Cyanide leaching of gold

Gold cyanide solution leaching gold with cyanide since the 1890s, cyanide has been used to recover gold from gold bearing ores. and today, over 115 years later, most of the worlds gold is recovered with cyanide playing a large part in the beneficiation of the yellow precious metal.

Cyanide leaching | mining

Cyanide leaching processes include vats and column leach. in traditional cyanide leaching, ore is placed in vats or columns. the cyanide solution percolates through the ore and dissolves the gold, which is then removed from the lixiviant by adsorption onto carbon or resins.

Alternatives to cyanide in the gold mining industry

For over 100 years, cyanide has been the leach reagent of choice in gold mining because of its high gold recoveries, robustness and relatively low costs. the environmental damages resulting from its mismanagement, however, have initiated widespread research aimed at identifying and developing less toxic leaching agents.

Gold cyanidation

Cyanide vat leaching mixes finely crushed ore with a cyanide salt in water. the cyanide binds to the gold ions, and makes them soluble in water, thereby allowing separation from the rock. this process usually takes place inside a mill or other mining facility.
