Gold Heap Leaching Process

Gold Heap Leaching Process

【Introduction】: Heap leaching (HL) is a flexible and economic mineral processing method, commonly used to extract gold from low-grade gold ores. In this process, ore is firstly crushed to fine particles. By spraying leaching solution to the large piles, the gold-containing solution is leached. Then used the method of carbon adsorption, zinc powder displacement device and so on to separate gold from the liquid.

【Application】: Heap leaching method is always used for low-grade ore, small gold mine, or both. These ore can not to process by using the conventional method.

【Case】: The video is desorption electrolysis system of Xinhai Tanzania gold project. Desorption electrolysis system is one of the key decive in CIP. In gold electrowinning process, when the electrolysis equipment is added with anions which are more easily absorbed by activated carbons, Au(CN)2ˉ is replaced by anion and the gold desorption is achieved. After the carbons loaded with gold are desorbed, pregnant solution is process via ionization. At last, solid gold is attained.
