Gold Extraction & Recovery Processes

2016-2-29  The processing of gold ores has traditionally made use of conventional crushing and grinding circuits. During comminution there is a generation of abraded iron surfaces from grinding media and the broken particles can be deposited on gold surface changing gold (cement) obtained will be sent to retorting and smelting. For gold extraction

Extraction of Gold

The process is applicable directly to gold- bearing sand, and to gold-bearing rocks after crushing. The crushing is effected by stone-crushers, rolling-mills, and stamp-mills. The washing is carried out either by subjecting the material to the prolonged action of flowing water, or by mechanical agitation with water in deep iron pans or " cradles."

Gold Metallurgy and Leaching Process

2015-6-24  Leaching, often gold, is the process of extracting a soluble constituent from a solid by means of a solvent. In extractive metallurgy, of gold, it is the process of dissolving a certain mineral (or minerals) from an ore or a concentrate, or dissolving certain constituents from materials such as a calcines, mattes, scrap alloys, anodic slimes, etc., to achieve either one or two purposes:
