AbstractIn order to develop a hydrometallurgical process to recover gold and silver from anode slime resulted from the treatment of copper sludge, leaching experiments of the anode slime were performed by a mixture of HCl and some oxidizing agents (H2O2, NaClO, and HNO3). Effect of the concentration of oxidizing agents, reaction temperature and time, pulp density and stirring speed on the ...
Gold cyanidation (also known as the cyanide process or the MacArthur-Forrest process) is a hydrometallurgical technique for extracting gold from low-grade ore by converting the gold to a water-soluble coordination complex. It is the most commonly used leaching process for gold extraction.
the P420B project consisted of four research axes: gold ores characterization, gravity circuit audits, the development of a web-based gravity recovery simulator, and studies linking gravity recovery and leaching kinetics. The most salient results are reported here. Modeling of recovery 1. Ore characterization 2. Grinding and classification ...
The ammonium thiosulphate based leaching of gold and silver from PCBs waste, using crushing as a pretreatment, was investigated. It was possible to achieve 98 % gold and 93 % silver recovery within 48 hours of ammonium thiosulphate leaching. This type of leaching is a better leaching procedure for recovery of gold and silver from PCB
A detailed characterization of an iron oxy/hydroxide (gossan type) bearing refractory gold/silver ore was performed with a new diagnostic approach for the development of a pretreatment process prior to cyanide leaching.

Total Recovery of Gold Contained in Computer Printed Circuit Boards. Leaching Kinetics of Cu, Zn and Ni 145 In this work, we propose to recover the gold contained in the printed circuit boards by means of acid dynamic leaching
Introduction to Gold and Silver Leaching The cyanide leaching process is the most important method ever developed for extracting gold from its ores. The early development of the process is attributed to a Scotchman, John Stewart Mac Arthur, in collaboration with the Forrest brothers .

The thiosulfate leaching system represents one of the best alternatives for recovery of metals contained in sulfide minerals in less toxic conditions that cyanidation, reaching higher dissolutions of precious metal also decreasing the leaching time, due to its greater selectivity [14, 15].
The amenability of a refractory ore to the extraction of gold and silver by cyanide leaching was investigated. Diagnostic leaching tests were also performed to shed light on the refractory characteristics of ore.
The end of life for heaps and dumps is the perfect time to consider an enhanced recovery program to draw down the remaining metal inventory in stock, whether it is gold, copper, silver, nickel, uranium, or other mineral resource that is leached with a reagent.
