THIOSULPHATE LEACHING – AN ALTERNATIVE TO CYANIDATION

• The thiosulphate leaching of gold ores has great potential to reduce the impact on the environment compared to the cyanidation process. Unlike cyanide, which is highly toxic, the chemicals used in the thiosulphate leaching process are benign, and there is great potential to apply the technology in those jurisdictions of the world where the use of cyanide is banned outright, or is subject ...

Sodium Thiosulphate Gold Leaching

The gold industry has been seeking alternative reagents for leaching gold from low-grade ores for the past 25 years. The cost and transport of cyanide, the poor recovery of gold from carbonaceous ores, the lack of selectivity of cyanide towards copper minerals and the cost of waste treatment are real factors which can make cyanide unattractive in some circumstances. However there are also ...

Gold recovery from ammonia-thiosulfate leaching

01/11/2019  Chemistry of thiosulfate leaching of gold. Since the 1880's, Cyanidation has been the main method for the extraction of gold and silver from a wide range of ores, because of its high extraction efficiency and cost/benefit ratio. However, the quantity of gold ores than can be easily treated with cyanide has diminished while, conversely, there is a growing quantity of ores refractory to ...

Ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching of gold ore

leaching of gold as its absence makes gold passive by the build up of sulphur coating on the surface as a result of decomposition of thiosulphate. It is known that thiosulphate is a meta-stable species that readily undergoes decomposition in aqueous solutions. Ammonia adsorbs onto the gold surface preferentially over thiosulphate forming gold-ammine-complex thereby reducing the passivation ...

COMPARISON OF CYANIDE AND THIOSULPHATE LEACHING FOR GOLD ...

Before leaching the gold, ore must be crushed and grinded into small particles, usually particle size varies between 30 and 180 μm. Free milling ores are ready for leaching after crushing and grinding whereas refractory ores need pretreatment. It is important to pretreat a refractory ore before leaching to achieve better gold extraction. Pretreatment methods are for example chemical blanking ...

Improvement of thiosulfate stability in gold leaching ...

Ammonium thiosulfate is a noncyanide lixiviant for gold leaching. However, the major problem with this leaching method has been the high consumption of reagents. To leach a mild-refractory copper-bearing gold ore, the authors used a reagent combination of 0.3M (NH4)2S2O3, 0.03M CuSO4 and 3M NH3 at pH 10.2 for 24 hours. In the testing, thiosulfate consumption was 30 kg/t of ore.
