Refractory Gold Ore Treatment Methods , When ordinary water-slaked lime was used in the cyanide treatment of tailings from previous milling operation, the gold extraction was fair but the cyanide consumption was 12 to 14 lb per ton, but by the use of ordinary air-slaked, or agricultural, lime the consumption was reduced to 35 lb per ton .
Free milling More than 95% Mildly refractory 80 - 95% Moderately refractory 50 - 80% Highly refractory Less than 50% 2 Causes of Ore Refractoriness Gold ore refractoriness vary withgoldmineralisation
A "refractory" gold ore is an ore that has ultra fine gold particles disseminated throughout its gold occluded minerals These ores are naturally resistant to recovery by standard cyanidation and carbon adsorption process These refractory ores require pre-treatment in order for cyanidation to be effective in recovery of the gold
Download Citation on ResearchGate | Ultra fine milling for the recovery of refractory gold | Refractory gold ores may be defined as those which yield low recoveries of gold when treated by the .
May be increasing gold recovery from refractory gold ore (with grade 2-3 g/t) to 90-95%?Actual data of top refractory gold ore mines show, that gold recovery is 70% and less What is reason? It is a problem in minerals processing or it is a global science problem? So if you work with refractory ore.
Among free-milling gold ores placer gold is a special case, as there is no pre-treatment required for gold extraction Gold can be extracted from placer ores using physical separation techniques, particularly through gravity treatment In modern practice, concentrators use centrifugal force in order to liberate finer gold particl
Refractory gold ore is generally defined as ore containing gold which cannot be satisfactorily recovered by conventional methods used to treat non-refractory gold ores, like gravity concentration or cyanidation Cause The refractory nature of these ores can be attributed to the presence of substances that consume the cyanide reagent before it can dissolve the gold, preferentially adsorb ,
Meanwhile, large free-milling gold operations are seeing their deposits become more refractory Between the size and complexity of the ore bodies and the remote locations, mining companies now need a better understanding of the mineralogy and benefits of different extraction options
understanding of the milling and gold leach processes that assisted in narrowing the gap between UFG and roasting This paper details the operation of the ultra fine grinding process at KCGM as a non oxidative treatment for the extraction of gold from a refractory or
Also, grinding the ore to an extremely fine particle size can liberate gold encapulsated in sulfid SGS has very extensive experience with all the unit operations involved in the processing of refractory gold ores, and in selecting the optimum flowsheet for a particular ore Our gold metallurgy expertise is second to none Chemical interference
