A novel process was studied to extract economic metals from refractory ores that are difficult to leach with cyanide and ammonium thiosulfate, such as the well-known mangano argentiferous minerals, which are minerals of manganese, iron, and silver. The mineral under consideration originates from the tailings of the Monte del Favor, Hostotipaquillo Jalisco, Mexico.
The gold leaching rate in ammonium thiosulfate in the presence of copper species is mainly controlled by the cathodic process, which is under diffusion or mixed kinetics control. The results of the rotating gold disk leaching study are consistent with those from the electrochemical study. The gold leaching process in ammonium.
Ammonium thiosulfate solution is an ideal lixiviant to extract gold (Au) from electronic wastes (E-wastes) because it is non-toxic, less corrosive, and selective than conventional cyanide or halide solutions. It was reported recently, however, that Au leaching efficiency in ammonium thiosulfate.
Nov 01, 2001 Thiosulfate offers a nontoxic alternative to cyanide for processing gold ores. The mechanism of leaching gold using ammoniacal thiosulfate solution is driven by the Cu(II)-Cu(I) redox couple and is complicated by competing ligands such as NH 3 and S 2 O 3 2−.It is shown that an understanding of the copper speciation and sulfur speciation is required to optimize this system.
Ammonium thiosulphate is an alternative gold leaching Laaviant used to replace cyanide. The current problem of thiosulphate gold leaching is the high reagent consumption, To understand the decomposition chemistry of thiosulphate, solution stability tests were conducted in open and sealed vessek mder ambient temperature.
Thiosulfate leaching of gold (Chen, 2008). This shows how much a mineralogical investigation is important to be performed before leaching study of any gold ore by the thiosulfate process. Several gold localities are scattered in the Arabian Shield of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia which has about 20 million tons of recoverable gold ores.
Here, we present a study of gold leaching, where the gold layer is removed from a microchannel wall within a high aspect ratio channel (8 μm 4 mm cross-section 1 500). The etchant is an aqueous solution of sodium thiosulfate, ammonium hydroxide, and copper sulfate.
Leaching conditions 0.5 M ammonium thiosulfate with 0.05 M CuSO4 concentration at 60 C for 4 h. This study would be useful in understanding the eco-friendly leaching systems of Au and Ag during the hydrometallurgical process of sulﬁde gold ore.
May 26, 2018 Thiourea leaching from an oxidized gold-copper ore with 90-95 gold extraction was also reported (McInnes et al., 1989). However, acid pre-leaching of soluble copper was required in order to reduce thiourea consumption to acceptable levels. Ammoniacal Thiosulfate Leaching. Ammonium thiosulfate has been used in photography for many decades.
May 01, 2003 The copper-catalyzed gold oxidation and reduction mechanisms in ammonium thiosulfate solution were investigated by Eh-pH diagram based on the optimum reagent combination for a 60 (by weight) -75-μm silicate ore containing 16-g t Au with the maximum gold extraction of 92 and the minimum ammonium thiosulfate consumption of 23 kg t for 24-hours of leaching at ambient temperature. The gold.
In a resin-in-leach system, full gold recovery was also achievable with sufficient resin after 24 h leach with 0.06 M fresh ammonium thiosulfate and 2 mM EDTA at an agitation speed of 250 r min. Key words Gold leaching, Thiosulfate, Additives, Leaching kinetics, Thiosulfate stability.
Ammonium thiosulfate is an alternative lixiviant for the hydrometallurgical treatment of sulfide gold ores. The present study is primarily focused on ammonium thiosulfate leaching of gold (Au) and silver (Ag) from the sulfide ore (Sunshin mine in Korea). The main chemical composition of the concentrate was Au (84 ppm), Ag (852 ppm), Fe (18.9 ), Si (23.2 ), and S (21.1 ).
Thiosulfate is considered a non-toxic alternative to cyanide and can leach gold faster than cyanide. In the conventional cyanide process, the recovery of gold and silver from ores is hindered by a variety of metal impurities like copper, arsenic, antimony, zinc and.
1998. Description. The application of ammonium thiosulfate for the treatment of copper-gold ores has been investigated. Leaching studies were conducted with copper minerals, copper minerals with gold addition to solution and copper-gold samples of different copper and gold grades. The behaviour of thiosulfate, tetrathionate and sulfate in.
Jun 02, 2009 Sodium Thiosulfate will leach all of the salts of silver and gold and leave a colorless solution. Pgm salts will leave an orange to red solution. Ammonium Thiosulfate is an alternative to cyanide leaching. It will leach gold, generally at a higher redox rate than cyanide, but does not recover well on charcol. Most such systems use resin recovery.
In the gold extraction process of thiosulfate system, S. 2O 3 2－combined with gold as complexing agent as shown in Equation (1),S 2O 3 2－ was oxidized by oxygenas shown in Equation (2).The reaction of copper ammonium ions with thiosulfate will lead to a large consumption of thiosulfate in the process of gold leaching.
Gold-thiosulfate leach solution containing 0.1 M ammonium thiosulfate (ATS) and 10 mg L Au onto the columns of Amberjet-4200 and IRA-400 res-ins are shown in Fig. 2. The effluent was collected in fractions at different times in order to observe the kinetics of the loading process. not saturated. These results indicate that gold can be removed.
Extraction of gold and silver from Turkish gold ore by ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching, Mineral Processing and Extractive Metallurgy Review, 29, 68-82. Ayl , M.G. and Muir, D.M., 2001. Thiosulfate leaching of gold-A review, Minerals Engineering, 14 (2), 135-174.
Dec 06, 2017 Column leaching tests with thiosulfate further demonstrated that 69 to 78 pct of the gold could be directly recovered while consuming 0.4 to 5.4 kg thiosulfate mt ore. Continuous recycle of the leach solution led to increased leaching times for comparable precious metal recoveries, but also significantly increased the concentration of gold in.
Jul 21, 2019 A process of biooxidation followed by thiosulfate leaching of gold from refractory gold concentrate was investigated. Mineralogical studies on the concentrate showed that very fine gold grains ( 10 μm) were encapsulated in pyrite and arsenopyrite, while the proportion of monomer gold was only 21 . The gold-bearing sample was identified as a high-sulfur fine-sized wrapped-type refractory gold.
1. Introduction. The study of copper adsorption on anion exchange resins has to do with the recovery of gold as present in the solutions produced by leaching gold ores in an ammonia-thiosulfate media, where copper is the main impurity in the system. The ammonia-thiosulfate system with copper offers high gold leaching rates compared to the cyanide system, because the reaction is catalyzed by.
