Process for treating refractory gold ores by roasting

Feb 01, 2000 Microscopic gold inclusions in sulfide minerals cannot typically be extracted by conventional cyanidation. The gold ore must be pretreated to oxidize sulfide minerals associated with gold and to remove other minerals and chemical compounds that interfere in the cyanidation leaching process. The recovery of gold from refractory sulfidic-carbonaceous ores after roasting pretreatment

Processing of refractory gold ores ScienceDirect

The successful application of these processing techniques can result in mining operations that would otherwise have been impossible. However for an increasing number of low grade refractory ores, the estimated capital and operating costs mean that very careful project evaluation will be necessary, particularly at current gold prices.

This paper presents initial findings of a project examining novel processes for the treatment of refractory sulphidic gold concentrates. Non-oxidative roasting of such concentrates for 12 hours at 750C resulted in the finely disseminated gold agglomerating to form discrete grains. The pyrite and arsenopyrite decomposed to form pyrrhotite, whilst the labile sulphur and arsenic driven off was ...

This paper presents a research overview, reconciling key and useful case study findings, towards uncovering major causes of gold refractoriness and maximising extraction performance of specific gold flotation and bio-oxidation products. Through systematic investigation of the ore mineralogical and gold deportment properties, leaching mechanisms, and kinetic behaviour and pulp rheology, it was ...

The ability to process previously untreatable refractory ores, where gold is locked in sulphides, has opened a swathe of new opportunities for the Group to exploit both in the short and long term. In the short term, the POX Hub and associated flotation infrastructure at Malomir has unlocked the value of refractory gold which forms c. 60 of the ...

At this moment the application of the IBES process to refractory gold-bear- ing ores is being studied. Batch and semi-continuous tests have already shown the viability of this process for the pretreatment of arsenopyrite-pyrite gold- bearing concentrates 50 . A refractory gold concentrate, assaying 20 ppm Au, 25.1 ppm Ag, 12 As, 15.8 Fe ...

Pretreatment Process on Refractory Gold Ores with As

Gold ores are considered refractory if gold extractions from a conventional cyanidation process are less than 80 even after fine grinding. 1 Arsenic-bearing refractory gold ore has stones extremely difficult to deal with. In the stones, gold is locked up in arsenic mineral matrix as the form of microscopic or submicroscopic lattice.

Developments in the pretreatment of refractory gold

processing refractory gold ores, especially development in the pretreatment of refractory gold minerals by nitric acid. These processes include the high-pressure and the atmospheric-pressure oxidation methods. High-pressure oxidation processes are difficult to carry out, because they require high-capital cost autoclaves.

Developments in the pretreatment of refractory gold

Sherritts Refractory Gold Technology is used to recover gold from refractory sulphide feedstocks. Many gold ores and concentrates contain fine grained gold locked within sulphide minerals, such as pyrite andor arsenopyrite, unavailable for recovery by conventional leaching. In Sherritts gold process, the sulphide and arsenide minerals are completely oxidized by pressure oxidation, thereby liberating the

Aug 19, 2020 Metso Outotec, a frontrunner in minerals and metals processing, has recently launched the Outotec MesoTHERM BIOX process for the treatment of refractory gold. This

The refractory gold sulfide-containing material can be in any form, such as ore, concentrate, tailings, calcine, matte, slag, and other derivatives of metallurgical processes. The material may contain recoverable amounts of silver.

Basic Iron Sulphate in Pox Processing of Refractory Gold

Typical autoclave operating conditions for a refractory gold process are a temperature of 190 to 230OC, and an oxygen over-pressure of 350 to 700 kPa 50 to 100 psi. The oxidation of sulphides are strongly exothermic reactions, and the pulp density of the feed to the autoclave is calculated based on the sulphide concentration in such a way as to provide sufficient heat from the oxidation reaction to maintain the operating temperature of the autoclave

Basic Iron Sulphate in Pox Processing of Refractory Gold

The present invention is directed to flotation of refractory gold sulfide ores in which the ore is ground, floated, the tailings reground, and refloated to produce gold-bearing concentrates.

Once fully operational, the plant is expected to deliver more than 100,000 ty of refractory gold concentrate for treatment at its POX Hub, the company says. The opening of the Pioneer flotation plant doubles the groups capacity to process refractory gold ore which, including the existing Malomir flotation plant, now stands at 7.2 Mty.

refractory gold recovery to choose is usually based on the economics of investment and operating costs OPEX. These processes are all expensive and economic considerations have traditionally weighed heavily on the final process decision. Marcus Runkel, senior process engineer at Outotec, says The economics are driven by the gold recovery rate.
