Processing, smelting and refining gold World Gold Council

The two gold refining methods most commonly employed to derive pure gold are: the Miller process and the Wohlwill process. The Miller process uses gaseous chlorine to extract impurities when gold is at melting point; impurities separate into a layer on the surface of the molten purified gold. The Miller process is rapid and simple, but it

Energy efficiency • Energy intensity in copper and gold

Oct 01, 2017 Mines are faced with numerous challenges, such as falling raw material prices, declining metal grades in the ores and higher energy prices. Especially because ore processing is particularly energy-intensive, the industry is again focusing on the saving of energy. This report shows what are the key energy saving considerations in the copper and gold mining sectors.

Market Underestimates Energy Consumption By The Gold

Jan 25, 2018 While the gold mining industry reports energy as only 15-20% of its total production costs, the total amount consumed by the industry is much higher. The market underestimates the amount of energy consumed by the gold mining industry because of the way it is listed in their financial statements. Thus, it takes a great deal more energy to produce gold than the market realizes.

Energy Use of Fine Grinding in Mineral Processing

Dec 18, 2013 The Albion process uses ultrafine grinding to enhance the oxidation of sulfide concentrates in treating refractory gold ores. In the process, the flotation concentrate is ground to a P80 of 10 to 12 μm. The product slurry is reacted with oxygen in a leach tank at atmospheric pressure; limestone is added to maintain the pH at 5 to 5.5.

How to Refine Gold: 2 Major Techniques of Gold Refining

Mostly, the gold obtained through gold electrolysis is usually very pure, almost 99.999%. In fact, this procedure is the best method for processing gold with the highest karatage (24 Karats = 100 percent gold). This is why gold electrolysis is very common in countries where pure gold pieces are given priority over the ones with low karatage.

Leaching dissolves the gold out of the ore using a chemical solvent. The most common solvent is cyanide, which must be combined with oxygen in a process known as carbon-in-pulp. As the cyanide and oxygen react chemically, gold in the pulp dissolves. When workers introduce small carbon grains to the tank, the gold adheres to the carbon.
