gold cyanide usage

How is cyanide used in gold mining

Cyanidation is used to extract gold from a finely ground ore material in a mix with water at about 55 solids by mass Gold extraction is always a surface processing based extraction process and has nothing to do with the process of Mining itself...

Cyanide Process

Gold should be separated from other minerals present in the ore As gold is insoluble it should be separated from other minerals to make it soluble Hence sodium cyanide can be added where cyanide ions form a complex ion with the molecules of gold The cyanide process is as explained below-The ore is grounded and crushed...
