Mining cyanide remediation

Apr 22, 2019 Biological methods of cyanide removal. It is well evidenced that phytoremediation of thiocyanate and metal–cyanide complexes and microbial biodegradation of cyanide from ore mining wastewaters are the most successful methods of cyanide removal (Dash et al. 2009). In bacterial bioremediation process, free cyanide and metal-complexed cyanides

    Apr 01, 2016 Biological cyanide removal from industrial wastes. Compounds containing the cyano (−C N) group are present in many different forms in nature, but the toxicity of these compounds depends on their capacity to release free cyanide. Cyanide is frequently found in metal–cyanide complexes because of its high affinity for transition metals [3, 4, 5]

    Cyanide and the Mining Industry The cyanide anion is a simple compound consisting only of carbon and nitrogen (CN-). Cyanide has many uses, particularly in the chemical and mining industries because of its strong tendency to form 'complexes' with gold, silver, iron, copper, and many other metals. Even weak cyanide solutions can be used

    Jan 04, 2015 In recent years the use of cyanide in gold mining has become the dominant means by which gold is extracted from a body of ore. The mercury amalgamation process had previously been used but recovered only about 60 per cent of an ore body’s gold. In contrast, leaching finely ground ore with cyanide can recover up to 97 per cent of the ore body

    The use of sodium, potassium or calcium cyanide in the gold mining industry poses a potential environmental threat. Cyanide is a very poisonous substance which may infiltrate water sources or escape into the air. Thus it may be inhaled by human beings, drunk if it gets into the potable water system, or may enter the food chain unobtrusively

    Electrowinning – This method is primarily used in gold processing but has found its way into cyanide remediation. This method performs well in concentrated solutions. Hydrolysis/Distillation – Free cyanide is hydrolyzed in water producing aqueous hydrogen cyanide, which, in turn, will volatilize as hydrocyanic gas. It is then distilled and captured for recycling or release into the atmosphere

    How is cyanide used in mining? A sodium cyanide solution is commonly used to leach gold from ore. There are two types of leaching: Heap leaching: In the open, cyanide solution is sprayed over huge heaps of crushed ore spread atop giant collection pads. The cyanide dissolves the gold from the ore into the solution as it trickles through the heap

The cyanide solution is buffered to a pH of about 11 to keep cyanide from forming hydrogen cyanide, which can be lost through volatilization. The cyanide in solution complexes with gold (and other metals) extracting the metals from the ore. The cyanide solution is captured by

However, if iron cyanide must also be removed to low levels, then the pH is lowered somewhat to increase the precipitation of copper-iron-cyanides at the expense of lowering the removal efficiencies of copper, nickel and zinc
