How does the Cyanide heap leaching process work and

2021-4-2  Cyanide leach mining is a type of gold mining that uses cyanide to extract gold from the surrounding rock. First, the rock that contains gold (the ore) is dug out of the ground, leaving behind a large open pit. Then, the ore is crushed into small pieces. The crushed ore is placed in large piles, called heaps, and sprayed with cyanide solution.

2020-1-3  Although gold leaching can be performed using solutions with relatively low cyanide concentrations (100–500 mg L −1) [3, 4], most mining companies use sodium cyanide in excess.The problem is that leaching is not a selective process and cyanide can react with different metals existing in the ores (e.g., mercury, zinc, copper, iron, and nickel) forming various complexes.
