Estimation of gold inventory in large carbon in leach

01/05/2011· The change of inventory may therefore strongly impact on the production figures and especially the plant recovery at the end of a week or a month. This paper is concerned with the estimation of the gold inventory in the carbon in leach (CIL) tanks of a gold processing plant in Quebec, Canada. For that particular plant the CIL tanks may contain

Estimation of gold inventory in large carbon in leach

Indeed a 600 m 3 CIP/CIL loaded with 15 g/L of activated coal charged with 8000 g of gold/ton of coal may retain up to 72 000 g (2200 troy oz) of gold. The estimation of the inventory implies the determination of the concentration of carbon in a tank and of the gold content of the species contained in the tanks. This paper assesses the errors associated with the sampling of CIL tanks to

Estimation Errors for Gold Inventory in Large Carbon-In

01/01/2011· Carbon in pulp and/or carbon in leach tanks may contain gold inventory as large as 72 000 g (2 200 troy oz) of gold which needs to be estimated from measurements obtained from sampling the material contained in a tank. Sampling and analysis introduce measurement errors that could be systematic and/or random. This paper examines the effect of measurement errors on the estimation of the gold

The process design of gold leaching and carbon-in-pulp

The process design of gold leaching and carbon-in-pulp circuits contaminants. These are removed by thermal regeneration of the eluted carbon, typically in a rotary kiln at temperatures of 650–750°C. Regeneration is carried out in a steam atmosphere to minimize carbon degradation due to oxidation. The eluted and regenerated carbon is screened at about 0.8 mm to remove any undersize carbon

Improving the process performance of gold cyanide leaching

In the gold mining industry today, cyanide leaching is the prevailing method for solubilizing and recovering gold. Most of the new gold that is mined each year is processed via adsorption of gold cyanide onto activated carbon (Fleming et al. 2011). Typically, the carbon in pulp (CIP) or carbon in leach (CIL) process is used for gold recovery. These

ACTIVATED CARBON IN GOLD RECOVERY Kemix

Macropores (500 to 2000 Å in diameter) these are the large pores that run from the surface of the activated carbon into the interior. The macropores allow for the rapid movement of adsorbates (species that will be adsorbed by the carbon, e.g. gold) into the activated carbon granules.

Emission estimation technique manual

is the extraction of gold from the crushed ore using cyanide and carbon adsorption. This can be done using carbon in pulp (CIP) and carbon in leach (CIL) processes where the gold-cyanide complex binds preferentially to activated carbon. Zinc dust is used as an alternative to carbon at some facilities.

Dynamic simulation of the carbon-in-pulp and carbon-in

Carbon-in-leach and carbon-in-pulp are continuous processes that use activated carbon in a cascade of large agitated tanks, which have been widely used to recover or concentrate precious metals in gold extraction plants. In the carbon-in-pulp process adsorption occurs after the leaching cascade section of the plant, and in the carbon-in-leach process leaching and adsorption occur

20/10/2014· The carbon has a very high affinity for the aurocyanide complex and adsorbs the gold out of solution resulting in very high loadings on the carbon (typically 1000-4000 g/t). At the end of the leach the loaded carbon is removed from the slurry and the adsorbed gold is stripped out at high temperature and pressure with sodium hydroxide and cyanide solutions to form a high value electrolyte

Function Of Activated Carbon For Gold Mining

Activated carbon adsorbs dissolved gold from gold leach pulp complex to be absorbed through the pores of the carbon. The most cost-effective process is to create adsorption of the dissolved gold onto activated carbon,resulting in an Easier solid- solid separation based on size To Achieve this ore particles must typically be Smaller than 100 μm while the carbon

Bulk Activated Charcoal CAS 7440-44-0 Brenntag

This process opens up millions of pores between carbon atoms. The large network of pores in activated carbon provides an exceptionally large surface area. For example, a pound of carbon has over 35 acres, or almost 100 football fields, of surface area. The highly porous surface area adsorbs contaminants from gases or liquids. After the carbon is activated, it then gets crushed or pulverized
