Thiosulphate as an Alternative to Cyanide for Gold

2016-8-3  Thiosulphate is an attractive alternative reagent to cyanide for processinggold ores. It is relatively cheap and non-toxic, forms relatively stronggold and silver complexes, and readily leaches gold ores in ammoniacalsolutions, catalysed by Cu(II). It is particularly suited to carbonaceousores where the recovery of gold by cyanide is poor. However researchover the past 20 years has identified a number of issues and impedimentsthat must be understood or overcome before an overall process can bedemonstrated as practical and economic for typical oxidised gold ores.This paper reviews our current understanding of thiosulphatechemistry and mechanism of gold dissolution, and discusses the stabilityof thiosulphate and polythionates. It then reviews the results of leachingvarious gold ores that have been reported in the literature, discusses goldrecovery options, and considers environmental and toxicity issues. Someof the issues that require further research include decreasing theoxidation of thiosulphate by Cu(II) or other oxidants, increasing theextraction of gold compared to cyanide,

THIOSULPHATE LEACHING AN ALTERNATIVE TO

Thiosulphate leaching yields similar gold recovery as cyanide in some cases, while in cases such as preg-robbing ores (naturally occurring carbonaceous material that preferentially absorbs the gold cyanide complex but not the gold thiosulphate complex), it can yield substantially better recovery than cyanide.

(DOC) Alternatives to cyanide in the gold mining

Coal-oil gold agglomeration The coal-oil gold agglomeration (CGA) method has been identified as an alternative to cyanide for large-scale operations. More recently, it has also been promoted as an alternative to mercury amalgamation in the small-scale (artisanal) gold mining industry.

Cyanide Alternative in Gold Leaching

2021-6-11  Sodium cyanide, NaCN, is by its anion CN-, a strong complexing agent for precious metals, and therefore used in gold leaching. Sodium ferrocyanide, Na4[Fe(CN)6], is by its anion [Fe(CN)6]4- also a strong complexing agent for most transition metal ions with oxidation state +II, e.g. Cu2+, Pb2+, Zn2+, but not for the precious metals.

DISSOLUTION OF GOLD WITH CYANIDE REPLACING

2014-9-8  The gold producers have been looking for alternative solutions to cyanide. Some of the alternative methods are thiourea, thiocyanate, thiosulphate, agglomerates of oil and coal, and halides (Hilson, 2006). Operating windows for cyanide leaching and alternative chemistries are shown in Fig. 1. The most actively studied chemistries are thiosulfate, thiourea, halides and -hydroxynitriles

2005-1-1  1. Background. For the past 100 years the key element in the processing of gold ore has been the cyanidation process. Over the years steady improvements have occurred in equipment design; milling has evolved from stamp mills, through tube mills and ball mills to the large semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) and fullyautogenous grinding (FAG) circuits in modern gold plants.
