alternative leaching reagents for g springerlinkabstract. sodium cyanide has been the preponderant leaching reagent for g due to its excellent extractions from a great variety of ores and its low cost. although cyanide is poisonous, it has safe industrial and environmental records at the high ph range required in cyanide leaching. in addition, the low concentrations of cyanide used inlimeassisted cyanide leaching of refractory g oresthe leach experiments were performed using cyanide leaching solutions at ph = 10. the results show that the presence of lime greatly increased g leaching rates. column leaching experiments show that there was 35.2 % of g leached without the addition of lime. when 4 % lime was added to g ores, au extraction reached 50.56 %. limethe leaching and adsorption behaviour of g oresfrom the dissociation of the complex is used to leach g from the ore. the stepwise dissociation of cyanide from coppercyanide complexes can also be used to leach g from a variety of oxide and sulphide ores. the copper cyanide's fourth ligand readily dissociates at low cyanide concentrations for use in g leaching.us5250272a process for leaching precious metals witha process for leaching g and silver from ores and ore concentrates is disclosed using a cyanide leaching solution and hydrogen peroxide and maintaining an oxygen concentration of 2 to mg of o 2 /liter. in the invention, leaching takes place in the presence of decomposition catalysts and preferably the formed cyanocomplexes are separated during leaching from the leach solution. leaching of g ores with high cyanicides aprocessing of g ores with high sulfide minerals is problematic as they consume cyanide and reduce g leaching.estimated reading time 5 minsammoniacal thiosulphate leaching of g oreabstract ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching of g finds a better substitute as it is nontoxic and environmentally safe as compared to the toxic cyanide system for g extraction. in the present study, an attempt is made to assess the feasibility of ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching of g oreleaching pyrite g ore without cyanidecyanide leaching with 0.04 m [cn]0 at ph resulted in a better overall g dissolution (97.6%) than thiocyanate leaching with 0.10 m [scn]0 and 0.08 m [fe+3]0 at ph 2 (49.5% g dissolution) or thiourea leaching with 0. m [c (nh5)2]0 and 0.02 m [fe+3] at ph 2 (27.6% gestimated reading time 9 minsthe worlds first breakthrough technology to eliminate thejun 10, · traditionally, g mining has depended on harsh chemicals such as cyanide and mercury to extract g from ore. this has left our planet with a legacy of toxic waste which is harmful to health and the environment. for over 50 s, the industry and leading research institutions have been trying to find such an alternative without much success.
