Mill Leaching: a viable substitute for mercury

Replacing mercury addition with cyanidation in ball mills was implemented in one artisanal gold mining operation in Portovelo, Ecuador, achieving 95% of gold extraction in 8 h of mill leaching. This technique demonstrated a drastic improvement in gold recovery. It was found to be a simple, inexpensive technique well accepted by local miners.

Cheap Gold Recovery Process

One alternative tested by Dr. Veiga at University of British Columbia is oxidative cyanidation of the ore in ball mills. But, Filipino decision makers are also considering banning the use of cyanide. So, alternative leaching methods must be developed. Most small-scale miners lack the education to apply such methods.

Gold cyanidation

Gold cyanidation (also known as the cyanide process or the MacArthur-Forrest process) is a hydrometallurgical technique for extracting gold from low-grade ore by converting the gold to a water-soluble coordination complex.It is the most commonly used leaching process for gold extraction..

Mill leaching: a viable substitute for mercury

Oct 01, 2009For batch grinding, the artisanal ball mills are ideal for cyanide leaching. The mill-leaching process was successfully implemented in Portovelo, Ecuador. About 95% of the gold was leached from a pre-concentrate (with 17.3 g Au/tonne) obtained by grinding the ore in Chilean mill and concentrates gold in sluice boxes.

cyanidation of concentrates in small-ball mills is highlighted as the most promising one. Any technique to replace mercury should invest in gravity or flotation concentration in order to reduce the mass of material to be leached or melted. This reduces dramatically capital and operating costs.

Mercury

viable alternative to mercury amalgamation is cyanidation. Recently, this substitute was effectively introduced to an artisanal gold mining operation in Portovelo, Ecuador (Veiga et al., 2009). However, economic and technicalconstraints limit the feasibilityof this technology in the majority of artisanal and small-scale gold mining camps.
