Extracting ores Mining of mineral resources Siyavula

This extraction method is still used today. The bloomery is replaced with a blast furnace, but the chemistry is still the same. Iron ore, a type of coal called coke (which contains 85% carbon) and lime are added to the top of the blast furnace. Hot air provides the oxygen for the reaction. The temperature of a blast furnace can be up to 1200°C.

CN103290232A Method for extracting gold from

The invention relates to a method for extracting gold through potassium ferricyanide. The method is characterized in that the gold is extracted from the auriferous ores under an alkaline environment at normal temperature and pressure with nontoxic ferricyanide serving as a gold leaching agent and calcium peroxide serving as a leaching adding agent; and the method is a completely novel cyanide

US3920403A Method of desorbing gold from activated

Gold in the form of its cyanide complex is desorbed from activated carbon by contacting the carbon with a stripping liquid at temperatures above that 130*C but below the decomposition temperature of the gold cyanide complex. The stripping liquid may comprise water, dilute caustic or dilute caustic cyanide.
