Refractory Gold. The last type of gold deposit is called refractory gold, and it is the most difficult type to extract. It can be defined as any ore that responds poorly to a conventional gravitycyanidation process with examples including copper porphyry, complex sulfides, arsenopyrite and leadzinc associations.
· Cyanide process. Cyanide extraction of gold may be used in areas where fine goldbearing rocks are found. Sodium cyanide solution is mixed with finely ground rock that has been proven to contain gold or silver and is then separated as a gold cyanide or silver cyanide solution from ground rock. To precipitate residual zinc and silver and gold metals, zinc is added. Zinc is removed with .
The invention relates to a process for recovering precious metals from fine carbon bearing residual amounts of precious metals. The process involves the incineration of the carbon, followed by a method for separating the precious metals from carbon ash. Possible methods include cyanidation, gravity concentration, smelting, electrowinning and solvent extraction.
extract gold as "a byproduct in the manufacture of salt, bromine, etc." A Task for the Imagination. One is at a loss to comprehend the enormous wealth thus floating in solution in the ocean. At the lowest estimate, a cubic mile of seawater contains gold to the value of 65,000,000. It is probably nearer the mark. to place it at 100,000,000.
Similarly, gold was leached from the solid residue with HCl/H 2 O 2, followed by electrowinning, to generate a high purity (%) gold deposit. 97 A complete process has been developed for the processing of waste PCBs which also favours stripping out the dominant metals as a first step. 98 Iron and aluminium were removed first using magnetic and eddy current separation, followed by ...
· Cyanide process, also called Macarthurforrest Process, method of extracting silver and gold from their ores by dissolving them in a dilute solution of sodium cyanide or potassium cyanide. The process was invented in 1887 by the Scottish chemists John S. .

· These processes involved in the extraction and refining of the metal are called metallurgy. The ores of most of the metals should be brought to the Earth's surface for extracting metal from them. This process is called mining. Generally, there are three main steps involved in the process of extraction of metals. These are:
· Electrolytic processes for gold and other precious metals refining usually provide the most costeffective method of separating these metals from the slag, or gangue. The Electrorefining Process. There are two main types of electrolytic processes, called electrorefining and electrowinning. Both processes use direct electrical current whereby pure metal is deposited at the hode. Electro ...

cyanide process. cyanide process or cyanidation, method for extracting gold from its ore. The ore is first finely ground and may be concentrated by flotation; if it contains certain impurities, it may be roasted. It is then mixed with a dilute solution of sodium cyanide (or potassium or calcium cyanide) while air is bubbled through it.
· The alloyed gold with other metals, gold dust, and finegold was recovered by chemical process. The reagent consumption, kg/ton of NACN and 6 Kg / ton of CaOwere used for extraction of placer gold deposits. The extracted gold is g /t and silver 22 g /t and the remaininggold like the amalgamation residue, tailings and middlings are extracted by cyanidation .
