gold occurs as tiny inclusions or submicroscopic gold and are therefore refractory. Silver-rich ores and copper sulfide ores: Silver-rich ores and copper sulfide ores are often free-milling, but when the silver grade is high (>10 g/t) and/or the gold is present as electrum, the processing may need to be modified.

Gold Extraction & Recovery Processes

2016-2-29  The agglomerates are burned in order to produce a product with high gold content or can be smelted for producing metallic gold. The process involves simple and known unitary processes: mixing, flotation, burning, and smelting.

Gold processing Mining and concentrating Britannica

2 天前  Amalgamation is accomplished by passing a slurry of ore over copper plates coated with mercury, by mixing a slurry of ore and mercury in a cylindrical or conical vessel called an amalgam barrel, or by grinding the ore in a ball, rod, or pebble mill to free the gold from the mineral matrix and then adding mercury to the mill and continuing grinding until the gold

Review of gold extraction from ores ScienceDirect

The nature of Australian gold production is briefly reviewed and the hydrometallurgy of gold extraction is considered. The choice of processing routes for free milling, complex and refractory ores is discussed. For free milling ores, cyanidation and recovery by the Carbon-in-Pulp/Carbon-in-Leach process (CIP/CIL) is the primary and proven treatment

Copper Ore Processing Methods

2017-4-11  Next. The four major steps in the production of marketable copper are mining, concentrating, smelting, and refining. In a few instances, however, leaching takes the place of concentrating, smelting, and refining. At present, although considerable leaching and direct-smelting ores are produced, the bulk of the copper

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. The main causes of refractory gold ores are submicroscopic gold, the Au-Ag tellurides, and very fine-grained gold (<10 µm) locked

Ore is transported to the primary crushers using P&H 4100 electric mining shovels and a fleet of 220t-capacity Caterpillar 793C mechanical-drive haul trucks. The mine typically handles around 600,000t/d of ore and waste, the ore grading an average 0.49% copper and 0.39g/t gold.
