Leaching and recovery of gold from ore in cyanide-free

2020-11-1  1. Introduction. Currently, cyanide is the predominant lixiviant used to extract gold due to its strong complexation with gold and the technical simplicity of the leaching process (Avraamides, 1982, Habashi, 1987, Marsden and House, 2006).However, the use of cyanide can bring challenges in terms of environmental, health and safety aspects (Aylmore, 2005, Laitos, 2012).

Recent Advances in the Development of an Alternative to

Consequently, gold recovery by thiosulphate leaching is usually slightly less efficient than can be achieved with cyanide, and higher concentrations of the lixiviant are needed to produce comparable leach kinetics. One of the situations where thiosulphate . leaching yields higher gold recovery than cyanide is the treatment of preg-robbing ores.
