gold analysis (1 reply)

4 years ago

We are trying to recover gold, silver and magnetite from copper ore tail.

1) Is it in practice over the world either in lab scale or commercial scale and if so information regarding this?

2) Procedure of fire assay for determination of gold and silver in concentrate as obtained from such copper tail i.e is there any change required from normal fire assay method?

Please, if possible, can you share the following elements pertaining to your copper ore tail?

- the chemical composition

- the mineralogical composition  

- the size distribution of the solids

- the specific gravity of the solids

- the process and reagents used to generate the copper ore tail.
