Cyanide Wastewater Treatment in Gold Cyanidation Plant

In gold cyanidation plant, although part of the cyanide wastewater has been returned for reuse, there are still some cyanide wastewater or cyanide residue discharged. Cyanide is highly toxic, so these cyanide wastewater must be treated professionally before discharging to avoid the environment pollution and damage to human and animal health.

Improvements in gold ore cyanidation by pre-oxidation with

As we know, gold cyanide leaching is an electrochemical process that involved the anodic dissolution of gold and cathodic reduction of oxygen and other oxidants [4][5][6].

Gold processing Mining and concentrating Britannica

In cyanidation, metallic gold is oxidized and dissolved in an alkaline cyanide solution. The oxidant employed is atmospheric oxygen, which, in the presence of an aqueous solution of sodium cyanide, causes the dissolution of gold and the formation of sodium cyanoaurite and sodium hydroxide, according to the so-called Elsner reaction:

Gold Leaching Cyanide Decontamination Gold Cyanidation

The use of oxygen compounds instead of air as an oxidant increases the leach rate and decreases cyanide consumption. This increase in the dissolved oxygen level of gold bearing slurry enhances the gold cyanidation process, thereby increasing gold recovery rates. Cyanide is the second highest operating cost behind electric power for the ore

Cyanide and Other Lixiviant Leaching Systems for Gold with

Jun 10, 2010· All systems require an oxidant to oxidise gold and a ligand to complex with gold in solution. Adjustment of pH is usually necessary. Alkaline lixiviant systems (pH > 10)include cyanide, ammonia-cyanide, ammonia, sulphide, nitriles, and a few other minor possibilities. Oxygen is the main oxidant.

GOLD RECOVERY OF REFRACTORY SULFIDE CONCENTRATES

The problem of refractory sulfide gold ore that has a gold recovery less than 50% when direct cyanidation applied, still exists until now. It needs oxidative pretreatment for cyanidation to be effective in gold recovery the objective of this study is figuring out the effect of sodium nitrite as an oxidizing reagent on cyanidation of refractory gold ore.

GOLD RECOVERY OF REFRACTORY SULFIDE CONCENTRATES

reagent on cyanidation of refractory gold ore. Cyanide leaching of the concentrate was performed at 20%-w/w of solid (500 gram of refractory sulfide gold ore concentrate) in a 2.5-liter glass reactor with aeration and stirred at 250 rpm. Leach solutions were prepared using deionized-distilled water at the prescribed concentration of reagents.

The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching An Introduction

Oct 20, 2014· Cyanidation is used for gold that is distributed finely through a mineral matrix. Liberation: Cyanide leaching will only be effective if the cyanide can come in contact with the gold particle. For this to happen, the ore should either be sufficiently porous for cyanide to reach the gold, or more usually the ore is crushed and ground to a size

Bacterial oxidation Wikipedia

Bacteria biooxidation is an oxidation process caused by microbes where the valuable metal remains (but becomes enriched) in the solid phase. In this process, the metal remains in the solid phase and the liquid can be discarded. Bacterial oxidation is a biohydrometallurgical process developed for pre-cyanidation treatment of refractory gold ores or concentrates.

with gold solubilized as a cationic complex. Cyanide extracts gold in an alkaline medium, and although no oxidant other than air from agitation is generally applied, addition of an oxidant may be beneficial (4).

The role of oxygen in cyanide leaching of gold ore

The cyanidetion at high pH is favourable for the oxidation of Au° with a mild oxidant such as air or oxygen. Beside oxidation of gold, deleterious effects of soluble sulphides, arsenates, antimonates on cyanidation of gold can be alleviated by preaerating the leach slurry with air or oxygen (i.e. preaeration process).If gold is refractory due
