Gold CIL & CIP Gold Leaching Process Explained CCD

2013-1-2  Cyanide is a lixiviant, or reagent that is used to leach, often in tanks, gold from a solid matrix and form a gold cyanide complex. The gold cyanide complex is then extracted from the pulp or slurry by adsorption onto activated carbon. CIL stands for carbon-in-leach. This is a gold extraction process called cyanidation where carbon is added to the leach tanks (or reaction vessel) so that leaching

THIOSULPHATE LEACHING AN ALTERNATIVE TO

Thiosulphate leaching is a process that removes gold from gold bearing ores without the use of cyanide. Although not as aggressive a leaching agent as cyanide, thiosulphate offers several technological advantages including its lower toxicity and greater efficiency with gold deposits associated with preg-robbing ores. The thiosulphate leaching process, followed by resin-in-pulp gold extraction, has been developed by SGS to the point where it is a technically and economically viable alternative to cyanidation for some gold
