The role of microorganisms in gold processing and

Microorganisms play many roles in the biogeochemical cycling of gold and can be utilised in a number of ways for gold processing and recovery. Biooxidation of refractory gold bearing sulphide ores with acidophilic iron and sulphur-oxidising microorganisms has been already commercially practised since the 1980s, first in bioreactors and subsequently as heap leaching operations. Although

This review examines current literature on the role of microorganisms in gold processing and recovery. The review covers aspects such as the biotechnical pre-treatment of gold ores and concentrates, microbially catalysed permeability enhancement of ore bodies, gold solubilisation through biooxidation and complexation with biogenic lixiviants, and microbially mediated gold recovery and

Gold CIL & CIP Gold Leaching Process Explained CCD

In summary, the lower the concentration of gold in solution, the greater the driving force for gold dissolution to occur, although in a mass transport controlled reaction it is debatable what role this plays in gold leaching. An alternative explanation for this phenomenon is the reversible adsorption of Au(I) cyanide onto ore constituents. The gold adsorption is reversed when the solution is
