Gold Mining Process Control Using Cyanide

  • Cyanide Use in Gold Mining Earthworks

    Cyanide's efficiency makes mining more wasteful Because cyanide leaching is very efficient, it allows profitable mining of much lower ore grades Mining lower grade ore requires the extraction and processing of much more ore to get the same amount of gold Partially due to cyanide, modern mines are much larger than before cyanide was used;

      The mercury amalgamation process had previously been used but recovered only about 60 per cent of an ore body’s gold In contrast, leaching finely ground ore with cyanide can recover up to 97 per cent of the ore body’s gold The process involves: Removal of all topsoil from the area to be mined
