Sulphide Gold Ore Treatment by Leaching and Flotation Process

Apr 18, 2016  Problem with gold recovery from sulphide ore: How may a mill get the maximum recovery of gold from a sulphide ore, at the least capital cost and at the same time obtain the highest net return.This latter point is most important. In many cases a gold mill using an all-cyanide flowsheet with fine grinding of all the ore will report very low gold content in the tailings particularly on an ...

required for gold leaching by cyanidation. Another example of chemical interference is the presence of graphitic carbon in a gold ore. This species, which occurs naturally in many orebodies, particularly in the SW United States and West Africa, is able to re-adsorb gold cyanide from the leach solution, lowering overall gold recovery.
