extraction of gold by chlorination

How to Leach Gold Ore With Chlorination Sciencing

Apr 25, 2017  Gold can be leached from stone through alkaline or acidic-based products, including halogens, such as chlorine, iodine and bromine. Halogens are reactive, non-metal elements with seven electrons in their outer shell which allow them to easily combine with other elements. The use of chlorine

Newbery–Vautin chlorination process - Wikipedia

Claude Theodore James Vautin, a man of much practical experience of gold mining and extraction in Queensland, Australia, together with James Cosmo Newbery, analytical chemist to the government of Victoria, have developed a process which they claim to combine all the advantages of the foregoing methods, and by the addition of certain improvements in the machinery and mode of treatment to overcome the difficulties which have hitherto prevented the general adoption of the chlorination process.

Gold Chlorination Processes Methods

In Liddell’s Handbook of Nonferrous Metallurgy, Vol. 2, 1945, there is to be found a very complete account of the uses of chlorine as applied to the recovery of gold and silver, in Chlorination Processes Methods. Introducing the chapter entitled “Chlorine Metallurgical Processes” Liddell says: Chlorine as a metallurgical agent appears to have lost ground during recent years, and much ...

The Chlorination of Gold Ores.

The Chlorination of Gold Ores. By Mr. Donald Clark, M.M.E., B.C.E. The ideal method for extracting fine gold would be to dis-solve out the gold with some solvent which would not attack other minerals present. The solvents known 6o years ago were chlorine, bromine, and cyanide of potassium. Yet in

Extraction of Gold

Bromine acts more energetically than chlorine, and has also been employed in the extraction. The recovery of the gold is effected similarly, and the bromine is then liberated by the action of chlorine, but it is impossible to prevent loss of bromine. Cyanide-process The extraction of gold by the cyanide-method is of great technical importance.
