When you mix the finely powdered goldbearing rock with some mercury, the gold within the rock dissolves and forms what's called a gold amalgam, while the rest of the rock is left behind.

Leaching dissolves the gold out of the ore using a chemical solvent. The most common solvent is cyanide, which must be combined with oxygen in a process known as carboninpulp . As the cyanide and oxygen react chemically, gold in the pulp dissolves.

Mar 13, 20180183;32;Take a rock that contains gold in it this process works best on quartz rocks and set it inside a glass jar. Add white cooking vinegar to the jar, covering the entire rock and then some with the vinegar. The acidbased vinegar slowly dissolves the quartz crystals surrounding the gold, leaving only bits of quartz attached to the gold.

Hard Rock Mining Gold and Silver Ore and processing it

It is common that gold ore be processed by two methods gravity is used to remove the coarser gold from an ore and afterward the ore is processed by cyanide to recover the fine particles of gold and silver. Gravity concentration methods are the ones most commonly used by the individual prospector.

Gold extraction

Gold extraction

Normally, the ore is crushed and agglomerated prior to heap leaching. High grade ores and ores resistant to cyanide leaching at coarse particle sizes, require further processing in order to recover the gold values. The processing techniques can include grinding, concentration, roasting, and pressure oxidation prior to cyanidation.

In some cases the gold in the ore is extremely fine sized, and using mercury to capture it makes sense. This is also true for operators processing large quantities of hard rock material. I've done up a web page on using Mercury to capture fine gold and you can view it here. (link to page)

We used mercury to get the gold out of the powdered rock. Gold, like most minerals, can be 'dissolved' in mercury to form what's called an amalgam. An amalgam is a physical mixture, a type of alloy. This is a comparatively straightforward way of separating the gold from the rock, as the rock

Of all the methods of extracting gold amp; processing it from its ore, I used a few to evaluate two principal flowsheets in this case study. The flowsheets utilized operations that involved flotation, cyanidation and gravity concentration. Tests that mirror each of these unit operations were utilized to evaluate the principal flowsheets.
