Which ion exchange resin is the best for processing gold rich solution from a heap leaching process of oxide rich Banded Iron Formation.

You really need to look into activated charcoal , coconut shell, it is far cheaper and easier to use than ion exchange resin.

Hi Kudzisa

A few types of resin work excellent, one of them is Minix gold selective resin. I have been working in comparing resin and activated carbon performance in carbonaceous ore and high base ore for 15 years and designed a few resin plants for gold ores. There are a lot of advantages of resin against activated carbon especially in treating gold carbonaceous ore and gold high base metal ore which are not well known to the public. I believe you are on the right track.

Hi Kudzisa.....I have use Minix and Purogold before....both are working good and has their own advantages.....Minix more selective to copper and less attrition rate while Purogold has bigger loading capacity......
