Thiosulphate leaching of gold in the presence of

2011-1-1  Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) was introduced as a surfactant in the leaching of pure gold as well as a sulphide ore using ammoniacal thiosulphate medium. Competing with thiosulphate anions to complex with the cupric ion at the axial coordinate sites, CMC in small quantities reduced the consumption of thiosulphate in the ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching system.

Size-Controlled Flow Synthesis of Gold

2012-4-4  Segmented flow is often used in the synthesis of nanomaterials to achieve narrow particle size distribution. The narrowness of the distribution is commonly attributed to the reduced dispersion associated with segmented flows. On the basis of the analysis of flow fields and the resulting particle size distribution, we demonstrate that it is the slip velocity between the two fluids and internal

Seasoning or Breaking In a New Gold Pan

Use some surfactant in the panning tub until the pan is broke in from the mechanical action of the material affecting the surface of the pan. There you have it, by using some common sense and a small amount of effort you can recover more of the fine “flour gold” from your favorite prospecting site.
