Refractory Gold SGS

In assessing the economic benefit of the extra processing that needs to be done to improve recovery from refractory or partially refractory ores, it is always important to consider the incremental improvement in gold recovery versus standard grinding and cyanidation, and the incremental increase in costs to achieve this improvement.

Processing Refractory Gold Hydrometallurgy: Leaching in

Processing Refractory Gold is so hard! Low recovery is very common with refractory ores, in fact a 70% recovery could be considered good. Refractory ores are normally have either a high sulfide content that masks the gold preventing cyanide leaching of the gold, or high organic content that also block gold leaching (reabsorbs the gold), or it

Refractory and Non-Refractory Ore Gold Companies Explained

Refractory and Non-Refractory Ore. In general, refractory ore is one that is not amenable to gold extraction using cyanide. Refractory ore is undesirable because the methods needed to enable gold extraction are expensive. Non-refractory ore is where cyanide can be used to extract the gold. This is desirable as it means the process will be cheaper.

How to Improve the Refractory Gold Leaching Process? Xinhai

Aug 18, 2020 Refractory gold ore refers to the part of gold ore that cannot be extracted effectively by the conventional cyanide leaching process after the fine grinding. The gold in this type of gold ore cannot contact with the cyanide solution due to physical encapsulation or chemical combination, resulting in a very low gold leaching rate.
