Sample text

Loaded carbon recovered from CIL is eluted and the (warm) pregnant eluate treated in a zinc precipitation circuit. The filter cakes (from the CCD stream and the CIL stream) are calcined and smelted to produce bullion which is then sold and transported to the refinery. Whole of ore processing In whole of ore processing, flotation tails contain gold and silver in several forms: in non-sulfide gangue, in minerals that are not amenable to flotation, and as fine gold not recovered by gravity or flotation.

The concentrate is then diluted to 50 per cent solids w/w before it is leached at one per cent cyanide concentration for 48 hours. The slurry then reports to a three stage CCD washing circuit to recover the high-grade solution from the leached solids. The overflow solution from the CCD circuit is pumped to the electrowinning circuit. The underflow from the final CCD thickener is pumped to the head of the CIL circuit. This is done to allow additional leaching of this slurry to ensure complete leaching of the concentrate.
