Re-Processing Gold Tailings in South Africa

sulphides (mainly pyrite) at pH 4.5 to produce a bulk rougher concentrate and rougher tailings. In one of the options investigated at the pre-feasibility stage, the rougher concentrate will be cleaned to produce a low grade pyrite concentrate and cleaner scavenger tailings, both of which will be processed to recover uranium and gold.

An overview of Southern African PGM smelting

2014-5-26  unique Bushveld Complex geological formation. South Africa’s PGM output is derived almost exclusively from the Bushveld Complex, with only about 0.1 per cent coming from the gold deposits of the Witwatersrand and Free State, and the Phalaborwa copper deposit. Platinum group metals now constitute South Africa’s largest mining export

CYANIDE AND CYANIDE COMPLEXES IN THE GOLD-

2016-6-14  The carbon-in pulp (CIP) process, which was developed to its present form in South Africa during the 1970s, is considered to be the most significant advance in gold recovery in recent years. By 1995, there were 42 CIP circuits installed in South Africa (Mpephu, 2004).

Gold processing - Mining and concentrating Britannica

2021-7-29  Gold is then leached from the carbon particles by a strong solution of sodium cyanide and sodium hydroxide, and it is recovered from solution by electrowinning directly onto steel wool or by the Merrill-Crowe process. In the latter process, the gold-bearing solution is deoxygenated and passed through a filter-press, where the gold is displaced from solution by reduction with zinc metal powder.

Geometallurgical Approach for Implications of Ore

2019-7-22  Considering the incessant declines in gold production in South Africa, the notion of ore blending is a very relevant concept in modern high tonnage production mines. Ore blending is employed as a method to merge desirable qualities from different ores types from the same mine and/or different mines in order to produce a desirable feed in terms of both quality and quantity.

Gold processing Britannica

2020-8-18  The gold was concentrated by washing away the lighter river sands with water, leaving behind the dense gold particles, which could then be further concentrated by melting. By 2000 bc the process of purifying gold-silver alloys with salt to remove the silver was developed. The mining of alluvial deposits and, later, lode or vein deposits required crushing prior to gold extraction, and this consumed
