cyanide poisoning in gold processing

Cyanide hazards to plants and animals from gold mining

Cyanide hazards to plants and animals from gold mining and related water issues. Cyanide extraction of gold through milling of high-grade ores and heap leaching of low-grade ores requires cycling of millions of liters of alkaline water containing high concentrations of potentially toxic sodium cyanide (NaCN), free cyanide, and metal-cyanide ...

Isolation and removal of cyanide from tailing dams in gold ...

2020-5-15  Thickener underflow contains considerable amounts of cyanide compounds and is discharged to the tailings dam. One of the problems associated with gold extraction using cyanide solutions is the potential toxicity of cyanide compounds present in tailings, and their undesirable impacts on the environment (Laitos, 2013).

Cyanide Usage in Gold Mining in the Tropics

Given the relatively low gold price, cost efficient processing is all the more important, if the gold mining industry is to continue. Several cyanide accidents have recently occurred. Spills and leaks from processing operations together with accidental drops from helicopter shave been noted in the press.

INNOVATION Cyanide management in the gold industry

2015-1-20  Cyanide recovery can have a significant impact on the economics of processing high cyanide-consuming copper-gold orebodies. When cyanide destruction is practised in these situations, the operating costs associated with cyanide alone will amount to more than US$2/kg of cyanide used in the process.

Gold Cyanidation Process - 911 Metallurgist

2016-6-8  The gold cyanidation process is the most important method ever developed for extracting gold from its ores. The reasons the widespread acceptance of cyanidation are economic as well as metallurgical. It usually obtains a higher recovery of gold than plate amalgamation and is easier to operate than the chlorine or bromine process.

What is the role of cyanide in mining MiningFacts

2015-4-1  Role of cyanide in ore processing Cyanide, in the form of a very dilute sodium cyanide solution, is used to dissolve and separate gold from ore. [3] The process used to extract gold using cyanide was developed in Scotland in 1887, and was first used in large scale commercial mining by the New Zealand Crown Mines Company at Karangahake in 1889.

Effect of pH on Cyanidation Process - Hydrometallurgy ...

2021-10-16  CN- is required to leach gold and thus at decreasing pH's the quantity of CN- decreases due to the formation of HCN as pointed out above. Thus, the gold leach reaction can become cyanide limited if the CN- concentration gets too low - can compensate by having higher cyanide addition but also get higher HCN and hence HCN loss!
