A process for leaching a value metal from a base metal sulfide ore, comprising the step of leaching the ore with a lixiviant comprising a chloride, an oxidant and hydrochloric acid is disclosed. The leaching is controlled, by use of low concentrations of hydrochloric acid and a redox potential, to effect formation of hydrogen sulfide from the base metal sulfide ore.
Problem with gold recovery from sulphide ore: How may a mill get the maximum recovery of gold from a sulphide ore, at the least capital cost and at the same time obtain the highest net return. This latter point is most important. In many cases a gold mill using an allcyanide flowsheet with fine grinding of all the ore will report very low gold content in the tailings particularly on an ...
These refractory ores require pretreatment in order for cyanidation to be effective in recovery of the gold. A refractory ore generally contains sulfide minerals, organic carbon, or both. Sulfide minerals are impermeable minerals that occlude gold particles, making it difficult for the leach solution to form a complex with the gold.
Sep 04, 2015· We have had great sucess recovering gold from sulfides with out thiourea based solution. Our recovery rate is usually 94 to 96%. The key to recovery with sulfides is the grind size of the ore while leaching to make sure that your leach solution can make Co tact with the precious metal.
Recovery and dilution usually are interrelated; with some methods of stoping a high recovery involves contamination of the ore from the walls or capping, and often clean ore can be obtained only by leaving some ore in the mine. In openstope mines the greatest loss of ore is that tied up in pillars left for support of the back or hanging wall.
The invention relates to a method for recovering gold from a sulphidic concentrate, particularly one containing arsenopyrite and/or pyrite, hydrometallurgically. The concentrate is first subjected to leaching with a concentrated solution of alkali chloride and copper (II) chloride, by means of which the copper minerals and some of the gold in the concentrate are made to dissolve.

The problem of refractory sulfide gold ore that has a gold recovery less than 50% when direct cyanidation applied, still exists until now. It needs oxidative pretreatment for cyanidation to be effective in gold recovery the objective of this study is figuring out the effect of sodium nitrite as an oxidizing
May 27, 2016· I'm hoping our HEPP process can either eliminate or significantly reduce the roasting step (1218 hours at 600700 degrees C), which is currently required for the recovery of precious metals from sulfide laden ores. If so, our process consumes a fraction (4 cents per ton) of the energy of roasting.
In many locations where they had initially been recovering 90% of the assay values processing oxidized surface ore, with the rebellious sulfide ores they were recovering less than 50%. The rest of the precious metals in their ore simply flowed uselessly out from the mill and into the tailings pond.
Copper Sulphide Ore Flotation Process Xinhai. The copper concentrate grade that obtained by flotation process in China is over 20%, the recovery rate is about 88%; the foreign copper concentrate grade is about 25~40%, the recovery rate is 80~90% Generally, the flotation process of copper sulfide ore …

the recovery efficiency of sulfide ore at the flagship Olimpiada mine. Uralsib Polyus Gold International: 1H11 IFRS Preview Sep 16, 2011. Sumitomo will make best endeavors toward the smooth ramp up to full production of the sulfide ore expansion at Cerro Verde from now on as well.
It has been described as "the single most important operation used for the recovery and upgrading of sulfide ores". The development of froth flotation has improved the recovery of valuable minerals, such as copper and leadbearing minerals. Along with mechanized mining, it has allowed the economic recovery of valuable metals from much lower ...
In addition to a higher rate of recovery and protecting the environment, there are additional benefits of partnering with TCB to process your sulfide ores: For companies with platinum group sulfide ore with valuable base metals of nickel, cobalt, etc…in their ores, TCB can remove the precious metals and companies can then send the processed ...

RECOVERY OF SILVER, GOLD, AND LEAD FROM A COMPLEX SULFIDE ORE USING FERRIC CHLORIDE, THIOUREA, AND BRINE LEACH SOLUTIONS By R. G. Sandberg 1 and J. L. Huiatt 2 ABSTRACT The Bureau of Mines investigated a hydrometallurgical procedure to re cover gold, silver, and byproduct lead from a complex leadzinc sulfide ore.
Sulphide Gold Recovery. Preconcentration of coarse 350 – 500 micron sulphideassociated gold ore, using the InLine Pressure Jig, is required to reject gangue from the high value material. The IPJ, a classic preconcentration device, is effective in gangue rejection prior to further processing of valuable goldbearing material.

Precious metals can be found in ore deposits along with sulfur, and are known as sulfides. Cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead, molybdenum, nickel, silver, zinc, and gold and platinum group metals can be found in sulfide forms. These concentrated ore deposits are considered low grade because of the economic costs associated ...
Mar 25, 2018· The ore has a 5 to 10 percent sulfide content, so I expect about 10 to 20 pounds of sulfide concentrate. Dealing with 10 to 20 pounds is a lot easier than 200 pounds. There will be some loss of values in this operation but I accept this because although the method is less than optimal, it's the best I can put together.
Complex sulfide ores are finegrained, intimate associations of chalcopyrite (CuFeS 2), sphalerite (ZnS) and galena (PbS), disseminated in dominant pyrite, and containing valuable amounts of minor elements. Generally, collectors employed for sulfide recovery are of …
