Methods of Processing of the Gold-Containing Refractory

The gold-containing refractory sulfide ores of chalcopyrite, pyrite, barite-polymetallic, quartzites, copper-zinc, antimonite were used in the research. As a result of investigation, the optimal conditions of gold leaching by means of thiourea method from the above-mentioned ores and concentrates with 85-90% gold extraction were established.

14-07-2016· Gold Extraction from Carbonaceous Ore. List Gold Refractory Process Methods. Where gold is associated with arsenic, antimony, tellurium, and certain other minerals, it is often only partly soluble in cyanide solution. The difficulty is usually more of a physical than a chemical one but special methods of treatment may be required.

How to Extract Refractory Gold Ore Using Gold Recovery

29-11-2019· Gold recovery cyanide process is widely used. A professional gold recovery industry that handles high-sulfur, high-arsenic, and other refactory gold concentrates, the arsenic grade is about 10%. The high-sulfur and high-arsenic gold concentrate is pretreated by two-stage roasting, and the two-stage roasting sand is leached into the gold recovery cyanide process by sulfuric acid leaching.

Review Pretreatment Process on Refractory Gold Ores with As

1) Arsenic-bearing refractory gold ore has stones extremely difficult to deal with. In the stones, gold is locked up in arsenic mineral matrix as the form of microscopic or submicroscopic lattice. If use conventional cyanidation gold extraction process, the gold leaching rate is very low. Because gold in such ores is very fine particle

Extract copper and gold from low-grade ores FLSmidth

Reduce processing cost for gold and copper extraction Many existing gold refractory operations have low-grade stockpiles that are waiting to be processed at the end of the mine life. By adding Rapid Oxidative Leach® (ROL®) pre-treatment to an existing operation, it can become viable to process these low-grade stockpiles earlier, rather than processing

extraction of refractory gold can only be achieved by employing a pre-oxidation process prior to cyanide leaching. Antimony, bismuth sulfide, and telluride gold ores are often somewhat refractory due to the presence of slow-dissolving gold minerals such as aurostibite (AuSb 2), maldonite (Au 2 Bi), and gold tellurides. Carbonaceous sulfide ores
