Various methods such as gravity concentration, flotation, panning, pyrometallurgy, cyanidation etc are available for the extraction of gold metal from its ores. Amongst these methods, cyanidation is the most common method used in the leaching of gold from the ore. This process involves the dissolution of gold containing ores in dilute cyanide solution in the presence of lime and oxygen. For refractory ores such as sulfide ores and carbonaceous ores which are not susceptible to direct cyanide… Expand
