The common processes for recovery of gold solution includes: Carbon adsorption, Merrill Crowe process, electrowinning and ion exchange / solvent extraction. Traditionally, Merrill Crowe process was used to remove gold from a cyanide solution by using zinc dust to precipitate gold from its solution.
Materials almost free of platinum group metals are treated by the Wohlwill electrolytic process, which is widely used in major gold refineries, often in combination with the Miller process. Impure gold anodes are dissolved anodically in hydrochloric acid electrolyte, and 99.99% pure gold is deposited at the cathode.
The process of extracting metal ores buried deep underground is called Mining. The metal ores are found in the earths crust in varying abundance. The extraction of metals from ores is what allows us to use the minerals in the ground! The ores are very different from the finished metals that we see in buildings and bridges.Video Duration: 30 min
Bleach is the chemical compound sodium hypochlorite. When combined with hydrochloric acid, the mixture produces chlorine that dissolves gold from gold ore. This was the first commercial method used for gold extraction. Place the ore into the mortar and grind it to the size of sand grains.
This activity models a modern method for the extraction of gold and other precious metals such as silver from rocks. The steps of the Washoe Process modeled here include the grinding and preparation of ore for extraction with mercury, and the reduction of the precious metal so it can be processed into the pure metal.
The Chemistry of Gold Extraction is an extensively revised and comprehensively updated edition of the well known reference first published in 1992. It provides the broad base of knowledge that is now required by all those working in the gold extraction and gold processing industries.4.7/5
