Cyanide Process - Gold Cyanidation Process Gold

2018-10-19  The gold is mixed with the sodium cyanide which leads to the following Elsener’s equation and reaction. This is done to make soluble gold; Now the gold is soluble. This method of making soluble gold is known as leaching. In the process of leaching, a dilute form of sodium cyanide is added into the ore containing the gold.

Leaching of gold and copper minerals in cyanide

2005-8-1  Clearly, the mixed potential for gold leaching in the Cu(CN) 3 2− solution is ca. 200 mV more positive than that measured in the free cyanide solution. The lower leach rate and more positive mixed potential for Cu(CN) 3 2− suggest that the anodic half reaction of leaching (gold oxidation to gold cyanide) occurs at more positive potentials in Cu(CN) 3 2− than for free cyanide solutions.

CDC Facts About Cyanide

Cyanide salts are used in metallurgy for electroplating, metal cleaning, and removing gold from its ore. Cyanide gas is used to exterminate pests and vermin in ships and buildings. If accidentally swallowed, chemicals found in acetonitrile-based products that are used to remove artificial nails can produce cyanide when metabolized by the body.
