Recovery of cyanide in gold leach waste solution by ...

2004-9-10  The overall reaction for the dissolution of gold by cyanide in alkaline solution is known as Elsner’s equation: (1) 4 Au + 8 C N − + O 2 + 2 H 2 O = 4 Au (CN) 2 − + 4 O H − Relatively dilute cyanide solutions can be used because of the strong complex formed between cyanide and gold. The ability of cyanide to form complexes makes cyanide ...

CYANIDE REMEDIATION: CURRENT AND PAST

2001-4-2  Cyanide (CN-) is a toxic species that is found predominantly in industrial effluents generated by metallurgical operations. Cyanide's strong affinity for metals makes it favorable as an agent for metal finishing and treatment and as a lixivant for metal leaching, particularly gold. These technologies are environmentally sound but require

The Current Status of Cyanide Regulations E MJ

2020-4-8  The use of low-cost cyanide heap leaching techniques to recover metal from ores has allowed miners to profitably extract gold deposits. The chemical compound has on occasion been mishandled, and in some locations releases have created environmental problems. However, worldwide, the mining industry has shown it can work with cyanide responsibly.
