Electrochemical recovery of silver from cyanide leaching

In the hydrometallurgy industry cyanide solutions are the most common leaching baths used during the extraction of metals such as silver and gold. After extraction, the solution containing various cyanide species, and usually copper cyanide, has a higher concentration than the gold and silver complexes. Higher concentration of copper species may interfere during the selective recovery of
