  • Characterization and availability of cyanide in solid mine

    The aim of this study was to investigate the availability and fate of cyanide in gold mill solid tailings. For this purpose, aged (6-9 years) and recently discharged (3 months) tailings were sampled at various depths from two gold mining sites in Quebec (Canada). A physicochemical characterization of the tailings along with a bacterial enumeration was performed and batch-leaching tests with water and caustic solution were conducted to assess the soluble cyanide

    08.02.2021· This study investigated the distribution, speciation, bioaccumulation, and pollution of heavy metals in soils from the Yueliangbao gold tailings area in central China, where gold was extracted by cyanidation. The results show that the concentrations of Cu, Pb, Zn, Mn, Mo, and Cd in the soils of the tailings pond were higher than those in the local background. The

  • A critical review of the effects of gold cyanide-bearing

    01.10.2007· Cyanide-bearing tailings storage facilities are environmental control structures to contain tailings, a standard practice in the mining industry. Cyanide concentrations below 50 mg/L weak-acid-dissociable (WAD) are deemed safe to wildlife but are considered an interim benchmark for discharge into tailings storage facilities (TSFs).

    01.12.2006· The gold mining process at Kolar gold field (KGF) mines has generated about 32 million tons of tailings. Gold was extracted from the mined ores using cyanidation technique that involved dissolution of gold in the ore by water soluble alkali metal cyanides (example, sodium cyanide or potassium cyanide). Of the several dumps that received the mine tailings only the

  • Passive treatment for the removal of residual cyanide in drainage

    In the gold mining industry, tailings from the cyanide leaching process contain variable quantities of a number of cyanide compounds; as tailings are transferred to a pond for sedimentation and consolidation of the solid fraction, the supernatant water contains residual cyanide.

  • Cyanide Use in Gold Mining Earthworks

    How is cyanide used in mining? A sodium cyanide solution is commonly used to leach gold from ore. There are two types of leaching: Heap leaching: In the open, cyanide solution is sprayed over huge heaps of crushed ore spread atop giant collection pads. The cyanide dissolves the gold from the ore into the solution as it trickles through the heap. The pad collects the now metal-impregnated solution which is stripped of gold

  • BACKGROUND NOTE ON CYANIDE IN GOLD MINING

    Cyanide use in mining Gold typically occurs at very low concentrations in ores less than 10 g/ton. The most used process for gold extraction is hydrometallurgical recovery (gold cyanidation), which involves a “leaching” step during which the gold is dissolved in an aqueous medium, followed by the separation of the gold bearing solution from the residues. Gold is
