Effect of Lead Nitrate on Gold Leach Kinetics ...

l want to do a project on the effect of lead nitrate on gold dissoluton. the mine where l am attached processes a dump with a head grade of 4.32g/t, tails 2g/t and a cyanide consumption of 4kg/t. l think reason for the high tails is because of the sulphides in the dump. l would like your help on how to go about this experiement.

DISSOLUTION OF GOLD WITH CYANIDE REPLACING REAGENTS

the production of gold are based on the use of cyanide (Hilson, 2006). In this method a weak sodium cyanide solution (NaCN) of 100-500 ppm is used. Since the Baia Mare disaster in Romania in January 2000, the use of cyanide has been resisted. Germany passed a decree in 2002 prohibiting mines from using cyanide in leaching processes.
