Treatment of pyritic matrix gold–silver refractory ores by

These refractory ores are usually pretreated by some oxidizing process after which gold and silver can be recovered by standard cyanidation process. Since ozone gas (O3) is a strong oxidizing, it may be regarded as a promising alternative in the treatment of refractory ores. The present work summarizes the results obtained when two pyritic

Roasting and Refractory Gold Ore

Jul 16, 2014Jul 16, 2014During roasting, refractory gold ore is treated with extremely hot air. This causes the sulfites to oxidize, separate from the ore, and become sulfur dioxide. Once all of the sulfides are oxidized, the remaining gold ore can be processed normally. The roasting method has been around for hundreds of years. Prior to the 20th century, the process

This roasting plant, since closed down, was equipped with eight standard 70-spindle Edwards roasters, though only four were finally in use. Fuel was supplied to four ports on each furnace in the form of pulverized lignite of 8500 B.t.u. value prepared at a central plant.

Arsenic release through refractory gold ore processing

Apr 01, 2021Cyanide leaching is the most widely applied leaching process in the case of refractory sulfide ores. Ore concentrates are subjected to cyanide solutions at alkaline conditions (pH ≈ 9.5–10) for 16–48 h, and as a result, gold is extracted in the form of Au(CN) 2-complex.

v117n8a4 Evaluation of ozonation technology for gold

Ozone can potentially be utilized for pre-oxidation of refractory ores, thus improving gold recovery and lowering subsequent cyanide consumption. The unique chemical properties of ozone can also potentially be utilized at other stages of gold processing. Ozone can be used for the destruction of free and weak acid dissociable (WAD) cyanide,
