Gold Leaching Process

Many opportunities exist throughout the world for small cyanide plants, possibly using a Gold Leaching Process,  both for production and pilot operations, especially in areas not easily accessible, and where labor and local costs are on a level for profitable operation. Ores not fully amenable to treatment by amalgamation or flotation processes for the recovery of gold and silver can often be profitably treated by the cyanide process to produce bullion as a final product. The problem of effectively designing a small cyanide plant is a difficult one in view of the various factors involved. It is usually necessary to incorporate, on a smaller scale, the same elements as in larger plants while trying to keep the cost factors within economic limits. Features to insure high recovery, continuous trouble-free service and ease of operation must be carefully considered. Through laboratory test work to develop the best procedure, followed by experienced design and planning of all details are items essential for reduced costs of installed plant and operation.
