Method and system for pressure oxidation of sulfide gold

Oct 09 2007 A novel method demonstrates that the oxidation and dissolution of gold and silver in alkaline cyanide solution can be conducted simultaneously in the same autoclave in less than 90 minutes with a recovery that exceeds 96 Because mild operating conditions of 80C and 06 MPa oxygen pressure are used in this process low cost materials of construction can be utilized for the autoclave Pressure Oxidation Pressure oxidation is employed to liberate gold and silver in refractory sulfide concentrates often and ores The main pressure oxidation products from iron sulfide minerals are sulfuric acid and metal sulfates and hematite Depending on the conditions within the autoclave acid containing iron compounds can be formed
