Refractory gold ores in Archaean greenstones, Western ...

Gold ores of the Yilgarn Craton are character-ized in their upper parts by deep weathering and the development of extensive oxide and super-gene deposits. From a metallurgical perspective, oxide ores are invariably free-milling and usually give good gold recoveries (typically 90–95%or higher). Supergene gold ores are sometimes more dif ...

Microbial Community Analysis inside a Biooxidation Heap ...

In a mine owned by the company Orenas S.A. (Equador), a biooxidation process for gold recovery has been developed. Refractory gold ore was crushed, milled and 500 ton of flotation concentrate was agglomerated by coating a support rock. This was piled up on a liner and the biooxidation process in the heap of 35x25x6 m3 was run for approximately 150 days.

Characterization of passivating coatings on gold grains ...

These coatings are related to the extraction process and not to the ore mineralogy of the feed sample. Comparison between the surface silver present on gold grains from feed and residue samples indicates that the silver passivation layer is developed on the surface of the gold grains during the leaching process. Figure 1.

Solution pH decreased during the experiment from 2.9 to 1.9-2.2. Elemental analysis using X-ray fluorescence showed that the contents of metals, except for As, in the leach residue were below the ...

Geometallurgical Characterization and Automated Mineralogy ...

 · For refractory gold ores, in which gold occurs mainly as submicroscopic gold in sulfide minerals and is associated with carbonaceous matter in some deposits, pretreatment is required before leaching, making gold ore processing more challenging and ore characterization more important. 3.1.

Biogenic Hydrogen Sulfide for Cyanide Regeneration in ...

An optimal approach to the problem of cupriferous gold ores hydrometallurgical processing is the recycling of process solutions after copper recovery and regeneration of cyanide bound in complexes. The study focuses on the copper-cyanide solutions processing technology using biogenic hydrogen sulfide for copper recovery in the form of сhalcocite, and cyanide regeneration.

The Method for the Characterization of Carlin Trend Gold Ores

Carlin Trend gold ores are often refractory by conventional cyanid, for a number reasons:1) the gold is locked up within host sulfide minerals such as pyrite or arsenopyrite; 2) the ore contains carbonaceous compounds which are preg-robbing; 3) the gold is locked up in silicate minerals. An alternative technique called diagnostic leaching, originally developed by the Anglo American Research ...

Article Automated gold grain counting. Part 1: Why counts ...

 · 50 Canadian orogenic gold ores [43] reported that 75% of the gold was fine grained (from 0.1 to 100 µm), with the remaining 25% of the population as coarse grained (from 100 to 10,000 µm); the most common size range of gold grains being 40-50 µm. The gold grain size appears, in general, to control the gold grade, with low-grade ores
