Mineralogy and Pretreatment of a Refractory Gold

The finer the grain size of gold particles, the more difficult they are to recover [ 18, 19 ]. In sulphidic refractory gold ores, gold is highly disseminated and locked up in sulphide minerals, such as pyrite and arsenopyrite, in the form of micro or sub-micro particles, and is often recovered with these sulphide minerals by flotation [ 8, 20 ].

Characterization of refractory behaviour of complex

2009-6-1  Based on the diagnostic leaching data (Table 4) the refractoriness of the ore can be ascribed to fine dissemination and association of gold with carbonates and oxides (about 21%), silicates (about 1.9%) and sulphides (29.5%, i.e., a total gold extraction in H2SO4, FeCl3+HCl, HNO3 treatments).

The ore assayed 20 g/t Au and 220 g/t Ag and contained predominantly quartz/clay and barite, and to a lesser extent, sulphides such as pyrite, stibnite, sphalerite, zinkenite (Pb 9 Sb 22 S 42) and andorite (Sb 3 PbAgS 6). The latter mineral was identified to be the most important

Temperatures of above 50°C were achieved for an ore containing 3% pyrite and 3% chalcopyrite (2.6% total sulphides), and temperatures of above 60°C were achieved after the addition of an admixture (6% total sulphides).

gold refractory,ore classification,preprocessing methods

Classification of refractory ores. 1. Carbonaceous gold ore. There is organic carbon which can do‘Rob gold’in gold and silver ore, and it causes that gold is adsorbed in the cyanide solution, make ore difficult to cyanide and leach. Generally, we use roasting and chlorination pretreatment to destroy all or part carbon.

Treatment of Refractory Gold Ores SpringerLink

Abstract. Problem ores that yield low (say less than 80%) gold recovery by cyanidation when “normally ground” are defined as refractory. The term, as well as the technical methods used to treat such ores, are relatively new. Rose and Newman’s very comprehensive book, The Metallurgy of Gold, does not even contain the term refractory in its
