Pyrite Mining Processing Equipment Flow Chart Cases

Commonly called fool’s gold, pyrite is the Earth’s most abundant sulfide mineral. Recognized for its brass-yellow color which resembles that of gold, pyrite is a source of iron and sulfur and is used for the production of sulfuric acid. Some types of pyrite contain enough microscopic gold to warrant mining them as a gold

Pyrite vs Gold how to spot the difference

2018-8-5  Gold is very heavy! Pyrite is not. The specific density of pyrite is 5 and the specific density of gold is over 19! That means that the same volume of gold weighs 3.8 times that of pyrite. All methods of gold mining use this fact to separate gold from lighter materials, including pyrite.

Ask The Experts How do I recover gold in pyrite? ICMJs

It is microscopic and is found inside the pyrite crystal. Miners who process gold ores will get free gold particles that can be melted into bars, but they also recover pyrite that has small amounts of gold within it. Often the majority of the gold is in the free particles, but sometimes the pyrite can also contain important amounts of gold.

Visible native gold grains occur as small inclusions throughout core and rim of both pyrite types, as well as in fractures within it.

Pyrite Mineral Uses and Properties

Some pyrites can contain 0.25% gold by weight or more. Although this is a tiny fraction of the ore, the value of gold is so high that the pyrite might be a worthwhile mining target. If pyrite contains 0.25% gold and the gold price is $1500 per troy ounce, then one ton of pyrite will contain about 73 troy ounces of gold

The principal gold minerals that affect the processing of gold ores are native gold, electrum, Au-Ag tellurides, aurostibite, maldonite, and auricupride. In addition, submicroscopic (solid solution) gold, principally in arsenopyrite and pyrite, is also important.
