Paper: Characterization of Cyanide in Gold Mine

However, at most gold mines in South Africa, cyanide is simply discharged with the effluent and tailings based on the assumption it will decompose within a relatively short period of time. However the distribution and fate of cyanide in the environment upon release from the tailings

Recovering Cyanide From Gold Plant Tailings

The most common cyanide species in gold plant tailings are free cyanide anions (usually 100 – 500 mg/L) and the cyano complexes of copper, zinc, iron and sometimes nickel.

Characterization and availability of cyanide in solid

The aim of this study was to investigate the availability and fate of cyanide in gold mill solid tailings. For this purpose, aged (6-9 years) and recently discharged (3 months) tailings were sampled at various depths from two gold mining sites in Quebec (Canada).

Determination and detoxification of cyanide in gold

2019-10-11  The cyanide species in the gold tailings are classified as free cyanide, weak acid dissociation, and metallocyanide complexes. Several methods, such as colorimetric, titrimetric, and electrochemical, have been developed to determine cyanide concentrations in gold mine effluents.

Mathematical modeling of fate and transport of

2020-4-18  In this study, the amount of cyanide in gold mine tailings is modeled as conceptual, statistical, and mathematical to determine environmental risk level and also to estimate the fate and transport of cyanide in tailings. Therefore, 116 points were selected for sampling from three levels of gold mine tailings and analyzed by colorimetric method.

The Dangers of Cyanide in Gold Mining — Peer Ledger

2021-6-8  The worst cyanide spill ever was probably the 2000 disaster at the Aural Gold mine in Romania, in which a tailings dam ruptured, spilling 3.5 million cubic feet of cyanide-contaminated waste into the Tisza and Danube Rivers. Not only did this spill have terrible environmental impacts, it also caused a significant threat to human health.

Paper: Characterization of Cyanide in Gold Mine

Abstract: Numerous old gold sand and slimes tailings dumps on the Witwatersrand have been reprocessed since the 1980s for residual gold extraction using cyanide as a lixiviant. There are numerous technologies available by which many cyanide species may be decomposed. However, at most gold mines in South Africa, cyanide is simply discharged with the effluent and tailings

A Critical Review of the Effects of Gold Cyanide

The main WAD cyanide complexes in gold mine tailings are stable in the TSF environment but can release cyanide ions under varying environmental conditions including ingestion and absorption by wildlife. Therefore distinction between free, WAD and total cyanide forms in tailings water for regulatory purposes is justified.

Decomposition of Cyanide from Gold Leaching

Cyanidation is widely used by most gold mine worldwide and will remain prevail in years (or decades) to come, while cyanide is hazardous, toxic pollutants whose presence in wastewater and tailings can seriously affect human and its environment; hence, it is necessary to control these contaminants. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects through the investigation of changes in pH ...

How to Do Cyanide Removal in Gold Tailings? CNFREE

2020-7-24  Therefore, we need to treat the tailings after gold extraction to eliminate the harm of cyanide, which is cyanide removal. 1. Main Methods. There are three main methods for cyanide removal, which are: 1) Natural Decomposition Method. Volatilization method, biological decomposition method, photolysis method. 2) Oxidation Method

Removal of thiocyanate and cyanide from gold mine

Gold mine tailings water has been considered for recycling so that fresh water consumption can be reduced. However, the tailings water contains, along with a small amount of free cyanide, a high concentration of thiocyanate that can decrease the efficiency of the flotation of the sulfide minerals containing gold.
