Recovery of Gold in Pyritic Sulfide Ores

Recovery of gold in sulfide ores has fallen into several categories First is froth flotation and second is cyanidation of the ores Using cyanide to recover gold from sulfide ores generally results in 30 to 35 recovery and the best I have heard of is around 50 recovery.

Sulfides Selenides and Tellurides rebellious and

Many sulfide minerals also contain things like copper or antimony that can react with the cyanide preventing the cyanide from leaching out the gold and silver For information on methods to deal with and extract gold silver and base metals from these refractory ores I recommend two pages on this website.

Simultaneous sulfide oxidation and gold dissolution by

15 08 2021  Pyrite and arsenopyrite are known to be the most common gold bearing sulfide minerals in refractory gold ores Traditionally these minerals have been first oxidized by roasting acidic pressure oxidation or bio oxidation to release gold after which the gold is dissolved in the subsequent cyanide leaching step.

Gold Recovery And How To Choose The Right Process
