AN AQUEOUS CHLORINATION PROCESS FOR THE …

408 Journal of the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy March, 1967. An aqueous chlorination process for the treatment of merrill slimes and gravity concentrates from gold ores — N. J. Finkelstein. It appeared that the cost of this process was very close to that of the conventional process for the production of mine bullion.

The Mining Process – Waihi Gold

The Mining Process. 1. Mining – open pit and underground. To define the ore from the waste rock, samples are taken and assayed. Assay results are used to mark out areas of ore and waste rock, which are mined separately. Some of the harder areas require blasting to loosen the rock prior to excavation by hydraulic diggers.

Gold Refining | From Gold Ore to Doré | World Gold Council

The two gold refining methods most commonly employed to derive pure gold are: the Miller process and the Wohlwill process. The Miller process uses gaseous chlorine to extract impurities when gold is at melting point; impurities separate into a layer on the surface of the molten purified gold. The Miller process is rapid and simple, but it ...

Research progress of chlorination roasting of heavy metals ...

The chlorination processed pyrite tailings have a high removal rate of heavy metals (Pb, 97%; Cu, 78.49%; Zn, 97%) as well as a high metallization rate of 93.36%. Another group [34] proposed a chlorination method combined with magnetic separation and the main step of removing Zn and Pb is the chlorination roasting.

Study of Gold Leaching Behavior in the Chlorination …

This reveals that the leaching behavior of gold in the chlorination process is the key to improve the gold leaching rate. Hence, the leaching behaviors of gold at different concentrations of NaClO 3, NaCl, and H 2 SO 4 were evaluated in this study.

The Extraction of Gold by Amalgamation and Chlorination

The process of amalgamation of gold and silver by mercury (quicksilver) had been known for centuries. The Romans knew that gold would amalgamate with mercury but it is not certain they used the process to separate gold from ores. Agricola described the process of gold amalgamation in use in Europe in 1556 and it is likely that the

How Gold Is Refined: A Step-By-Step Guide - Pease Curren

The result of this process is 99.5 percent pure gold. The final step is to cast the gold into electrodes or anodes and place them in an electrolytic cell. The refiners will then pass an electric current through the cell. At the end of this process, the …

Gold refining – Waihi Gold

The gold content is captured in a 'mud bag' around the anode. It is washed and dried, then melted and refined in a chlorination process where chlorine gas is introduced into the melting crucible. Gold is separated from the remaining base metals and is poured into granules or bars for commercial sale.

Gold Chlorination Processes & Methods

Chlorination Process for Gold. This process was based on the fact that chlorine, in the presence of moisture, converts gold into the trichloride AuCl3, which is soluble in water and removed by washing, the gold being then precipitated by ferrous sulphate, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, or charcoal. Coarse gold requires long contact and ...

Gold/silver base metal concentrate deportment. Smelters typically pay >95% (Au) and 90% (Ag) in copper and lead concentrates, but will only pay 60-70% (maximum, depending on degree of Pb/Zn smelter integration) for gold and silver in zinc concentrates. Cost drivers are also important in flowsheet selection, and are summarised in Table 3.

The chlorination process is also fairly easy to implement, when compared to other water treatment methods. It is an effective method in water emergency situations as it can eliminate an overload of pathogens relatively quickly. An emergency water situation can be anything from a filter breakdown to a mixing of treated and raw water.
