Benefits of using SART on a Zn laded CN solution | Process

In the absence of SART Process, cyanide is consumed by the leaching of cyanide-soluble zinc minerals present in the ore, generating a WAD cyanide-zinc complex (Zn(CN)42-) in solution. This dissolved WAD CN-Zn complex circulates back to the leach in the recycled Barren Leach Solution (BLS), and further reacts with Ag2S in the fresh ore to … Read more
