Leaching and recovery of gold from ore in cyanide-free

Cyanide is the most common lixiviant utilisd to extract gold from primary and secondary raw materials due to its strong complexation with gold and the simplicity of the process. However, environmental and health concerns necessitate alternative methods, such as the recently introduced glycine. Glycine has attracted a lot of attention lately due to its non-toxicity, availability, recyclability

Extraction of gold using cyanide Home » NZQA

Extraction of gold using cyanide Gold is found in very low concentrations in the ore from which it is mined. To collect the gold from the ore it needs to be separated from the other minerals in the ore. To do this the gold needs to be made into a soluble form so that it can be separated from the other minerals as gold is insoluble. To make gold soluble sodium cyanide (NaCN) is added and the
