Precipitation Of Gold And Silver From Cyanide

Gold Precipitation Methods Mineral Processing & Metallurgy

ZINC-DUST PRECIPITATION OF GOLD. For many years precipitation by zinc dust, as by the Merrill-Crowe process, has been recognized as the most efficient and economical method of precipitating gold and silver from cyanide solutions.Embodying precipitate filters of the plate-and-frame type, of the vacuum-leaf type, or of the more recently developed pressure bag-filter type, the process is in use

Recovery of Gold by Precipitation with Zinc

The recovery of the precious metals like gold and silver from the cyanide solution is almost universally accomplished by precipitation with zinc, either in the form of fine threads or of dust (the condensed fume recovered in the process of retorting the metal).. The phenomena of precipitation are essentially electrical and may be traced to the action set up by two metals of different

Refining Zinc Precipitates: Cyanide Leaching of Gold

Of the various methods of refining the gold-silver-zinc precipitates of the cyanide process, smelting with lead, after removal of the zinc, is the best. Gold and silver are precipitated from cyanide solutions by zinc, as alloys or intimate mixtures of those metals with zinc.

How to Precipitate Mercury from Gold Silver Cyanide Leach

Metal sulfides, such as calcium, sodium, silver, zinc, and iron sulfides, have been used to precipitate mercury from gold cyanide solutions. Silver sulfide would tie up considerable silver, and iron sulfide forms ferrocyanide, resulting in cyanide loss.
