Carbon Leach And Cyanide

Carbon in leach (CIL) is an important step in gold processing that involves simultaneous adsorption and leaching. While the mechanism of leaching and adsorption are well known, the effect of different operating and design parameters on the dynamics and performance of CIL circuit are not yet studied.

Carbonaceous gold ores can have the carbon adsorb the gold onto its surface, and as a result will not be recovered from the pregnant solution. Leaching gold from sulfide ores is difficult, at best. Generally, the recovery for cyanide leaching of sulfide or refractory ores is no better than 30%, which is not a worthwhile venture.

benefit of CIL (carbon in leach) was investigated. Finally, bottle roll tests as well as plant tests were conducted to determine the influence of residence time, as it was thought that this may be a limiting factor.
