About Gold

At present, gold has been known and highly valued since prehistoric times. It may have been the first metal used by
humans and was valued for ornamentation and rituals. Approximately 60% of the gold mined today is held by government and central banks and gold is presently the most significant means of international payment. So gold ore mining, gold extraction and processes is very important today.

Overview of Gold Extraction and Recovery Processes

Various methods such as gravity concentration, flotation, panning, pyrometallurgy, cyanidation etc are available for the extraction of gold metal from its ores. Amongst these methods, cyanidation is the most common method used in the leaching of gold from the ore. This process involves the dissolution of gold containing ores in dilute cyanide solution in the presence of lime and oxygen. For refractory ores such as sulfide ores and carbonaceous ores which are not susceptible to direct cyanide leaching, various methods such as pressure oxidation, roasting, chlorination, biooxidation etc are available to treat these 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.

The common processes for recovery of gold solution includes:
1. Carbon adsorption, Merrill-Crowe process, electrowinning and ion-exchange / solvent extraction.
2. Traditionally, Merrill-Crowe process was used to remove gold from a cyanide solution by using zinc dust to precipitate gold from its solution. Carbon adsorption is increasing using in newer plants for gold recovery.
3. Carbon in Pulp technique involves contacting the leached pulp with granular carbon in a series of agitating tanks with a sufficient retention time.
4. Selected summary of patented gold recovery processes and examples of commercial mining and recovery gold processes.
