Gold-Copper Ores ScienceDirect

2016-1-1  As expected, the copper in the circuit reduced to a low level, but when sulfide copper–gold ore processing resumed, the copper concentration in the leach circuit did not attain previous levels even though a higher copper orebody was being mined. The copper recovery plant was operated intermittently for a few months and was eventually shut down.

Cupric chloride leaching of gold has also been investigated as a following step for copper sulfide leaching processes such as Intec (Moyes, 2002), HydroCopper™ ( Haavanlammi et al., 2007), and

Improving the recovery of gold and copper in a CIP

In the early stages of the operation the overall gold recovery achieved averaged 61% and copper recovery was 74%. The plant was experiencing problems in the leach, adsorption, elution and electrowinning sections mainly as a result of the presence of copper in the ore.

Eliminating Copper from Gold Ore

2015-10-11  Copper minerals, even though minor components of precious metal ores, dissolve in these cyanide leaching solutions, consume cyanide, cause fouling of mill solutions, and thus interfere with the precipitation and recovery of gold.2,3,4 Here is a summary of laboratory investigations on the use of cyanide solutions as extractants for copper

Recovery of Gold and Silver and Removal of Copper, Zinc

2015-2-12  In general, the quality of precipitate in the cyanidation process will depend upon the nature of the ore being treated. The richer the pregnant solution is, the better the quality of the precipitate of gold and silver is, although this is modified by the presence of metals, such as copper, lead, zinc and iron. This behavior can be explained

17 Flotation of Gold Ores

2017-2-16  The flotation of gold-bearing ores is classified according to ore type (i.e. gold ore, gold copper ore, gold antimony ores, etc.), because the flotation methods used for the recovery of gold from different ores is vastly different. 17.2 GEOLOGY AND GENERAL MINERALOGY OF GOLD

Recovery of gold from sedimentary gold-bearing ores

The sedimentary gold-bearing ore to which the present invention relates typically contains from about 0.1 to 1.0 ounces of gold per ton of ore, from about 0.1 to 5.0% by weight of carbon and up to about 2.0% by weight of pyritic materials, a substantial portion of the gold being present in the form of organic carbonaceous compounds and gold

Effectiveness acidic pre-cleaning for copper-gold ore

The objective was to evaluate the amount of soluble copper in cyanide before and after acidic cleaning. From a gold ore containing copper, the study selected four samples containing 0.22%, 0.55%, 1.00% and 1.36% of copper. For direct cyanidation of the ore without pre-treatment, copper extraction by cyanide complexing ranged from 8 to 83%.

Copper ores Danafloat

A typical copper sulphide ore contains various levels of iron sulphide types that generally include pyrite (FeS2) and pyrrhotite (Fe1-xS). Often gold and silver are present which may either be associated with the sulphides or are free. The gangue particles can consist of a

Hydrometallurgical considerations in processing arsenic

2017-8-21  As most of these concentrates also contain significant levels of gold and silver, recovery of these precious metals cannot be overlooked. The CESL Cu-As Technology deals with each of these parameters effectively. The major steps of the CESL Copper Process Flowsheet are outlined in Figure 1.

What Is High Grade?

Gold and silver often occur together (frequently as an alloy called electrum). Maximizing gold recoveries often means giving up a lot of silver recovery. If there’s copper and gold together, you can run into the problem of the copper using up cyanide before it gets to liberating the gold.
