Influence of gold mineralogy on its flotation recovery

2013-8-9  Therefore, for an improved gold recovery by flotation, it is ideal to have a considerable understanding of mineralogy and association of gold in the flotation feed. The mineralogical characterisation should be able to identify the gold-bearing minerals, show how the gold particles are distributed in each fraction and also to show how gold particles are associated with the gangue minerals.

17 - Flotation of Gold Ores

2017-2-16  However, very little is known about the flotation properties of gold contained in various ores and the sulphides that carry gold. The sparse distribution of discrete gold minerals, as well as their exceedingly low concentrations in the ore, is one of the principal reasons for the lack of fundamental work on the flotation of gold-bearing ores.

Optimization and mechanism of gold-bearing sulfide

2014-6-5  In order to overcome the difficulty of extracting gold from gold-bearing sulfide ore by cyanide process, flotation was adopted based on mineralogical analysis. Mineralogy shows that gold particles are of superfine structure and mainly enclosed by sulfide ores. Primary gold-bearing sulfide ore is fine-grained pyrite and arsenopyrite.

Gold Mineralogy SGS

While the protocol is complex, the sizing, pre-concentration and final concentration steps are crucial to yielding a sample large enough to be both statistically valid and still able to quantify the gold present in the sample. Gravity, flotation and cyanidation are used on the various sulfide minerals.
