How to Leach Gold Ore With Chlorination Sciencing

Apr 25, 2017 · Gold can be leached from stone through alkaline or acidic-based products, including halogens, such as chlorine, iodine and bromine. Halogens are reactive, non-metal elements with seven electrons in their outer shell which allow them to easily combine with other elements.

Cyanide Leaching Recreational Gold Prospecting

Cyanide is destroyed by sodium thiosulfate or sodium nitrite. An average fatal dose of HCN is about 50-60 milligrams. Cyanide dissolves both gold and silver from alkaline solution. Cyanide is a very "clean" extraction system, as it does not extract many of the base metals such as iron.

Gold Extraction and Recovery Processes

ores to expose the gold particles before cyanidation. Thioura leaching was developed as a potential substitute to cyanide leaching due to its lower toxicity and greater rate of gold and silver dissolution. Other alternative lixiviants to cyanide such as bromides (acid and alkaline), chlorides and thiosulfate are also being developed.

Jul 10, 2017 · Leaching in Metallurgy and Metal Recovery. One example of a leaching process that uses vat leaching is gold cyanidation, the process of extracting gold from low-grade ores. In this process, a dilute solution of sodium cyanide (NaCN) is used to leach the Au into solution. The concentration is usually 0.01-0.05 % cyanide, or 100-500ppm.
