submicroscopic gold inclusions within sulphide minerals such as arsenopyrite and pyrite. such ores require a pre-treatment process to alter or destroy the sulphide matrix and render the gold accessible to cyanide and oxygen (gudyanga et al., 1999). the gold in high-sulphur and high-arsenic refractory gold concentrate (hgc) is encapsulated

gold ores are considered refractory if gold extractions from a conventional cyanidation process are less than 80% even after fine grinding. 1) arsenic-bearing refractory gold ore has stones extremely difficult to deal with. in the stones, gold is locked up in arsenic mineral matrix as the form of microscopic or submicroscopic lattice.

a "refractory" gold ore is an ore that has ultra fine gold particles disseminated throughout its gold occluded minerals. these ores are naturally resistant to recovery by standard cyanidation and carbon adsorption processes. these refractory ores require pre-treatment in order for cyanidation to be effective in recovery of the gold. a refractory ore generally contains sulfide minerals, organic
refractory gold ores factors affecting process selection nigel briggs, david lunt and ian ritchie introduction the treatment of refractory gold ores, in particular the competing technologies and their relative advantages and economics, has become a major issue for the industry and a topic of interest at conferences.
this stone presents initial findings of a project examining novel processes for the treatment of refractory sulphidic gold concentrates. non-oxidative roasting of such concentrates for 12 hours at 750176;c resulted in the finely disseminated gold agglomerating to form discrete grains. the pyrite and arsenopyrite decomposed to form pyrrhotite, whilst the labile sulphur and arsenic driven...
