates, and sulfides, and sodium hydroxide is used for oxides. Cyanide solutions are a solvent for the precious metals, while a sodium

cyanide heap leach process

Cyanide heap leaching is a process for recovering gold and silver by trickling cyanide solutions through lowgrade ore that has been stacked on openair pads (Fig. 1). Cyanide heapleach methods are viewed by industry as offering a lowcost means of producing precious metals.

Extraction of gold using cyanide

This process of leaching is done in leaching tanks or by heap leaching where sodium cyanide is dripped onto a heap of gold ore and left to percolate its way through the heap of gold ore. The dissolved gold in the form of the complex now needs to be separated out and recovered.

I'm afraid that many of our public officials fall in to the latter category.The success of cyanide leaching is attested to by the fact that, for most purposes, it is still the preferred method of gold extraction and by the fact that about 80% of the world production of gold is obtained by this method.

The Current Status of Cyanide Regulations

Cyanide solution can be used for both heap leaching and vat leaching applications. Heap leaching is by far the widest application and the most controversial. Mines contain the cyanide solution by placing multiple "impermeable" liners at the base of heap leaching stockpiles and along the bottom of leachate collection ponds.

The Process

The gold industry, by contrast, has been very successful in heap leaching a wide range of materials using cement agglomeration in an alkaline cyanide system. The ability to agglomerate with cement makes the process far more robust with respect to the physical properties of the ore, and recovery projections from test results are much more reliable.

Cyanide Use in Gold Mining

Heap leaching: In the open, cyanide solution is sprayed over huge heaps of crushed ore spread atop giant collection pads. The cyanide dissolves the gold from the ore into the solution as it trickles through the heap. The pad collects the now metal-impregnated solution which is stripped of gold and resprayed on the heap until the ore is depleted.

Heap Leaching

23-4-2014Heap leaching is an industrial mining process of separating precious metals, copper and other minerals from ores. It involves a series of chemical processes through which the mineral ores are piled in the form of a heap and a leach solution is spread over the ore surface to leach metal from the heap.
