    Sodium Thiosulphate Gold Leaching

    The gold industry has been seeking alternative reagents for leaching gold from low-grade ores for the past 25 years. The cost and transport of cyanide, the poor recovery of gold from carbonaceous ores, the lack of selectivity of cyanide towards copper minerals and the cost of waste treatment are real factors which can make cyanide unattractive in some circumstances. However there are also

Thiosulphate leaching is a process that removes gold from gold bearing ores without the use of cyanide. Although not as aggressive a leaching agent as cyanide, thiosulphate offers several technological advantages including its lower toxicity and greater efficiency with gold deposits associated with preg-robbing ores. The thiosulphate leaching

Oxidative pre-treatment in thiosulphate leaching of

The acid wash did not dissolve any gold showing that no adsorbed gold complexes were present on the mineral surfaces in the sulphide ore. A gold recovery of 91% was achieved in the direct ammoniacal thiosulphate leaching with 0.25 M thiosulphate, 1 M ammonia and 12 mM cupric ions after 24 h, and 100% gold extraction was obtained at doubled ammonia and thiosulphate concentrations ().

Thiosulfate leaching of gold—A review ScienceDirect

Thiosulfate leaching can be considered a non-toxic process, the gold dissolution rates can be faster than conventional cyanidation and, due to the decreased interference of foreign cations, high gold recoveries can be obtained from the thiosulfate leaching of complex and carbonaceous-type ores. In addition, thiosulfate can be cheaper than cyanide.

Thiosulphate as an alternative to cyanide for gold

Jul 18, 2013· Thiosulphate is an attractive alternative reagent to cyanide for processing gold ores. It is relatively cheap and non-toxic, forms relatively strong gold and silver complexes, and readily leaches gold ores in ammoniacal solutions, catalysed by Cu(II). It is particularly suited to carbonaceous ores where the recovery of gold by cyanide is poor.
