economic analysis of cyanidation

Cyanidation - 911 Metallurgist

2016-6-8  The reasons the widespread acceptance of cyanidation are economic as well as metallurgical. It usually obtains a higher recovery of gold than plate amalgamation and is easier to operate than the chlorine or bromine process. It produces the final product

A preliminary techno-economic evaluation of the

In fact, gold extraction rates of around 89% can be obtained with thiourea, compared to 71% for cyanidation (19kg/t cyanide). An analysis of the different control factors for thiourea leaching showed that optimum performance by the system requires the following conditions: preprocessing with sulphuric acid, leaching of gold for 72 hours at pH 3, while maintaining thiourea concentration between 3.7 – 5.0 g/L.

Factorial experimentation and economic analysis of the process has been conducted. Screening and factorial design investigations found that SART is largely affected by sulfide to copper molar ratio and cyanide to copper molar ratio. The economic analysis identified the optimum operating conditions for

Advances in the Cyanidation of Gold - ScienceDirect

2016-1-1  Cyanidation, a process used for over a century to extract gold from free milling ores, is so effective that it can economically treat low-grade ores (0.5 g/t Au). The concentration of cyanide added to dissolve gold is much higher than the stoichiometric requirement because of various interferences.

2006-11-28  When performing a cost benefit analysis on any cyanide treatment process, one must consider all of the economic, environmental, and legislative requirements involved (Baxter and Cummings 2006). Compared to chemical treatment processes, biological treatment processes normally have a much higher initial investment cost.

the rapid analysis and control of the cyanide to copper ratio, in adsorption, elution and electrowinning. As a result, the process will be fairly difficult to monitor, control and operate consistently and efficiently. • Vulnerable to feed composition changes. • Not yet operated on a commercial scale.

The mechanism of the cyanidation process was confirmed through in situ FTIR analysis. Silver (Ag) is a precious noble metal that has found applications in photography, nanocatalysis, antibacterial agents and jewelry. 1–3 Most importantly, it contributes to the economic growth of numerous countries. Silver metal extracted from its main ores contributes to a high percentage (∼30%) of the total world production of Ag.

Cyanidation experiments were conducted at room temperature at pH 11. Using the response surface methodology followed by path of steepest ascent, gold cyanidation was found to be at 467.3 ppm NaCN, 94.96 ppm Pb (NO 3) 2 and 0.01M H 2 O 2, at the vicinity towards the optimum condition where 88.97% Au extracted from the ore, equivalent to 1.7231 g/t Au.

CYANIDE RECOVERY COST EFFECTIVENESS IS WHY

DIRECT TREATMENT OF CYANIDATION TAILINGS Free Cyanide If the cyanide is present in the tailings as free or weakly-complexed cyanide (pKa = 9.4), more than 99% of the cyanide is converted to HCN gas by simply lowering the pH of the tailings to about 7. The cyanide is then recovered by air-stripping of the HCN gas from the tailings into an

Obtaining Urea from Effluents of Gold Cyanidation

The urea obtained is undoubtedly an important product extracted from a waste that currently pollutes the water and air. It is a different alternative to oil and living organisms. It could also be used in the recovery of soils degraded by gold mining, thus reducing the harmful effects of such economic activity.
