Procedures For Gold Heap Leaching

A Brief Note on the Heap Leaching Technologies for the

ores can be treated via chlorination, bio-oxidation, roasting and autoclaving methods prior to the heap leaching process. In gold leaching, two similar types of leaching pads are used to maintain permanent heap operations. A summary of leaching methods used for the extraction of various metals is shown in Table1. Precious metal recovery by heap leaching [10], base metals from oxide ores [11

29.07.2013· The Vat Leaching Process Vat leaching can be described as leaching in a bathtub inside a building. Treatment of ore is site-specific as determined by metallurgical tests. Bench scale metallurgical testing of ores for their amenability to vat leaching is similar to that for heap leaching. First, bottle-roll tests of finely ground material are run

The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold Leaching – An

20.10.2014· Leaching gold with a cyanide solution remains the most widely used hydrometallurgical process for the extraction of gold from ores and concentrates. Despite the difficulties and hazards of working with cyanide, no other process has yet been proven to be an economic viable alternative. A paper published by L. Elsner in 1846 first correctly identified the chemical reaction that forms the basis

A heap leaching process involves the following requirements. Solution containing sulfuric acid, oxidizing agent (oxygen, iron (III) ions, etc.), as well as microorganisms (for example, Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans, Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans), are fed to the surface of a heap (ore stack) or inside. The solution is distributed evenly over the surface and dump heap mass by means of

BACTERIAL LEACHING AS A PRE-TREATMENT STEP FOR GOLD

There are two general methods of bacterial leaching in gold hydrometallurgy. These are both stirred reactor bio-leaching process and bio-heap leach process. This article will focus upon the stirred reactor bio-leaching process. Stirred reactor bio-leaching process An important feature of bio-leaching as applied to refractory gold ores is the distinction that can be exploited between the
