The Case for Glycine Heap Leaching

Gold ores with elevated or 'nuisance' copper levels are difficult to process by conventional cyanide heap leaching, as the copper causes high cyanide consumption. As well as the direct cyanide cost, this increases the cost of detoxifying effluent solutions.

CYANIDE HEAP LEACHING. The successful application of heap leaching to the extractionof gold from low-grade deposits has been one ofthe main factors in higher output since the s, especially in theUnited States. It is a low cost process that extracts a soluble preciousmetal or copper compound by dissolving themetal content from the crushed.

Modeling the cyanide heap leaching of cupriferous gold …

 · The cyanide heap leaching of copper-bearing gold ores is a very complex phenomenon which is comprised of five, more or less distinct, sequential steps, depending on the mineralogy of the ore. (1) Following leach extraction of WAS-Cu, if present, the reductive dissolution of Cu(II) salts, resulting in the quantitative oxidation of cyanide and the precipitation of copper and gold cyanide salts.

Cyanide Leaching Of Gold

Most cyanide leaching is carried out at a alkaline pH of between 10 and 11, depending upon lab testing of individual ores and the optimum leaching/chemical use rates. The cyanide solution strength is also important in leaching gold, with the typical range of solution being in the 0.02% -0.05% NaCN. The gold particle size has a tremendous effect.

Cyanide Leaching

Cyanide leaching has been the industry standard for gold processing for more than 100 years. During the cyanide leach process, a cyanide solution, or lixiviant, is percolated through ore contained in vats, columns or heaps. Gold is dissolved by the cyanide and then removed from the heap or columns. It is then extracted from the pregnant leach.
